Atomicrops sprouts out of Epic exclusivity next week

It's tough work, farming through a nuclear winter. Tough enough that Atomicrops is now recruiting farmhands from beyond the confines of the Epic Games Store. Only a few months after release, publishers Raw Fury this week announced that their carrot-plucking twin-stick shooter is heading to Steam and GOG later this month - bringing a bounty of irradiated new content with it.

Feature: BREAK the cycle

Star Renegades review

There is a lot happening in Star Renegades. For a seemingly small game it throws an absurd amount of idea clay into the RPG kiln. What comes out of that fire is an impressive, if unwieldy, mosaic pot. You can easily spot pieces of other games. Into The Breach’s do-over storytelling, Grandia-esque timeline battles, a whiff of Shadow Of Mordor’s nemeses, and not-quite-Persona levels of…

Robo-smashing roguelite Star Renegades is out now

Listen. Just because we've got a multiversal authoritarian state to demolish doesn't mean we can't take a few moments to enjoy the scenery. Released today, Star Renegades is a bloody stunning tactical roguelite RPG about smashing robots, dodging rivals, and catching some sweet sunsets at the end of the universe again, and again, and again.

Bad North, Night Call and Kingdom Two Crowns headline the latest Humble Bundle

It seems there's just no stopping the Humble Bundle train at the moment, as yep, you guessed it, they've only gone and made another gosh darned game bundle. This time, it's pillaged the back catalogue of publisher Raw Fury, the folks behind tiny Viking 'em up Bad North, monochrome taxi murder mystery Night Call and the side-scrolling strategy series Kingdom, all of which and more…

Sable’s lonely jetbikes have been delayed into 2021

There are few games I'm excited for more than Shedwork's gorgeous sand-speeder Sable, which is why it stings to report that it's once again been pushed back a year. First due in 2019, then 2020, the lonely Mobius-inspired desert romp will now (hopefully) release in 2021. As consolation, here are 30 more seconds of the upcoming comic-book adventure to gawk at longingly, courtesy of a…

West Of Dead is a twin-stick cover shooter, with cowboy Ron Perlman

I watched some footage of West Of Dead in action... this week? Last week? Who can remember these things. And it occurred to me that I've somehow never seen a twin-stick cover shooter until now.In case that's not enough to pique your interest, you play as an undead cowboy Ron Perlman. It looks bloody good, and it's out now.

Gonner2 announced, sequel to a cracking shooty platformer

Splendid shoot-o-platformer Gonner will return later this year with a sequel, imaginatively titled Gonner2. Look, you don't need a fancy name when you have a giant monster made of giant eyes and teeth connected by jiggly tendons. Gonner was a good'un so yes, please, more. See the announcement trailer below.

Feature: Tough taters

Atomicrops review

Atomicrops is not your granpappy’s pixel art farming sim. It’s not a farming sim at all, really, but more a twin stick bullet-hell-and-tarnation with some very light nods to life-sim elements through upgrades. It’s also moreish, dizzyingly vibrant, and full of more squirming veggies than when you threw up that carrot cake your mum tried to make look like a regular birthday cake by dumping…

Call Of The Sea is a period mystery on a distant island, with fishmen

Don't talk to me about the call of the sea. I've been stuck on land for six weeks now, separated from my beautiful wet wife by the lockdown, and you dare act like the call of the sea is just a game? I oughta t- hang on. Oh. I see. You mean Call Of The Sea, the video game announced today. Ah. Look pal, I…

Nuclear farmer Atomicrops leaves early access next month

I might only have briefly dabbled in farm work while travelling, but Atomicrops sure ain't how I remember it. I remember wellies and mud, yeah, but mutants? Shotguns? Seems suspect. With the turning of the seasons, Bird Bath Games' farm-person-shooter is ready to bring home the harvest, as Atomicrops prepares to leave early access on May 28th.

You know the drill by now - from today until next Thursday, World War Z, Tormentor X Punisher and Figment are free to keep forever over on Epic. Once Thursday rolls by, it's back to full price they go, replaced in kind by Gone Home…

Feature: A wild night out

Have You Played… Night Call?

Santa Claus got into my taxi last night. Not some bloke dressed up as Santa. The Santa. With the reindeer and the sleigh and the presents. I wasn't even aware it was Christmas Eve when my gruff taxi driver rolled out of bed that day, but there he was, his large hat slung over a tired, booze-addled eyelid and his beard all messy around the…

Indie developers affected by GDC postponement invited to apply for relief fund

Last Friday, after multiple large publishers cancelled their appearances at the event, the yearly Game Developers Conference was postponed. Originally scheduled for March 16-20 in San Francisco, the conference has been postponed to "later in the summer" due to concerns about potential spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. GDC say they will refund the cost of passes to the conference to attendees but tickets to the event…

Undead gunslinger West Of Dead wrangles up a PC beta next week

West Of Dead, a pistol-whipping twin-stick announced at XO19 last November, is celebrating the loveliest holiday with its first PC open beta. Starting February 14th, developers Upstream Arcade are kicking open the gates of Purgatory, Wyoming for a ten-day trip into West Of Dead's corpse-filled caves - no roses required.

Flippin’ good platformer Dandara expands with Trials of Fear

Motion sickness warning ahead. Dandara's disorienting world is about to get dizzier. Developers Long Hat House this week announced a new Trials of Fear Edition. Arriving "soon", the new edition bulks out Dandara's upside-down metroidvania sprawl, adding new regions, new bosses, and a revitalised story to give more gravitas to your gravity-defying antics. Just remember to take deep breaths and make sure you're drinking enough…

West Of Dead is a damned twin-stick western starring Ron Perlman

Even Purgatory needs cops, apparently. West Of Dead, a tense twin-stick shooter about keeping the dead where they belong, was announced at last night's XO19 show, and it looks a right stunner. Hellboy (the good one) himself Ron Perlman lends his gravel-filled throat to a protagonist who's part supernatural sheriff and part Marvel's Ghost Rider. Y'see, sometimes the dead just don't stay dead, end up…

Mosaic brings maximum discomfort on PC next month

As much as I might like winter, it's hell for commuting. The buses are crowded, the darkness has sapped the colour from the air. Each day feels like it begins after the journey out and ends before the trip back home. The perfect time, then, for Krillbite Studios to release Mosaic - their eerie corporate follow-up to 2015's Among The Sleep. After a four year…
