The concept and the name started as a Quake mod, after all, although it's now it's own separate thing published by Electronic Arts.This modern incarnation is a 3v3 shooter, out now, with class abilities and rocket-based weapons…

The next game from the makers of Fe is Lost In Random

The studio behind Fe and Flipping Death today announced their next game, Lost In Random. Looking like some sort of action-adventure dealio, it continues their real strong sense of style. We play a girl in a fairytale land ruled by the roll of the dice, and I think now the dice becomes our friend and it's alive and we use it to beat up baddies?…

Rocket Arena preview: hands on with the new EA Originals 3v3 arena exploder

I don't like rocket jumping. It is silly. And yet, I had a good time with Rocket Arena, the upcoming online shooter, when I played in a closed preview event a bit over a week ago. It's coming on July 14 from Final Strike Games, via little known indie publisher Electronic Arts.The original version of Rocket Arena was a mod for Quake, which your dad…

Feature: I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky

Sea Of Solitude review

The character Britta from the TV show Community once, when challenged, described an analogy as “like a thought with another thought’s hat on”, which is pretty good. So, that being the case, Sea Of Solitude is like a whole bunch of thoughts wearing other thoughts’ hats. The thoughts all did a wacky hat swap at the office for Comic Relief, and now none of the…

Sea Of Solitude sets sail for launch on July 5th

Metaphor-laden action adventure Sea Of Solitude now has a release date, and should be launching on Origin this July 5th, assuming favourable winds. Published under EA's Originals line, it's developed by Jo-Mei Games, and tells a story of a wanderer in a world where loneliness and depression turn people into literal monsters. From the little scraps we've seen over the years, it looks a little like…

Fe takes you into a gorgeous forest from early 2018

1. Fe [official site] looks beautiful 2. Is it possible to listen to Dirty Paws by Of Monsters and Men without feeling like you've been shunted so hard into 2014 that you could probably claim whiplash compensation from EA after being involved in a collision that wasn't your fault? 3. It really reminds me of a game I can't place! 4. While I deal with…

EA Originals Program Starts With Lovely-Looking Fe

Last E3, Electronic Arts introduced us to a charmingly nervous Swedish chap who introduced us to Yarny and Unravel. This year, they announced a program apparently to help make that an annual tradition. During their E3 doodad, EA announced EA Originals, an initiative to fund and publish smaller games from smaller studios. They've done this a bit before, of course, only now it has a…
