Pinball adventure Yoku's Island Express is shaping up nicely

I'm writing this one as much for me as for you. Yoku's Island Express is a platforming pinball adventure that has slipped on and off my radar a few times now. It's still on track for a Q2 2018 launch on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, a...

Review: Aven Colony

My people are starving. You'd think, when settling a polar ice cap, Mission HQ would be sure to send you with more food. But nooo, “there is some arable land, you can farm for yourself. Oh, we seem to have dropped you way too far from...

Yooka-Laylee has...multiplayer?

Wait, Yooka-Laylee has multiplayer? Rextro the raptor has an arcade for you and three of your friends to visit and play together both co-operatively and competitively. If you don't have any friends that's OK, Rextro will be your friend as ...

Oh good, Yooka-Laylee will have a physical edition

I'm doing my best to keep Yooka-Laylee out of my mind. The less I think about it, the easier it'll be to remain patient. That's the idea. Clearly, though, I am struggling to stick to that plan if I'm writing about the dang game. Today's sho...

Meet Yooka-Laylee's newest character, Kartos

I'm not sure how many more ex-Rare staffers can pile onto the Yooka-Laylee team, but there's room for at least a couple more. Playtonic went on a little hiring spree for its first birthday, adding environmental artist Damien Sparkes (Banjo-...

New Yooka-Laylee character channels old school graphics

Ever since the announcement that Team17 would be publishing the Kickstarter-funded Banjo-Kazooie-like Yooka-Laylee, news has been pretty quiet on it. There have been a couple of backer updates, including one showing a cute skeleton girl, bu...

Worms World Party review photo

Review: Worms World Party Remastered

Worms World Party has always been a divisive entry in the long-running series. Released as a followup to the almost universally lauded Worms Armageddon, some viewed it as a welcome refinement to a great game while others saw it as a too-sam...

Bunker dwelling in Sheltered

It must suck to be the developers of Sheltered at E3. Sheltered is a game where you create and manage a shelter underground from a side on 2D perspective, building new rooms and managing the people living in your shelter. Considering two da...

Hands-on with Beyond Eyes

A few months ago, our very own Darren Nakamura went hands on with a game called Beyond Eyes, where you play as a young blind girl, exploring the world in the hopes of finding her lost cat. I was lucky enough today to be able to sit down wit...

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...

Beyond Eyes abstracts the world as perceived by a blind girl

I have been following Beyond Eyes since I first heard about it a year and a half ago. Videogames can be powerful tools for relating experiences that may otherwise be difficult to comprehend. Blindness both fascinates and terrifies me; I kno...

Team17 to publish post-apocalyptic strategy-sim Sheltered

In years past, Team17 has mostly been known as the studio behind Worms, but lately the studio has been expanding that image by publishing other UK-based, independently-developed games. Last month we saw the publisher pick up Self Made Mira...

Penarium wants you to try to survive a sadistic circus act

Though arcade-style action games seemed to disappear with arcades themselves (go figure), they have been making a bit of a comeback recently. Games like Super Crate Box or the upcoming Woah Dave! remind us that sometimes it is okay to just...
