Oddmar features 24 expertly crafted levels of physics-based puzzles […]


Someone Announced Glover 2 Without Holding The Rights To Glover 1

by Peter Paltridgeon April 19, 2018
In one of the weirder news stories to come across our desk this month, a German game studio announced they were beginning work on a sequel to the critically panned, publically mocked 1999 platformer Glover. In the game, you made a living glove walk around and push a ball past obstacles to the end of […]

The Spatials: Galactology Is Now Out On Steam

by Peter Paltridgeon April 18, 2018
In the original The Spatials, you built a space station, populated it with workers, explored neighboring planets and built your business, meeting tons of crazy personalities along the way.

Platinum’s World Of Demons Announced

by Peter Paltridgeon April 18, 2018
Platinum Games has revealed they’ve been working for three years on translating the fast-paced, artful games they’re known for into an experience that can be recreated on cell phones. Today they unveiled the fruits of their labor, World of Demons. I’m aware that we’ve pooh-poohed mobile games several times on this site, most recently with […]

Devoid of Shadows

Devoid Of Shadows Gets Big Update

by Todd Blackon April 18, 2018
Updates are a key part of video games nowadays, and for titles on Steam, they can even be a lifeblood of sorts. Which is an appropriate phrase as Devoid Of Shadows has just gotten a major update on Steam today. The ARPG that has a bit of roguelike in it is a game of vampires […]

And the only way out is to solve puzzles that require hunting down keys and piecing together hints? You’ve got dishes to wash and rugs to vacuum; you’ve […]


There’s A New Castlevania On The Way….For Phones

by Peter Paltridgeon April 17, 2018
Konami announced today they’re finally making another game in the Castlevania series, Grimoire of Souls….but don’t get too excited. It’s still the same Konami that fired Hideo and pulled PT from your hard drive and released a shallow “Metal Gear” game early this year. True to form, their latest Castlevania won’t have any buttons. It’ll […]

Kingdom Hearts 3 Will Include Game & Watch-Style Minigames

by Peter Paltridgeon April 16, 2018
It wasn’t that long ago we wrote about Tiger handhelds and how unplayable most of them were (if you’re too young to have experienced one, emulation is now a click away). There were other companies that managed to work with the limitations and produce some addictive games, though. The king of these was (naturally) Nintendo […]

The Mystery Of The Mega Drive Mini

by Peter Paltridgeon April 14, 2018
Nintendo sure laughed all the way to the bank with their Classics line of mini-consoles. It’s still difficult to track down a SNES Classic, though it has gotten much easier since its release. And when the NES Classic is reissued this summer it’s guaranteed to move millions. Sega must really regret licensing their retro console […]


Shenmue And Shenmue II Coming To Modern Consoles

by Peter Paltridgeon April 14, 2018
We’ve been waiting for Shenmue 3 since 2015…..well, truthfully, we’ve been waiting for it since Shenmue II on the original XBox; we just never had definitive hope until recently. But now that we know it’s coming, it would make sense for Sega to rerelease the first two games, wouldn’t it? This release may be anticipated […]
