Front Bottoms: Zombie Cow’s Privates


Would you like to see Zombie Cow’s Privates? We sure would. We’d not only like to see them, but we’d like to play with them once we have. But no! We’re not talking about their penises! We’re talking about their new winky-themed game, Privates! (NB. We’re talking about their penises.)

Our Boys On The News! BBC On Indies

This caption applies to every story I use it for.

Aw, I feel so proud. It’s like seeing your own children in the papers, but without their having had to stab someone to get there. For winning a really tough swimming race or something. Because today on the real actual Queen’s official BBC News is a story about Mr Cliff Harris and Mr Dan Marshall. That’s Cliffski and Dan Off Of Time Gentlemen Please to you and me. It’s a story about the “return of the bedroom coder”, focusing on Positech and Zombie Cow as examples of British independent developers, and explaining that they can be successful in the larger world of gaming. Cliffski and Dan! We know them! They’re on the news!

Universal Exclusive: New Zombie Cow Game Details

Party time! Improvise balloons!

Anyone who has played Ben There, Dan That! and Time Gentlemen, Please! will know why to be excited to hear there’s to be more from the mad-walking heroes of time travelling point and click adventures. From an outside glance they’re 2D scratchy indie games made in the AGS engine, but then you need to sit up and take notice when you realise the second game, TGP, has a Metascore of 89 (five reviews listed, but many other 9/10s should be added). We officially liked it a lot. Why this very day Zombie Cow got in touch with us to let us know that after meetings and alcohol, they’ve decided to continue the series, this time episodically.

Wot I Think: Time Gentlemen, Please

admire my drop-shadow

This indie Britisher adventure game has been available for a couple of weeks now, for a piddling £2.99/$5. You may have heard of its precessor, the free Ben There, Dan That. But how does it compare to professional point’n’clickery of both yesterday and today? My judgement awaits…

Carrion Reanimating! (Ouch)

Jon Blyth, everyone!

You know what there aren’t enough of? Black and white games. A few exist, but it’s a format I’d love to see someone do with a big budget. However, in the meantime, this little splodge of oddness will do. Carrion Reanimating (oof) is a small arcade game in which you must reanimate corpses of locals you have murdered in order that their visiting friends and relatives won’t be concerned. Of course.
