Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP Review

Once upon a time, a triumvirate of local talent assembled in an attempt to create something. That something is Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, as much an interactive art installation, music album and bit-nostalgia trip as it is an Apple iDevice game. No one was entirely sure what to expect from Sword & Sworcery, but the fact now remains that the "brave experiment" undertaken by Superbrothers, Capybara Games and Jim Guthrie is nothing short of a stunning success.

Tales from Space: About a Blob Review

What's not to like about blobs? Video games and globular protagonists have gone together like... well, two blobs do. Toronto-based indie developers DrinkBox Studios have been hard at work on Tales from Space: About a Blob for several years now, putting their own spin on blob-based gaming.
