Weird West is a top-down immersive sim announced by some Arkane veterans

The gunsmoke and ghouls of the wicky-wicky wah wah weird weird west are the setting for the debut game from a studio founded by some Arkane veterans, announced tonight at The Game Awards. It is named simply Weird West and yes, it is bold to yoink an established fiction genre's name for your game. Weird West is an immersive sim-y action-RPG setting out for adventures…

Devolver Digital allege self-care app “ripped off” platformer Gris

Like it or not, it's hard to argue that Nomada Studio's debut Gris isn't an absolute stunner. Alice B found it a bit bleedin' obvious with its themes of feminine fragility and trauma in her Gris review, but that doesn't stop it being an absolutely gorgeous picturebook platformer. She wasn't alone, either. This week, publishers Devolver Digital alleged that a French studio has "ripped off"…

Slithery squish ’em up Carrion has a free demo available this week

Since I first saw a gif of the squishy guts monster of Carrion I haven’t been able to decide whether its movement is nauseating or beautiful. Playing its free demo, which is available now through next Saturday, November 2nd, has neither settled my stomach nor my appreciation for its aesthetics. I think this is a good thing.

Minit is this week’s free adventure on the Epic Games Store

Okay, sixty seconds on the clock, let's go: Monochrome adventure Minit is the Epic Games Store's free game for the week. Solve the mystery of the sword factory, collect photographs, grab some coffee and listen to an old man ramble by the sea in this delightful little adventure game with a lethal twist. Every 60 seconds you drop dead and begin the cycle anew. But…

Feature: Hang on a second

Have You Played… Minit?

This year's E3 may have been dubbed "the year of the time-loop game", but I'd argue there's nothing as tight or as satisfying in this emerging subgenre as the 60-second sojourns you'll face in monochrome puzzler Minit. You play a small, nameless duck-faced fellow who has the terrible misfortune to happen upon a cursed sword that locks him into a minute-long time-loop, and - oh,…

Metal Wolf Chaos XD puts the American President into a mech suit

I've just come across the most recent fact to have ruined my day, and I'm here to share it with you: Did you know that the year 2004 - a time which exists in my mind as a temporal island that I was just walking through about three minutes ago - actually took place 15 years ago? It's true, because I was able to do…

Gorn emerges from the early access arena soaked in blood

Gladiatorial VR slugfest Gorn has finally left early access after a full two years of tweaking and tuning. While perhaps not as technically impressive as newer virtual reality hack n' slashers, Free Lives' brawler has been a favourite for the space-goggle crowd since its debut. Out yesterday, the 1.0 patch adds a final boss to the story mode. Now, big-headed Emperor Alimta will face you…

Feature: Catus Aran

Gato Roboto review

Cats are adorable house pets loved by millions, but they're also fluffy little terrors. They can bring home their terrified, half-dead prey, lie down in really inconvenient places, or, y'know, press the one button that makes your spaceship plummet into an abandoned research facility. Gato Roboto is a cutesy platformer where you control Kiki, the house cat of a pilot name Gary, who is now…

Metal Wolf Chaos XD throws down at the Fight House on August 6th

The headline does not lie - one of the boss fights in FromSoftware's Metal Wolf Chaos XD is a mech battle against an armoured, armed and re-branded White House. Despite arguably being the most American game on the original Xbox, its tale of a power-armoured US President liberating the nation one state at a time has been Japanese-only until now. Ported to PC by General…

Feature: Katana Zero, My Friend Pedro nil

Katana Zero review

Katana Zero has the juiciest text boxes I've ever seen. During dialogue, words can imply the pace of speech by appearing letter-by-letter or thumping on screen one word at a time. Words and phrases can be highlighted in different colours, and can further suggest intonation by animating wavily or by each letter shaking as if terrified. When in conversation, there's a timer during every player…

My Friend Pedro review

My Friend Pedro looks incredible in animated GIFs. That's how I first encountered it, via a short clip which showed a man in a mask, hanging upside down from a zipline while he fired twin pistols in opposite directions. Now that I've played this run-and-gun platformer for myself I can confirm that this is one of many spectacular moves it allows you to smoothly and…

My Friend Pedro kickflips into stores with a swanky cartoon trailer

Gun-fu platformer My Friend Pedro is out now, letting players stunt off a skateboard while ricocheting bullets off a flying frying pan, all at the behest of a talking banana named Pedro. Unsurprisingly snapped up by Devolver Digital, this has been a slow-burn passion project for solo developer Victor Ågren, operating under the studio name DeadToast Entertainment. Originally a flash-based browser game, it has evolved into…

Croteam’s anniversary Steam sale includes a bargain bin VR bundle

Here's one for the space-goggles crowd to jump on. Croteam, the plucky studio behind the Serious Sam series and the lovely philoso-puzzler The Talos Principle, are running a 26th anniversary Steam sale for the next two days. While offering good deals across the board, the most surprising thing is a bundle of all their virtual reality games, currently going for 92% off its usual price.…

Enter The Gungeon is this week’s Epic Games Store freebie

The silly, maddeningly tough and compelling Enter The Gungeon by Dodge Roll Games is the new giveaway on the Epic Games Store, and an easy pick for fans of terrible puns. Take the Binding Of Isaac (or any roguelike-like action dungeon crawler), clean up the blood, and stuff it with bullets to dodge and videogame firearm goofs. Descend into the six chambers of the Gungeon…

Devolver Bootleg review

What have those scoundrels at Devolver Digital gone and done now? Oh look, it’s Devolver Bootleg, a mixtape of the Punk IPA publisher's classics that someone left in their jeans pocket before a wash and now the musics all fuzzy and the track list is garbled nonsense. Also it’s one percent off, yeah, because screw…discounts? So, is this a delightful slice of performance-art-as-consumer-product brilliance? Or…

Fall Guys is a multiplayer obstacle course of Takeshi’s Castle foolishness

Get one hundred people together in a wasteland their natural inclination will be to find guns and murder each other to pieces, the ongoing glut of battle royale shooters would have you believe. It wasn't always this way. Television gameshows like It's A Knockout, Wipeout, and especially Takeshi's Castle once showed us that dozens of competitors can come together to fanny about in weird minigames,…

Carrion’s awful meatbeast picked up and petted by Devolver

That game where you play a horrible John Carpenter's The Thing squiggling through vents with far too many meaty tentacles and adding the biomass of hapless humans to your own, or Carrion to use the actual name you can never remember so you end up spinning long descriptions that start with e.g. "you play a horrible John Carpenter's The Thing", has found a fitting publisher…

My Friend Pedro flips out on June 20th

Acrobatic bullet-time platformer My Friend Pedro is just two weeks away, after over five years in development. I've been keeping an eye on DeadToast's snazzy-looking shooter for a while, as its animated GIFs and trailers are always a joy, featuring a gleeful array of acrobatic ways to shoot a dude. Shoot them while kickflipping off a skateboard, hanging upside down from a rope or with…

Katana Zero cuts deep with a brutal Hard Mode update

Katana Zero was a lovely game -- a side-scrolling samurai Hotline Miami -- but perhaps a little on the short side. Ending on a maddening cliffhanger, developer Askiisoft says there's more levels and story in the works as free DLC. Until then, they're putting players through the wringer. Two new modes were added in a big patch yesterday, Speedrun mode and Hard Mode. The former…

Gato Roboto scampers into stores today

Put a cat in a big stompy mech suit and what do you get? Really big scratches in the curtains, probably, but also a neat looking monochrome Metroid-alike. Gato Roboto, developed by Doinksoft, is out today and looking adorable despite its high explosion quotient. As well as a big multi-functional robot suit, the cat can hop out of their armour in order to solve puzzles,…
