Contra Meets Starship Troopers In Co-op Platformer Hive Jump

Graphite Lab’s first crack at a Kickstarter for its side-scrolling, co-op shooter Hive Jump didn’t go so well, amassing just $US6157 of its lofty $US75,000 goal. Now, six months later, the developer is having another go, this time with external funding, updated visuals and a thumbs-up from Valve to sell the game on Steam. Suffice it to say, it’s already doing a lot better the second time round.

Tom Francis, the man behind indie-hit Gunpoint, was recently inspired to record himself playing a Gunpoint “rip-off” called Ronin. The thing is, he not only enjoyed it, but didn’t think it deserved its title as a flagrant copy.


League Of Legend's Newest Champion, Broken Down In Eight Minutes

Though Gnar was revealed last month, Riot took the time today to visually explain what the prehistoric champion is all about. Watching this video, you’ll get a good sense of Gnar’s moves, his combos and how Gnar should be used.


What A Twin Peaks Video Game Might Have Looked Like

Ah, yes, Twin Peaks — David Lynch’s famous psychological thriller. It’s such a shame it never got a video game.


Hearthstone Boss Accidentally Attacks Himself
