It took a few years, but Nordic's plans for de Blob, created by Melbourne's now-defunct Blue Tongue Entertainment, have finally come to fruition. Snagged back in 2014 during the THQ firesale it was unclear what was to happen to the popular franchise, but now we know — a revamped PC version, which you can pick up now from Steam or GOG.

Over the last few weeks, a YouTube channel has been uploading a Let's Play of a game called Petscop. On the surface, Petscop appears to be a peppy animal collecting game that was never officially released. Hiding underneath that, though, is a dark and bizarre game that references real-life child killings. Nobody can tell if Petscop is real, but it might not matter.
Dwarf Fortress is the insanely complicated and goblin-infested procedurally generated gift that keeps on giving. There are plenty of stories to be found in the world of Zach and Tarn Adams' decade-old, ASCII creation, but none are quite as fascinating as the mystery of the dead cats.
Here's a blast from the past — behind-the-scenes motion capture footage for Silent Hill 2 from almost 20 years ago. It focuses on the perhaps the most critical revelation in the game's narrative, so consider this your one and only spoiler warning! For everyone else, enjoy this rare peek behind the curtain.
We're halfway through season three of the Rocket League Championship Series and to celebrate, several teams are participating in an invitational where the maps and settings were determined by viewers. Opening the action were Atelier and Denial Esports, who would soon be plunged into the sound and fury of community-nominated novelty game modes.
It feels like only yesterday that Creative Assembly's Total War: Warhammer, based on Games Workshop's mammoth franchise, was released. In fact, it was less than a year ago. Yet, here we are, with publisher Sega announcing a sequel is under development. There's no release date, just that it'll be this year, though we do have a trailer.
Blizzard's Hearthstone is about to undergo a monumental shift — first a new expansion, Journey To Un'Goro, containing 135 cards, will hit on April 6 (give or take a day). Secondly, a bunch of Standard-legal cards will rotate into "Wild", making them unavailable for official tournament play. Before these events happen, you'll want to make sure you're maxing out your rewards, including free dust, gold and packs.
The first day of April is always a difficult 24 hours to navigate if you want to avoid being tripped up by some zany product or service announcement from the likes of Google, Microsoft or, as we've seen today, Uncle Tobys and James Squire. To help you stay ahead of the game, we've selected the delicious (and not-so-delicious) fake stuff and put it all in the one place.
Everyone's favourite real-time strategy game is getting a face-lift. As Blizzard president Mike Morhaime announced at this weekend's I <3 StarCraft event in South Korea, the original game and its Brood War expansion are both getting an HD overhaul and being repackaged as StarCraft: Remastered, due out later this winter.
Prey may unashamedly be influenced by the likes of System Shock and Dead Space, but honestly, we could do with more of these sorts of games. With the title's May release fast approaching, publisher Bethesda has been ramping up the content drops. First we got a healthy chunk of gameplay and now more details about the characters and narrative, courtesy of the developers at Arkane Studios.
Physical controls are all the rage, but they've got nothing on sound! OK, they have everything on sound, but that hasn't stopped Andreas Refsgaard and Lasse Korsgaard, a pair of "interaction designers and creative coders", coming up with this experiment where one can play Wolfenstein 3D with just their mouth. Loud noise warning: Be sure to turn down your speakers before hitting play!
The dream of home automation. A much-talked about subject, but one few realise to any practical extent. Not so for the ingenious Allen Pan who, after being inspired by the Nintendo Switch and the recent release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, decided to rig his house to respond to tunes from Ocarina of Time, played from — you guessed it — an ocarina.
The Nintendo Switch is all the rage right now, sure, but let's not forget the company's classic portable gaming device — the Game Boy. Admittedly, it's so long in the tooth you could open tanks with its incisors, but it can still bring the fun, especially if someone decided to mod the crap out of it to make it the ultimate take-with-you device. Like, tiny.
Hayley last year described P.A.M.E.L.A. as "shiny, utopian horror" and going by the new trailer, that remains a solid assessment. But you don't have to take her word for it — the game is now in Early Access, giving you the opportunity to get killed in terrifying ways all on your own.
