Bleed 2 is the best Newgrounds game you never played

For a lot of youngsters (including myself!), Flash-based game sites like Newgrounds or Miniclip were a gateway to the world of video games. These sites were easily accessible from library/Boys & Girls Club desktops or your parents' work...

I annoyed robots until they went insane in The Fall Part 2

I'll be honest, I didn't expect to ever hear news of The Fall Part 2: Unbound, let alone play a demo on the PAX West show floor. Not just because the first installment ended on a perfect thematic conclusion, although I could understand...

PAX Indie Megabooth's layout, games finalized

It's hard to believe, but PAX West is only a few weeks away. One of the most interesting parts of PAX each year is the Indie Megabooth, an area of the show floor highlighting upcoming releases from smaller developers that might otherwise sl...

In VA-11 HALL-A, our troubles are all the same

As someone who doesn't really gel with alcohol on a physical level -- my head aches and then I need to sleep -- I've never quite experienced the full extent of the bartender/patron relationship. I "understand" it the same way I "understand"...

GDC 15 DLC #1: Chicken shawarma wrap

We're at the Game Developers Conference all week. GDC is pretty cool, but also a convention, which means gross convention center lunches. We want to have nice lunches all week. Not too nice. Downtown food is overpriced, even for San Franci...

The Flock is an intense, scary game of flashlight tag

With so many horror titles out, it's difficult to keep things interesting for players. While some focus on throwing countless monsters at you, others seek to make players feel nearly powerless against a limited number of foes. But what abou...

Titan Souls is my PAX Prime 2014 game of show

Confession time: I'm pretty out of the loop when it comes to the indie game scene. I love me some Nidhogg, Samurai Gunn, and Crawl, but it's not uncommon for me to have only heard about these games just before release or later. With that tr...

There Came an Echo does voice control right

Unlike with most fungi, I enjoyed Mushroom 11 growing on me

Mushroom 11 caught our eyes about a month ago, with its unique puzzle gameplay hook: the globular green collection of fungal cells is not directly controlled by the player. Instead, players simply click or tap to "erase" cells, while the mu...

Barkley 2 developers hope to release in late 2014

It's not often that you see fan games actually go anywhere beyond the initial gimmick. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the developers at Tales of Games spent the last year and a half hard at work creat...
