Northgard creators swap vikings for zombies with top-down Darksburg

The axe-weilding pillagers of Northgard ought to be used to the seasons changing by now, considering it's the crux of the wolf-killing strategy game. But a particularly harsh winter now befalls them, because all their programmer daddies and mummies are off to work on another game. Darksburg is a top-down action game for up to four players in which you’ll be killing zombos instead of…

Have You Played… Evoland?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Aren't games brill?

Greenlight Lives: Anodyne, Receiver, More Make The Cut

Gabe Newell hasn't been particularly sweet on Steam Greenlight as of late, but the fully open Steam of tomorrow hasn't supplanted its "dictatorial" ways just yet. Instead, the mighty user-driven machine trundles on, streamlining the process where it can and rhythmically opening its jaw each month to crunch down whatever creative morsels we offer up.

Bit By Bit: Evoland Lets You Play Through Gaming History

Ah, how far we've come. Why, I remember when games were still controlled by way of fire, amber-crystallized mosquitoes, and - yeesh - wired peripherals during brief respites from servitude under our mighty, all-devouring Tyrannolords. Those were such simpler times. Now, though, we have all these crazy graphics and buttons. But how did we reach this point? That's what Evoland hopes to explore, generation-by-generation, in a single…
