Tom Francis of Gunpoint fame is working on a new project:

While anything can change between now and when it launches, the walkthrough video gives us a peek at a pair of scenarios involving two of six planned characters – Witch Cop and Riot Priest. The former does things by the book, so she gains mana for using the minimum required force to take down a suspect. Sure, you could launch that guy out a window, but smacking him into a wall with exactly the required force to knock him out will give her a major magical buff.

The developers say that the game is inspired by BioShock and System Shock 2, which is handy because it’s being led by Jonathan Chey, co-founder of Irrational Games, the studio behind both.
Started playing this, having fun so far, great game! :sweet:
No sig due to budget cuts.

Yes, that Superhot. The slow-mo bullet ballet has clearly done very well in the old sales department, and the developers have set-up a ‘SUPERHOT PRESENTS’ initiative that offers both mentoring and money to games they want to see being made. Frog Detective 2: The Case of the Invisible Wizard developer Grace Bruxner is being supported in what they’re calling the “crossover no one asked for”.
No idea about the game, but the story is worth reading for a giggle.

It's hilarious how popular this game has become. I've seen economists tweet about it FFS.

today he took on Goose Game with a full costume controller. The goose honks when Rudeism honks into his orange beak. The goose waddles when Rudeism waddles in his flippers. The goose flaps its wings when Rudeism flaps his arms.
