Quadrilateral Cowboy, a long-in-development hacking game from the brilliant designer behind Thirty Flights of Loving and Gravity Bone, hits on July 25. It’ll launch first on Windows, with Mac and Linux in September.
I played more games in 2012 than any other year of my life. It was a weird—but thoroughly wonderful—year, and one that upset a lot of my expectations. Games I'd assumed would be amazing fell short of the mark, while others came out of nowhere to become fast favorites.
I played a game that lasted only 10 minutes and it was glorious. It also cost me five bucks. Yes: I am saying that a game that amounts to one dollar per two minutes was worth the investment.
