Freeware Pick: What Now? - Digital Existential Expressionism by Indie Grimes

April 21, 2014 1:11 AM | John Polson

what now.jpgArielle Grimes (developing games as Indie Grimes) reached out to share her interactive digital expressionist game/art piece, What Now?, and I was happy to oblige. It's a short experience, but one that has bits and pieces at least some of us can probably relate to, living in this glitched up world called Earth.

PAX preview: planetary annihilation meets puzzle gameplay in Destructamundo

April 20, 2014 9:15 PM | Anthony Swinnich

Destroying planets is something reserved for super powerful beings, like Galactus or characters in the Dragon Ball universe. It's at the least something games usually ramp into, but that's not the case in Destructamundo. You'll be blowing up solar systems as soon as the game begins.

After its first success with getting a game from Kickstarter to Steam, developer Triple.B.Titles is going for it again. And their new game, Popup Dungeon has a lot to recommend it.

PAX preview: stylish and smooth, Hyper Light Drifter impresses

April 19, 2014 10:10 AM | Anthony Swinnich

If I composed a list of my most anticipated games, Hyper Light Drifter would rank toward the top. I was pretty excited to find out it would be at PAX East, because I hadn't yet had the opportunity to give it a shot. Heart Machine had both a single player and multiplayer scenario on hand, and I'm pleased to report that they merely strengthened my desire to play this game.

PAX preview: not crashing in Race The Sun is harder than it seems

April 18, 2014 9:50 PM | Anthony Swinnich

I flew. I flew fast. I crashed. I tried again.

I repeated that process at Flippfly's PAX East 2014 setup for about five minutes straight. After a bit I was getting the hang of things, but the growing line of people behind me were getting impatient. They too would soon know that this game inspires the "one more try" feeling like so many that have come before it.
