Sined, Sealed, Delivered: Waves Released

UDK-powered twin-stick shooter Waves is now available for purchase. I played it at the Eurogamer Expo and had a grand old time even though I clearly need plenty of practice to even scrape the bottom of any kind of leaderboards. There are a variety of game modes, one of which you can try in the demo, and the colourful chaos is somehow balanced while unpredictable. It's also quite spectacular to behold. Buy DRM-free direct from the developer for £5.94, or from Gamersgate with a current discount of 15% to £5.91. Will be on Steam by 6PM GMT but buying direct supplies a Steam code anyhow so that would seem the ideal option.

It's the kind of game that demands to be played again after each failure because you can feel skills being honed. Your skills. If I could just use the slo-mo more effectively I'd be fine, you'll think, or if I could maintain a massive combo while dodging through enemies who are splitting, multiplying and blocking you into corners. The corners of a sphere.

That's how bad I was - I ended up dead, trying to hide in the corner of a sphere.
