Cortex Command is free for keepsies right now

The side-scrolling shoot-o-platform-a-strategy Cortex Command is free right now on Steam--free free, forever--but you'll need to be quick. You've only got another day-and-a-bit to grab it, so hop to it. Is certainly is worth ten seconds of effort to get for free. Here, check out some of what resident RPS tactface Tim Stone thought of it in Cortex Command review:

Planetoid Pioneers sets out from early access on February 8th

What are you going to do when you retire? Maybe you'll travel, or go and study something you find interesting just for the sake of it. Maybe you'll find a nice lake to sit next to and do some crocheting. Sadly, one option that isn't available just yet is to hop in a rocket and set about exploring new worlds - unless you count playing…

Premature Evaluation: Planetoid Pioneers

Every week we abandon Brendan on an early access space rock to test his resolve. This time, the janky, comedy physics of Planetoid Pioneers [official site] My robot head is jammed in a gate. I idled too long by a giant steel door while considering my route through the tunnels, and now the door has closed automatically. My bonce is firmly trapped against the ground…

Planetoid Pioneers gets a simpler, cheaper edition

If you were balking at the £30/$40 price tag for the Early Access physics-based building game Planetoid Pioneers [official site] then balk no more. Previously you could only buy a Contributor Edition of the game that gave you developers' tools to craft some of the game's world, but now you can buy a 'Game-Only Edition' that unsurprisingly, includes only the base game – or part of it,…

Planetoid Pioneers Touches Down On Early Access

Wobbly physics crafting game Planetoid Pioneers [official site] makes perfect sense when you see it, but it takes a lot of words to explain fully. Here are those words: it's a 2D physics building game set upon and inside planetoids in which you must survive, gather resources, fight enemies and craft vehicles, with a creative mode in which you can make your own sprites, construct…

Planetoid Pioneers Is Spore Meets Garry’s Mod In 2D

Someone could create an incredible game within Planetoid Pioneers [official site], it's just too early to tell whether that someone is its developers. My demo at Gamescom 2015 focuses mainly on the tools being used to make the game, and with good reason: they're impressive, expansive, and they'll ship with the game when it launches on Early Access this autumn.

Brainy: Cortex Command To Get Steam Release, Trailer

Cortex Command is a recipe book for robots fighting each other across a 2D landscape. It is brilliant, it is difficult, it is awkward, it is ludicrous and fantastic. It's one of my favourite indie projects - long hampered by tortuously slow development over many years - and I am pleased as punch that it is now about to find itself on that vast steambotic…

Cortex Command Is Still Unfinished, Amazing

I love Cortex Command. It's one of my favourite indies ever. The current build of this brain-defending, bunker-building, robot-deploying, side-scrolling tactical digging and shooting game means that it has a tonne of interesting scenarios you can set up and play, but currently the campaign (which I'd jumped into to take a look at) is a bit completely broken. Cortex Command has been out in "work…

Cortex Command

Travesty! I've just realised that we've never linked to the utterly superb bunker-architecting side-scrolling four-player battle game Cortex Command. Luckily IndieGames.com feature page averted this catastrophe, and I can link you guys to the demo. Cortex Command is a 2D base-building game in the vein of Worms, only with robots piloted by disembodied brains and giant bunked filled with electronic death. (Also the astoundingly detailed…
