Review: GNOG

GNOG isn't just a clever puzzle game with vivid color schemes and a cool name. It also has the distinct pleasure of evoking long-lost memories of my favorite childhood toy line: Mighty Max. Talk about making a great first impression!   read

Watching Double Fine make games is fascinating as ever

Double Fine is in the midst of Amnesia Fortnight 2017. If you're anything like me, these game jams are less about the end result -- four playable prototypes, some of which were ideas voted on and chosen by the public -- and more about the j...   read

Review: Full Throttle Remastered

If there's one video game genre I missed out on, it's the point-and-click adventure titles. Hell, my first time with one was when I played Day of the Tentacle Remastered during the beginning of the year, which left me impressed with its Chu...   read

The answer to that question is obviously "yes" because you're here wondering what the heck all this mystery box talk is about. We don't know! That's why it's a mystery box and not a box with plans laid bare. Here's a tweet from Tim Schafer:   read

Double Fine-published GNOG is tactile, satisfying, indie as hell

When I first saw GNOG at IndieCade a few years back, I wasn't quite sure what to make of it. The game reminded me of those Fidget Cubes people seem to like so much -- more of an oddity to poke at than a traditional "game." And that's f...   read

Review: Everything

At first glance, a game with a title like "Everything" seems like it might be difficult to describe. Like trying to pitch a show about nothing. Fortunately, things get quite a bit easier if you break it down a bit. Everything is a game abou...   read

In some ways, Tim Schafer's Full Throttle fits in better in 2017 than 1995

With a press of the PS4's touchpad, I quickly switched between Full Throttle's visuals from 1995 and what it looks like in the remaster. It's not a new trick -- both Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle had remasters with the same fea...   read

Double Fine picks up Ooblets, a real cute game about farming and creature collecting

Ooblets... Ooblets. Where do I know that name from? Ah, right! It was listed among Patrick's top 42 indie games to watch for in 2017 where he alluringly summed it up as "Pokémon meets Harvest Moon." In the game, you'll raise and batt...   read

Review: Headlander

Headlander knows what it is but doesn't know what it wants to be. The tutorial gives you a singular impression -- this game is a puzzler with light action elements, à la The Fall (a comparison I was unable to shake, even as...   read

Double Fine's Headlander now has a release date of July 26 on PC and PS4, and if you haven't seen any footage of it yet, you should probably watch it -- it looks bonkers. It has that old school sci-fi vibe, especially with the concept of fr...   read

What if MHXX on Switch have local splitscreen mode? I mean, it probably wont, but it would be really cool, right?
