Magicka: Wizard Wars

The first gameplay trailer for "Magicka: Wizard Wars" has been making the rounds for a few days. Timeliness notwithstanding, the original "Magicka" was so fun, and the uncontrolled mayhem promised by its unique spell system so intriguing, that I figure it warrants some attention.

Lioness

To continue this morning's theme of fizz-bang, turbo-intriguing Kickstarter games, I present, without further ado, Zak Ayle's "Lioness," a point-and-click adventure about a freelance journalist, the yakuza, time travel, a cigarette-smoking cat, and interdimensional coffee, all rendered in colorful, rotoscoped pixel art.
