I am not that good at Starbound, but my god has it got its claws into me. Starbound is a new indie game from studio Chucklefish. It’s a PROCEDURAL SPACE SANDBOX which means it’s instantly found its way into my pants, but will it worm its way into yours, reader? (Since you’re probably way less

An Early Christmas Gift: Starbound Hits Public Beta

December! A time for joy and togetherness around the world. It’s the fifth now, so I reckon I’m justified in listening to Christmas songs. Like this one: What Christmas is not traditionally associated with is epic freeform space adventure videogames. Luckily, Chucklefish don’t give a monkey’s about that, and saw fit to release their epic

Holy Butts! You Probably Want Game Music Bundle 6

I’ve realized that I’m in a bit of a musical rut at the moment. I love the music I have on my phone, but it’s been a largely static selection for a quite a while. So Game Music Bundle 6 is coming at the perfect time for me. If you feel like shedding a dollar,

Well, the people over at Groupees want to change this and have now unveiled their second japan-focused indie bundle that’ll be available for eleven more days. While the list of games is expanding, currently

Hello everyone! I currently feel very hungover from my visit to the UK’s premiere games con, Eurogamer Expo. I played a boatload of good games, and one that was utter shite. HERE ARE MY PREVIEWS. I also dole out worthless awards because I’m a muppet. Tenya Wanya Teens – Keita Takahashi Tenya Wanya Teens is

Middle of Nowhere is a horror game that will be coming to Kickstarter

Middle of Nowhere is an indie-developed horror game by VisionArts. The story is written by Rely on Horror‘s Editor-in-Chief Jorge Bocanegra. Now, the game itself received its first trailer (above) today, teasing the concept of the game. However, as the trailer states, it’s a low-res, low-FPS, 4:3 trailer that practically only shows off the concept of

Project Phoenix – The first Japanese videogame Kickstarter unites talents from all around the world

If there’s one genre that seems to be the big favourite of indie-developers on Kickstarter, it’s roleplaying games. Soul Saga, Cryamore, Shroud of the Avatar, Shadowun Returns and the list goes on and on. Not that I’m complaining of course, RPGs are something I’m a big fan of and I’m happy to see more of

To the Moon prequel A Bird Story announced for Summer.

I’ve heard almost nothing but good things about To The Moon, yet I’ve never actually gotten around to playing it. People have told me it made them cry, that it’s possibly the most emotional gaming experience they’ve ever had. While I doubt any game will top what Metal Gear Solid 3 made me feel, it’s

Japanese doujin fighter Vanguard Princess now available

I’ll confess, I’m a bit of a sucker for a good doujin (indie) fighter. Melty Blood is one of the finest 2D fighters around, and even when a doujin fighter turns out awful, they’re almost always interesting, like the hilariously stupid Les Misérables-based Arm Joe. Vanguard Princess is the latest entry into this genre, and
