Get Your Head Around Double Fine’s New Metroidvania

What's that Lassie? Little Timmy's head has fallen down the well?

Headlander is the next game from Double Fine, and with news that the project lead from the wonderful Stacking is in charge I’m definitely paying attention. Borrowing the body-swapping concept from that Russian Doll-themed game, Headlander applies it more of a Metroidvania structure, with some lovely 70s sci-fi trappings and the option to graft your head onto anything from dogs to dancers. Take a look below.

Rick And Morty Warp Into Dota 2 With Announcer Pack

Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty is a fine television show, a bit like Back to the Future reimagined as the wacky and grotesque adventures of an alcoholic genius and his fool grandson across time and space. Their latest misadventure flings them into the world of Dota 2 [official site], where they voice a new replacement announcer pack.

If you want Rick burping his way through your games and Morty freaking out over everything, you can now buy the pack for £5.35/$7.99. Come have a listen.

Slip On A Steampunk Gravity Glove In Traverser

Adult Swim Games have a pretty good eye for games, as indie publishing labels go – not as good as Devolver, but good enough that when they release a game I’ll cast a trusting eye over it. Their latest is Gatling Goat Studios’ Traverser [official site], a steampunky puzzle-platformer with a gravity gun-type tool. It sees a young lady joining a special peacekeeping force and uncovering the secrets of the sinister Raven Corporation, who control a city split in half. And it’s out now.

Wasted: A First-Person Post-Apocalyptic Pub Crawler

I love sk8ing in the Maul.

War, war never changes. So you might as well fix yourself up a little drink, have a bevy or two, and enjoy the post-apocalyptic future. Have a look at Wasted [Steam page], a roguelikelike shooter which runs on booze and is coming this autumn.

Take one measure of Fallout, two measures of Borderlands, and half a pint of advocaat, stir in your mouth with your own tongue, spit out into a gravy boat, and serve.

Max Plantain: My Friend Pedro

or 'nanana', as my 1-year-old so eloquently puts it

There are two reasons I’m posting about Adult Swim-hosted action platformer My Friend Pedro. The first is that it comes from an ex-Media Molecule designer who worked on the well-regarded Tearaway (which I really must get around to picking up for my dusty Vita before too long), and the other is that it’s a gangster-murdering game about slo-mo combat which features what looks like a banana among its supporting cast. No matter whether the game be woeful or wonderful, that headline could not be squandered.

I know a banana and a plantain aren’t the same thing, but c’mon.

Wot I Think: Jazzpunk

Jazzpunk isn’t an adventure game, it’s an interactive sketch show. Its puzzles are slight and there’s little incentive to advance the scrap of a plot until each area has been scoured and sucked dry. Leave no stone unturned. Despite the setting – a techno-retro, trenchcoat-clad Cold War – the levels aren’t packed with clues, they’re packed with gags. Occasionally, a sidequest emerges from an alleyway but the solution is a punchline rather than an insight. Here’s wot I think.
