The Itch.io summer sale includes Thumper and The Signal From Tölva for cheaps

Games. You want them, Itch.io sells them, and to facilitate that process it's put 606 of the things on sale. I like that they've taken the polar opposite approach to Steam's shenanigans for their own summer sale, and surrounded the discounts with absolutely zero guff. I know some people buy into the badges and whatnot, but after years of Valve's bombarding me with cutesy treehouse…

Rhythm Violence: Thumper Coming To PC In 2016

The "rhythm violence" of the booming, screeching, and gorgeous Thumper [official site] left John and folks around him shaken and unsettled when he saw a demo at GDC. Elsewhere in the room, me and my chums muttered crudities along the lines of "sugar yes!" and "flippin' A!" We're pretty different people, me and John, but we broadly agree that Thumper looks quite something. We've been…

Rhythmic Violence: THUMPER

Rhythm action games are often beautifully abstract, and occasionally weird and cute, but they're rarely terrifying. THUMPER [official site] is rhythmic intimidation. Rhythmic violence, according to the latest trailer, which you can see below. Created by two rhythm game veterans, it's a game about a space beetle punching audio while zillapedes haunt the void and an "insane giant head from the future" eats, coughs and…
