ToeJam & Earl Gets a Funky New Sequel In 2017

ToeJam & Earl are back for another crack at some old school roguelikelike shenanigans and funky grooves. Aided by a Kickstarter in 2015 and now publishers Adult Swim Games, ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove [official site] is due on PC sometime in 2017. Back in the Groove will see the Sega Mega Drive cult classic's stars crash land back on Earth, where they'll…

Watch Half An Hour Of Double Fine’s Headlander

Oh, hallo there! You've caught me tidying up the last of the E3 stuff on my desk. Sweeping away Tunnock's Teacake wrappers, mostly. But this? Ah yes, this is a half-hour of gameplay footage from Double Fine's Headlander [official site]. Yes, I'd also almost forgotten they were making it. Headlander is a side-scrolling action-adventure about the decapitated head of the last living human romping through…

Get Your Head Around Double Fine’s New Metroidvania

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…

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…

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…

Wasted: A First-Person Post-Apocalyptic Pub Crawler

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…

Max Plantain: My Friend Pedro

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…

Jazzpunk review

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…

Live Spy: Jazzpunk Live Action Trailer

I first encountered comedy spy 'em up Jazzpunk at about 2am. I was on a merry jaunt through the IGF entries, and fell into it without knowing what I was about to encounter. I was spat out the other side, grinning and desperate to talk about it. I immediately informed John that he needed to play it and that I wanted to write about it,…

Noir More Waiting: Jazzpunk Gets A Release Date

Last year, games like The Stanley Parable and Saints Row IV restored my faith in games' ability to be truly, tear-blastingly funny. I still think we can take things further, though. Much further. Jazzpunk may well be a step (followed by a slapstick banana peel slip) in the right direction. While it's littered with scraps of sharply written text, its main focus is on providing…
