Celeste devs cancel procedural game Skytorn

Before Celeste was even a thought, the devs over at Matt Makes Games were working on Skytorn. A procedurally generated Metroidvania, the title was sidelined when Celeste began development. After a few posts reassuring that the action game w...

Giveaway: Empty your clip for a Steam key of Hypergun

Nothing -- NOTHING -- gets me going like neon, synths, and wanton violence. There's something about that combo that's so inherently visceral and primal that as soon as I see those lights and hear that robotic melody go, I start to lose my m...

Immortal Redneck is now available on Switch

The procedurally generated, roguelike FPS game Immortal Redneck is now available on Nintendo Switch for $19.99. Being one of only two FPS games currently out on the platform, I'm sure fans of the genre will be eager to eat this up. This is ...

Review: Songbringer

Space, science-fiction, and "expanding your mind" have always gone hand-in-hand. Whether it's something as worthy as Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, or as campy as Jane Fonda vehicle Barbarella, many creators like to partner the vast unkno...

Put some trust into sci-fi horror Distrust

It's hot in the UK, right now. Damn hot! So even though this is the third wintery game I've played already, right after Kona and The Wild Eight, I'm actually okay with it as long as the illusion keeps me cool. Luckily, Distrust also happens...

Review in Progress: DiRT 4

I was a bit of a strange teenager. While most of my peers were busy playing the latest in flashy games, I tended to look for obscure titles and different genres. I remember having a grand old time on the original Xbox playing things like Gu...

Review: Dungeon Souls

I have conquered the first level of Dungeon Souls. Its boulders and explosion-traps were ineffectual; its skeletons and bats (who are also skeletons!) have been reduced to glaringly bright coins and shards of bone. I have activated the last...

Explore spooky small towns in Silent Crossing

The phrase "ghost town" conjures up specific imagery. Abandoned homes and forgotten storefronts are the visible remnants of lives upended. Perhaps the ghost town's residents left because of some natural disaster or economic downturn. Maybe ...

Proc Skater 2016 is a clunky, chaotic take on skateboarding

Skateboarding is my escape from life's chaos. Whenever I feel stressed out, my skateboard is always there as a reliable means of much-needed relief. After countless hours skating, a few hundred major falls, and a handful of broken bones, my...

 
 
Renowned Explorers review photo

Review: Renowned Explorers: International Society

I'm glad I stuck Renowned Explorers out. For the first couple hours it was kind of a slog. Not exactly bad, but dense, unwieldy, and unexciting. I would finish an expedition and quit, not wanting to get back to it until days later, forcing ...

Don't Starve used to demonstrate placebo effect in games

The placebo effect is a well-known psychological concept wherein performance and results can be altered when a subject believes conditions are different even when they aren't. Classically, placebos are given in medicinal studies in order to...

Control an abandoned dog in the city in action-RPG Home Free

The first few moments of the Kickstarter trailer for Home Free bring up sad memories of the Futurama episode "Jurassic Bark," which I apparently cannot even read the Wikipedia entry for without getting misty-eyed. Dogs, man. Dogs are the be...

Spectra review photo

Review: Spectra

Spectra isn't a lot of things. It isn't complicated; its mechanics and entire premise can be learned in literally five seconds. It isn't structured; level design is eschewed for procedural generation. It isn't long; an hour of playing ...

 
 
We Happy Few Kickstarter photo

Compulsion's We Happy Few Kickstarter is live

We Happy Few grabbed us with its announcement trailer, but it wasn't until PAX East this year that I got to run through an early build. I had to literally run, because the crazed inhabitants of Wellington Wells kept chasing me with malicio...

Review: Schrodinger's Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark

"Schrödinger's Cat" refers to an old physics thought experiment that highlights the weirdness of the quantum theory. Though it generally applies to very small particles, a device could be designed that leverages the probability of a pa...
