Diaries Of A Spaceport Janitor Looks Delightful

What is Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor [official site? Not entirely sure. Don’t really care. Some kind of wander-o-read-a-clean ‘em in a bustling spaceport? Dunno. The point is, Sundae Month’s game looks delightful! We may not get to play it until spring, but for now I’m enjoying a whole load of lovely moving pictures.

Ride The Post-Apocalyptic Rails In The Final Station

Society is falling apart as zombies rise and- no, wait, don’t scroll past: The Final Station [official site] is interesting!

Twitch Played Punch Club And Got A Girlfriend

First Twitch mastered Pokemon. Then Twitch mastered Halo. Then Twitch played and eventually (sort-of) mastered Dark Souls.

When It’s Time To Murder We Will Always: Party Hard

Andrew WK on the decks.

It’s the middle of your night and your neighbours won’t stop partying, so what do you do? Me, I turn up at their door with a bottle of whisky in hand and a traffic cone on my head, yelling “Wahey!” The chap in Party Hard [official site]? He murders them all, one by one, one way or another in slasher-style antics, while trying not to get caught.

I meant to post about the top-down, arcade-y stealth murder game when it came out last month, then forgot, then again, then forgot again, so now… have a post to, er, note the release of Mac and Linux versions ten days ago? Sure.
