Who’s a good boy? WHO’S A GOOD BOY? I’m...the good boy....?
Stardew Valley is the humble farming game that’s taken Steam by storm. People are in love with it to the point that they’re buying legit copies of the game for pirates. They’re also modding the crap out of it. All because one guy decided the PC needed its own grown-up version of Harvest Moon. Yes, one guy.
While the explosive growth in popularity for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has mostly made the Fnatics and the Na’Vis of the world into esports stars, the women’s competitive scene has often been an overlooked cornerstone of the game. That’s finally starting to change as some of esports’ biggest sponsors and…
There’s been a whoooole lot of VR at GDC last week. Every third developer session was about making things for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and/or PlayStation VR. Of the many major questions about these headsets’ comfort and viability, the one I kept hearing is: can I really wear this thing over normal glasses?
Welcome to San Andreas Streaming Deer Cam, where viewers can watch a very special deer wander the wilds (and streets) of Los Santos. Frolicking along the sidewalk, stopping traffic, getting shot up by the cops, he does it all.

According to Eurogamer, Chaos 3SK has unveiled 99 as the level cap for the Dark Zone’s separate leveling system, which they achieved in addition to the max level of…
In Ark: Survival Evolved, your character just kinda poops sometimes. It’s a little alarming at first, in the same way that I imagine pooping for the first time in real life is. The origin of that funny mechanic? Grimly serious.
Recently at GDC I got to try out Valve’s new collection of VR game vignettes, The Lab. It was cool. It was also... another set of scattered ideas. It’s been years since Valve released a big game.
If game critic and video-maker Jim Sterling has a nemesis, it’s game developer Digital Homicide. That name might not sound familiar, as they’re a small studio that has released a couple of games on Steam. But they may soon enter notoriety after this month’s unprecedented actions.
We asked one question to the winning game developers at last night’s Game Developers Choice and Independent Games Festival awards: “What is the one game that inspired you to go into the creation of video games?” Here’s what they said:

Elsinore is a game where you play as Ophelia from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. She’s stuck in a time loop, ala Groundhog Day or Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Her goal? To prevent Hamlet, a Shakespearean tragedy so tragic that it borders on ludicrous, from ending tragically.
