Carrion will be gruesome fun while it lasts

Sign me the heck up for video games that – like Carrion – let you wreak havoc on hapless humans as a monster. Whether it's an asymmetric multiplayer experience or a single-player power fantasy, I want in. The upcoming PC and con...

Nicalis teases an all-new 1001 Spikes game

1001 Spikes is one of my favorite games and I think you'd like it too if you gave it a try. At one point, I even joking-not-jokingly said it's better than Game of Thrones. Given how people turned on that show in its last season, I think a l...

Children of Morta needs to release, like, yesterday

I had the lovely opportunity to play Children of Morta back in 2016, and holy cow I didn't realize it was that long ago. I also put it on my "Indies of 2017 to Look Forward To" list. 2017, heh. But now it's slated to release this year!...
