Tokyo Jungle, confirmed at E3 for a Western release! 

I have no idea what’s going on in this game, aside from the detail that you play as an animal in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo, but I know I WANT IT.

If you’re a sales hound, today is the day for you! Over 400 games are available at sale price thanks to the Because We May sale, initiated by World of Goo's Ron Carmel and a handful of our favorite Indie devs. Discounted games include many of my personal favorites! Such as…

And so many more! In addition to iPhone/iPad/Apple games, there are plenty of games across Android, Steam, PC and more. Just check out the site!

Oh, and I also did the logo and pattern illustration. So that’s pretty cool too. *toots a horn that belongs to me* 

Well what do you know! Here’s the first trailer for Ron Gilbert’s new game at Double Fine The Cave, an action adventure puzzle game. The ability to switch between characters is givin’ me a definite Maniac Mansion vibe. Looks great! Can’t wait!

Adventure Game legend Ron Gilbert (aka the Grumpy Gamer) has given us a sneak peek at the motley crew of playable characters featured in his upcoming adventure game atDouble Fine. In addition to The Scientist (my favorite!) featured here, there are The Twins, The Knight, The Adventurer, The Time Traveler, The Hillbilly and The Monk.
A great set of of characters, and lo and behold four out of eight are female! That’s 50% of the playable characters! Pretty neat.

Jiminy Crickets, this looks good! I never got around to playing Epic Mickey =, but I’m all in favor for Epic Mickey: The Power of Illusion, upcoming for the 3DS. With more than a heavy nod to Caste of Illusions, I’m getting that warm-n-fuzzy nostalgia feel with these screenshots. Hope it turns out to be a winner!
