Humble Grumbles / Bundle Of Joy

Good news and less good news from the Humble Bundle camp today. The happier end of the bargain is that purchasers of the current Humble Bundle 4 now get the base contents of Humble Bundle 3 (i.e. VVVVVV, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, And Yet It Moves, and Hammerfight) added to their pack. That's if they've bought HB4 already. If they haven't, they'll have to beat…

We’ll Go Some More A-Roving: Extrasolar

A potentially habitable planet has been discovered outside our solar system and, right now, the eXoplanetary Research Institute is looking for volunteers to explore the surface. You'd be controlling a rover and gathering data on the planet and its inhabitants, whether flora or fauna. Sound good? That's the premise of the new game from Lazy 8 Studios, makers of Cogs. It's called Extrasolar and it's…

None More Bundley: Humble Bundle 3 Is Go

First there was a Humble Indie Bundle. Then there was another Humble Indie Bundle. And now, there is a third Humble Indie Bundle! So it goes.

IGF Factor 2010: Cogs

How beautiful, how wonderful can you make a sliding puzzle game? With a steam-punk flourish, Lazy 8 Studios' Cogs shows exactly how far the genre can be pushed. Comrade Walker - our official master of puzzles - totally adored it upon its release. Now that it's picked up a nomination for Excellence in Design, we thought it time to talk to their Rob Jagnow about…

Splendindie-bundle on D2D

Direct 2 Drive have announced they're running and indie games bundle until Sunday. The bundle contains Democracy 2, Cogs, Zeno Clash, The Path, and Defence Grid. All great games. Which rather reveals the problem with the pack: you probably own a couple of these games already. Nevertheless, for those aberrant consumers among us, the deal is good. £11.50 for Britons, and $17.75 for North Americans.…

Revolutionary: Cogs Impressions

If you look at a British £2 coin, you'll notice there's a motif in the design of one of the circles that shows a series of interlocking cogs. When the coin was originally launched, the Royal Mint declared that these cogs represented "the evolution of technology from the Iron Age to the internet". Another thing you'll notice if you look carefully is there are nineteen…
