I get angry. I get angry for a number of reasons, but a few times a year I get angry because video games aren’t as funny as I wish they were. Especially the games that are really Trying Hard to be funny. So, when I encounter a genuinely funny title, it makes me happy to recommend it. Obviously, there’s not a formula that always works.

Yahtzee’s Rabid Rabbits: Poacher

Ayup

It’s been a good while since Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw released a game of his own, although he’s hardly been idle in that time, with Zero Punctuation and other projects continuing to devour his time. Now, through the magic of moving images, his newest game has been revealed to the world. It’s called Poacher and its star is a stoical Yorkshireman (tautology intended) who finds himself caught in a battle between giant faces and killer bunnies. That’s what I reckon anyway. Take a look for yourself.
