Viking Space Program Is Exploding With Awesome

Long ago, before the seduction of fast food and motorized vehicles, there resided vikings in the land of Kerbin. It was not an easy time. These fearsome Kerbals lived and died with their colossal ships, which spat flame like the behinds of dragons. But like their eventual descendants, they persisted and grew from strength to strength. Their endless quest for naval perfection was known as…

Badland Coming To PC

Gorgeously atmospheric sidescrolling float-em-up Badland [official site] began life as a tadpole on iOS. It has made a fair few ripples since it appeared in the App Store, picking up a bevy of awards. And now, after much splashing about on mobile devices, the game is making a spring migration for the bigger waters of the PC, the - pfft. Who cares about consoles? Let’s…

Spend One Vicarious Hour With American Truck Simulator

American Truck Simulator [official site-ish] looks hard. Parallel parking is already the devil, but the idea of slotting ten tons of flammable material into the back of gas station just takes things to extremes. SCS Software recently unleashed an hour's worth of alpha gameplay footage from the game and it's precisely what you might have expected: careful turns; meticulous inspections of both wing mirrors; the…

Valiance Online Opens Pre-Alpha Spandex People Testing

Superheroes never die. They just switch MMOs. City of Heroes might have been reduced to a bittersweet memory, but you might find some of that old glory in Valiance Online's open pre-alpha test phase, which happily does not require you to sign NDAs in your blood. This upcoming MMORPG is set at the tail end of the 21st century, where spandex-clad superpeople roam free-range through…

Mount & Blade Viking DLC Isn’t Quite In Ship Shape

Roughly a week ago, the lads behind the Brytenwalda mod released the Viking Conquest DLC for Mount & Blade Warband. Replete with hundreds of cities to burn down and hundreds more people to bother, Viking Conquest promised a Dark Age Britain that is supposed to contain authentic scenes, scheming companions, bickering religious people, and... stuff.

Cosmic Star Heroine Alpha Already Shows Star Quality

Gunmancy. Froggoths. Pop-culture cheekiness. Sentient snot. Yes, my friends, Cosmic Star Heroine is already looking like a star. If you're wondering what I'm blathering about, Zeboyd Games recently released half an hour's worth of gameplay footage, all from the alpha version of the upcoming turn-based RPG, which draws inspiration from the likes of Chrono Trigger.

Clever Girl, The Hunter: Primal Is Out For You

Preservation efforts? A park to contain all the beauties of the prehistoric world? Nah. We'll just shoot 'em all. Freshly arrived in the Early Access folder, The Hunter: Primal errs on the meaner side of the equation, the side that involves gore and goop and other things that could possibly drip from dinosaur-y insides. Here, you play as a hunter, a bipedal predator who must…

Zombie Vikings Looks Like Brawly, Grotty, Stabby Fun

I think I could be a little bit in love with Zombie Vikings, which chucks bearded Nordic glory out of the window in favor of something wonderfully, messily ... different. Described as a "four-player co-op stab-you-in-a-gut-a-thon," it's the story of how Loki steals Odin's last remaining eye and how the All-Father, embarrassed and determined to be not-blind again, summons four of the "most fearsome Zombie…

Feature: Expire State Of Mind

Dead State review

Dead State has been shambling toward release for years and we've been tracking its progress since Brian Mitsoda announced the project in 2010. It looked like it might be the game that revitalised the zombie genre long before the rotters had reached saturation point. It was also one of the few old-fashioned isometric RPGs in development before Kickstarter helped the likes of Wasteland 2 and…

See How Inhuman You Can Be In Human Element

No such thing as too many zombie games, right? Robotoki's upcoming Human Element is a fast-paced shooter-slash-base-management chimera that takes place 35 years after the end of an undead uprising. Humanity has broken into gun-loving factions, and is now clamoring over what few resource-rich outposts remain.

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams Gets Competitive Mode

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams was a Kickstarter platform game that John liked but didn't love: the former because of the satisfaction of learning each Sister's special skills, the latter because of issues like repetitiveness. If you're of the same mindset and was gunning for an opportunity to do more with the game, developers Black Forest has just the thing for you: a competitive multiplayer mode.

Enter The Gungeon: A Dungeon Crawler What Has Guns

Enter the Gungeon is developer Dodge Roll's love letter to the "many inventive and memorable guns of video games." It's further described as a radial shooter stuffed into a "dungeon-crawler lootfest," which is reason enough to open your mouth and prep a yawn. But there's enough fun character design and potential Vlambeer-y feels on display in the trailer that I'd ask you to stifle it…

Some Odd Gentlemen Are On A King’s Quest

Trailers don't always turn me into a shrieking teenybopper, but I'm not ashamed to say I made high-pitched noises — think long, loud "EEEE"s of raw and immeasurable glee - at the King's Quest announcement trailer. A joint production between The Odd Gentleman and the newly resurrected Sierra Games, the upcoming reboot is all about a doddering King Graham going, "In my time - "…

Tacoma Is The New Game From The Makers Of Gone Home

Another first-person walking simulator in which you play a person in a coma? Oh n-- Wait. In Tacoma - and from The Fullbright Company, those who made Gone Home. Tacoma reveal trailer suggests a similar style, but this time you will be playing as a female astronaut tasked with exploring the eponymous lunar transfer station.

Happy Kitty, Cat Petting Simulator 2014, Purr Purr Purr

I miss having cats. Four years ago, I left home and became a professional itinerant, leaving my felines in the care of rich strangers. Today, I am bereft of cats and so, you shouldn't take me as an unbiased source when I say, "Oh, god. Cat Petting Simulator 2014 is the best thing I've seen in a long time."

As Seen On Craigslist: Cottage Of Doom

Doom is awesome! Maybe not the state of being doomed. Or even that movie where The Rock forced his cooking down alien olfactory senses. But domiciles of doom? Better than cottage cheese. Master of leafy strategy games Alex May recently released a remake of Cottage of Doom, his winning entry in 2007's TIGsource B-Games competition. The idea behind this piece of lo-fi goodness is a…

Eigengrau Menagerie: Not A Collection of Sneezing Sounds

Lifeforms? Lifeforms? The Eigengrau Menagerie is a classy place for deep cogitations and Thoughtforms, sir. Currently embroiled in the popularity contest that is Steam Greenlight, The Eigengrau Menagerie is a sumptuous little puzzle-adventure game, filled with phantasmagorical art and a literary soul.

How Stellar! Search For Alien Life In SETI-JAM Games

Space. The final frontier. To boldly go where no man has gone before. Plenty of people have moaned over how we're born too early to travel the cosmos, and too late to be astonished by the fact the world isn't flat. I say, bugger 'em with a side of millennium shrimp. We might not be capable of interstellar staycations yet, but we do have game…

Glowy Death Abounds In Daedalus – No Escape

Lasers, glistening biceps, and corrugated labyrinths, oh my! Is there any way to make space marine-driven arena shooters better? If you were Daedalus - No Escape, you'd say something like, "Of course! By turning it into a top-down affair, naturally." Out now on Steam, Daedalus looks like a slick, violent conflagration where only the best can reign from the top of the leader boards. No…

Mwa-ha-ha-ha. Er. Their upcoming browser-based game Ultimate Party promises to bring you exactly that, and then some. It won't just be your standard isometric ARPG, oh no.
