Yogscast offering replacement game for those who backed Yogventures Kickstarter

There’s not much the Yogscast could likely do that’s going to make backers of the Yogventures Kickstarter happy. Developer Winterkewl Games is  going out of business, and a game that raised $567,665 isn’t happening now. In an effort to get something to an angry crowd of backers, the Yogscast is working with Nerd Kingdom to more »

Title: Whispering Willow Price: $14.99 System(s): PC (Also on Ouya) Release Date: July 9, 2014 Publisher (Developer): Night Light Interactive (Night Light Interactive) ESRB Rating: N/A, but I think it’d be appropriate for players ages 13 and up.

Video Game Critic Simulator is good for a few laughs

My parents raised me to realize that sometimes you really need to just laugh at yourself. Sometimes making others happy at your expense is as good for you as it is for them. There’s a reason I always say “Hump Day!” at least once every Wednesday. I don’t care if people laugh at me, at more »

Black The Fall Preview: Shadowy men on a shadowy planet

Black The Fall is a forthcoming black and white game where players wander a ruined landscape populated by sadistic machinery and zombies. In spite of being a 2D side scroller Black The Fall isn’t a platformer, but a kind of survival horror game with some light puzzle elements. The game doesn’t provide you with speed more »

Yogventures! Kickstarter is a debacle

It’s always a shame when a Kickstarter goes bad. Case in point, the Yogscast’s Yogventures! game. 13,647 backers pledged $567,665 between April and May, 2012, in the hopes of getting a full game from Winterkewl Games by December 2012. Well, it’s now July 2014, and there’s still no game. It’s easy to see why people more »

Evo 2014: Mango wins Smash Bros. Melee championship under Reggie’s watchful eye

Nintendo almost made a huge PR blunder at 2013′s Evo by trying to end not just the stream of Super Smash Bros. Melee, but the tournament itself. Somebody explained to them that free promotion for your products is a good thing. This year was a complete reversal, as Nintendo not only encouraged the event but sponsored more »

Hand of Fate Preview: A RPG and cards combo

I love card games. From the simplest ones, like Go Fish, to Sequence, to collector cards like Yu-Gi-Oh!, I have always enjoyed them. They’re great to play with other people, or if you’re a loner you can always play good, ol’ reliable Solitaire. Well, Defiant Development’s new game, Hand of Fate, takes a love of more »

Distance: When Space Cowgirls Get The Blues

Distance plays like a deleted scene from Kentucky Route Zero, a student film Conway and his companions would stumble across that would do absolutely nothing to elucidate their situation or get them closer to their goal, but would lend a dash of enigmatic color to their world. Distance‘s brevity makes it feel like an interlude more »

Screenshot fun with Backstage Pass

A few weeks ago, I did a preview for Sakevisual’s Backstage Pass. (Which happens to be on Steam’s Early Access, hint hint.) The first playthrough didn’t go so well for me, as Sian ended up alone forever. Which naturally meant going through the game a few more times for a better result. In so doing, more »

Internal Invasion Review: All the small things

Internal Invasion Price: $4.49 System(s): Wii U Release Date: July 3, 2014 Publisher (Developer): Bear Box Media (Andy Ford) ESRB Rating: “Everyone” Everyone is getting down with the sickness.

I’ll buy a PS4 for RIME, Witness, and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture

I am a huge fan of indie games. I love supporting the “little guy”, so to speak. This adoration has led me to a tough decision. I didn’t have any plans to buy a “next generation” console any time soon, but this year’s indie offerings might make me change my mind. While everyone’s heard of more »

Read this Twitter exchange to fall in love with Lab Zero Games

Looking for a developer to throw money at? I have one right here – Lab Zero Games. They’re the creators of Skullgirls, and the team has a very special connection with fans. Namely, that they listen to and respond to them. More than that, they treat everyone, even pirates, kindly. Just check out this Twitter more »
