Warcry: Challenges is a first-person shooter speedrun game.

Phew, this one seems good to me. When I first heard the name Warcry Challenges, I wasn’t impressed (maybe I was thinking of Warface, a different game), and the creator defines it as the solution to the question, “What if Doomguy had a drunk one night fling with Super Meat Boy?” When I first heard […]

Sam Barlow’s next game is a Hollywood thriller that spans decades.

The revelation of Immortality, a decades-spanning Hollywood mystery from Her Story and Telling Lies developer Sam Barlow, brought Sunday’s Future Games Show to a dramatic close. Immortality, which was teased last year as being “ten times more ambitious” than Barlow’s most recent work, has been lurking on Steam in a deeply censored version as Project […]

Solve a mystery from your window in Conway: Disappearance at Dahlia View

When you’re a private investigator, you’re always a private investigator. At least, that’s how it seems for Conway, a former private investigator who is drawn back into a web of conspiracies after a small girl goes missing in the neighbourhood. Conway: Disappearance at Dahlia View, a gloomy thriller from White Paper Games, was announced during […]

Project Ferocious is a survival first-person shooter set on a dinosaur island.

During this year’s Future Games Show, we got a look at Project Ferocious, a forthcoming survival shooter. That’s a decent enough codename to maintain for the final product, similar to Untitled Goose Game because it suits nicely. Project Ferocious is a first-person shooter set on an island teeming with ancient monsters—a strange forgotten planet where […]

Minute of Islands, a strange and wonderful experience, is now available.

When Minute of Islands, the story of a tinkerer named Mo who dwells on a network of islands packed with odd inventions that keep an ancient evil away, was unveiled at the 2020 Guerrilla Collective, I was immediately drawn to it. It was supposed to be released later that year, but it didn’t happen, and […]

Simulating a space station Starmancer will be released on August 5th.

We got another peek at Chucklefish’s Starmancer, a space station simulator, at the Future Games Show. You’re an AI granted command of an entire station and its crew, personalizing quarters and ensuring that adequate food is available for all of your colonists. It’s all really pixel-chunky, and everything snaps together or falls into place in […]

KeyWe is a very cute puzzle game starring mail birds out this August

I don’t think I need to explain the appeal of KeyWe, a game in which you control kiwi birds in a remote post office. As previously stated, if your game features a bird, I’m already intrigued, and mail birds? Double-sold. The kiwi birds in KeyWe are named Jeff and Debra (adorable!) and have a tough […]

Project Warlock 2 is going all-in on firearms and ‘vertical as hell’ levels.

The original Project Warlock, a retro FPS launched in 2018, combined Wolfenstein 3D’s flat graphics and level design with current advancement mechanisms and substantial weapon upgrades. That strategy worked successfully for Jakub “Kuba” Cislo, who created Project Warlock with a small crew while still in high school. After having recently played the demo, I can […]
