You can now Mount Your Friends on PC, and you really should

July 29, 2014 6:25 AM | Michael Rose


Mount Your Friends is out on Steam today. The original Xbox Live Indie Game saw players climbing atop one-another, naked flesh and swinging manhoods akimbo, and this PC version is no different.

What you can expect this time around is online multiplayer, and lots of new single and multiplayer modes. If you've never played Mount Your Friends before, let me assure you that this is an experience you need to have. It's hilarious, but it's also one of the best modern party games you can play. Mount Your Friends is out today on Steam.

Freeware Pick: Even The Stars (Pol Clarissou, Nicholas Gavan)

July 29, 2014 3:15 AM | Konstantinos Dimopoulos / Gnome

eventhestars.pngGetting old, getting lost, getting stranded. Disappointment, boredom, old age, lack of purpose.

Yes, Even The Stars definitely isn't about starry-eyed space heroes and interstellar excitement. It doesn't promise anyone a riveting journey. Or dogfights. What it promises and promptly provides players with is a wonderful galactic journey of contemplation and exploration, after which only a captain's log will remain to remind everyone of the wondrous artifacts, structures and places you discovered. It's the journey that matters after all and this is one you'll be taking mostly via text controls in a beautifully crafted universe.

Even The Stars can be played online or downloaded for your Windows, Mac or Linux machine.

Browser Pick: Figure of Eight (ABA Games)

There's no way to control the ship directly as it moves back and forth mimicking the shape of an infinity symbol, but you can always left-click on the game window to make the ship move at a fraction of its original speed.

The Room makes move from mobile to PC, still hurts brains

July 28, 2014 2:37 PM | Michael Rose


The Room, the tricky puzzle game from Fireproof Games that launched on mobile back in 2012, has finally seen a release on PC. This means that if you don't really play mobile games, you now have no excuse for trying The Room out.

Here's what to expect: There's a locked box in a room, and the only way to pry it open and discover its secrets is to press buttons, use keys in locks, and generally solve all the puzzles and riddles scattered all over the boxes. It gets very tricky, but fortunately there are numerous hints available just in case you have no idea what to do next.

Well worth grabbing, especially for the super cheap price. You can find The Room on Steam.

Kickstarter Pick: Using the structure of an MMO to teach in Tyto Online

July 28, 2014 9:15 AM | Lena LeRay

MMORPG developers create large game worlds and a great many interconnected game systems. They have a steep learning curve for the uninitiated, but they are very satisfying to master. Immersed Games wants to capitalize on these inherent traits to promote learning with Tyto Online, an MMORPG which will eventually grow to incorporate many areas of learning but which is starting with teaching middle schoolers about ecologies.

Freeware Pick: Water Hazard, an homage to 90's survival horror games

July 28, 2014 2:00 AM | Tim

whazard2c.pngWater Hazard is a Ludum Dare 29 submission that was partly inspired by survival horror classics like the Resident Evil series and Alone in the Dark. Set on a boat out at sea, the adventure begins with you finding a captain on the other side of a locked fence who is too injured to move. Something is obviously bothering the man, so you'll have to go below deck and find a way to reach him.

Introducing Sundae Month, starting with ShapeDown

Sundae Month is a newly-formed collective of student game developers. It consists of two teams working on large game projects Levity and Boatventure, but the teams have committed to taking turns releasing small, free games every month as a sort of ongoing game jam to keep their skills fresh. Their first monthly release, ShapeDown, is a game which blends simple mechanics and aesthetics together in a way that results in a more engaging experience than the gif above might imply.

Freeware Pick: AGPPBP (MC Hepher, takorii)

July 25, 2014 2:00 AM | Tim

agppbp2a.pngA Ghost Porno Page by Page (AGPPBP) by tak and MC Hepher was originally one of the nine games created for DEVCHAT's Ghost Wheel Bundle. The new version that's available to download separately has been updated with several changes and additions, fleshing out the short e-book story with even more pages to flip through.

Gods Will Be Watching is out, and a bit awesome

July 24, 2014 12:52 PM | Michael Rose


Gods Will Be Watching has finally been released on Steam, and well, it's a bit of a special one. The best way I can describe this game is by calling it a cyberpunk, turn-based, decision-balancing adventure. I know that doesn't really help, so just take my word for it that it's super neat.

Take the first mission, for example: You're part of a break-in on a space station, and you have to keep an eye on the hostages, keep the other eye on the incoming SWAT team, and keep a third eye on your team mates and their jobs. Of course, no-one has three eyes, which is why this balancing act can prove disastrous -- I lost more than a dozen times before I beat the first mission. It's that sort of game.

There aren't many other games quite like this, so if you're looking for something different, picking up Gods Will Be Watching on Steam would be a rather good idea.
