Born Punk is a cyberpunk adventure game with a twist, now on Kickstarter

Eevi Rinasdottir is having the worst morning. Her head is throbbing from a night of drinking, she’s missing her left hand, and some mysterious yet oddly helpful entity has taken control of her cat.

Feudal Alloy review: Just keep slashing

Feudal Alloy review
Feudal Alloy's weird premise doesn't go anywhere, but the combat and visuals create a Metroidvania you can, quite literally, easily get lost in.
