I can’t wait to tell you, fellow human person, about this game which I have learned about. It is an asymmetrical science fiction multiplayer murder mystery with absolutely no aliens in it at all. You might think from these screenshots and this trailer, starring Terrible Voice Man, that it is an FPS inspired by The Thing and Alien and that there are clearly monstrous fleshy alien lifeforms in it. But you are wrong. There are certainly no aliens here and I am certainly not one of them. What a pity. How about some regular human long-jump instead? That is a popular game in our society.
What’s your favourite thing about spacetime? Mine is that it goes wobbly. In All The Delicate Duplicates [official site], we are promised that wobbliness will occur. It will tell the story of John, a computer engineer, as he inherits a bunch of strange objects from ‘Aunt Mo’. Along with his daughter Charlotte, he starts to notice that the objects – glass bottles, lanterns, illustrations – all have some kind of otherworldly properties. It isn’t long before things get weird. Come watch the trailer after the jump.
Kelvin and the Infamous Machine [official site] looks like the sort of simple, light, and mildy quirky adventure fit for the summer gaming season. The game stars Kelvin, who’s a bit of a dunce. He serves as lab assistant to Dr. Edwin Lupin, who, while once probably a pretty nice guy, goes off the deep end when his time machine (which looks suspiciously like a shower) becomes the laughing stock of the scientific community. Kelvin becomes our unlikely hero when he’s forced to stop Lupin from travelling back in time to interfere with history’s great minds and their world-changing works.
Last month we warned you that Human: Fall Flat [official site] was coming out. And did you listen? No. And now look. This wobbly physics puzzle game, starring a drunken Gang Beast lookalike called Bob, is all over Steam and you are all like, “whoa, where did this come from, dude?” and “oh the wee man can’t hold the stick” and “haha I’m having such a great time”. Well, don’t blame us when you’re having fun throwing things through a window with your friend in co-op mode. We tried to tell you.
I remember simpler times when Dota and CS:GO items existed to give our wizards fancy hats and our AWPs hideous paintjobs. Now they’re used as chips in unofficial gambling. They’ve sparked lawsuits accusing Valve of enabling illegal underage gambling and seen scandals over YouTubers being secretly paid to promote skin gambling sites – or even secretly owning the sites they promoted. Oh dear. What’s new in the world of skin gambling this week? Well, Valve started sending “cease and desist” letters and more players and YouTubers became implicated in shenanigans.
If this sounds dry, don’t worry: someone named Karl Quackenbush is involved.
