Metal Never Dies: Slain Back From Hell With New Update

Slain [official site] was full of retro \m/etal style, with pixel art skulls bathed in lurid lighting, skellingtons to bash, blood and slime all over the place, and music by a former member of Celtic Frost. It's a shame that the hack 'n' slash platforming all that is built upon was kinda blah. The developers had rushed it out, see, planning to patch later. Unsurprisingly,…

Dreambreak Escapes The Police State On July 21

In Dreambreak [official site], you're in a whole heap of a mess. In an alternate reality, Soviet Russia isn't the most fun place to be, especially when you've been framed for murder. Will you manage to solve the mystery or will it be straight to the gulag for you? I can't say, but we'll find out on July 21 when Dreambreak launches.

Can’t Kill The Metal: Slain! Released

You can delay the metal, even quite a bit. But kill it? Please. These devs are so hardcore they actually listed 666-666-6666 as their phone number. (Madlibs: replace "hardcore" with a word of your choice. Just don't be too mean.) You know what you're in for. Slain! [official site] is a 2D hack-and-slash platformer with a gothic aesthetic that you may find gorgeous, repulsive or…

To Azimuth’s Paranormal Adventure Coming In 2017

An adventure game about a brother and sister in '70s Alabama searching for their lost brother, who may or may not have been abducted by aliens, sounds right up my alley. It helped that developers [bracket]games had already released a game I liked, Three Fourths Home. While To Azimuth's Kickstarter…

Stormy Story – Three Fourths Home: Extended Edition

Look, let's be clear: I liked Three Fourths Home [official site] before it was cool. Okay? Before it was nominated for 'Excellence in Narrative' in this year's Independent Games Festival awards, I was digging the interactive short story. Now you'll all know about it and hey, that makes me glad! It's a lengthy phone call between a directionless twenty-something and her family as she drives…

Grossing You Out This Spring: Slain

In much the same way that it's okay when it's zombies, retro decapitate-'em-up Slain relies on developer Andrew Gilmour's gorgeous pixel art to make it's gore-splattering slightly less horrifying. It's an action platformer featuring a two stage system of seven levels each comprising a side-scrolling wilderness and vertical-scrolling tower. The outside areas will usually be combat orientated and denser with enemies, while the towers have more puzzles and traps.…

Platforming Inside The Walls: The Sun And Moon

The Sun and Moon is the latest game to go from Ludum Dare entry to fully released title. It was the overall winner of the 29th iteration of the 48 hour game jam, developer Daniel Linssen impressing with his platforming interpretation of the theme "beneath the surface." In it you control a ball of light with the ability to phase through walls, reversing gravity while…
