Contest: Win a Steam copy of Killer Chambers

Escape this bizarrely haunted mansion in today's contest for Killer Chambers! Ugh, I hate it when I get trapped in mansions that require me to solve puzzles and dodge obstacles in order to pass from room to room. It's just poor manners on t...

Epic is giving out The Witness for free on PC

I was enthralled by The Witness when it first came out, and three years later, I feel like I'm in a place where I can go through the game again almost as if it were new. I've forgotten whole swaths of the island. I don't remember most of th...

Arika's Tetris 99 just got a very small update on the surface: but for hardcore players, it's quite significant. In short the new patch (version 1.2.0) just altered the sensitivity settings, which now allow for both light and hard drop...

Review: Golf Peaks

Golf is a very deceptive sport. While many people will bemoan how "boring" it is, they're only looking at it from the viewpoint of a spectator. Actually picking up a club and swinging at a ball will show you just how much technique goes i...

Contest: Win a Switch copy of Golf Peaks

Puzzle me this with today's contest for Golf Peaks for Switch. Golf itself is stupid, but I've always enjoyed golf video games. Weird, right? It's like, I can drink as much at home playing virtual golf as I would on a real golf course, for ...

This Captain Toad concept art is (chef kissy fingers emoji)

Thanks to the Switch and (3DS) Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker was given a new lease on life. The 2014 Wii U puzzler made some waves several years ago, but a modern update and some paid DLC is shooting it to the forefront in a way the origin...

Contest: Win Minesweeper Genius for Switch, PS4, or Xbox One

Feel like a friggin' genius with today's contest: Win a Switch, PS4, or Xbox One copy of Minesweeper Genius. I love kooky, off-the-wall kinda stuff. Take Minesweeper Genius for instance -- the whole premise is that aliens have cloned Aristo...

Review: ChromaGun (VR)

I knew someone had used the "chroma chameleon" tagline as soon as I typed it. But it was only in that split-second directly after letting the ink hit the digital page did I think to Google it: sure enough, our own Josh Tolent...

Contest: Win a Steam copy of Catherine Classic

Get weird with this contest for Catherine Classic for Steam! I've never played Catherine, mostly because I felt shame enough even having the box on my shelf. I thought surely I'd get weird looks from anyone passing if they saw me playing it...

Destructoid's award for Best Mobile Game of 2018 goes to...

Setting out by yourself to create your own game is one of the riskiest excursions a creative type can take. That takes guts. It can take years for one person to see their vision through to fruition, and in that time there are challenges tha...
