Admire the world killing itself in DEFCON VR

Spectating a multi-player match can be a lot of fun. Sometimes you pick up on new skills and other times you just need to take a break and watch others crack under pressure. It can fulfill multiple needs, but it does lack something. I guess...   read

Spooky Adventures in Babysitting with 2Dark

Two things I'm very weary of in life: kids and developers mostly remembered for big hits from 25+ years ago. Look, if you've ever played Amy, you'll understand where I'm coming from. Even so, someone thought I was the ideal person to play 2...   read

VA-11 HALL-A gets a free Prologue Redux update

VA-11 HALL-A has been a pretty big hit for developer Sukeban Games. The game may not be known around the world, but it has garnered a dedicated fan following on Steam. That isn't too shabby for a relatively low-key visual novel about bar te...   read

The SoulKeeper VR has a lot of potential in a relatively untapped space

VR didn't catch on as much as some hardware manufacturers and developers would have liked. The kits are just so pricey, and so niche, considering that they need high-end PCs to run. But another barrier to entry is the current game selection...   read

Dear Esther's Landmark Edition releasing on PC tomorrow, free upgrade for previous owners

Dear Esther may not be that great of a game, but it did launch a fascination with an entire sub-genre. Dubbed the "Walking Simulator," these games weave a dramatic tale all while providing audiovisual feedback in lieu of traditional gamepla...   read

Yeah, I'd take a first person Castlevania dungeon crawler

Turning classic games on their head can be a lot of fun. Genre flipping is always a risk, but if it pans out, it can create a whole new fanbase. The creator of the Evan Yeti webcomic wants to do just that, tweeting out a work in progress sc...   read

Human: Fall Flat hilariously bumbles its way onto PS4 and Xbox One

Human: Fall Flat is one of those games that has an incredibly on-the-nose title. It's a ragdoll puzzler, the kind of thing where your "human" will fall flat over and over again. Chances are that it's only through partial fault of your...   read

Review: Dungeon Souls

I have conquered the first level of Dungeon Souls. Its boulders and explosion-traps were ineffectual; its skeletons and bats (who are also skeletons!) have been reduced to glaringly bright coins and shards of bone. I have activated the last...   read

FTL team reveals new strategy kaiju game Into the Breach

It feels like it's been forever since we last heard from Subset Games (or as you may know the studio, "those people who made FTL: Faster Than Light.") FTL Advanced Edition came out in 2014, and since then I just assumed Subset's employees t...   read

Snake Pass brings David Wise on board, days after its Switch announcement

Snake Pass, revealed late last year, always looked like a neat little modern take on Snake Rattle 'n' Roll for the NES, but it never really grabbed me -- until this week, that is. The team over at Sumo Digital just announced that David Wise...   read

No Code and Devolver team up for horror compilation Stories Untold

I'm glad I came across this trailer, because if I hadn't, I might've overlooked Stories Untold. On the surface, this is a text adventure game, but that simple descriptor doesn't quite encapsulate it, as evidenced by this intriguing teaser....   read

Review: Bleed 2

When Bleed came out in 2012, it was a great throwback to run-and-gun platformers of the late '80s and early '90s like Contra and Metal Slug. The sequel looks a lot better, builds on the foundation established in the first game beautifu...   read

Review: We Are Chicago

Movies often base their plotlines and characters on “true events” to try and elicit a cheap emotional reaction in audiences. When one learns that the events unfolding before them actually happened to someone, it should become a ...   read

Nidhogg creator's Flywrench comes to PS4 next week

Before the crazed fencing game Nidhogg and its divisive-looking sequel (that's genuinely growing on me), there was Flywrench, a game "about piloting an aerobatic ship through the depths of space." Some of you will know about Flywrench from...   read

Party Hard 2 has a new psycho killer protagonist

I probably should've watched this debut trailer for Party Hard 2 with an eye on the scornful new protagonist or any potential stray details that might've popped up, but I was too distracted by the vibrant lighting and colors to take notice...   read

Kimura keeps it real part 2: 'Killing is part of humanity, just as is being in love'

In part one of our interview series with Yoshiro Kimura, I asserted that Kimura-san is the game dev equivalent of Bob Ross. Before announcing that opinion, I should have remembered that not everyone thinks the image of a boy kissing a frog ...   read

Wandersong will assuage our eardrums with its melodious gameplay in 2018
