Let me just quote the developer here to see if you’re interested - separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak - “Starting with a backdrop of endless, procedurally generated terrain, Proven Lands combines 3D, science fiction, survival, sandbox, roguelike and RPG elements with an AI-driven meta game - like a game master - and on top of all that: modding!"
Still here? Good, because Proven Lands looks freakin’ awesome.
This won’t be a game for the colourblind. Perlinoid’s a game about blending and separating colours to advance through alien environments. We’ve only a short video of in-game footage to work from but in 30 seconds we get a pretty good idea of the puzzles and scope this mechanic has.
Watch it and prepare to have your brain scratched.
Floating islands, steampunk airships, pirates. 20,000 Leagues Above the Sky has tapped straight into the Davy Jones’ Locker that is my heart. Taking nods from Baldur’s Gate, Firefly, and Studio Ghibli, the game has you fly between different floating skyports, picking up odd jobs and brigands, all the while learning about the strange world you inhabit.
Block holes, the gravity well left behind by a dead star, draw into them everything from dust particles, to light, to milkshake. Under immense force a black hole will crush those particles down into super dense molecules. Picture the densest, darkest brownie you’ve ever eaten - the kind with big chocolate chunks in it - that’s nothing like a black hole but it’s hardly wasted time to think about a chocolate brownie.
Way to Singularity puts you in the pilots of a ship aiming right for the centre of such an entity (a black hole, not a brownie), and it’s great fun. It’s free, too.

If, like Tim, you’ve fallen in love with Edge of Reality’s comic shooter, Loadout, then you’ll be glad to know the game’s getting nothing but better with it’s slew of planned updates. Reality have published a roadmap of upcoming features, all of which expand on multitude of weapons and maps available - who’d have thought a game with a gun called the Nutpunch Project could get any more enticing.
Chat 'N Slash is a game made in one week that is a play on the much successful TwitchPlaysPokemon, but is built specifically for the Twitch community and rather not on a already existing game. This gives us the opportunity to customize the game as the community seems fit, and constantly work...
In a Rust weekly update, Garry Newman’s laid out Facepunch’s future plans for the Darwinian survival game. The game hasn’t seen any major updates recently, which Newman apologises for, and he notes that the team are working on getting them out quicker. But that’s going to take longer than a week.
In the mean time, there are future plans. Plans for farming, a Team Fortress 2-style item editor and a new UI.
Hello PC Games N Team,
My name is James with Glass Knuckle Games and we’ve just announced the full release of our procedurally generated 2D murder mystery game, Noir Syndrome. You play as a detective who needs to gather clues by investigating locations across a city in order to ultimately...
Over the last year, Infested Planet has been one of those games I keep firing up whenever I’m at a loss for how to spend a few minutes. It’s the gaming equivalent of an earworm: something simple and catchy that I never quite appreciated how much I liked until I realized I’d invested several hours in it over the course of a week.
Today, it comes out of Early Access and emerges as a full-grown real-time tactics game, one with heavy overtones of Starship Troopers and maybe just a hint of StarCraft.
On behalf of my team I would like to introduce you to our post-apocalyptic baby - Never Future.

Ever get bored with being human?
Maybe you’d prefer to be part of an empire that spans the stars, or to be born with psychic powers, or live a life of glamour that lasts forever? Or you might just have a hankering...
Collector’s editions frequently border on the uninspired - have a cloth map of the game world, or a plastic statue, or a key chain. It’s useless tat that, frankly, you’re unlikely to want to have on display around your house.
Now, a goat? That’s actually got some use. Goat Simulator’s collector’s edition was going to have a goat if only there was a company that shipped goats worldwide.
“Your friends are all bastards." That’s the message Powerhoof seem to be sending with their game Crawl. One player controls a dungeon explorer as he moves from tomb to tomb collecting loot, the other three are disgruntled spirits trying to kill them. Possessing traps or using arcane symbols to rise as a monster, the spirits have a lot of tools at their command for splatting the human.
However, whoever kills the human is resurrected themselves and must fight off the other three players.
Vlambeer’s hectic retro dogfighter, Luftrausers, feels like it’s been a long time coming, and not just because of its sepia filter and minimalist aesthetic. It was announced in March, last year, and was said to be coming out “soon". A year later, we’re getting our dirty mitts on it.
The developer revealed the release date of March 18th on Twitter, complete with a shuddering vine. The battle begins.

The existence of digital tabletop games is one of the best things to come out of this confusing universe. Sometimes I like to think they are just created for me. Most of my local chums don’t care for tabletop gaming at all, even if they care about video games. So it’s rare that I can sit down and play anything, whether it’s chess or Dungeons & Dragons.
Berserk’s Tabletop Simulator's premade games cater to fans of the more traditional tabletop games, like backgammon and checkers, but that’s the only traditional thing about this multiplayer, customisable sandbox. There are no rules. This might seem a bit bonkers when games are all about rules, but Berserk hopes that without restrictions, players will create their own rules and make their own games.
