Sparklite at GDC

Redefining the Classic Adventure Game with Sparklite at GDC

Red Blue Games’ Sparklite is a brawler-adventure with procedural world generation, but its classic influences are pretty obvious even at first glance. The game’s rogue-like level map generation, and sardonic humor set it apart as a fully modern invention, but the top-down isometric view, world-building, and art style are clearly reminiscent of early Nintendo classics, […]

Merge Games’ and Blackstaff Games’ Buildings Have Feelings Too is a real-time city builder with a twist. In this game, buildings cam walk and talk to each other, each has its own aspirations, fears, and desires.

Buildings Have Feelings Too Gets a New Summer Release Trailer

Merge Gaves has released a new trailer teasing a Summer release for their oddball sentient city simulator, Buildings Have Feelings Too. We actually had a chance to try this game out back at PAX West last year and it was both awkward and fun to try out, definitely in a  league of its own as […]

We Preview Aragami: Shadow Edition at PAX West

At PAX West, we also get to see games that are already out that are headed to new systems, like Aragami: Shadow Edition from Merge Games. The original is already out on Steam and has been doing okay for the past couple years, but it appears this special edition was called up by Nintendo to be […]

The Cutest Lil’ Dungeons Crawler in All of PAX West was Sparklite

It’s a rare moment when we get to fall in love with a game because it’s so darn cute, but Sparklite caught our attention at PAX West this year. Another title from Merge Games, this one puts you in the shoes of a go-getting adventurer named Ada who is also a badass engineer who comes up […]

We Learned at PAX West That, Indeed, Buildings Have Feelings Too

If there was ever an award for us to give to the weirdest game at PAX West, Buildings Have Feelings Too would be near the top. When we originally first approached the game, we were told that it played a little bit like Sim City, but at the same time we were also told no one […]

Trailer: Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Moonlighter

Digital Sun and 11 bit studios have released a new trailer for their upcoming RPG Moonlighter that’s designed to get players caught up with the game before it launches. The trailer showcases the game’s features and gives some background, but should do a pretty good job of introducing the game even if you have no idea […]

Revisiting Crimson Keep and All Of Its Perils at PAX East

Back at PAX West last year, we got to try a quick demo of Crimson Keep, and while it was cool to check out, there wasn’t a lot of substance to it then. Flash-forward eight months and here we are at PAX East checking out an improved demo of the title from Merge Games. The […]

There’s Only So Much Health In ‘Crimson Keep’ At PAX West

The second of two titles I got to try out from Merge Games at PAX West was Crimson Keep. This is a cool little adventure game that goes back to the old school way of dungeon crawling. First-person, single weapon, no map, and the best of luck to you getting through it. I wasn’t given […]

The Mysterious Horrors Of ‘The Long Reach’ At PAX West

Merge Games popped into PAX West with a few different titles this year, the first of two I got to try out was The Long Reach. The game is a mesh of genres wrapped up in a pixel art world, as they mix sci-fi, adventure, story crafting, and horror all into a single title. The demo […]
