Smoke And Lasers: Fixation

By Adam Smith on April 2nd, 2012.

She has extraordinary lung capacity

The Company of Myself combined clever puzzles, occasionally frustrating platforming and a sombre mood to pleasing effect. The prequel, Fixation, ditches the time clones of the original but keeps the melancholy, with similarly atmospheric music, and conversations bleak in their mundanity. Progress is made by indulging in the odd cigarette or fifty. In fact, judging by the amount of smoke pumped out of her face, the lady at the centre of the story might as well use her lungs as an ashtray.

Fisher Diver is a game about shooting writhing wireframe abominations in the spine with a harpoon, waiting for them to bleed out and then collecting their lifeless fish-flesh to sell for a few dollars. Fisher Diver has an upgrade system. Fisher Diver encourages you to buy licenses so that you can dive ever deeper and confront increasingly dangerous creatures that thrash idiotically and blasphemously in the deepest trenches.

Holidaying, Spewing

By RPS on May 4th, 2009.


It’s a national holiday here in the UK, so the Hivemind is in the “off” position. We’ll be switched back on tomorrow. In the meantime we suggest you go and play Spewer, the new platformer by Edmund McMillen and Eli Piilonen. In it you control a tiny creature that uses vomit as propellant. We think you’ll like it.
