The man behind Intrusion 2, Alexey “vap” Abramenko, is working alongside Aleks Nikonov to bring us a new rad-looking shmup called Jetpack Squad. Development is being done on Unity and the game is expected to at least hit PC, Mac and Linux when it’s eventually finished.

Continue reading Listen to 2 New Tracks from Hotline Miami 2’s Soundtrack
Designer Ben Esposito is making Donut County, a game with a small hole that swallows all the things and a donut delivery raccoon. WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED TO KNOW?
A few weeks back I became a Deep Dungeons of Doom devotee, marveled at how small and super fun this game was, which then lead me to ask who made the designs and animations behind it.
