Where The Water Tastes Like Wine adds new stories and autowalk

Story-collecting stroll 'em up Where The Water Tastes Like Wine has added more strange, delightful, and terrible tales to hear in a free update. Our dearly-departed Adam praised the original game's Americana stories, written by a wide team of writers, in his Where The Water Tastes Like Wine review and more are certainly welcome.

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine review

In Where the Water Tastes Like Wine, stories are currency. You walk the backroads and fields of the United States during the Great Depression, occasionally freighthopping or hitching a ride from one town to the next.

Where the Water Tastes Like Wine writer lineup revealed

I do like a nice bit of Americana so I'm quite keen for Where the Water Tastes Like Wine [official site] to arrive later this year.

Pixel Galaxy Proves It’s Hip To Be Square, Is Out Now

Put simply, Pixel Galaxy [official site] is a bullet hell shmup. It's also a frenetic explosion of luminous, hedonistic chaos.
