Thimbleweed Park Coming to iOS September 19, First Impressions Inside

Thimbleweed Park By: Ron Gilbert Update: Thimbleweed Park is now out on iOS! I've heard that Ron Gilbert's Thimbleweed Park is inspired by the television show, Twin Peaks, but I didn't really know what that meant until I started watching the 1990 show about a week ago. While I'm still early on in the show, its quirkiness has piqued my interest in the game.

All That Remains By: Glitch Games It should be no surprise to anyone by now that I'm a big fan of Glitch Games. I've been following their work since they released a little demo they made during a game jam, and they've since proven themselves to be quite the devilish adventure game designers. Tricky puzzles abound in all of their games. And while Forever Lost might be over, they're not done exploring dark and dreary environments. Their next game is called All That Remains, and the first part Read more [...]

I just finished playing the upcoming game by Accidental Queens called A Normal Lost Phone. It was originally made as part of a game jam and then expanded into a commercial release. I didn't play the original, so I can't speak to how much has been added. But the final version is a well-written game with subject matter not Read more [...]
