Prophetic: Glitchhikers Chap Starts Game “EP” With Oracle

These dreamy summer nights continue. Today I'm casting procedural prophecies and rolling my eyes back to watch surreal visions in ΘRAΩLE (and that's the last time I'll stylise that), spinning forecasts from words like "Knots", "Earth", and "Promises" then interpreting dreams of temples, trees, and dagger-pierced hearts. It's too hot but I can't stop staring at this gorgeous polygonal fire. Oracle is the first game…

Eerie Late-Night Public Access TV – 2:22AM

"Play alone," 2:22AM instructs. "Play at night." Approach in that dreamy state of mind and it flickers into life, drawing you into an eerie late-night public access television show. 2:22AM's a free game made of little vignettes from mundanities like frying an egg to, well, things more surreal and sinister, mixed with bleary video clips and wrapped up in analogue crackle and tracking errors. It's…

It's a first-person "exploration and stealth" game (with leaning and everything) about different perspectives and incomplete understanding, possessing people to see the world through their eyes and turning the…

See The Glitchworld: Error City Tourist

What did you do this weekend? Was it worthwhile? Did you create? Did you travel? Did you relax? Did you squander it? Did you waste your weekend? Do you not deserve free time? Do you not wish to become better? Why do you wallow in your rut? You should feel guilty. You should get out. See something new. Just wander aimlessly. Or get yourself all…

Follow The White Rabbit: A Spooky Trip Into Heartwood

Look, Heartwood will not mean to you what it means to me. As I follow spectral animals through a dark grove, I see so much of designer and programmer Kerry Turner, and my friendship with her: riding a miniature steam train in Hove Park, coming close to tears in a magical doll's house shop, being those terrible tall women cackling through games events, and things…
