Fast & Furiosa: Games Workshop’s Mad Maxy Dark Future

'Can we make a game like Mad Max: Fury Road before everyone forgets about it or a massive backlash starts up?' is probably a question on a lot of developers' lips right now. Pure momentum, minimal exposition, a whirlwind of wordless world-building: this is the stuff digital dreams are made of. Avalanche are working on an official game, but I think it's the games which…

Massacre Effect: Chainsaw Warrior

There are three immediate things to note about Chainsaw Warrior: 1) Despite claims that they are violent, computerised games have managed to exist for ages without Chainsaw Warrior becoming a best-selling franchise. Gears of War doesn't count. 2) The game is a digital adaptation of a 1987 Games Workshop boardgame for one player. I have never heard of that game but I did adapt Cluedo…
