• Hands On: The Curious Expedition

      By Adam Smith on November 28th, 2014 at 5:00 pm. The Curious Expedition is a breezy, bright and endearing game about small groups of explorers who head into the unknown to seek golden pyramids and other wonders, natural and man-made. There have been comparisons to FTL, which are understandable but not entirely appropriate.

      By Matthew Cox on November 26th, 2014 at 5:00 pm. As of last month, developers Facepunch (headed by Garry Newman of Garry’s Mod fame) declared that what was previously known as ‘Experimental Mode’ is now the definitive version of Rust.

  • Living your life in a Habitat – A preview worth a Thousand Generations in Orbit

    …. Unfortunately, the at-first addictive gameplay and humourous and creative space junk, cannot make up for the gameplay annoyances and flaws. Therefore, I would probably give this game a 4/10 if I was actually reviewing this preview copy. It’s a far cry from perfect, but then again, it’s by no means awful. If this game goes on sale, or you have…

  • Deathtrap (PC) Preview

  • Hands On With Hyper Light Drifter’s Combat

    … if you want to go fast, as I’ve learned through playing the game’s Kickstarter preview build. HLD was successfully Kickstarted last year, where “successfully” is a dreadful understatement. Developer Teddy Diefenbach asked for $27,000 and received $645k, meaning the game ballooned from a simple-ish hack-and-slasher inspired by Zelda to a larger…
