Sokpop Collective are popping out a new game every 2 weeks

'Suspicious Developments' remains my favourite name for a games studio*, but 'Sokpop' might be my favourite name for a video games collective. That's because a) it captures some of the playfulness that they bring to their work, and b) it's fun to say. Sokpop!

The Sacrificial Limb: LISA – The Painful RPG

The tiny pixel man at the top of LISA's Kickstarter page isn't like all the others. Both of his arms have been lopped off and he's threatening to bite his enemies. Just above that image you'll find the game's elevator pitch - it's a "game about survival, sacrifice, and perverts". Lone developer Austin Jorgensen wants to make an RPG that doesn't skimp on unpleasant content…
