Frog Fractions, your favourite oddity browser game, is out now on Steam

The 2012 browser game now has a Steam presence in Frog Fractions: Game Of The Decade Edition. It is, I suppose, an arcade game with an educational element - or perhaps more accurately a spoof of games with an educational element. You play as a wee frog who perches on a lilypad, defending your pond from waves of incoming flying insects by lashing out with…

It's a bit late to the battle royale party, but Hyper Scape is just about ready to leave open beta. Ditching the Twitch-drop invites to enter open beta earlier this month, Ubisoft's take on the massive last-person-standing deathmatch genre launches properly next month, kicking off its first season with a new weapon, new hack, limited-time modes and the almost-mandatory 100-tier battle pass.

Yarntown sounds like a really lovely time. Hearing just the name, I'd think of an adorable little village filled with houses made from yarn, held together with knitting needles. It's very much not that, however, it's actually a cutesy 16-bit version of FromSoftware's PS4 exclusive, Bloodborne, made by Max Mraz. It's an impressive feat, too - Max has recreated Bloodborne's very first area, Central Yharnam,…

I woke up too early to enjoy the Oregon Country Fair In The Clouds

But then, with the whole Covid-19 pandemic going on, it's not like there are many being held this year anyway. In place of their usual mud n' music happenings, however, the Oregon Country Fair In The Clouds has taken the 50-year-old folksy…

Trackmania is out now

Trackmania is a series that... christ, look at this mess. I'm not going to lay out the whole history of the series. They stretch back to 2003, over a dozen or so games on almost as many platforms.
