Endless Flier Race The Sun Drops Price Tag For a Day to Celebrate DLC and iOS Release

Race The Sun (Sunrise DLC)
No matter what you do, the sun will set. There's no stopping it, but you can delay the process ever so slightly by picking up energy boosts and going fast. Really fast. There's no way to learn the lay of the land though, as the level is procedurally generated on a daily basis, frequently forcing players into unknown territory (uh-oh). That said, as long as you don't slow down, stay in the light and avoid crashing, maybe, just maybe, you'll be able to... Race The Sun!

Blazin’ Amazin’ Twin-Stick Shooter Inferno 2 Has Finally Arrived On Steam

Inferno 2 (Steam)
Twin-stick shooter and action-RPG. Not every day these two genres clash in a single title, but that's exactly the case in Radiangames' Inferno 2. Oh and you better believe it's one helluva mix; one packing far more depth than your average genre (as in, twin-stick shooter) entry, to boot: a fully featured leveling system, ship customization (and upgrades), secret areas, and much more. Groovy.

Speculating Screenshots (25th July 2015)

Speculating Screenshots
For most, weekends means two days off work with some much-needed R&R. But for game developers, it's also a time during which they get to show off what they've been working on. I am of course referring to Screenshot Saturday, which involves tweeting screenshots with the #ScreenshotSaturday hashtag. Screenshots which I will be critiquing some of every single Tuesday, in Speculating Screenshots.

Being an Evil Principal In the No Pineapple Left Behind Alpha Is Rather Amusing

No Pineapple Left Behind (alpha)
Children (as in, humans) are complex, loud and much too easily distracted, all of which are not good for this school's budget. Pineapples on the other hand, are simple, determined and study hard. Because of this, pineapples are beneficial to the school, while children… well, they're a hassle. As such, your job in No Pineapple Left Behind is to ensure good grades across the board by any means necessary - even if it means turning children into pineapples (wait, what?).

There’s Still Plenty Time to Participate In A Game By Its Cover 2015

A Game By Its Cover 2015
While game jams are a dime a dozen these days, very few come with a unique, worthwhile twist, and even fewer with one as crazy as A Game By Its Cover. Here, participants are tasked with making a game, based on… fake cartridge/disk/box art! No, really. Ah, the possibilities! I mean, the only genuine restriction is 'any pre-made cover art you can find', which is hardly a limitation, ya know?

The Big Indie Stream Is Determined to Promote Lesser-knowns On July 23rd, 2015

The Big Indie Stream
Thanks to technology, there are more ways than ever to promote video games, whether it be your own or someone else's. From the ancient art of written publications and word-of-mouth to modern methods like, say... a commentated, pre-recorded video, and - thanks to the likes of Twitch - real-time broadcasting. The latter is the focus of The Big Indie Stream, which is set to kick off tomorrow!

The Last Door Episode Seven Has Entered Beta

The Last Door: The Reunion (beta)
As has been the case for a while now with each episode of The Last Door, this seventh - titled The Reunion - will also be preceded by a beta release. What this means is that, first and foremost, this spine-chilling story is rapidly approaching continuation, but at the same time, there are also potential bugs to squash, typos to fix, and so on.

Kung Fury: Street Rage Review

Kung Fury: Street Rage
Remember how Hitler utilized tanks, firearms, politics and so on to wage war back in the day? Well, imagine if instead, he was this super powerful, still genuinely evil, martial artist. Still with me? Good, because in Kung Fury: Street Rage, a rather simplistic brawler, you - Kung Fury - have been sent back in time to thwart his evil kung fu schemes. Time to kick some nazi ass, 1980s arcade style (wait, what?).
