Not-so-serious publishers Devolver Digital have announced today in a not-so-serious post that they've acquired Serious Sam developers Croteam. Seriously. Well, the tone of the announcement isn't serious but it has seriously happened. It's a business love story for the books.

Rune 2 lawsuit now going after Bethesda and ZeniMax too

Bethesda and ZeniMax intentionally sabotaged Rune 2 by secretly snapping up its developers days before launch, the game's publishers have claimed in a lawsuit. The Viking fantasy action-RPG launched in November 2019 then, the very next day, developers Human Head announced they were shutting down but their employees had been hired for a new Bethesda studio. This was quite a surprise, even to the publishers…

Slashin’ ‘n dashin’ roguelite ScourgeBringer left early access today

The last month or so has been a delightful time for roguelite fans (hello). We recently had the excellent Noita and Hades leave early access, and now the fast-paced action platformer ScourgeBringer has joined them. Today saw the dashing and blasting and slashing roguelite reach its 1.0 release. As with most games escaping their early access shackles, ScourgeBringer got a big update today, too, adding…

Fortnite’s Halloween update shrank its scary install size by 60GB

Back when Fortnite first came out in 2018, it had the very polite install size of around 20GB. Having not played it for ages, I had no idea that it'd managed to beef all the way up to 90GB. Thankfully, that's not the case any longer, though, because today's update chopped it all down by 60GB. On top of that, it added a load of…

Sightless Sea Of Thieves streamer plays by following sounds from his crewmates

"Sightless Kombat" is an accessibility consultant and streamer who, as you might guess by the name, is without sight. Last night, he joined the Rare crew on their weekly stream to shoot some skeletons, chat about accessibility and show how he plays the game…

Frost Giant Studios are mostly former StarCraft II developers, and say they are "on a mission to bring real-time strategy games to a broad audience." They haven't specifically announced a game yet, but I'm…

Fallout 76 is free to play this week

It feels weird to write something like, 'Celebrate the Fallout bombs dropping this week!' Because it's a bit dark and gloomy, and 'celebrate' certainly feels like the wrong word. But hey, that's exactly what Bethesda are doing. October 23rd is the day in Fallout lore where the world went bang and those lucky (or unlucky) enough to have a place in a vault disappeared underground.…

Manifold Garden’s architectural puzzles are now on Steam and Itch

Are you lost, readers? I've only wandered briefly through Manifold Garden's recursive puzzle labyrinths, but I'm afraid to say I am too. Oh, well, at least it's a gorgeous place to find yourself stuck in. If you're better at thinking your way out of a tight spot, you might even find yourself breezing through William Chyr's beautiful void, with Manifold Garden finding a new home…

Supergiant artist goes behind-the-scenes on building a god in Hades

Hades is a bloody gorgeous game. There's no arguing that. But did you know that the enigmatic Nyx started life as one of the Fury sisters? Crafting a god is a strange process for mortal hands - but such is the job of the artists at Supergiant games, one of whom has this week gone in-depth on how the studio models, rigs, textures and animates…

Amnesia: Rebirth’s launch was a bit cursed oOooOoo

In my expert opinion, the best thing a horror game about amnesia and half-glimpsed horrors can do upon launching is disappear. Was it ever there? Am I crazy in the coconut? So it's thematically splendid (if practically inconvenient) that today's Amnesia: Rebirth launch went spooky on Steam. At first some owners found it didn't have an executable so they couldn't play, which is a solid…

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s post-launch expansions set sail for Ireland, Paris

In letting us pillage jolly old England, Assassin's Creed: Valhalla has already promised a tempting power fantasy. But Ubisoft's upcoming historical stab 'em up isn't stopping with just one country. Revealed in a new trailer outlining Valhalla's post-launch plans, it looks like Eivor will be setting sail for the Emerald Isle before taking an axe to Ubisoft's own Parisian front door in two major expansions,…
