Feature: It's the system

Syscrusher is the most fun I’ve had in an FPS all year

I'm still drip feeding on the endless treasures from The Bundle. It's healthier than bingeing, and you get more out of it that way. And that's how I stumbled across Syscrusher, a tiny game about shooting robots. I've installed and wearily deleted a dozen shooters in the last 8 months or so. I wish I could replace all their million unnecessary gigabytes with more of…

Itch’s Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality raised $8.1 million

This morning, Itch.io's Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality ended its ten days of fundraising with a whooping $8,175,480.81 (£6.4 million) going to organisations fighting racial injustice in America, smashing the $5 million goal. By the end, the bundle offered 1704 videogames, tabletop RPGs, tools, books, comics, soundtracks, and more for as little as $5. It was a phenomenal bargain helping great causes. If you…

Wide Ocean Big Jacket is in the big Itch bundle

In February, the creators of the wonderful Little Party released Wide Ocean Big Jacket. I really liked the funny and touching tale of a couple taking their rowdy niece and her quiet friend on their first camping trip. You probably did not play it. But that's okay! It is one of the hundreds of games in Itch.io's Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality so maybe…

Night Of The Consumers is non-violent but still terrifying

I've barely made a dent in the Itch Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality, but I can already recommend Night Of The Consumers as a quick and rewarding intro into its daunting bounty of terrific games. It isn't a zombie game. The monsters are far worse than that. They are... ugh. Customers.

Celeste is a heartfelt and challenging platformer that you should make time to play

I used to think I was pretty good at platformers, until I played Celeste. Made the creators of Towerfall, Celeste drops you in the shoes of Madeline, whose goal is to climb a mountain. Except, the mountain isn't really just a mountain - it's a metaphor for all the difficulties that Madeline, and you, have overcome, and will need to overcome in the future. It's…

I’ve been hanging out with Desktop Goose and he’s the best kind of encouraging turd

We all loved playing as the horrible goose in Untitled Goose Game last year, but Sam Person's Desktop Goose companion has now given me a taste of what it feels like to be on the receiving end of that terrible honking machine. The goose is, as you'd expect, a monster, slapping his tiny feet all across your monitor, dragging in goose-related pictures and notepad messages…

Dont let Master Spy sneak past you

I could use a lot of words and phrases to describe Master Spy that, when I read them in a game's description, tend to put me off. Retro. "Hardcore". Brutal. Platformer. Balaclava.And yet I enjoyed it so much that I almost pitched a review a few years back. It's tough, for sure, and I don't think it's the most approachable stealth platformer, but it feels…

Feature: Hey, $.003 is basically free, right?

Priceless Play – the pick of the Itch Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality

If you exist in almost any corner of the internet which serves the intersection of video games and social justice, you've likely seen the Bundle For Racial Justice and Equality from the good folks over at itch.io. The bundle has been, by all accounts, an overwhelming success. I got to watch the donation amount tick over the million-dollar mark, then the two million-dollar mark, and…

E3 be damned, the hottest thing in gaming right now is Itch's Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality. The absolutely giant bundle tonight passed its fundraising goal of $5,000,000 and is still going, and it is still adding more games. Such as: hey, Pyre is in there now, the gorgeous sporting story from Bastion devs Supergiant. As I write, there are now 1637 items in…

Realm Of The Ghost King: the good roguelike

You could fill a stadium with games that deserve a bigger audience. This marks the third time I've written about Realm Of The Ghost King (including calling it one of the best unknown games of 2018, out of thousands). It's now part of the Itch Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality, and I hope it finally catches on.It is terrific. Even though it's a roguelike.…

Got Animal Crossing FOMO? Play A Short Hike instead

Red Dead Redemption 2 may be a good Animal Crossing substitute for people suffering from AC-FOMO at the moment, but I'd argue that the best PC stand-in for Nintendo's cozy life sim is Adamgryu's A Short Hike, which you can currently get on the cheap as part of Itch's stupidly good value Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality.Indeed, it made the long wait until Animal…

Hive Time is in the Itch Bundle now too

They've only gone and done it. Those maniacs. Hive Time is an obscure gem that squeaked into the very end of last year. It's a game where you be bees. Now it's part of what will surely be forever called simply The Bundle, mentioned only in hushed, reverent tones. Over 1000 developers have donated their games to the Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality, and…

Odd Realm is a standout Dwarffortresslike. With Z levels.

In case you missed the news, the Itch Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality, already the best deal in the history of games, just keeps getting better. An actual more than a thousand games for under a fiver? Absolutely unmissable. And here's another reason why. I keep a list of games trying to do what Dwarf Fortress does. Unfortunately the nature of these games is…

Get the excellent Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! for cheap in the Itch Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality

The Itch Bundle For Racial Justice And Equality is only getting bigger, and for a minimum spend of $5 I would encourage you to take a punt. It includes many, many games that are worth that price of entry just by themselves. One that caught my eye straight away was the whimsically punctuated Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!, a restaurant sim and time management cooking game.…
