Twinfinite EP: Spate OST Review – A Slow Burn

[Occassionally Twinfinite's Endless Playlist gets a new album to review. This week it's the Spate OST composed by Mike Raznick] I wrote in my original review that the music relied mostly on orchestral strings and haunting vocals to complete the dark atmosphere of Spate and having gotten a chance to listen to the full album, I realize I was only scratching at the surface of an iceberg. While the majority of the album rarely deviates from the string ensemble, the [...]

Take a Few Balls to the Face in Lethal League

If you were to throw a Stephen Chow movie, baseball, a 16-bit fighting game, and some Wu-Tang-esque beats into a blender, you’d probably make Lethal League. Dutch developer Reptile Games did exactly that and are bringing this one of a kind “projectile based” fighting game. What it essentially boils down to is your character facing off against either a friend or the computer and whacking a giant ball at each other to do damage. The game allows up to four [...]

 

Star Citizen Gameplay Footage, Now in HD!

I’ve been following the development of Star Citizen for a while now. Last I’d checked, the entirely crowdfunded PC space-sim had raised around $40 million. In a little over a month, another $2 million has been contributed to the ambitious project. But what’s even more exciting is the recent gameplay footage. Chris Roberts and his team (Roberts Space Industries) were at PAX East a few weeks ago to reveal the game’s dogfighting module. And holy shit is it gorgeous. In [...]

Meridian: New World Preview – Bored Already

I haven’t really played an RTS in quite some time, so getting a chance to look at a new up-and-comer was a pleasing prospect. Having loved Command and Conquer, Starcraft, Warcraft, and others like the oldie Ground Control I was excited to look at this game developed by a single person over the course of years. The subsequent disappointment was pretty crushing.

 

Indie Games, Mainstream? Golden Girls vs Capcom? – Twinfinite Discusses

We’re back with another Twinfinite Discusses! While Alex and Austin still haven’t returned from their honeymoon, Muaz joined Andy and I once again to talk about the topics and questions you sent us in. Here’s an episode on whether indie games will ever truly be mainstream, what kind of gaming hybrid filled with different game mechanics we’d love to make together, and which TV shows would make fantastic video games.

Life Goes On Review – The Adventures of Sir Lives-A-Lot

The platformer is one of video gaming’s most enduring genres, covering a wide range of themes, visual styles, and difficulty levels. In general, the best games this genre has to offer tend to be extremely challenging, leading to many deaths on the part of the player. With modern platformers, the real challenge developers face is preserving that sense of brutal difficulty while preventing the player from simply giving up in frustration. Developer Infinite Monkeys has devised a clever solution to [...]

Viscera Cleanup Detail Review – Cleanup on Aisle Gore

For the past couple of years, my wife and I had a side-job cleaning a condominium complex. It was basically easy money for little more than a couple of hours of work each week, so it helped pay the bills. Doing that kind of work teaches you a lot about human nature, and the two things I learned from doing this job are: 1. If you are any kind of cleaner, people assume you cannot speak English. 2. People are [...]

REalM is an Indie Horror Game And First Game On The Square Enix Collective

I’m of the mind that fear isn’t based off of any pre-determined trigger. Sure, clowns are universally scary, but nightmares are all deeply personal, and there is a special curiosity with getting close to that which terrifies you most. Those were just thoughts in my head as I was looking at REalM, an indie horror platformer from developers Arbor Sheep and Authentic Illusions. You see, graphics are all fine and well, but the games that interest me the most are [...]

Omocat Launches Omori Kickstarter

One of my favorite artist, Omocat, has been lining up a Kickstarter campaign for her game for quite some time. Today, on Twitter, the Kickstarter for Omori has been posted. While the campaign video reveals a surreal music video showcasing the game and story elements, the summary itself reads something like a cross between cult favorite titles Yume Nikki and Earthbound while music is handled by indie Chip rock band Slime Girls (Who I saw live last year open for Anamanguchi).
