• 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.

    Published at - 12 readers

    I don't know what it is, but it's always really exciting to see innovation in the SHMUP genre.

Players can fire their weapon in any direction which is a huge departure for a genre that usually fires in one direction.

  • 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.

  • Prophour23 is a compact yet fully-fleshed RTS game with character

    … strategy is familiar and the game seems really well balanced.
