Yeah, this is definitely one to play when you get into work.
First you and your Lego-ish chums run around building a violent playpen, and then you run amok inside it while bearing arms. It isn’t so much about digging your own grave, as designing your own cutesy-pie mausoleum…
Cheap joke about it being a bit like an night on the town in Southend etc.
Anyway, it's brilliant and smart and here's why you should care.
We spoke to creator David Edery to find out what makes Triple Town different.
When Lewis Carroll wrote Alice’s Adventure In Wonderland he was generally pleased with his work, but perhaps had the nagging feeling that the novel lacked a little something.
Close to 150 years later, indie developer Bell Brothers (which is comprised entirely of twins Dan and John Bell) put their finger on exactly what was missing.
Well, to be more precise, they put your finger on exactly what was missing: the ability to scratch, fast-forward and rewind the narrative in the style of a vinyl DJ.

Your mission? Why, to touch the hand of your beloved. The problem? Everything you touch turns to gold – from the ground you walk on, to the blocks overhead, to the pretty lady you’re in love with. Thankfully, however, a quick dabble in a block of blue will nullify your golden touch – at least until the... read more
Want to get into indie games but don't know where to start? Well, problem solved – here is where to start. The organisers of the 14th annual Independent Games Festival have announced the finalists in this year's awards event.
Russian studio ZeptoLab’s Cut The Rope fast established itself in 2010 as one of iOS gaming’s big hitters.
The cutesy physics puzzler may not have Angry Birds’ cultural penetration, but it’s remained at the top of Apple’s download charts for a huge length of time now, attention that has resulted in a collaboration with Microsoft to bring the game to browsers for free this week.
Launched yesterday at cuttherope.ie, the game has been developed in HTML5 with the purpose of showing off Internet Explorer 9′s support for the tech.
“In bringing Cut the Rope to a new platform,... read more
