All Klei Games Free To Play On Steam This Weekend

If you haven't been paying attention to Klei Entertainment's creations for the past few years, you're missing out on some of the best games in the world. This year's Invisible, Inc. [official site], recently expanded in fine style, might be the best turn-based game I've discovered since I joined the Chess Club all those years ago, and Mark of the Ninja is a completely different…

Feature: "big guys vs little guys"

Interview: Klei’s Anderson Talks Upside Of EA’s “Indies”

Earlier this week, EA launched an indie bundle. Not-so-coincidentally, the Internet proceeded to explode, and I'm now typing this while holding a tin can with a piece of string attached next to my PC. I even said some things about it, though admittedly, mostly to kick off a discussion about an only partially related topic. However, off the back of that, I ended up getting…

Next Humble Bundle Leaks, Is A Goodun

Details of the next Humble Indie Bundle have once more leaked, because Steam's Content Description Record Viewer Thingamie is so ludicrously easy for people to spy. And it looks like it's going to be a bit of a corker, as spotted by DIY Gamer. In the pay-what-you-want collection it seems there will be Super Meat Boy, BIT.TRIP.RUNNER, Jamestown, Nightsky and Shank. That's the first wave,…

Fabulous Muscles: Shank Demo

Have you tried comic book-looking platformer/manfighter Shank? It came out on Steam last week, boasting a demo and a beefy £10 pricetag. Maybe £10 sounds like a lot, but then maybe you didn't know that Shank is a game where guns, knives and your chainsaw are simply three different buttons, and protagonist Shank juggles them all like a flair bartender. I didn't get along much…

DeathSpank Coming To PC, Along With Shank

It's always disappointing when those who have made their careers making PC games announce their next project is to be console only. Dirty turncoats like Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert, who'd be nothing - NOTHING - without the PC have betrayed us in a very real way, for which there can be no forgiveness. Only hate. Unless they then release their game on PC. Schafer's…

Shank Deffo On PC, Picked Up By EA Partners

Speedypost: Shank, the really very splendid-looking 2D action platformer that's currently in the running for the Visual Art Excellence award at the IGF, has been confirmed as coming out on PC as well as PSN and XBLA. There'd been doubts before, so hip hip hooray - all three, with EA Partners doing the publishing. Which is rather splendid news. I know this because IndieGames tells…

IGF Factor 2010: Shank

You were excited when John brought this up last week. As is only right. Shank is one of the most visceral games in this year's IGF, and picked up a nomination for Visual Excellence for its efforts. We took time to talk to Jamie Cheng of Klei to find out about the origins of this love-letter to the idea of classic brawlers.

Kick, Punch, Chainsaw: Shank

My chosen fighting style is an insane combination of guns, knives and chainsaws, all used simultaneously in a mad, clattering rush. And finally there's a game that represents this for me. Shank, from the creators of Eets, Klei Entertainment, is up for the Excellence In Visual Arts award at this year's IGF, and from the look of the trailer below it's going to be ace.…

Knife To A Gunfight: Shank

It was PAX last week. And no, we weren't out there, because by an unfortunate coincidence the RPS personal helicopter was in the shop having its napalm missiles upgraded, hence we had no way to reach Seattle. What we could do, at least, is Observe From Afar, like sinister gaming perverts. We're good at the watching-but-not-doing thing. For instance, here's a fairly undocumented wee game…
