    We reviewed Whispering Willows a little while back, and while you can grab it on the Ouya, the release for Steam has been pushed back to July 9th for further improvements.

    E3 starts in under an hour, but there is something more important than that going on right now, and it affects games that will be at E3. There really isn’t much to say here that Austin Wintory doesn’t say in the video. The creation of video game music right now is not being allowed, and […]

    I’ve been following the development of Witchmarsh for quite a while now, and it’s wonderful to finally see some new footage.

    Dragon Fin Soup is an upcoming console RPG in the vein of the SNES era with tactical action, roguelike elements, and a twist on common fairytales.

    I recently got the opportunity to play a build of Oblitus, and it’s better than I anticipated.
