The Mount and Blade empire began with a forum post

Mouse controls like those pioneered by Mount and Blade have deepened and evolved, reappearing in games like Chivalry: Medieval Warfare , For Honor , and Kingdom Come: Deliverance . "There weren't many action games that played without magic," Yavuz said. Players picked Mount and Blade up immediately and spread it around, funding development and building a fanbase and a community at the same time. Looking back on 10 years of Mount and Blade, the first thing that Yavuz feels is anxiety. Mount and B

Fort Triumph has been described as "fantasy XCOM" by BioShock director Ken Levine, who apparently backed its successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2017, and who am I to argue with Ken Levine?

A lot of Fort Triumph looks familiar—grid-based, turn-based combat, the three staple fantasy classes with the addition of the wild card savage class—but it stands o

Pay what you want for surreal adventure game You Left Me

You Left Me is a short, sad adventure game "about loneliness and loss," as creator Angela He puts it. It was one of 3,053 games created earlier this month at Ludum Dare 41, the group's latest 48-hour game jam, which focused on combining two "incompatible" genres. For He's part, she made a stunning, surreal adventure game complete with a "chat-speaking cyclopic cat and moon that tells dad jokes." As He explains on itch, You Left Me has five possible endings, with an average playthrough lasting fi

Black Mesa comes closer to completion with a new ‘Xen Engine’ patch

The fan-made Half-Life remake Black Mesa took another step toward completion over the weekend with the release of a Xen engine patch that fixes a number of issues including freezing and crashes on Radeon 300, 400, and 500 series video cards.

Official Russia World Cup 2018 game confirmed as a free expansion to FIFA 18

This year’s official FIFA World Cup videogame has been confirmed for a release date of 29 May – and, breaking with convention, it’ll be a free expansion to FIFA 18 rather than a standalone game.
