It’s been a few weeks since we saw inexplicably famous white nationalist Richard Spencer punched in the face and the world has only gotten stranger. Luckily, games are an excellent outlet to explore the world around us. Handväska! is a silly response to the rise of modern fascism and it’s this week’s Indie Pick.
A dangerous bird-man stands before you. Music beats rhythmically and and chimes down, each second signaling your impending demise. You only have one shot at this. You scramble to line up your attack and slice, cutting him in half. This is Sinewave Samurai and it’s this week’s Indie Pick.
The Global Game Jam, where thousands upon thousands of gamers join together to create a video game over a weekend, is over, and this year, for the first time ever, the game jam also came to Beijing.
Developers from all over the world took part in the Global Game Jam in late January. Over 4000 games were made in the span of a weekend, with about 15 coming out from China through the game jam location in Shanghai. Let's take a look at what the Chinese developers came up with.
Pop Quiz, hot shot. Can you talk your friend through defusing a bomb that you can't see? Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes is a Spaceteam-like game where one person gets to be Keanu Reeves and their friends get to be Jeff Daniels.
Global Game Jam 2014 was this past weekend, and over 4,000 games were made at events around the world. Most of them are available to play online at the jam's site right now, so we took a look at a few of the ways people interpreted this year's theme.
The Gray Girl is an endless runner where you chase a floating gray girl, until you fall in a hole. Play the game here.
How do you do it? When a little girl gets left home alone with her dolls, she tries to figure out the mysteries of adult life. Check out the game here, or watch the video above.
So, Surgeon Simulator 2013 came out of nowhere (well, this year's Global Game Jam) to be one of the most hilarious, disturbing games that some folks have played this year. And that was before the folks at Bossa Studios added brain surgery to their in-progress game.
It may look like a cel-shaded reboot of Activision's Stampede. However, this is Kevin Costner's Tatanka Hunting Simulator 2013, an unauthorized adaptation of the Academy Award-winning Best Picture for 1991. It's the work of Acid Wizard Studio at the Global Game Jam, which wrapped up last week. And it looks insane.
If you're like me, you've played enough Trauma Center to know that open heart surgery is super duper easy. I mean, I'm practically a doctor over here! Which is why I'm loving the ultra realistic Global Game Jam game Surgeon-Simulator 2013 by Bossa Studios.
I know I've been waiting for that for a while, anyway. This video was sent in from the recent Global Game Jam, an indie meetup where developers have 48 hours to build a game. Any game. The theme at this game jam? "Ouroboros," the snake eating itself. Or, as the presenter here says, "Basically, a snake fellating…
How can a game made over the course of a weekend remind me of Rez and Crayon Physics Deluxe? By sending me soaring through the universe with simple controls and quirky hand-drawn artwork. Made by a team of 5, The Universe Within puts you in control of a pixelated dot that you need to steer through obstacles as it…
Three developers from Cryptic Studios participated in last weekend's Global Game Jam, the festival that challenges participants to create a game from scratch in just 48 hours. They built this time-lapse video, compressing two days of work into seven minutes.
The video is of Forrester showing GNILLEY this weekend at Global Game Jam Sydney 2010. Looks like he screams "GO!" to get the thing started, and from there, well, see and hear for yourself. It's hilarious. His creation took the festival's Most Original award.
