Vap Games is Working on Jetpack Squad

Jetpack Squad from the Creators of Incursion 2

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.

Somehow it reminds me of Gunstar Heroes and Noitu Love 2, but with much more crazy stuff going down. I dig it.

Physics-based gameplay where everything affects everything and you can destroy pretty much anything you can shoot at? Che-wait, what? But, also, yes.  Continue reading Megasphere is a Roguelike Love Letter from Russia

Listen to 2 New Tracks from Hotline Miami 2's Soundtrack

The much anticipated Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, the sequel to 2012’s retro fuck ’em-up, is coming out next year and its soundtrack is as if not more anticipated than the game itself, which is why Devolver Digital is giving both a very special treatment.

Metro Clash: Developing a Public Brawl

Metro Clash: Developing a Public Brawl

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. That’s how I found Midio and Metro Clash, a new game with public transportation set right at the center of its action.
