Yucatan drives into my neon drenched heart with first demo

Yucatan is a Mexican Day of the Dead themed, neon-soaked, low poly adventure that wants to bring Metroidvania style game design to the arcade racer genre. I mean... throw the word "blockchain" in there somewhere and I think this adequately sums up everything the internet is into right now? Unfortunately, you've got a bit of a wait on this, as Yucatan is set to be…

Feature: MasterChef

Battle Chef Brigade review

They say the best meals start with the finest ingredients. For example, if you take a freshly bought Pot Noodle, add a splash of boiling water and a soupçon of sachet sauce, you have a tasty meal for the bachelor in a hurry. Trinket Studios' Battle Chef Brigade is a little more omnivorous, and a lot more ambitious, drawing from puzzle games and anime and…

Tough platformer Rain World gets easy mode in beta

The harsh and wet ruins of Rain World are now slightly less harsh (but still just as wet), say developers Videocult. That’s good, that’s real good. In the summer we learned there’d someday be an easier “Monk” mode for anyone struggling with the game's "disco lizards", as well as a harder “Hunter” mode for anyone who thought death by a dozen leeches did not come…

Rain World and Glittermitten Grove on sale for $cheap

Here’s some cheapo games because you like cheapo things and you’re a cheapo person. Don’t give me that look, I’m just being honest. The same folks that do this sort of thing all the time are Humbling Bundling survival platformer Rain World together with Glittermitten Grove, which is a fairy management sim and definitely not hiding any other amphibious videogames inside its slimy belly sac,…

Vomit giant sausages to gain Gecko Ridemption

The humble gecko is a magnificent creature. Have you heard them scream? Well now you might, because Gecko Ridimption [official site] is a free frenzy of colour featuring sticky lizards with the ability to puke whole kayaks onto the wall and shoot lasers from their faces causing massive explosions. I’d give you a reason for all this reptile chaos, but the best I can come…

Rise & Shine is running and gunning onto Steam today

Adult Swim are releasing their run 'n' gun game Rise & Shine [official site] today via Steam. It features a boy and his talking gun shooting their way through gaming history when their colourful world is invaded by the forces of Next Gen in the form of zombies, marines and the like. The trailer, which you can see below, doesn't make the distinction between the…

Doublefine’s Robotic Bodysnatcher: Headlander

Headlander [official site] made me think of Wall-E, except there's only one human left in the robot-run offworld colony. Technically, the bots are humans of a sort, the entire race having transferred their consciousness from its fleshy confines into new robotic bodies. Those robots are under the authority of a wicked computer and it's up to the last meat-person (YOU) to save the day. Problem…

Fight, Drink, Die, Repeat: Wasted

Wasted [official site] is "a roguelike post-apocalyptic pub crawler", which instantly places it high on the list of things I'd like to play. And play it I did, right before heading out to E3 last week. I haven't spent enough time to deliver a full judgement but it's a game worth placing a spotlight on, with some smart progression mechanics and a Fallout meets Adult…

Holy Crap, Bears: Holy Crap, Bears!

I haven't written anything about Kentucky Route Zero yet, but Floor 3: Bears is my gaming moment of the year. I bloody love bears, me. I've got three t-shirts with bears on them, my desktop wallpaper is a bear, and I have bought my baby daughter two outfits which make her appear to be some extremely cute human/bear hybrid with poor motor skills. So you're…

Randomised Ranch Dressing: Westerado’s Wild West RPG

Craig wrote about Westerado back in January, but I like to think we live in a time where there is no past or future, only an eternal present. Also I first heard about it at the weekend and it's swell. Westerado is a western-set RPG in which your brother and mother are killed and you want to find who did it and avenge their deaths.…

Feature: Lose Yourself To Dance

Soundodger+ review

Soundodger was absolutely excellent back when I played its original free release earlier this year, but has it somehow become horrible in its frenzied dance lust for more? That unlikely question was brought to you by a need to artificially build contrived tension, and its answer is a resolute, incontrovertible "NOPE." Soundodger+ brings new songs and the ability to make levels out of your own music,…

Smashing Dolphins: Planet Punch Redefines Self-Loathing

Yes, that is a picture of a maniacal star with planets for hands socking a majestic flock of space dolphins. To be fair, they started it. That image pretty much sums up Planet Punch in a nutshell, though: you go through the universe systematically wiping out all life with nothing but a vast cosmic array of apocalyptically powerful planet hands. At heart, it's a relatively…

You’ll Never Guess What Adult Swim’s Adding To TF2

Everyone, I have some regrettable news: I woke up this morning with the sudden realization that - in my heart of hearts - my truest wish has always been to lead a life of megalomaniacal supervillainy. So, incredibly long and spellbindingly interesting story short, I've wired the entire world to explode. Unless! You can tell me - without glancing about one nanometer below this sentence - what's…

Valve Invite You To Meet The Pyro…Soon

Edit: Errrrr, also a massive update for TF2. Details below. So, that Valve/Adult Swim collaboration. As many speculated, it will be the Meet the Pyro video and, yes, 'will be'. It was foolish of us to think that the video would just appear without any foreplay, so instead there's the image above, which tells us that something else will happen on June 27th. I'm guessing…

Bwah? Valve Teams Up With Adult Swim

Ready for something to come out of nowhere and hit you right in the nose? OK, here it comes. Get ready, brace yourself, and... it still hit you. Because that's how things that defy the law of conservation of energy to suddenly materialize on our plane of existence work. I believe a more succinct term for it is "surprise." Anyway! Turns out, it's an announcement -…

Populesque: zOMT

Adult Swim: home of naughty cartoons and a surprising number of clever, free indie games. UK ministudio Preloaded are the latest to join those ranks, with side-scrolling, high-casualty strategy game zOMT. Auto-marching strategy games, wherein your lads do most of the violent legwork for you once you've built them, are increasingly pervasive - the nominal successor to tower defence, and based on similar values. zOMT…
