The Technomancer Trailer – Better Or Worse Than The Idea Of A Calculon Game?

There's a new trailer out for The Technomancer [official site]. So far I had avoided Technomancer news and was kind of holding out for it to be a portmanteau of "technology" AND "ROMANCER". Maybe there would be a robot who was using its robot powers to find love. I think I was imagining Futurama's Calculon starring in a videogame of All My Circuits. I have…

Bright Lights, Big Cities: Skylines – After Dark

Somehow I ended up thinking Cities: Skylines - After Dark [official site] would be a scuzzy, sleazy, neon affair. I was expecting a rain-soaked trailer with buzzing lights advertising GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS or CHAPS CHAPS CHAPS or something and soundtracked by Electric 6. Maybe Devil Nights off Senor Smoke. It isn't. There are streetlights and windowlit office blocks and the soundtrack is perky and plinky…

Gather Round For This Gorgeous Amphora Trailer

Moondrop have released a trailer for their puzzle game Amphora and it's stunning. I was going to say it was the most beautiful thing I'd seen all day except that during the course of writing this article I watched Alfonso Ribeiro finally doing the Carlton Dance on Dancing With The Stars. So! Amphora is a puzzle game which is coming out in November. The art…

Planet Express: Space Run Delivers Mobile Tower Defense

When I saw the trailer for Space Run last week, I immediately opened up an IM window and sent it to a few friends. Then, satisfied with having shared the strategic space ship construction game, I felt the sense of closure I normally get from posting things here and wiped it from my memory. That's why it's only now while cleaning my inbox that I…

Crawl Is A Multiplayer Dungeon Brawler With A Brill Trailer

This is how you send your game out into the public sphere. From the Crawl Steam Greenlight page, I can tell you that it's a "competitive multiplayer dungeon crawler where your friends control the monsters." From its detailed three-minute trailer, embedded below, I can tell you that it has beautifully animated pixel art, fast hack-and-slash combat, and lots of hot pink fonts. Crawl is about…

The Only Winning Move: Wargame: Red Dragon Trailer

I showed the last Wargame: Red Dragon trailer to a friend who is knowledgeable about games. As it drew to a close they turned to me and asked, "What kind of game is this?" It's a large-scale real-time strategy game with a dynamic campaign map, multiplayer, hundreds of modernish military units, and taut tactical combat, but I don't know if it's a good thing or…

Behind The Back To The Future

Telltale really does have a gift for picking up licenses people are craving for. Sam & Max, Monkey Island, and now Back To The Future. And they're not going in alone. As the making of videos below show, they've got co-creator Bob Gale involved with the project. And as we've seen before, Christopher Lloyd is on board to provide his all important voice. Michael J…

Ibiza Uncovered: Test Drive Unlimited 2

News of Test Drive Unlimited 2 has caught me by surprise, despite its having been announced in March. I'm so good at my job. The original, released on PC in 2007, was an unfairly overlooked driving game set on the Hawaiian island Oʻahu, with 1,000 miles of roads to race about on. What made it so interesting was the population of this island: other players.…

Prince Of Persia Gets All Arty

How to while away the last few minutes of my birthday, before the Phillies begin game 5, and their inevitable triumphant victory in the World Series? Why, with Prince of Persia videos, of course. The first (below) features a really rather pleasant arty story-piece, discussing the battle between light and dark, all esoteric and confusing. The second has three members of the development team discussing…
