Nightmare On Steam Street: Popcap Founder’s Slayaway Camp Gets A Deluxe Edition

Slayaway Camp [official site] is a block-based, 80s slasher film-inspired puzzle-murder game from one of the guys who oversaw Popcap during its Peggle/Plants vs Zombies/Bookworm Adventures imperial phase. Popcap co-founder Jason Kapalka teamed up with Ido Yehieli, of the excellent micro-roguelike Cardinal Quest games, for this Vorhees'n'Myerslike starring an "adorable voxel murderer." They also recruited Mass Effect VO-man Mark Meer (no relation as far as…

Let Us Pray For Cardinal Quest 2

Pocketsized, appropriately brutal pseudo-retro roguelike Cardinal Quest merrily destroyed big fat gobbets of my time recently, though I'll confess this was on my phone rather than my PC, via a recent Android bundle. It was a fine excuse to not leave the sofa for up to three hours at a time, several times a day. I hold Cardinal Quest developer Ido Yehieli solely responsible for…

Spare A Thought For The IndieFort Bundle

The new IndieFort bundle over at Gamersgate is like a pick and mix stand, allowing purchasers to select three, six or nine games from a selection of 24. Three for £2.49, six for £4.49 or nine for £6.49. There are a few obvious savings, with Telepath RPG: Servants of God and Air Buccaneers valued at £17.95 and £24.95 respectively. There are deals to be had…

Don't forget in these crowdsourced times that indie bundles remain very much a going concern. If anything, the huge success of the latest Humble Bundle (alright it might be only semi-indie, whatever, don't be boring) means focus might once again turn to pay-what-you-want, publisher-free collections. Two more have turned up in recent days. IndieGala's latest contains both PC and Android versions of some right little…

Revenge Of The Bundle: IndieFort

Emergency! Emergency! The world is running out of words to put after 'indie' when coming up with new pay-what-you-want bundle titles. Gamersgate have opted for 'fort' as theirs, with that perhaps unintended sideeffect that when I think IndieFort I picture a castle wearing a checked shirt and some black-framed plastic spectacles. Oh well! The roster of included games is fairly impressive in this one, and…

Cardinal Quest: Devoutly But Briefly Free

While knickers are being busily twisted about whether claiming The Binding of Isaac as in any way qualifies as a roguelike is right up there with the purest, most horrifying, most unforgivable evil of calling a real-time tactics game a real-time strategy game, let's also look at something that does fit that genre without outrage. This one's turn-based and everything! Cardinal Quest, which impressed our…

Virtuous: Cardinal Quest

Hacking, slashing and indeed crawling through dungeons should get boring, shouldn’t it? Even when they’re randomly generated, aren’t they all the same? Dank, grimy, dim and claustrophobic. Rubbish places. If I came across one at the bottom of my street I’d complain to the council. But when Cardinal Quest invites me to go slay an evil minotaur I’m more than ready to trudge down, level…
