Stoke the atomic fires of love in free romantic build ’em up Kaiju Super Datetech

Make love, not war, or at least repurpose the wreckage of failed mech-war into a charmingly smoochable partner for a lonely rampaging monster. Kaiju Super Datetech is a cute little free game from Powerhoof (makers of Regular Human Basketball and arcade hack n' slasher Crawl) for up to four local players plus party pals, working together or in teams to build NotGodzilla a date. Players…

Regular Human Basketball whirrs out

Ahh basketball, noblest of sports. Is there a more blessed sight than that of a regular human rocketing through the air? A more magnificent act than the perfectly timed activation of a magnet, a more majestic occurrence than a player toppling to the ground atop their retractable legs? There is not. The expanded Steam version of Regular Human Basketball just came out, and offers some…

Have You Played… Regular Human Basketball?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Regular Human Basketball is totally a game about normal humans shooting some hoops in an authentic bout of bipedal basketball. What’s that? You’re saying those are actually giant mechs equipped with jetpacks, magnets and retractable legs? No Sir, not here. Nuh uh.

1v3 dungeon crawler Crawl crawls out in April

Ace local multiplayer dungeon crawler Crawl [official site] will leave early access after two-and-a-half years to properly launch on April 11th, developers Powerhoof have announced. Crawl is a roguelikelike dungeon-crawling action-RPG, see, with one player as an adventurer and three player controlling the monsters and traps. It's cooperative/competitive local multiplayer, or compoerative as we definitely do say in The Business. I've not played it in…

Crawl Gets Diddy Dune Worms

Crawl [official site], I think it's worth saying, gets the much lauded Gera Prize For Good Characters And Stuff. This is the game that produced the most eerily realistic albeit 2D cartoon rendering of Gabe Newell of all time. And now a nice and hefty update has come its way, bringing with it baddies of a more Dune-Meets-Ancient Greece variety. Or alternatively, Beetlejuice-Meets-Xena, or a…

Mecha Sports: Regular Human Basketball Out For Free

Basketball is played by giant robots, right? I must confess the sport is something of a blind spot for me, being raised in Blighty, so I'll trust entirely in Crawl developers Powerhoof and their free video game adaptation Regular Human Basketball [official site], which is out now. Basketball, I have learned from playing, is a local multiplayer sport for 2-10 players who scamper around inside…

Gabe Newell Now Stomping And Stabbing All Over Crawl

Oh yes, yes, Gabe Newell's in Crawl [official site] now but mercy me the Internet's obsession with him doesn't need any more stoking. Besides, the latest patch for on 3v1 compoerative (I coined that term, you can't steal it) dungeon crawler's journey through Steam Early Access also added a new Mini Beam Eye Bat evolution. Eye Bats! Boo! All the kids are in on hot…

Crawl Turns Gabe Newell Into The Enemy Boss From Hell

There's the Mona Lisa and there's the Venus de Milo, and then there's this beauty. The kindly Australians of indie outfit Powerhoof have turned Valve's very own high priest Gabe Newell into an enemy boss for their asymmetrical dungeon crawler Crawl [official site]. Take a look at this thing, in all the technicolour glory of an animated gif.

Multiplayer Roguelikelike Crawl Unleashes Co-op Hydra

It's a while since we covered the multiplayer roguelikelike Crawl but we're no less enticed by the concept today. It's still in Early Access but released its v0.3 update on Thursday. In case, like me, your brain entered a dungeon last year and never came back, here's a refresher: in Crawl you and one to three friends take turns controlling A Hero and do exploring, fighting, looting and…

Slowing To A: Crawl Delay Announced With The Greatest GIF

I'm really looking forward to Crawl. The concept - a dungeon crawler where your friends control the monsters - is as brilliant as it is elegantly simple, and it's got oodles (or blob monsters, as it were) of style to back it up. Last we heard, it was gonna hit Steam Early Access in a week, but then The Beast, The Dragon, The Creature That…

Crawl Is A Multiplayer Dungeon Brawler With A Brill Trailer

This is how you send your game out into the public sphere. From the Crawl Steam Greenlight page, I can tell you that it's a "competitive multiplayer dungeon crawler where your friends control the monsters." From its detailed three-minute trailer, embedded below, I can tell you that it has beautifully animated pixel art, fast hack-and-slash combat, and lots of hot pink fonts. Crawl is about…

Beat The Dungeon And Be The Dungeon In Crawl

Dungeons are dark and full of perils. From the giant rats of yesteryear to the hyper-detailed, mega-map-o-textured giant rats of today, there's always something out for delicious adventurer blood. That, of course, is the precise reason humanity evolved the concept of friendship - as a defense mechanism in videogame dungeons. Biology, huh? It's an incredible thing. But then along slithers Crawl. It's a roguelike dungeon-delver…
