Sad Space Party: Spacebase DF-9 Leaves Early Access

A game's launch is usually such a happy affair, all streamers and balloons and fruit punch and jelly and ice cream and cartwheeling clowns, but it's a little bittersweet for Spacebase DF-9. It's not the game Double Fine wanted it to be, nor the game advertised to Early Access purchasers. DF scaled plans down last month as announced they couldn't afford to keep making the…

Hack ‘n’ Slash Leaves Early Access, Brings Source Code

One of the best ideas in videogames today, Hack 'n' Slash, has broken out of Early Access and is running amok on Steam proper.

Since it's a videogame, that of course means a trailer is in order, lest people just stand in place, slack-jawed, like racers who've yet to hear a starting gun. In…

Double Fine’s Hack ‘N’ Slash Is Not Actually A Hack ‘N’ Slash

Oh Double Fine, you clever masters of language's darkest arts, I see - and indeed, understand the true ramifications - of what you did there. You said a thing that sounded like one thing, but it actually meant something entirely different. How cunning, how deceptive. Language, my friends, will never be the same. The Amnesia-Fortnight-born Hack 'N' Slash isn't a top-down action-packed hack-and-slash at all.…
