Bubsy 3D: Bubsy Visits the James Turrell Retrospective remastered

Against all odds, a new Bubsy game is coming this autumn. Some cynics might say that such a rubbo '90s platformer series apparently reaching 'retro icon' status is yet more evidence that video games mistake recognisability for merit, but me, I know this is proof that Arcane Kids saved Bubsy with their 2013 bootleg game Bubsy 3d: Bubsy Visits the James Turrell Retrospective [official site].…

Your Mind Is Not Ready For Arcane Kids’ Bubsy 3D

No, really. It's not. While Arcane Kids have proven quite capable of leveraging serious design savvy in games like Zineth and Perfect Stride, they are also the diabolical duo that drowned us all in snakes that one time. What I'm saying is, their minds inhabit some floating eyeball fire skull ghost realm of the patently absurd, which brings us to Bubsy 3D: Bubsy Visits the…

Insanity: 30 Games From Hotline, KRZ, More Devs For $15

This is probably the most exciting game-related anything I've seen in months. And yes, as the headline suggests, it's entirely bonkers. Remember Zineth developer Arcane Kids' Tribes-meets-Tony-Hawk thing Perfect Stride? Well, it's just one of 30+ games (23 of which are already finished and playable) that'll immediately be yours if you hand LA Game Space a pithy 15 of your bacteria-and-filth-ridden Human Dollars. Experimental Game…

Bittersweet: Arcane Kids’ Room Of 1000 Snakes

One of my favorite things (like, in general; definitely more so than pizza or you) is shouting "DON'T GO IN THERE" at really inopportune moments during movies and TV shows. Related: I don't have many friends. Room of 1000 Snakes, on the other hand, probably warrants that kind of obnoxiously eardrum-walloping bellow, so here's my advice on the subject: do it anyway. The rather brief,…

Zineth Dev’s Perfect Stride Is Tony Hawk Meets Tribes

Remember Zineth? The insanely high-speed neo techno retro future Moon Grind Radio roller skate ultra-thing from Arcane Kids? Well, I should probably start with a long-overdue reminder that it's super great. Go play it, if you haven't already. Now then, onto today's business: Zineth's creators have extracted another game from their hypertronic abstractodelic megaminds, and it looks positively scrumptious. I want to devour it, except…

Shadery Business: Zineth Released

Our eyes popped out of our tiny heads when we saw Zineth's trailer back in May, and it's now out and available to download. I've been having a play with this psychedelic, near-abstract skating game, and I can report: INSAAAAAAAAAAAANE. You skate about in a vast landscape, building up huge momentum for crazy jumps, and do missions that arrive by cellphone. It can be a…

Goodness: I Really Want To Play Zineth

"What is love?" I sometimes ask myself while sipping priceless wine from a priceless chalice made of reasonably priced recyclable goods and chuckling condescendingly at the metaphysical works of Plato and Aristotle. Of course, I already know the answer: Slavish devotion to someone's most specific desires without any compromise whatsoever. Ergo, by that utterly flawless logic, developer Arcane Kids loves me. Its debut, a two-month…
