Ben But No Dan: The Often-Ending Story

"When's the new Ben & Dan game coming?" the crowd throbbing around Dan Marshall pleads. Something about the way his shirt is always unbuttoned, inevitably one button beyond appropriate, makes people assume he's in control. "You know, Son of Ben & Dan, or Revenge of the Balloon-Headed Mexican, or whatever it is, when oh when oh where oh why?" You don't need Dan. You probably…

Feature: Or 'why Windows 8 meant starting over from scratch'

Whatever Happened To The Swindle?

The Swindle was the much-anticipated next game from Time Gentlemen, Please and Privates dev Size Five Games. Then things went quiet. Very, very quiet. But why? Wha'happened? Will we ever get to play this cyberpunk crime caper? Here, Size Five's Dan Marshall reveals for the first time why the game went dark - a sad tale of Windows 8-based potential doom, leading to a Summer…

Setting Sale: The Adventure Bundle (In A Box)

Adventure, ho! In the sense of heading out, of course, not issuing a demand to an unimaginative lady of the night. This latest pay-more-or-less-what-you-want bundle to hit the net is a pretty good deal, with seven games for the usual pay-more-or-less-what-you want, including Gemini Rue and a brand new offering called The Sea Will Claim Everything, a bit of charity, and an interesting way to…

Size 5 “Probably” Making New Ben & Dan

Or, at least, they've gone down the pub and brainstormed and even made a bunch of ideas and puzzles, ending up with something which might just turn into a full game. The Swindle remains project no.1,…

Zombie Cow Is Dead: It’s Size Five Games

In a rather peculiar move, Zombie Cow - the indie developers behind the brilliant Ben There, Dan That, and Time Gentlemen, Please - have changed their name. No longer are they post-bovine, and have now become Size Five Games. Why? I'm not sure even they know why. Something about "Zombie Cow" being embarrassing to say in business situations. Well, I recommend trying to be "Rock,…

Zombie Cow: No Plans To Make Forthcoming Sequel

The fellows at Zombie Cow, behind the completely fantastic Ben There, Dan That ! , have announced the news that there definitely won't be a sequel to the adventure game. No sirree. Not a chance. And want to know what should go in it. "Oooh, Ben There, Dan That!, eh? Ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, didn’t it? I wonder how veritable heroes Dan…

Ben There, Dan That

Looking at you, I'd say what you need just now is an adventure game to play. Too many E3 videos and arguing in comments threads about things that ultimately just don't matter has left you gaunt and frightened. It's okay. It's oooookay. Get yourself some Ben There, Dan That. (I can't bear that they put an exclamation mark at the end of the title, so…
