Bedlam: Hands-on

Sep 19, 2014

Playing games within games may sound a little too Inception-like for some, but in the case of Bedlam it’s more like a playable history of FPS games. And with lessons to learn like rocket jumping, health bars and gunning down waves of cyborgs, what’s not to like? If the title sounds familiar, you might know of the book of the same title written by British...

Band Saga Kickstarter Needs Help to Hit the Road

Sep 17, 2014

Band Saga; you’d easily be able to forgive yourself for assuming that tis a Kickstarter for a chiptune album but that’s actually one of the finished aspects of this game. It’s a “Musical Action Roguelike” which sounds not unlike Beat Hazard (which is great btw) but judging by the videos and screenshots, it looks more like an isometric Binding of...

Funded via “hasn’t the games press bloody shut up about that yet” crowdfunder extraordinare Kickstarter last year, War for the Overworld is a fully funded and very-much-going-to-happen thing described as a “dungeon management game”.

Glitchspace: Hands-On

Sep 9, 2014

Glitchspace excites me mentally. I love the idea of programming but didn’t really have the capacity to learn it or use it meaningfully. Glitchspace uses semi-simple coding/mathematical terms and lets you play around with them to a certain degree. It’s still early access but is highly promising, in a way that made me play it through in its current...
