Charlie Murder, The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile hit PC

Salt and Sanctuary creators Ska Studios have finally brought two of their earlier games to PC, the stabby platformer The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile [official site] and beat 'em up Charlie Murder [official site]. In the traditional Ska way, they've got sketchy art, co-op, buckets of moodiness, and shedloads of blood. Vampire Smile hit Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Arcade in 2011 then Charlie Murder followed…

2D Dark Souls: Salt And Sanctuary Arrives On PC

I realise that Dark Souls comparisons are now overused to the point of near-meaninglessness but Salt and Sanctuary [official site] is, like, really Dark Souls-y. It's a hand-drawn 2D side-on platformer, sure, but does so many Souls-y things from all its parrying and rolling down to needing to go reclaim your souls salt after you die. From what I've heard, it sounds great? Following its…

2D Souls-y Stab-o-Platforming: Salt & Sanctuary

We skipped over Salt & Sanctuary when it was announced at a PlayStation event last year, but now I've seen a swish video demonstrating its 2D take on Dark Souls-y monster-mashing, I've gone back and noticed oh! It's coming to PC too! That's welcome news, as it seems to smoosh Souls ideas of careful combat, risk management, and needing to pay attention oh no that's…

After Bizarre Piracy Snafu, Vampire Smile Heads To PC

I'm not sure why anyone would name their stylishly gore-spattered, guitar-fueled beat-'em-up The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile, but I assume it involved refrigerator magnets and the world's smartest catapult. Sadly, the 2011 XBLA brawler never made it to PC, and the skies wept crocodiles which then wept crocodile tears. Oh, and so did a Russian developer named Barabus. So naturally, he decided to crack the Xbox…
