Sine On: Twinstick Shooter Waves² Enters Early Access

Waves is a splendid game. I first encountered it at the Eurogamer Expo back when I was an RPS baby, and its frantic twinstick shooting and shimmering screen of colours immediately coaxed me into a spaced-out bliss zone. Last year, one-person dev studio Rob Hale launched a Kickstarter to fund a sequel, Waves: Arena Tactics. That didn't work out quite as intended but Hale reckons…

Sparkling Sequel: Waves – Arena Tactics Hits Kickstarter

Gorgeous, punishing and rare, Waves was a top-down twin-stick shooter that did more with a single screen and five minute bursts of action than some first-person shooters do with world-spanning multi-million dollar campaigns. I first played it at the Eurogamer Expo and, upon remembering that I'm cack-handed when it comes to speedy action, I shrank away from the controller to save face. And then I…

Wave Hello To Waves: Arena Tactics

It's been almost two years since twin-stick shooter Waves was released, which means fans of its searing neon and frantic fighting are probably shivering and picking scabs from their eyeballs due to withdrawl symptoms.

I've not put anywhere near as much time as I'd have liked into Rob 'Squid in a Box' Hale's graceful-but-frantic twin-stick shooter Waves, which has built up quite a following in recent weeks - as well as snagging the coveted RPS 'best use of the Unreal engine' award at Indievisibility the other week. I did, however, discover the other day that it runs rather well…

Sined, Sealed, Delivered: Waves Released

UDK-powered twin-stick shooter Waves is now available for purchase. I played it at the Eurogamer Expo and had a grand old time even though I clearly need plenty of practice to even scrape the bottom of any kind of leaderboards. There are a variety of game modes, one of which you can try in the demo, and the colourful chaos is somehow balanced while unpredictable.…

Aw, It’s Twins(tick) Shooter: Waves Demo

Rob Hale's bemusingly frantic Waves has just released a demo. It's a three minute burst of the Crunch Time mode, which you can get from Squid In A Box's main site, here. The full game is out soon, and will be $10 either from Squid (DRM free) or via Steam. But in the meantime, you can finally get your hands on the explody colour confusion.

The Friday Indie Forecast

We've been inundated with news of forthcoming indie games over the past few months, and the trend looks set to continue. While we'll always try to link to the best of them - and especially those which are released and have demos - I want to be a bit more systematic about previewing a few of the titles we see each week. I'll be doing…
