Lurid rooftop rampage High Hell is out now

High Hell is a game that just screams Devolver. While the indie publisher may not produce much directly, they have curated a house style that is unmistakable.

Six Shots: Heavy Bullets Is A Roguelike-like FPS

The revolver's an ideal weapon for a roguelike-like: high damage, low capacity, slow to reload, and awfully cool. Three attributes that make it dovetail nicely with the caution, conservation, and permadeath one expects from the genre, plus a little radness as a treat.
