Only a handful of titles are available at the moment including Solitaire HD, ... Read More »
For those looking to look back to traditional American wood paneled station wagons, porn style mustaches, and punishingly difficult puzzlers, look no further than Serial Cleaner.

Feeling like Hotline Miami and offering some nostalgia of Metal Gear Solid, you are expected to avoid police, collect evidence, load dead bodies in your station wagon, and vacuum up blood (wonder if that actually ...

Developed by Trendy Entertainment, Dungeon Defenders II is a free to play game that gives addicting gameplay, great character designs with deep customization, and lots of action in a social and interactive world. There is a lot of attention needed as there are still a bunch of gameplay hampering bugs making Dungeon Defender II a rare unpolished diamond. Dungeon Defenders II takes ... Read More »
The indie surge has been significant over the last decade. With Xbox Live Arcade leading the charge for small developers, we’ve seen a slew of classic titles over the years that may of otherwise never came to be.

And with every good title we also saw something best left alone. Prolific titles have been a clear influence for A Walk in the Dark. Super Meat Boy and Limbo being two primary examples. ...

Some racers are not like the others. Lightfield from the four man indie studio Lost in the Garden definitely fits into this category. The developers claim that this is a hyper futuristic racer and from the launch trailer it is very hard to disagree. Lightfield is a racer that doesn't need roads, or walls, or guides of any kind. You are free to find your own way along the course. This is achieved by your ship having the ability to stick to any surface just by the touch of a button. This looks to make for a very unique and ... Read More »
