September 25 – October 1

We first heard about Cuphead years ago, and the art style is eye-catching enough for me to remember it. It evokes classic Popeye cartoons with, apparently, hand-drawn cel animation, but reading that it’s heavily influenced by Contra pushed it over my bar into Game of the Week territory.

I’m also interested to see if the character design has any gameplay implications, because a character based on earthenware is one of those head-scratchers. Do the enemies represent people before they’ve had coffee in the morning? Do the weapons have to do with diners somehow? Was the game written in Java?

I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to finding out. Cuphead gets my pick of the week.




Too Long; Didn't Play: Rise and Shine

This game should come with a warning label: Best Consumed Vicariously, because it’s a gorgeous, funny, polished game that’s just too hard to be enjoyable. Best leave it to the wunderkind on Youtube, that way I don’t have to watch all the fail that happens on the way to the win.

In a world where everything is either a sequel, a spiritual successor (which is like a sequel, but without grounds to sue) or a re-release of a game with a misleading title (No fighting game with a jump button is even remotely like Tekken, and shame on Nintendo for trying to fool people!), it's nice to know there are some original ideas still sleeting through the universe.

The Prototype, which lacks a unique or original title, at least goes for some interesting ideas. Part visual mystery novel, part RPG, it follows the story of a scientist who builds a time machine to solve the murder he was wrongly accused of committing. It combines over-played-16 bit JRPG graphics with striking hand-drawn character portraits and a promising story to grab my nod for Game of the Week.

FUGL is an open-world flapping-simulator where you play a voxelized bird doing … something. The game description says “make your own adventure, with no time constraints or set goals,” which usually means the game developer learned just enough Unity to move a camera and called it a day. Whether that’s the case here or not, FUGL has a pretty and unique art style, and as Wander’s biggest fan , I don’t mind making my own fun in a beautiful world. Heck, that’s what life is all about, isn’t it?

The UNPRNNCBL game FUGL gets my nod for Game of the Week. What? It’s not like you seriously thought I was going to go with Divinity: Original Sin 2, did you?




Too Long; Didn't Play: Rig 'n' Roll

I’m a big fan of Euro Truck Simulator and American Truck Simulator, and that’s a problem. But not in the way you’re probably thinking.
