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 [...]

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). [...]

Trial of Trails, the Free RPG You Bikeride Through

Over the past decade or so, fitness has really picked up as a strong factor in video game development, revolutionizing the way we play some games today, such as Dance Dance Revolution, Wii Boxing, Kinect Sports, and many more. Maybe you’re just not into any of those though. Maybe you want something more fantastical. Maybe you want something like Trial of Trails, the RPG you play with a stationary bike. It’s as odd as it is intriguing. Trial of Trails [...]

Zoe Quinn’s Follow Up to Depression Quest Is A FMV Game

FMV = Full Motion Video. It was probably the most gloriously awful idea in the history of game development. In a world where we could not render elaborate structures or characters, we simply shoved actors in front of cameras and ordered them to move around in hilariously awkward live action scenes that were degrading for everyone involved and horrible to play. They were, obviously, the best things ever. Fox Hunt is probably one of my favorite bad games of all time, and [...]

Game Music Bundle Features Broken Age, Journey, And Chance To Win Bundle Key

One of my favorite bundles around is the Game Music Bundle which consistently delivers some of the best soundtracks around. This time, Game Music Bundle is back with its 7th iteration offering diverse albums currently available. As always the available albums are separated by payment tiers, so the more you pay the more albums you get. For $1 you unlock albums for games such as Luftrausers and Double Fine’s Broken Age along with a few others. For $10 you get [...]

 

Thirty Minutes of Chroma Squad Gameplay For Your Eyeballs

Unless you’re able to be in more than one place at a time, chances are you missed some stuff at PAX East. Hell, I know I missed a ton of stuff, and one of them was regretfully the sentai inspired Chroma Squad, from Behold Studios. Luckily, Behold was nice enough to post the entire 30-minute demo on their YouTube channel. Chroma Squad is a homage to Japanese sentai television shows — e.g., Power Rangers. In the game players will be creating their own sentai television [...]

JetGetters Kickstarter Gets Funded, Then Cancelled

Let’s get the bad news out of the way. JetGetters Kickstarter is cancelled. Don’t be sad though. The developers pulled the funding because they’ve been picked up by a publisher. The tiny studio at Tiny Build Games went to inform their backers that everyone who did donate are going to get their money back, and they are going to receive the Kickstarter rewards up to the $51 tier. Jetgetters is this crazy grappling hook shooter that just looks like mad [...]

 

Life Goes On Gets a Launch Trailer, Proves Life Really Goes On

Life Goes On released today on Steam and to celebrate, we got a nice little launch trailer showcasing the many deaths. When I first heard that Life Goes On featured a lot of dying, I thought it was due to difficulty, a la Super  Meat Boy. However, I see now that the deaths are caused by the necessity of it all. You need to die in some levels in order to use that corpse to get through an obstacle. Genius. You [...]
