Wot I Think: The Final Station

I hate ladders, ladders are my enemy. The world is coming to an end; I am driving a temperamental train to one forsaken town after another; I am rescuing survivors and then mopping up their remains when they expire in my carriage; and I am hunting for the tools to advance amid derelict buildings full of zombie-like silhouette monsters. But it’s the ladders in The Final Station that provide the largest obstacle.

Game Key Reseller G2A Offers Royalties To Developers

Both sides exchanged demands, and today G2A seems to have pulled back on their stance and is now rolling out a program that will, in part, offer developers and publishers up to 10 percent royalties on each sale of their game.

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.

Bullet Heaven: Lovely Planet Arcade Announced

Lovely Planet was… lovely. Colourful, cute and springy, it looks like a jolly little thing and it is, to an extent. It’s a tricky thing though, a hardcore shooter in a candy shell. Publishers tinyBuild Games have just announced that a sequel is in the works. Lovely Planet Arcade [official site] is the name.
