‘Veritas’ is Glitch Games’ Next Point-and-Click Adventure

A few days ago, I posted a story about how I overlooked but then rediscovered a website created by Glitch Games to tease their next game. You can read that here if you haven't yet. Details of the new game weren't revealed yet. Instead, a fake company called Veritas Industries that has its foot in every aspect of, well...everything, said it was looking for human subjects for its Insomnium project. I wrongly assumed the game would be named Insomnium. It's actually called Veritas, and you play as Read more [...]

Glitch Games Sort of Announced Their Next Game

I was browsing my Twitter feed today with my morning coffee and had an odd conversation with Graham Ranson, one half of Glitch Games. He said I might have already seen one of their next games without realizing it. I thought it was strange, but I didn't pry just yet. https://twitter.com/GrahamRanson/status/927883974323601408 I continued about my day, playing some Starman, which I highly recommend, by the way. A short time later, I see a tweet from Glitch Games about how they got no responses to Read more [...]

‘Stephen’s Sausage Roll’-Inspired ‘Campfire Cooking’ Releasing This October

If I got a dime every time someone told me to play Stephen Lavelle's puzzle game, Stephen's Sausage Roll, I'd have...about a dollar? But seriously, people keep recommending it and I keep responding "but it's not on iOS." There are some shorter narrative games I've played on my PC over the last few years, such as The Stanley Parable. But I have so many games on my iPad and iPhone and there's very little that can make me give up my comfy touchscreen and couch to be bent over a keyboard and mouse at Read more [...]

Thimbleweed Park is Out Now on iOS and Has Won Me Over

Thimbleweed Park By: Terrible Toybox (Ron Gilbert) I'm not going to mince words. When I first heard about and saw screenshots of Ron Gilbert's Thimbleweed Park, I had some excitement mixed with dread. Dread that it would mimic old retro games to a point that wouldn't be enjoyable for me. I'm very sensitive about games wasting my time, and a list of action verbs on the screen was not that appealing to me. I didn't grow up on LucasArts games. The point-and-click adventures I played were those Read more [...]

Opinion: The iPhone X Sounds Like a Nightmare for Games

I didn't watch Apple's Keynote yesterday, but I've been catching up on the news about the iPhone X and it's been quite a rollercoaster ride. I haven't gotten my hands on it yet, but wanted to share some of my thoughts, especially when it comes to gaming. First off, the new Super Retina OLED display sounds great. Who doesn't want more pixels and an overall better screen? Edge-to-edge seems exciting at first, too, but on further thought I have concerns about it that I'll cover further down. Feel Read more [...]
