Aspireational: Dustforce Devs Show FPS’s Procgen

I've been keenly awaiting Spire [official site], the roguelikelike first-person shooty platformer from Dustforce developers Hitbox Team, for three years and I'll happily keep waiting. Heck, I was sold when they referenced Quake trickjumping as an example of a slick movement system one can master. Hitbox still haven't sent word of when we might get to play it but I'm quite happy reading a new…

Dustforce Devs Sticking Up A Spire

I like it when developers take a bit of a leap. So Dustforce developer Hitbox Team's announcement that their next game won't be a 2D platformer made me tingle. Instead it'll be a first-person platform game called Spire. Spire is a good name. The real-world has buildings or towers. It's only a spire if it's in a fantasy world. And you know if you hear…

Humble Rumbles Anew: PWYW Torchlight, Vessel, SPAZ

Somehow bearing the numeral '6' after it, despite there having been at least 40,000 Humble Bundles by this point, the latest in the wildly successful series of pay-what-you-want indie grab-bags is go right now. Torchlight is the headliner, which is some funny timin' what with the sequel being pretty darn close now, and it has sterling support from Rochard, Space Pirates And Zombies (aka SPAZ),…

Broom For Improvement: Dustforce Level Editor

Enticingly attractive sweep 'em up Dustforce will receive a spit, a polish and a level editor tomorrow. It's all free of charge to existing owners, although that does mean you'll be spat on and rubbed with a dishcloth whether you like it or not. Their rules, not mine. I used to enjoy making levels for games but at some point it stopped being fun and…

Feature: This one cleans up

Dustforce review

It's pretty exciting to already know one of your games of 2012, midway through January. And it's always exciting to have a game that compels you to play the same levels over and over and over and over and over, despite the fact that it's over two hours since you needed to go to bed, and your hands hurt from thumping your desk, because you…

Millionaire Sweeper: Dustforce

Lots of people nodded at Dustforce , which the ever-wonderful IndieGames blog brought to public light. It's a platformer by Hitbox Team which is currently available in demo form, which includes two proper levels, a handful of custom levels and a (twitchy) level editor for you to play around with the custom ones with. Its controls take some getting used to, but this is startlingly…
