Devil’s Bluff: Like Clue Where the Murderer Actually Gets to Murder

Devil’s Bluff: Like Clue Where the Murderer Actually Gets to Murder
One of the most annoying parts of playing Clue, for me, was to discover that in order to win I had to turn myself in. Also, why didn’t I know that I was the murderer? It makes no sense.

From Earth: A More Subtle Take on Figuring out an Alien Civilization

From Earth: A More Subtle Take on Figuring out an Alien Civilization
Normally, in games, alien cultures seem to be designed to be convenient, rather than plausible. Why is it that everybody but Hutts and Wookiees speaks English, regardless of the planet of origin or species. Here on Earth (only one planet) we have only one species using language (that we know of) and we have 6,909 living languages.

Impact Winter: Can You Survive 30 Days of Snow and Good Voice Acting?

Impact Winter: Can You Survive 30 Days of Snow and Good Voice Acting?
Eight years ago (in the game Impact Winter’s setting), an asteroid struck Manitoba. That was indeed bad, but the worst part was the amount of debris it kicked up into the atmosphere. As a result, the oceans froze over, the skies darkened, and snow covered everything.

That Which Sleeps: Play as an Evil Fantasy God Awakening to Conquer All

That Which Sleeps: Play as an Evil Fantasy God Awakening to Conquer All
There have been countless games, films, and novels written about a hero or group of heroes rising up to combat some great evil as it’s awakening and attempting to once more regain all of its evilness and power.

“Tetropolis” Is a Side-Scrolling Adventure Starring a Misshapen Tetris Block

“Tetropolis” Is a Side-Scrolling Adventure Starring a Misshapen Tetris Block
Tetris is one of the greatest games ever made. There’s something that fascinating, mesmerizing, and addictive about putting various blocks in perfectly fitting holes, even if the Tetris god never graces you with the line piece you need. 

Winnitron 1000 Arcade Cabinet: A Token of Hope from Indie Developers

Winnitron 1000 Arcade Cabinet: A Token of Hope from Indie Developers
The video game arcade cabinet is fast becoming a relic of a not so distant past, what with the rise of video game consoles and increasingly powerful and versatile portable video game systems. But a group of Canadian indie developers have turned to the iconic device to bolster their fledgling community.

Poopocalypse : Best Game Name of the Year

Poopocalypse : Best Game Name of the Year
While it certainly wouldn’t be the first game I’ve heard of where pooping is a central element (yeah, I can’t believe it either), but Poopocalypse definitely has the best name of the genre. From what I can tell, Wolpertinger Games‘ Xbox Live Indie game is all about pooping pidgeons.

Tales of Unspoken World: Like Canabalt, but 3d

Tales of Unspoken World: Like Canabalt, but 3d
I came across this unusual game over on IndieGames earlier today, and I have to say I like the way the early build is shaping up. A small independent game studio called Santa Ragione created Tales of Unspoken World after being inspired by this stylized case design from the Famicase art exhibit a few of years ago.

Dustforce!: Leap and Sweep Platforming

Dustforce!: Leap and Sweep Platforming
Watch out Mario, you’re not the only blue-collar platformer who’s also in the saving the world business. Currently in development by the Hitbox Team, Dustforce! stars a high-jumping, energetic sweeper. He hates dust and dirt so much that he won’t even touch gold coins until he’s cleaned the treasure chest where they’re stored, whereas Mario just leaves the rubble of the bricks he breaks in his wake.

Hero Core: Nothing but Plain Old Fun

Hero Core: Nothing but Plain Old Fun
Indie developer Daniel Remar’s upcoming PC game Hero Core is just about as old school as shooters and platformers get. The game sports Game Boy-era black and white graphics, and pays homage to earlier incarnations of Metroid and Mega Man.

Little Wheel Flash Game has Cool Visuals, Robots, Ambient Jazz – What’S Not to Like?

Little Wheel Flash Game has Cool Visuals, Robots, Ambient Jazz – What’S Not to Like?
While it’s not long, complex or difficult Little Wheel has a nice atmosphere and a unique charm. As GameSpy‘s Brian Miggels said, Little Wheel may be a bite-sized game, but it is nonetheless a complete package. Little Wheel has a simple story, amazing visuals and an even more outstanding soundtrack.

Don’T be Nervous Talking 2 Girls (Unless They Call the Cops) [Xbox 360]

Don’T be Nervous Talking 2 Girls (Unless They Call the Cops) [Xbox 360]
Did you know that all conversations with the ladies end either in “scoring” (somehow) or having the police called on your freaky ass? That’s what the world seems to boil down to in Don’t Be Nervous Talking 2 Girls, a product of Xbox Live’s indie games community. For a mere 80 Microsoft points ($1 USD), you can move through a number of dialogue screens, most of them refreshingly less stalkeriffic than the above, which I’m guessing indicates the end of your game.
