The Bestest Best Games Of 2016 So Far

We usually do our enormous GAMES OF THE YEAR posting fest at the end of the year (as would seem logical) but because it seems silly to reserve praise for special occasions we're doing a Games Of The Half Year collection to tell you about everything we've loved playing so far. It can double as a summer holiday recommendations list too! We've listed ours in…

Arcade Dodgeball ‘Em Up Stikbold Released

Stikbold & The Beautiful: ’70s-Styled Dodgeball With Whales

Local multiplayer games seemed a frustrating shame until recently: I'd see a cool art style or neat idea and then discover that I could only play it if I had people around my house. I hate having people around my house, because that's where I store the evidence. But then Nidhogg, Gang Beasts and Towerfall happened and I had a gang of folks whose houses…

DevLog Watch: Super III, Prune, Book Of Dwarf, More

Last week I was in Switzerland on holiday, which meant I wrote a devlog watch but every update was about the mountains I hiked, the cowbells I heard, and the fresh baked bread I ate from my sunbaked patio. It was glorious. Can videogames compete? Probably not, but devlogs featuring alien platformers, nuclear strategy, puzzling trees and simulated dwarves give it a good try below.
