Trippy Real-Time Strategy Title 'Devouring Stars' Coming to iOS Soon

Strategy games often try to convey a massive sense of scope, having you control entire nations instead of individual troops or units. Heck they even coined a phrase for them: Grand Strategy Wargames. But what if the scope was even grander than that, like say entire galaxies battling each other? That's the idea behind Devouring

Interactive Novel 'One Button Travel' Will Let you Travel Starting Tomorrow

A few weeks back I wrote about TheCodingMonkeys' upcoming One Button Travel because I was intrigued by the game's very cryptic trailer.

We're Streaming iOS Games Live on Mobcrush [Light Apprentice and Sonic 2]

We're streaming live on Mobcrush right now.

'Titan Quest' and 'Pang Adventures' Featured in DotEmu's Paris Games Week Video Recap

Being that developer DotEmu is based in France, it's no surprise that they were at the Paris Games Week show a few weeks back. However, this was the first show where they've actually had their own booth, and it looked like they had a bunch of stuff to show off to fans who stopped by.

'I Wanna be the Hero' Promises to be Like a Non-Rhythmic 'Crypt of the Necrodancer'

I'm always up for some fresh new takes on the roguelike genre. I Wanna be the Hero, exactly that, is looking pretty promising. The developers are claiming inspiration from the spectacular Crypt of the Necrodancer (which really ought to come to mobile), though minus the rhythm aspect of the game. However, this does mean that

'Go Pogo' Features Tons of Nitrome Cameos and Pogo Sticks

Nitrome, fine purveyors of pixel art games, have another new game coming out this Thursday on American Thanksgiving, Go Pogo. You control a character bouncing on a pogo, sliding your finger horizontally to control the angle of the pogo, with wider jumping angles jumping lower but further.

'Crimbo' is a Twisted Christmas Take on 'Limbo'

One of the defining characteristics of Playdead's critically-acclaimed 2010 puzzle platformer Limbo [$4.99] is its silhouetted visual style and dark mood. But you know what Limbo is missing? Santa Claus. Digi-Chain Games plans on rectifying that with their tongue-in-cheek Christmas take on Limbo called Crimbo. Like Limbo, the silhouetted style of Crimbo allows for plenty

'Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes' Now Available Worldwide

It's the most wonderful time of the year: Star Wars tie-in season. Between Star Wars Battlefront, the many toys arriving on shelves, and apparently every single foodstuff in Japan according to our Shaun Musgrave. Soon everything will be related to Star Wars or the holiday season. Maybe even both! As such, EA has decided to

It's a Board Game Deluge - Uwe Rosenberg's 'Glass Road' Should Hit the App Store Very Soon

November's been a crazy month for board game lovers; we got Brass, Steam: Rails to Riches, Le Havre: The Inland Port, and apparently we might also get Uwe Rosenberg's 2013 Glass Road if all goes as planned. If you haven't played Glass Road, it's a resource management and tile placement game for 1-4 players set in the glass-making

'Pathfinder: Adventure Card Game' Delayed Until Early 2016, and Apparently That's a Good Thing

Back in July, I wrote about the upcoming Pathfinder Adventure Card Game (PACG) by Obsidian Entertainment, a game that looked very intriguing to me even though I haven't played the physical game or any other Pathfinder-related games. The game was supposed to come out Fall 2015, but in a Paizo blog today, we got word

'Go! Go! CommanderVideo' is a New Runner from the Developers of 'Bit.Trip Run'

Choice Provisions have just released a new endless runner based on the Bit.Trip series, called Go! Go! CommanderVideo [Free], and it's available as a free download. This uses the same basic principles as Bit.Trip Run [$3.99], but is simplified for more of a simple, casual game. You can only jump, either short or long by

'Temple of Orsis' Heroic FTP Deck Lists for 'Hearthstone' League of Explorers Adventure

When League of Explorers [Free] was announced at Blizzcon this year, no one was expecting to see a release within the month of November, much less within a week of the announcement. Even the grand master TommyJ was thrown a little off his game, but I am here to tell you, it didn't take long

'Prune' is Time's Game of the Year, the Second Straight Year a Mobile Game Has Won

The mainstream gaming media doesn't treat mobile games with a fraction of the respect they deserve, but the mainstream media somehow does. Time Magazine's website has gotten some hardcore gamers in a tizzy by naming Prune [$3.99] their game of the year, above such luminaries as Metal Gear Solid 5 and The Witcher 3. The

'Diabolical' Review - Ridiculously Evil

The flexibility of topics in the interactive fiction genre is one of its greatest strengths. I've said this before, but due to the relatively low production costs of putting words on a page, interactive fiction can take risks that other games dare not. Thankfully, nearly every company releasing gamebooks isn't shy about flexing that privilege.
