When was the last time you could honestly say that you played an episodic, afro-caribbean inspired point and click game about the misadventures of a down-on-his-luck gas station attendant who becomes embroiled in a plot involving mysterious books and an evil power company?
If it’s been a while, continue reading about The Journey Down, a game that will satisfy all of these incredibly specific cravings!
GAR 24 and GAR 25 were our most recent multiplayer events, where we tried out some new and upcoming releases that offer fantastic single-screen battles.
We also dove deep into a new way for us to play here at GAR – System Link.
A wise man once said “When I move you move, just like that.” Lucky Frame have obviously taken this advice to heart with The Nightmare Cooperative, a dungeon crawler puzzle game featuring an ill-fated party of adventures who have to move, fight and survive as one increasingly desperate unit.
In deep space and in the far future, only you can save mankind. Aliens have invaded, as aliens tend to do, and after a frankly embarrasing failure by the regular space navy, you’re it. Unfortunately for you, you have at your disposal only a decades-old low-tech junker of a ship and your background as a backwater spaceracer.
However duty calls, so with a lowly ion cannon and a shield you set out to destroy the alien scum, save humanity, and hopefully not die in the process!
hey say the third of a trilogy is always the worst. Possibly true when it comes to Tom and Earl and their inability to finish Streets of Rage 3 without completely fluffing it up and being killed by poison gas.
Enjoy the last in our Let’s Play Streets of Rage series!
Part two of Tom and Earl’s epic afternoon, fighting through the streets of rage, with their bare knuckles! I know. Kill me.
In an ideal world, I wouldn’t even need to write very much to persuade you to go buy Transistor. I would just say, “oh, it’s the new game from the people who did Bastion,” and off you would run, ready to throw cold hard cash at Supergiant Games.
As we don’t live in an ideal world, I will have to try a little harder to convince you…
Tom and I play through Streets of Rage on the Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) in our first “Let’s Play” video. This is part one of a series where we played all three games in one sitting. The other two parts to follow soon!
We’d love to know if there is interest in this kind of content, as we enjoyed making it and I’m always looking for an excuse to wheel out my Mega Drive!
GAR 23 was a special event, as we hosted the Spaceteam Admiral’s Challenge for Madrid, in support of Henry Smith’s re-launched Kickstarter. Henry’s hoping to get funded in order to create 2 new games, both as inventive as Spaceteam is, and both free for everyone once released.
Simon Karlsson’s first major project, A Song for Viggo, has a brave and interesting proposition: a point and click adventure game built entirely out of paper about a man dealing with the aftermath of accidentally killing his own child. A one man force of creation, Simon is also writing the music, and orchestrating a kickstarter campaign make make his project reality. We took five minutes out of his busy schedule to get some more information about him and Viggo.
