Beyond a Steel Sky delayed until early 2020

Revolution Software has announced that its sequel to classic DOS adventure game Beneath a Steel Sky will not be ready for launch in 2019 as initially planned, as will now emerge from the smoggy wastelands early in 2020."From the very outset...

Review: Guildlings

Guildlings is a game that just launched on Apple Arcade, and it’s got a whole lot going for it. Through a mixture of RPG, point-and-click, and visual novel mechanics, it tells the story of a young girl who gets her first phone. Only, ...

Review: Manifold Garden

Manifold Garden is what you'd get if you slipped M.C. Escher's Relativity into an art-to-video-game converter. Shifting gravity to walk up walls, leaping off the edge of the world only to fall from the sky and land right back where you star...

Apple Arcade has five more games to check out today

They did it. They got my first real, honest-to-goodness five bucks for Apple Arcade. I was originally thinking I'd only stick around for that initial free trial period, but I ended up keeping my subscription going past the first month &ndas...

Manifold Garden is finally done and it's out this week

Nearly seven years later, it's time to lose ourselves in the "Escher-esque" world of Manifold Garden. Designer William Chyr is releasing his recursive puzzle-adventure game on the Epic Games Store and Apple Arcade on October 18, 2019. To t...

Review: Various Daylife

One of the beautiful things about subscription services is they can provide eclectic creators a way to make their art without worrying about how well it will sell. For many of these products, they probably wouldn't stand a chance ...

Review: Neo Cab

Neo Cab is a game all about facing my greatest fear: being trapped and having to talk to someone in a confined area. Every time I step into a cab, I’m filled with dread as I pray that I got one of the rare untalkative drivers. Fortuna...

Review: Stela

Charles Caleb Colton once said, "Imitation is the sincerest [form] of flattery." Clearly, Mr. Colton never owned iPhone. Since the launch of the App Store, it has become a cesspool of hastily thrown together titles that mimic, rip-off, or s...

Review: Inmost

Apple Arcade made a big splash day one, and I couldn't be happier. Tasked with killing a microtransaction/gacha-hungry monster it helped create, Apple is trying out the subscription model, and the best part is that every game is a premium r...

Review: Sayonara Wild Hearts

Adequately covering the launch of Apple Arcade is a herculean task for even the biggest of websites. There are just so many games, all released at once, during one of the busiest Septembers in recent memory. With this new streaming service,...

Review: Hot Lava

Klei Entertainment is low key one of my favorite developers in the industry today. Even if they don't hit all their marks they aren't afraid to try anything new, and have tackled myriad genres like stealth platforming, survival, strategy, p...

Review: Agent Intercept

Spy/thief/espionage fiction is a sweet spot for me. I could watch Ocean's movies ad nauseam, and even though Eon has no clue what to do with James Bond in the modern era, you better believe I'm there in theaters waiting to see if they ...

Review: Assemble With Care

One of the great things about the mobile platform is it's ripe with opportunities for developers who want to create small, narrative-driven or experimental games. One of the worst things about the mobile ecosystem is it's largely unsupporti...

Review: Sneaky Sasquatch

So far the Apple Arcade initiative has been an eclectic mix of indies, but with so many on offer it's very easy to miss those rare gems. Sneaky Sasquatch is one of those games you might scroll through on the way to a Shantae or an Exit...

Review: Spidersaurs

WayForward sure as hell knows how to sell a game. With a cartoon intro that looks straight out of the '80s/early '90s as-is, downloading Spidersaurs on the Apple Arcade is an easy ask. It doesn't fully execute that lovely premise, but ...

Review: Grindstone

When a puzzle game's central mechanic is seared in your mind to the extent that it vividly flashes before you every time you close your eyes, you know you've overdone it. That's precisely where I'm at right now with Capybara's new puzzler G...

Review: Exit the Gungeon

It's hard to believe, but the relatively recent Enter the Gungeon is now officially a franchise. I mean it pretty much cemented itself as one once the arcade cabinet was unveiled at E3 this year, but now it's officially official with a clev...

Review: Shinsekai: Into the Depths

When Apple Arcade was first announced, I never expected to one day use the subscription service to play a deep-sea metroidvania game from Capcom. What a wild thought. Even now, it feels like a dream. Looking through the launch lineup, Apple...
