Absolver’s next free update channels the great Bruce Lee

Absolver, much like its cast of masked pugilists, is a fighter. Sloclap's stylish online brawler-RPG was plagued with server and balance issues through its first few months of life, but the studio believed in it, and haven't given up. For a while, the studio have been working on a major new update centred around a PvE mode featuring new environments and enemies, buffed up with…

This tiny man in Minit is my fave character of 2018 so far

Minit gives you sixty seconds to achieve great things. As soon as you wake, in whichever place you're currently calling home, a timer begins to countdown and when a minute has expired, you die and restart. In that time, you might find a useful item, which will be close at hand in the next life, or you might discover a new area and start to…

Feature: The first rule of fight club is...bow to your opponent

The Joy Of Absolver’s social fight clubs

My career in Street Fighter was a painfully short-lived experience. For a long time, I’d been trying to find a fighting game to really get into and to help me understand a genre I’d always been quietly interested in but entirely apart from. After being gifted Ultra Street Fighter 4 back in 2014, I was quickly hooked on the technical mastery and quick action -…

Lurid rooftop rampage High Hell is out now

High Hell is a game that just screams Devolver. While the indie publisher may not produce much directly, they have curated a house style that is unmistakable. Lurid colours, offbeat (and often crude) humor, low-fi graphics and deep, bassy beats. Developed by Terri Vellmann of Heavy Bullets and with a soundtrack from rapper Doseone (Enter The Gungeon, Gun Godz, Samurai Gunn - he likes guns),…

Ruiner’s first patch makes cyber-life a little less ruinous

Grungy cyberpunk hack n' slasher Ruiner [official site] was well-received at launch, but developers Reikon Games are still tweaking and tuning it behind the scenes. They've just rolled out the game's first major patch (full notes here) since launch, with an emphasis on smoothing out some kinks in the difficulty curve, and making bullets the deadly people-killing projectiles they're meant to be, as opposed to a poor man's melee substitute.
