else { Heart.break() } Will Make Players Programmers

Erik Svedang's Blueberry Garden was a delightful, surreal platformer about exploring a world in order to discover how to play the game, so it's only right his next game would be an even meatier meta-commentary on games: else { Heart.break() } puts you in a world where the game's code itself can be accessed and altered by the player, prompted on by characters in the…

Hanbitsoft Savages Flagship. Like, Really.

The Hellgate situation appears to be descending further into Hell. Hellgate Guru have translated this story in the Korean press where their Hanbitsoft are terribly mean about partners-in-Hellgate Flagship. "Selfish"? "Irresponsible”?

Lifters, Shifters, And Drifters

If these people find messing around with cranes, and tumbling down hillsides in jelly-tyred juggernauts half as entertaining as I do then Rigs Of Rods should sweep the board at next year's IGF. The version the judges will be playing was unveiled yesterday. Bigger, better, and beautiful-er than before, it's one of two excellent freeware automotive sims released this month.

Quasi-Exclusive! Newell on the future of the PC

I met Gabe Newell a while back when I was reviewing Half-Life 2 or something, but I completely failed to interview him. Well, he was distracting me - I had a game to play! And my dictaphone batteries were probably dead. Anyway, I shook his hand and said that I was just fine, thanks. Comrade Bramwell from Eurogamer.net is a little cannier than me, and…
