‘Brave Hand’ is an Upcoming Card Game About Luck and Skill, Preview Inside

Glitch Games’ ‘All That Remains Part 1’ Scheduled to Release This Month

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…

‘Puzzlepops! Trick or Treat’ Serves Up Both Tricks and Treats This Thursday

Puzzlepops! Trick or Treat By: Layton Hawkes Update: The game is now out! The title of Layton Hawkes' latest puzzle game might be slightly misleading, as Puzzlepops! Trick or Treat doesn't make you choose between the two. It's a Halloween-themed sequel to one of my favorite puzzlers, Puzzlepops!. It features all types of sweets -- including candy corn, candy bats, wax vampire lips, and eyeball jawbreakers -- and is often quite tricky.…

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,…
