‘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…

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…

‘Reigns’ Sequel, ‘Her Majesty,’ Announced for Release Later This Year

It would be hard, if not impossible, to have missed out on the hit Tinder-like swiping game, Reigns, which released just a bit over a year ago and became an instant hit, topping the App Store charts. While I didn't review the game, I did interview the developer, François Alliot, and wrote a very detailed walkthrough for it. The game had an incredibly satisfying mechanic that had you swiping left and right…

Finding the Right Words: An Interview with Neven Mrgan About Grayout, the Prequel to Blackbar

Grayout By: Mrgan LLC I was a couple of years late to the party with Neven Mrgan and James Moore's censorship game Blackbar, but it's a trippy experience that I recommend trying if you haven't yet. It uses dark humor and absurdity to warn us about relying too heavily on surveillance and censorship. I loved the tone of the game, so when I heard they were working on a prequel called Grayout,…

Legend of Grimrock for iPhone is in the Works

Legend of Grimrock By: Almost Human ltd. I recently wrote a review for the brutal dungeon crawler Legend of Grimrock by Almost Human. It was originally made for PCs, but they recently ported it to iPad. It plays beautifully and I've been enjoying it quite a bit. It's a challenging game and will likely take me a while to complete. But Petri Häkkinen of Almost Human confirmed on Twitter today that the…
