Humble Very Positive Bundle 2

Have you heard the one about Humble making a new Bundle? It’s a good one. Rather, it’s a Very Positive one.

Following on from the original ‘Very Positive’ Bundle back in May this year, Humble has brought the idea back for another go – in the Humble Very Positive Bundle 2, funnily enough. The collection of games brought together here all feature Steam ratings of ‘Very Positive’ or above and while we can’t always rely on those ratings as proof of a game’s intrinsic qualities, as recent happenings have taught us, rest assured these games are quite good.

Neon Chrome devs announce Dredd ’em up Jydge

The makers of Neon Chrome have announced a new roguelikelike top-down shooter set in the same world. It’s name Jydge [official site], though developers 10tons style the name as JYDGE so the Y looks a bit like a U as if it’s 2012 all over again.

Judge Dredd meets Robocop meets, well, Neon Chrome. Check out the announcement trailer: Read the rest of this entry »

If you’re playing in real-time, you’re probably doing it wrong. Time Recoil is due out within a few months but, for now, you can get a look at the slow-mo murders in this announcement trailer: Read the rest of this entry »

Top-Down Roguelike Neon Chrome Blasts Onto Steam

Neon Chrome [official site] is a game that’s sure of two things: what it is and who it hopes to entertain. It’s a top-down roguelike shooter, you see, that asks you to run frantically around procedurally generated battlegrounds, blast waves of baddies until they stop moving/explode/both, and climb a hierarchy of levels before facing off against a grand final boss. If you don’t like games of this nature, for there are a lot of them, then you probably won’t like like this one. If you do, however, then I think you will like Neon Chrome. I’ve enjoyed what I’ve played.
