Sub-aquatic adventure Diluvion: Resubmerged looks seaworthy after a major overhaul

Despite its exciting premise of Jules Verne-inspired nautical adventuring, sea monsters and mechanical leviathans, Diluvion sank out of sonar range shortly after launching early last year - yesterday, it resurfaced under an expanded name. While a striking looking game, it got depth-charged by negative reviews, with complaints about wonky UI and some underdeveloped systems. Developers Arachnid Games have been patching holes ever since. Boasting major improvements,…

Dive! Dive! Dive! Diluvion surfacing in February

"Get in the 'flipping' sea!" some folks in 2015 would shout, because they'd seen someone funnier than themselves do it. But have you been in the 'flipping' sea? Mate, the sea is 'flipping' lovely. Whether one's gentling drifting away or pummelled by the surf, it's always better where it's wetter. By which I mean, of course I've kept an eye on deep sea explore-o-fight 'em…

That in mind, I'm pleased to see games…

Wot I Think: Ballpoint Universe Infinite

Ballpoint Universe is what you get when an artist makes a videogame. Look at any screenshot. But don't take this as unqualified praise because, at times, Ballpoint Universe is nothing but art - a doodle walking through screen after rolling screen of gorgeous scribblings, while you hold a direction. The game straddles multiple genres, but in practice is a simple thing; a leisurely ride through…

Ballpoint Universe Is Mad, Gorgeous, Entirely Hand-Drawn

Hey, remember pens? Once upon a time, humanity used them for chewing into gnarled oblivion (and also writing) before we evolved the ability to channel our psychic whims through keyboards, touch screens, and the like. Depressingly, there will probably soon be a generation that actually needs that explained to them. They'll then nod astonishment through their VR displays before adding, "Wait, what's a keyboard?" At…
