Game Key Reseller G2A Offers Royalties To Developers

Last week G2A, a sort of eBay but for video games keys, and tinyBuild, the publishers of Speedrunners and others, had a bit of a tussle after tinyBuild accused G2A of facilitating the sale of $450,000 worth of fraudulent game keys. Both sides exchanged demands, and today G2A seems to have pulled back on their stance and is now rolling out a program that will,…

SpeedRunners [official site] is DoubleDutch's sidescrolling, wall-jumping, superhero-sporting, grappling hook-tossing, competitive platformer that you may have spotted living on Early Access over the last three years. In that time, it's accrued over one million downloads, received hundreds of updates and has gained official recognition from the eSports League - all of which makes it a great example of how the Early Access process should be…

SpeedRunners Is A Great Example Of Early Access Development Benefitting A Game And Its Players

Feature: Indie Devs Do Triple-A, Pt 1

Introducing JetGetters, A Fusion Of Just Cause 2 And BF3

"We are about to reveal a new game!" No Time To Explain dev/burgeoning indie publisher Alex Nichiporchik told me over Skype. Almost reflexively, I braced myself for an excited slurry spew about some crazy new platformer or a zany comedy adventure or an emotional tale that would rock me to my very core. "It's basically a fusion of Just Cause 2 and Battlefield 3," he…

SpeedRunners Embracing Piracy, Releasing Free Version

Despite what some triple-A publishers might think, piracy isn't a simple black-and-white subject. Pirates aren't necessarily shifty-eyed thieves, and a pirated copy doesn't necessarily equate to a lost sale. You can't beat it, either, so you might as well come aboard and embrace that other audience that's playing your game. Increasingly, that's the mentality many indies have adopted, and SpeedRunners developer tinyBuild is following suit. All…

Gotta Go Fast: SpeedRunners

Ah, that greatest of all inventions, the grappling hook. Where would the world be without it? Likely a passing oddity of scorched earth and radioactive waste for some alien civilization. DoubleDutch Games have seen fit to immortalise this world-changing piece of undeniably brilliant technology in SpeedRunners. It's a 2D platforming racer which Adam's thrown words about before. Now that it's up on Steam Early Access,…
