Then there are four more games for beating the average price, and a whole host of unlockable extras, which are detailed on the site. Go take a look.

If only all DRM were so beautiful.
Rob “War Twat” Fearon sends word that he’s making a new game: DRM, aka Death Ray Manta. It is, as you’ll discover, a game of some principles, as well as neon alien things exploding in a closed room. It’s looking rather beautiful. There’s a trailer below. The trailer is odd.
