Kingsway is a neat-looking RPG in an operating system

Andrew Morrish's Kingsway looks like a good time. It's a fantasy role-playing game set within a familiar but probably-legally-distinct-enough faux operating system, and this trailer nails that vibe. Things like your health and mana status,...

Review: Glittermitten Grove

You may think you don't want a game about building huts in trees to house fairies while they collect sunlight and shoot off fireworks. You may be wrong. Developing a functioning fairy society might be exactly what you want.

Been a while since we've seen Rain World's good ol' slugcat

Rain World met its Kickstarter funding goal almost three years ago, and it has been largely out of the spotlight since then. Heck, the last time we wrote anything about the oppressive, waterlogged world was like a year and a half ago. But i...

Volgarr the Viking is headed to PS4 and Vita with Cross-Buy

Volgarr the Viking is a prime example of how old-school design never stopped being fun. There are a bunch of cheaply-placed pitfalls and the difficulty curve is a lot more front-loaded than I'd like, but besting the game's obstacles is an i...

Review: Small Radios Big Televisions

I can't help but think that living in a world where entertainment is readily available without the tether of actual physical media has made analog devices retroactively desirable once again. There's something powerful about the physicality ...

How will the AT&T / Warner merger change games?

In case you hadn't heard, AT&T announced Saturday that it intends to purchase Time Warner, Inc. for $85.4 billion. The deal is far from final, and if approved, wouldn't take place until sometime in 2017. It's an absolutely enormous merg...

Battle Chef Brigade: two tastes tasting great together

Sometimes we joke about genre blending, as if some games are designed by shuffling a deck of cards with mechanics written on them and then choosing two at random. At first glance, Battle Chef Brigade looks like it could have been a result o...

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...

Ghost Song blew away my expectations, made me die a lot

I have to be honest, I've been a skeptic of Ghost Song since it was announced and then crowdfunded. People around the internet have reacted as if it weas God's gift to gamers and the second coming of Samus, and I just thought it l...
