How He-Man, The Walking Dead, and Invincible came to #IDARB: A Love Story

When it comes to making games, it’s good to have friends. Last year when #IDARB launched, we got a lot of love from fans and notice from the press when it was downloaded more than a million times its first week. One of our longtime friends, Skybound Interactive President Dan Murray, visited our studio around that time and mentioned how much he was loving the game. With an update already in the planning stages, we talked about the possibility of doing some Skybound-related DLC. Instead of just making it specific to "The Walking Dead", we thought we could do something fun with Skybound’s beloved Invincible comic as well. So we set out to make two really great maps, one based on each comic... Read more

Time is On My Side: Hands-on with Remedy’s Quantum Break

After all of these years, the team at Remedy still knows more just about anyone about crafting a compelling narrative. It’s probably no surprise that the people behind story-driven games like Alan Wake and Max Payne are looking to tell another tale with their upcoming game Quantum Break, hitting Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusively on April 5. What did surprise me during my time with the game’s first act was just how deep the narrative rabbit hole is, and how well the story meshes with the intriguing gameplay realities of its time-warped universe. After only a few hours, I’m already looking forward to playing through Quantum Break multiple times just to see how deep that rabbit hole... Read more

Split-Screen FPS Screencheat is Hitting Xbox One on March 1

We here at Samurai Punk have been hard at work on Screencheat, the split screen FPS that centers around screencheating (looking at the screens of other players to locate their position). We’re excited to announce that Screencheat will be coming to Xbox One on March 1, 2016! In Screencheat, all players are invisible, forcing you to look at the other screens to find your opponents to hunt them. We were inspired to create it by all of the split screen games we played as kids, including Halo. We used to sit around and screencheat each other all the time so we decided to turn this controversial tactic on its head and make it the core mechanic of the game. We hope that the result is a truly... Read more

Hitman Brings Episodic Assassinations and Endless Options

The Hitman series is on its sixth entry now, and the fan-favorite gameplay formula is a winning one. The simple joy of tracking down a target and taking them out as stealthily (or as bombastically) as you can isn’t something that’s easy for anyone to get tired of, but as games of all genres continue to evolve and expand, the development team at IO Interactive continue to update Hitman in new and unique ways. IO Interactive is billing Hitman (yes, that’s its title – clean and simple!) as the first fully episodic game in the series. It operates much the same as other episodic titles, meaning that when Hitman launches on March 11, you’ll be able to play the first episode, and can... Read more

Unravel: What Makes this Puzzling Platformer Unique?

Electronic Arts may be known for juggernauts like Madden NFL, Battlefield, and Dragon Age... but in the case of the all-new Unravel, the publisher knew that it had to stick up for the little guy. During last year’s E3 Expo, Patrick Söderlund, Executive Vice President of EA Studios, revealed that he was so impressed by the game when he first saw it that he immediately knew EA had to have it. Söderlund had come a long way to see this hidden gem – to Coldwood Interactive, a 14-person indie studio in northern Sweden. And we’re talking way north in a city called Umeå, closer to the Arctic Circle than Stockholm and on the same latitude as Iceland, Siberia, and Alaska. A studio’s... Read more

The Five Biggest Reasons We’re Loving Cobalt

It's finally here: Cobalt, developed by the Oxeye Game Studio team, is a 2D action-platformer/shooter/adventure/arena fighter... and, well, it’s kinda all of those. Check out five of the reasons we’re loving one of the coolest little games of 2016. The Acrobatic, Bullet-time Combat System The defining trait of Cobalt is its combat, which involves a mix of firearms, melee combat, and explosives. When enemies take a shot at your robot, time slows down – allowing you to roll and parry the attacks, and get a few shots out yourself. It all feels like a martial arts film starring a cute little robot guy. The Co-op Story Mode Science-fiction humor and reflex tests abound in... Read more

Uncovering the Secrets of the Swedish Countryside in Unravel

Swedish game developer Coldwood Interactive’s adorable new 2D puzzle-platformer, Unravel, is quite the unusual game. It takes place in its creators’ homeland, where a little red ball of yarn – named, aptly enough, Yarny – explores the Swedish countryside. Yarny is both quirky and tiny, meaning that even mundane objects like chairs and fruit appear huge, let alone the relatively gigantic boulders and trees that pop up along the way. Yarny unravels himself in order to create bridges and traverse gaps that range from small drains to imposing chasms. He can throw the front end of the yarn like a grappling hook, or grab the yarn that trails behind him and attach it to things. This... Read more

Zombie Vikings! Yeah, that might sound like a silly name at first, but just remember Napoleon Dynamite and his Liger. You simply can’t have too much of two good things. Zombies + Vikings = total niceness! I’m from Zoink, an indie game studio from the cold dark of Sweden. You might have heard about our previous title, Stick It to The Man, but besides zany adventure games we also love couch co-op games and this is our attempt to combine great hack ’n’ slash gameplay with our love of humor and story.

Cooperative Shooter Spareware Coming Soon to Xbox One

Spareware is a cooperative top-down shooter set in a future dystopian metropolis of Helsinki. We’ve designed Spareware to be a game for people who just want a fun little shooter to play while hanging out with friends, without compromising the challenging hardcore gameplay elements. Because of the challenge, you may have to start over multiple times, but it won’t get boring thanks to our procedural world generation system with multiple different archetypes of levels.
