Bubsy: Paws On Fire taking the rubbo bobcat autorunning

After years as a punchline, it seems Bubsy has again become an active series. And we're supposed to accept that. We're supposed to tell our children that's the world we've created for them. Our children, who'll grow up knowing Bubsy not from the astonishing Bubsy 3D: Bubsy Visits The James Turrell Retrospective but from collectathon platformers with awful puns. Our children. You tell my child,…

Feature: Shoot the real me!

We asked a lot of people: what would you do to a clone of yourself?

Over the past several weeks I have sent a lot of interesting people who work in the games industry an email containing the following scenario: "You enter a room. The door locks behind you.

December 13th is when Different Cloth's weird racing game arrives, and to be honest I'm still not entirely sure how its whole deal of 'racing across multiple tracks at the same time' works. That's fine.…

Tharsis Blasting Off To Mars Tomorrow

Hands up: who wants to embark upon a manned mission Mars to investigate alien signals? One minor complication: the ship's been crippled by an asteroid storm. And that's just the first disaster of many. Cannibalism may not be strictly necessary, but do bear in mind it's an option. If that sounds like your 'bag', have a gander at Tharsis [official site]. The turn-based space survival…

Gaijin No More: BIT.TRIPPERS Announce Two Space Games

Ooh, it's all go at BIT.TRIP creators Gaijin Games. They're not Gaijin Games any more, for one thing. Well, they are a bit, sometimes, in certain circumstances. But under the new name Choice Provisions they're getting far away from Japan, blasting off into space by announcing two cosmic new games. Laserlife is "a metaphysical journey of euphoric sights and euphonic sounds" about a spaceman's memories,…
