    Arakion looks very similar to Bastion, except it is rendered in 3D and has more traditional RPG elements (a party system, complex skills and character customization, and so on) that make it unique. The game itself is a story-driven first-person RPG that focuses on character customization and town building. However, it does differ from typical...

As we exchange our calendars and turn over the page for a new year, here is a small wish list of five things I would like to see next year (and hey, might actually happen!). 5) Next Gen of Pokémon...

    Like Planetary Annihilation, Blackspace is a real-time strategy game that focuses on extraterrestrial mining and warfare. Unlike Planetary Annihilation, the focus is more on mining than the warfare bit. The entire preview of it resembles a more aggressive version of Minecraft—although instead of focusing on building, you focus entirely on staying alive. Despite insisting that...

    One of the first point-and-click games to hit the markets and one that shaped the entire genre for decades to come, Shadowgate is finally able to make a reappearance through the Kickstarter platform. Massively updating the graphics and UI with current-gen capabilities, the new Shadowgate looks amazing compared to other point-and-click adventures, and absolutely blows...

    MAK (pronounced ‘make’) arguably contains the best relative gravity of any game ever designed—and just as well, since the game is based around it. The game gives you a character that can jump from rock to rock through space, along several different building blocks (literally—they are cube-shaped) to help you travel or defend your territory....

    Radio the Universe is a unique project that reminds me of Limbo, Home, and Sword & Sworcery, since it relies very heavily on its visual theme while telling its story and delivering high-quality gameplay. Made mainly by one person, this game has just the right dose of retro to get away with pixel art and...
