Wizard Of Legend adds a windy gust of air-magic content in free DLC

Wizard Of Legend was a good game with a great core to it. Channelling the best bits of Avatar: The Last Airbender, it sold the fantasy of being a kung-fu wizard through exacting, frantic combat. My only real gripe with it in my review here was that there just wasn't enough of it. Today, developers Contingent99 addressed that, adding a bit more of everything to…

Feature: Acceptable in the 80s

The Occupation review

The Occupation is a game easily described as ‘flawed but interesting’, which I do agree with, but then you wouldn’t appreciate it if a friend said the same thing about your homemade lasagne, would you? I didn’t technically finish playing The Occupation, because in the final cutscene I didn’t get the pivotal dialogue option. The characters, who I was supposed to be choosing sides between,…

The Occupation sneaks into stores in search of a scoop

The Occupation is out now, White Paper Games's investigative journo-thriller wrapped in the trappings of a sneaky immersive sim. Putting players in the shoes of an English journalist in 1987, a restrictive government bill that sounds remarkably like the American PATRIOT act is about to come into force. There's only a few hours left, and the clock is ticking in real-time, but snooping around the…

Humble Monthly offers Fighting, Sneaking and Viking for cheap

Another impressive month of deals in the Humble Monthly - I'm impressed at how consistently good Humble's subscribe-o-bundle has been this past year, and the next set headlines with a trio of gems. Northgard, Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden and Absolver cover a wide spread of genres, but all three games are united by one common thread; they all got free expansions recently. You…

The anatomy of a scoop in journo-thriller The Occupation

As a lifelong fan of immersive sims since before we had a name for the genre, I need to get my grubby mitts on The Occupation, an investigative thriller set in politically taut '80s London. With a clock ticking in real-time and a conspiracy to be untraveled before a quiet and painfully legal government crackdown, there's a lot to be done. With only days until…

Crying Suns warps in a faster, meaner demo on Steam

Crying Suns feels a bit like playing FTL in the universe from Lexx - weird, uncomfortable, unquestionably a bit evil and confusingly exciting. Space here is a mean place full of freaks and lunatics, and you're an expendable cloned captain sent to find out just how it got so bad. Developers Alt Shift released a demo to accompany the Kickstarter funding their rogue-ish game of…

The Humble Caffeine Bundle is full of games worth staying up late for

Today's Humble Caffeine Bundle is chock full of very good games for very little money, but a little hard to categorise. United under the banner of Caffeine - a "social broadcasting platform for gaming", not the life-giving stimulant - there's eight games here, each one representing a wildly different genre. We've got the Metroidy Headlander, platform roguelike Gonner, party game tank shooter Treadnauts, a historical…

New Humble Bundle offers Gang Beasts, Gnog, and… Everything

An eclectic mix of decent games including local multiplayer sillyfighter Gang Beasts, head-spinning puzzler Gnog, and everything simulator Everything are bagged up together in the latest Humble Bundle at a good price. The Humble Double Fine Presents Bundle is its name, gathering games Double Fine published rather than ones they've made themselves. They have an unusual eye like few other 'indie' publishing labels, though they…

The new Humble Monthly is the cheapest way to meet Kazuma Kiryu

Yakuza 0 and Tom Clancy's The Division (which is rather good too) are the headlining games in the latest Humble Monthly. That makes it a very cheap way to get to know Yakuza hero Kazuma Kiryu - everyone should, unless you're some kind of jerk in which case run. Despite his occupation as a Professional Crimesman, he's the nicest man alive, and will help you with all…

Humble Dystopian Bundle gives some good, grim games for cheap

Everyone wants in our our (Post-)Apocalyptic Day, casting doom and gloom all over. First Bethesda launched Fallout 76 early to meet us, and now the latest bargain Humble Bundle packs a load of games with visions of the future ranging from 'society sucks now' to 'slug cats have replaced humanity'. Its theme is 'Dystopian' and its games are pretty deece, with some you'll not often…

Comic style strategy-shooter Void Bastards announced

Developers Blue Manchu are turning their sights towards the first person shooter genre with the new announcement of Void Bastards. It’s quite a difference from their previous work, the collectable card/board game Card Hunter, but they say not to expect your typical FPS either. Take a look at the trailer to see for yourself:

The Humble WB Games Classics Bundle has a lot of super-biff for cheap

Today's Humble Bundle - probably the PC gaming deal of the day - contains a lot of grimdark Bat-biffery, and a few surprises on the side. Seven games for (up to) $12, mostly comics-themed, but with some underappreciated stuff in there. Plus, the incongruously bright Bastion and the wildly weird and happy Scribblenauts Unlimited, all capped off with the complete edition of Batman: Arkham Knight…

First-person investigator The Occupation delayed into 2019

I've been keen to get stuck into The Occupation next week, investigating an apparent terrorist attack in 1987 England by snooping and interviewing people across simulated real time, but alas I'll have to wait. The Occupation had been due next Tuesday, October 9th, but developers White Paper Games today announced a short-notice delay pushing it all the way back to February 5th, 2019. They give…

New Humble Bundle packs Soma, Lisa, Opus Magnum, and more good games

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll hurl with the latest bargain Humble Bundle, which packs together eight games of wildly different tone but one unifying characteristic: they're all rated "Overwhelmingly Positive" in Steam's aggregated players reviews. Its experiences include getting spooked under the sea in Soma, building alchemical machines in Opus Magnum, shooting mutants in Nuclear Throne, helping people in Wuppo, and giving your very blood…

The Humble Unity Bundle contains some great stories, and the tools to tell your own

While it still bears some reputation as a scrappy little browser-game toolset (and that's no bad thing - it enabled much of the GMTK 2018 jam recently), ubiquitous game development platform Unity has spread to all corners. While I don't have a single creative bone in my body, the Humble Unity Bundle contains a pile of Unity tools and assets to build your dream game. Even…

The Humble Jackbox Party Bundle includes too much party for you to handle

If you've never played any of the Jackbox games, Humble are offering you the chance to fix that for cheaps. You can pay what you want to get Fibbage XL and Quiplash in the Humble Jackbox Party Bundle, which will both reveal that your friends can be way funnier than you ever gave them credit for. They're party games that everyone plays via their phones,…

My lethal pony – Equestria-aping fighting game Them’s Fighting Herds out this month

I'm not altogether sure I enjoy it when something which once caused astounded pointing and giggling later becomes An Actual Real Thing. Case in a point, I've got a sneaking feeling I'm going to enjoy Them's Fighting Herds a lot less once it's a fully-functioning fighting game installed on my hard drive than I did when it was but a totally unexpected video of suspiciously…

The Humble Paradox Bundle will net you Stellaris, Crusader Kings 2, Pillars of Eternity and more

What's your favourite paradox? My current one is 'how can the many awesome games in The Humble Paradox Bundle 2018 cost so little money?'. Wait, that's not a paradox - it's just a really good deal. Looks like I need to finish this news post then head back to paradox school. Fortunately I won't need to enrol to enjoy the games on offer here. This…

Staxel brings more farm-o-craft antics to early access

It's typical, eh: you wait ages for a Stardew-o-Harvest-a-Crossing crafty farming daily life sim, then two come along to early access at once. My Time At Portia today delivers a cheery vision of the post-apocalypse, while Staxel here has more of a fairytale vibe and Minecraft-y style, not to mention online multiplayer. Yes, it is weird that neither crafty farmy miner has flinched in this…
