Scarygirl Bringing Her Tentacle Arm To PC

Square Enix's Scarygirl, formerly a PSP game, has just been confirmed for a Euro/UK release, and it's definitely happening on PC. It's an action platformer, and it's based on the graphic novel by Nathan Jurevicius. Coming out on Xbox Live Arcade on the 18th Jan worldwide, a PC version will follow "shortly after", whatever that might mean. You can see a trailer for it below.

Multi-Platform: A Tale By Alex

Wow, games are great. Take for instance A Tale By Alex. The game by new indie team Digital Dreams, it's a side-scrolling platformer played on three separated levels... simultaneously. Because each is a version of a kid, Alex's, imagination. It's an amazingly cute idea, the two higher strips showing a reimagining of the real-world interior Alex is playing in. Jump over a table at the…

Fetch Your Shades: Deepak Fights Robots

In October 2009 I very rightly was enormously excited by the lunatic joy of RunMan. Its infectious brightness and unhinged glee were a big part of that. Developer Tom Sennett has picked up on the same vibe in his latest game, the brilliantly named Deepak Fights Robots (if you do nothing else, click on that link). It's a puzzle platform game, heavily inspired by Bubble…

BEEP!

This one's a cutie. A side-scrolling physics platformer, in which you must negotiate levels with the goal of collecting materials for, well, further exploration. BEEP is a robot. Robots are cool, or cute. BEEP is not cool. He's programmed to complete basic tasks, such as gather items, shoot baddies, and manipulate the environment. Thank goodness those are the things anyone needs to do in a…

Demo: The Wonderful Towers Of Mr Imp

There's a point at which looking back on my life can just be humiliating. I was SO rubbish at the classic platformers on the Spectrum. I don't think I ever got past the third screen of either Manic Miner or Chuckie Egg 2. Honestly, I'm a shame to this entire industry. Orm & Cheep was about my level. So the rather snazzy The Wonderful Towers…

Dusky Balls: NightSky Demo

NightSky - the latest game from micro-platforming supremo Nifflas, is out now. And if that's not exciting enough news for you, there's a demo to try to get you there. The full game is ¬£10, but the demo - it's free! Crazy. Once more it's physics platforming, this time rolling a metal sphere through levels in a peculiar dream world. Knowing that it's Nifflas, through…

The Straight (Jacketed) Story: Lylian

Last month I mentioned Lylian, a very strange-looking side-scrolling platformer about a girl in an asylum who imagines her way out. There's now a demo of it, so you can see what you make of the straight-jacketed oddity. Episode 1 is now released, and there's no doubt that it's packed with original ideas. Very, very strange ideas. The big concern does appear to be the…

You Do Have To Be Mad To Live There: Lylian

What you need right before going to bed is to watch this creepy-ass trailer for Lylian, made by the excellently named Pixelpickle. It's properly intriguing. Watching the opening cinematic of an institutionalised girl and her teddy, it's hard to predict it's going to be a side-scrolling platformer. But there it goes, with the unfurled long sleeves of her straight jacket used as weapons. Of course.…

Gardeners’ Questing Time: The UnderGarden

I like the sound of anything zen at the moment. Gosh I'm tired. Fortunately, looking at screenshots of The UnderGarden makes me feel all peaceful and serene. Described as a puzzle exploration game, it boasts relaxing physics challenges, and local co-op so players can, and I swear this is a direct quote, "chill out, work together to solve puzzles and explore the world." Man. It's…

Super Meat Boy Gets Retro 90s Ad

I remember in the late 90s thinking to myself, "I wonder how people will spoof/retro this decade?" It was a ten year spread that seemed to be of such variation, and mostly made up of retroing various previous decades, that it seemed like it wouldn't have a distinct flavour of its own. Of course, time passes and that all changes, as the splendid new pseudo-commercial…

Watch First 20 Minutes Of Super Meat Boy

Super Meat Boy is due to reach the PC on the 20th November. (A month after the XBLA release, sadly.) Team Meat have gathered together (that's Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes) (and not even together, it's by robo-Skype) to present what must be the least professional commentary of the first twenty minutes of a game I've ever enjoyed. Not being able to see the same…

Get Your Privates Patched

Zombie Cow have released a big old update to Privates. What I'm trying to say is, they looked at their Privates, and they realised they weren't good enough. The primary problems with their Privates were their being covered in bugs, often finishing long before the person playing with them was ready, and not being able to perform with many potential partners. What I'm doing here…

Privates Out, Flapping About In The Breeze

Zombie Cow have finally unzipped their trousers, pulled them down to their ankles, then in a fit of pique ripped their underpants clean away from their waists to reveal their privates. And at the same time their game, Privates, is available to play, for free. Privates, you see, is a sort of pun. Puns are when a word can be confused for another word. So…

Orton Hears A Howl: Orton And The Princess

TheBlackBandit suggested we look at Flash game Orton And The Princess with the accompanying comment, "Your choice whether or not to post it." It turns out it's worth posting, and, well, even if it weren't I figured maybe he's being passive aggressive and if I don't he'll hurt me. It's a strange little game - very simple platform mechanic, except... except the game mocks you.

Lara From Above: Guardian Of Light Trailer

Only yesterday Jim and I were asking for more information about Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light, and pa-dah! A new trailer has appeared. And crikey, it isn't like the Tomb Raiders we've played before. Although we already knew it was an isometric action platformer, it's hard to believe it until you see it running, which you can below.

Exclusive: Getting Intimate With Privates

Upon hearing the news of Zombie Cow's pee-pee and hoo-hah themed game, Privates, we clearly wanted to know more. What are these "vaginas" and "penises" they're talking about? So we got ourselves a chat with project lead Dan Marshall to find out the details on their STI-busting project. We exclusively reveal what the game's about, how it will play, and what disgusting items lie in…

Wheelie Obvious Headline: Joe Danger Trailer

Kieron already thought of describing Joe Danger as Trials 2 meets Trackmania, and therefore I must be more original. It's a cross between Bergman's Nattvardsg√§sterna and a puma. Too original. It's a cartoony platform bike riding bounce fest that looks awesome fun. It's in this year's IGF running for the grand prize, and we should have an interview with creators Hello Games just as soon…

Your Morning Stupid: Find Eldorado

Or to give it its full name, Fuck Oregon Let's Go Find El Dorado. It's an entry to Ludum Dare, a bare-minimum side-scrolling pixel jobbie, and - in the loosest sense possible - inspired by Oregon Trail. Except this time you're jumping mountains. Using the physics that the young people are so excited by, you must reach El Dorado while preserving food, and indeed the…
