11 bit Studios last year announced This War of Mine, an interesting game where you play as civilians in the middle of a war, scrounging for supplies and trying to survive until the war ends. The game came out on PC last year to critical acclaim, but now the tablet version is finally making its

GDC 2015: 'Smooth Operator' is the Multiplayer Tongue-Kissing Simulator You Always Wanted

One of the goofier games I've gottent o play this year at GDC has been Smooth Operator, a multiplayer tongue-kissing simulator from Portland-based Beardo Games. While the game is still in the works and being expanded, the current version the devs were showing off was itself expanded from a recent Ludum Dare game jam entry

GDC 2015: Uber-Stylish Transit Simulator 'Mini Metro' is Coming to iPad

PC game Mini Metro is making its way to iOS, and after a hands-on demo of the game, there's plenty of reason to be excited about this one. It is essentially a game about connecting transit lines in a number of levels loosely based off of real-world cities. New destinations keep popping up, and you

GDC 2015: 'Phenom-A-Ball', a Matching Game with Physics

The matching game genre is a tough nut to crack, and the people making those games are always trying to differentiate themselves from the pack.

GDC 2015: 'Aralon: Forge and Flame', the Epic Open-World RPG is Looking Better than Ever

It's crazy to think that it's been more than a year since Crescent Moon and Galoobeth Games announced Aralon: Forge and Flame, the follow-up to Aralon: Sword and Shadow [$4.99] the groundbreaking open-world RPG for mobile devices that originally launched in late 2010. Time flies, as they say, and Aralon: Forge and Flame has been

The update adds Chapter Two to the game, which

GDC 2015: 'Zombie Match Defense' Brings a Match-3 Element to 'Plants vs. Zombies', and it Totally Works

In a world where it's becoming increasingly difficult to make a match-3 game interesting in any way, every once in a while someone is still able to come along and do just that. In this particular case, that someone is Jake Sones from Shovelware Games and his upcoming game Zombie Match Defense. Oh I forgot,

GDC 2015: 'The Deer God' is a Unique Platformer with a Breathtaking Visual Style

One of the coolest-looking upcoming games from Crescent Moon is The Deer God, a randomly generated platformer with RPG elements and a killer pixel art style. You may remember us posting about it last November when it was part of an Android Humble Bundle that allowed you to get early access to the game… if

Incredibly Deep RPG 'Siralim' Has A Big Update Coming Soon

If you like your RPGs mechanically deep, extremely challenging, and don't mind if the visuals are a bit antiquated, Siralim [Free] is one of the best games you can get on the App Store. I liked it quite a bit when I reviewed it back at its launch last summer, and developer Thylacine Studios has

GDC 2015: Upcoming 'Fighter Physics' Sequel Wants to be the 'Mortal Kombat X' of Goofy Physics Games

GDC 2015: 'Jelly Reef' Finally Combines Jellyfish, Sea Currents, and Roguelikes

Game Oven's Jelly Reef, the last game they're making, was demoed to us at GDC 2015. This may seem quite different from something like Fingle [$1.99 (HD)], and that's because Bojan Endrovski, the team's main programmer, took point on designing the game from the original student version that was created. This is a roguelike-inspired game,

GDC 2015: 'Forma.8' Still Exists, Hopes to Release This Year

MixedBag Studios' Forma.8 has been in the works for a long time now, several years since its initial incarnation.

GDC 2015: 'Riff the Robot', a Mashup of Slingshots, Pinball and 'Peggle'

Today at GDC we sat down with developer Oh So Shiny to look at their first iOS game Riff the Robot. The premise is pretty wacky: You're a mad scientist who has "lost his marbles" over the years, so you build a time-travelling robot to go back in time and collect them for you. Your
