• Kickstarter Pick: sci-fi platformer Beyond Human is heavy on atmosphere

    Published at - 17 readers

    If you're going to cite games like Metroid, Guacamelee and Devil May Cry as influences for your new gaming project, you better make sure whatever you show lives up to that claim. Luckily, Beyond Human appears to do just that. Blending fast-paced melee combat with the loneliness of isolated space exploration could be a winning combo after all.

  • Kickstarter Pick: hunt and cook magically in Battle Chef Brigade - - 8 readers - Magical abilities aren't often applied to mundane tasks in fiction. Cinderella and Mary Poppins stick out as some of the more memorable ways you can apply special abilities to normal, every day activities, but they're not too exciting. Heck, those are just about chores. How about cooking? Or hunting for the goods you wish to cook? That sounds a bit more exciting.
  • Dual-character action platformer Virus takes on Mega Man X formula, crowdfunding now - - 13 readers - Much like 2D Metroid and 2D Castlevania, 2D Mega Man (or heck, any Mega Man for that matter) has become something that feels like we'll never see again. And much like those properties, the fans have learned that if you want to play a new entry, it'll have to come from somewhere else. That's not to say Virus is a direct clone of Mega Man X, but it's vastly inspired by it.
