Geralt may appear in Soul Calibur VI but here are the characters we really want

This is Brendan, broadcasting live from rumour world, where everything is made of a nebulous candy floss-like substance. The locals call it “hope.” Amid this sticky cloud, a figure has formed. It’s Geralt of Rivia, hero of popular Gwent spin-off, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The monster-hunting swordsman will “make an appearance” in another game later this year, according to CD Projekt Red community lead…

Getting Over It, Night In The Woods, Baba Is You & Into The Breach lead IGF 2018 finalists

It's that time again already - 2018's Independent Games Festival hands out its best-in-indie gongs on March 21 (as part of the Game Developers Conference), and these are the games in line for a prize. And, more importantly, a big shot at success thanks to the profile, although it should be noted that a fair few of these have done rather well for themselves already.…

Sad millennial simulator Night In The Woods gets new (and old) content

Depressed animal economic collapse adventure Night In The Woods exists in a strange place in my consciousness. While I absolutely love so much about it, from the characters to the art to the music and beyond, it's not particularly my sort of game - I'm more of a hands-on, solve problems kinda guy. I've also seen almost everything the game has to offer, thanks to…

Night In The Woods getting director’s cut in December

The wonderful Night In The Woods will receive "a whole bunch of new content" later this year with its 'Weird Autumn Edition' update, developers Infinite Fall have announced. Promising "new weird", "new crimes", and "old tales", they say to "think of it as the Night In The Woods director's cut." I've just about come to terms with the initial coming-of-age crisis so sure, I should…

Night in the Woods delayedis out now!?!?!?

In a shocking turn of events, the colourful homecoming adventure Night in the Woods [official site] did not get delayed this week, causing it to become available on your PC mere hours ago. This is bad news for me. We've had our ‘Night in the Woods has been delayed again’ article ready to go for weeks, based on all the other times it’s been postponed,…

Night In The Woods gets definites-for-sure release date

I know you’re still upset that indie adventure Night In The Woods [official site] was delayed that one time. And then that other one time. And then that third one time. But the colourful homecoming tale is definitely, DEFINITELY coming out on February 21, the developers say. They made a tweet about it with a poster that has the date on it and everything.

Later, dude: Night in the Woods delayed into February

So sure, Night in the Woods [official site] is delayed once more but, y'know, stuff happens. At least this latest delay is only a few weeks. Besides, given the state everything will be in after New Year, I probably wouldn't have time for it on its original date of January 10th. The cute explore-o-adventure about a college dropout cat returning to her home town, where…

Night in the Woods trailer tooled up for January launch

The launch of Night in the Woods [official site] on may be an entire year away, on January 10th in 2017, but- oh god, that's really soon. Everything that seemed a year away is now almost tomorrow. I can't handle a feline dropout's problems now - I've barely started on this dropout's. But life, as I'm told it often will, keeps on rolling. So fine,…

Lost Constellation Ain’t Afraid Of Snow Ghost

If you're looking for something in the realms of macabre fairytales to accompany the frozen January darkness, take a look at Lost Constellation, from the makers of Night In The Woods. It's a short puzzle-based story set in the same world as NITW but is billed as a supplement rather than a demo. What you'll find is a ghost story told by cats and enacted…

You Can Never Go Home: Night In The Woods

I've already spotted two examples of a new golden age of 2d animation during E3, which is precisely the sort of thing I didn't expect to write before E3 actually began. Silly not to expect all kinds of sights really, particularly considering the number of imaginative indies setting out their stalls on the consoles in the digital download age. Night in the Woods, which was…

Canabalt Developer Forms Game Studio, Makes All Games

Adam Saltsman is probably known to you as the creator of Canabalt, the infinite runner with the fabulous glass-smashing sound. He and fellow developer Rebekah Saltsman are now setting up a studio, Finji, to bring together their many game projects under a single name. That includes Overland, a collaboration with Shay Pierce; Portico, a turn-based sorta-tower-defence-ish game previously called Grave; Capsule, a really neat, extremely…

That in mind, what's one more delightfully promising project to throw a worrisome amount of cash at? Because seriously, Night in the Woods has all the makings of quirky, wildly inventive greatness - with a hint of sincere…
