Remember Ouya? Well its back, in Razer form!

Man, the Ouya! It feels like just yesterday they were killing it on Kickstarter and fumbling their way to securing multiple investments, much to the ire of their backers. You could see the writing on the wall at that point, when they announ...

 
 
That Dragon, Cancer photo

That Dragon, Cancer is releasing January 2016

Around two years ago at the Develop conference in Brighton, I played a short demo for an indie game called That Dragon, Cancer. Sat by myself with a set of headphones on, I slowly explored the hospital room of a father and his young son. Hi...

Coleco announces new cartridge-based console

Are you old enough to remember the ColecoVision console from the '80s? Do you yearn for the days of old when games came on cartridges and everything had a nice physical manual? Do you often buy into new consoles announced with no hardware d...

Nintendo NX might be running on Android

A few years ago, a device descended from the heavens and changed the way we play games forever. Since it launched, no one has ever been able to play games on any other device for it just felt unclean. It will forever be remembered...

Asshole cat simulator Catlateral Damage out next week

I went to bed at like 7PM last night without cleaning up after dinner because I am always tired. This morning, while trying to work, I had to clean up because my cat (he's so cute, yes he is, yes he is) kept jumping on the living room coff...

 
 
OUYA for sale photo

OUYA now available for purchase (the company that is)

OUYA, the microconsole that was a $15 million hit on Kickstarter, is in financial trouble. According to a confidential email obtained by Fortune, OUYA is deep enough in debt that it's going to be put up for sale. This coming shortly after A...

For better or worse, sometimes you just have a hankerin’ to steal a goat. Those of us at PAX East with said craving headed over to Toto Temple Deluxe, which delivered goat-stealing gameplay in a fast-paced keep-away brawler fashion. &...

Neverending Nightmares photo

Review: Neverending Nightmares

Mental illness is terrifying. Depression is a soul vampire that will suck the light right out of you. Obsessive compulsive disorder does not make you a supernaturally great detective like it does in the movies. It makes you paranoid and agi...

 
 
Amazing Frog? photo

The Ouya's best game is finally coming to Steam

Before Goat Simulator, there was Amazing Frog?, a physics-driven make-your-own-fun sandbox game that's so damn funny I'm willing to put up with the irksome question mark in the name. It's a game most of us have not actually played, though,...

 
 
Poncho photo

Poncho is a cute robot in a lovely open-world platformer

It always hurts my heart a little bit to see what looks like a great game failing to gain traction on Kickstarter. Certainly, the crowdfunding community is more cautious these days than it used to be, and with good reason in a lot of cases...

 
 
 
Ouya heads to China photo

Ouya sets sights on China in hopes of success

The Ouya hasn't been embraced in the West, so now the company behind the Android microconsole finds itself turning to China in search of an audience, Reuters reports. Chinese electronics giant Xiaomi is brokering a partnership with Ouy...

 
 
Neon Caves photo

Neon Caves is out today on Ouya

I don't do very many Ouya stories (because I don't get the opportunity, really), but I wanted to jump on the announcement for Neon Caves' release because I like the studio involved. Developer Force of Habit, who has crafted a rather amazin...

 
 
 
Shadowrun Online photo

Shadowrun Online adds character customization, random co-op

An update for Shadowrun Online has recently arrived and it's filled to the brim with new features, improvements, and fixes. This is the one I've been waiting for, people! We can finally create our own characters and enter random co-op mis...

The Deer God funded, now coming to Wii U and Xbox One too

Did you get your pledge in for The Deer God? I didn't, because these days I try to severely limit the number of projects I back on Kickstarter, but damn did it look neat -- visually and conceptually. Crescent Moon Games ended up nearly dou...

Ouya rolls out all-access pass for $59.99

Now this is an interesting tactic. Ouya is offering a 12-month all-access pass for $59.99 in a limited quantity. The pass covers one-time purchases under $30 "such as full game unlocks and level-pack add-ons," but not in-game boosts that ca...

Team17 to publish post-apocalyptic strategy-sim Sheltered

In years past, Team17 has mostly been known as the studio behind Worms, but lately the studio has been expanding that image by publishing other UK-based, independently-developed games. Last month we saw the publisher pick up Self Made Mira...

 
 
Reading Rainbow OUYA photo

Limited Edition Reading Rainbow OUYA up for grabs now

Late last month we talked a bit about the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter, which is in its last few days now. When it passed $4 million, producer of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (among other, less important things) Seth MacFarlane pledged to mat...

 
 
Catalateral Damage photo

Back Catlateral Damage on Kickstarter, get some indie games

When we first saw Catlateral Damage earlier this year, I thought it was a fun little game, a kind of spiritual successor to the Katamari series only instead of cleaning up, you're just a cat wrecking stuff. Because that's the kind of thing...
