Wheels Of Aurelia review

A driving game about conversations. It sounds perfect, like the hitchhiker American Truck Simulator mod that I wish somebody would make. When Graham wrote about Wheels of Aurelia [official site] late last year, I added it to the long list of games that I absolutely had to play. I hoped that I'd be able to see past the elements that he criticised, but now that I've…

Wheels Of Aurelia Is A Narrative Driving Game

Everything that's interesting about Wheels of Aurelia [official site] sounds brilliant. It's a "narrative driving" game in which you steer a sports car down the coast of Italy in the 1970s, while simultaneously steering the game's punkish lead Lella in conversation with her passengers. I've been playing its beta.

Da Doo Run Run: Fotonica On Steam With Splitscreen

As much as I might wish, I do not improve at Fotonica. I've tried the first-person auto-runner many times in its various incarnations over the years, and never found the beautiful flow and elegance that I've seen in other people as I watch over their shoulder. It is tricky and it is pretty and it is now on Steam as what developers Santa Ragione call…

For A Song: MirrorMoon EP Expands, On Sale

To coincide with a week-long Steam sale, the enigmatic MirrorMoon EP has expanded its repertoire of planetary structures, adding objects that pay homage to various games, including Kentucky Route Zero and Gone Home. It's entirely possible that I made a huge mistake when I allowed this one to slip off the frighteningly extensive list of games that I intend to play. I did noodle around…

Fly Me To The: MirrorMoon Is Smart, Mysterious, In Beta

Developer Santa Ragione has traded pseudo-Mirror's-Edge-ish psychedelic sprints for meandering, contemplative exploration, and the result looks positively haunting in the best way possible. MirrorMoon EP (which John saw a bit of during GDC's Experimental Gameplay Workshop) is a game about the intrigues of planetary exploration, a stark galaxy pregnant with secrets. MirrorMoon spans thousands of star systems, each with their own puzzles, artifacts, and sleeping…

Pay What You Want For Fotonica Download

In January this year (yes, I actually checked before posting about something) Alec brought us news of Fotonica - a first-person free running game that was played via Unity in a browser. Some things have changed since then, and the game is now downloadable for Mac or Windows, playable in full screen, along with a 'pay what you want' offer if you'd like to give…

No Mirrors, Lots of Edges: Fotonica

It is important that you play this. It's free, so you've got no excuse. Not even that you're colourblind or deaf, because it's designed to be playable regardless of colour or audio cues. Fotonica is loosely an auto-running game, in the vein of Canabalt or Robot Unicorn Attack, but with tasty dollops of Mirror's Edge and Rez mixed in to create something hallucinatory, abstract and…
