Butterscotch Shenanigans makes some pretty neat games with tight gameplay and alarmingly hilarious graphics. The great art is the work of one half of Butterscotch, Sam Coster. The guys at Butterscotch posted some not great news today, the gist of which is that Sam has a bit of the cancer. They pinged us to say it was cool to tell you all about this for one very important reason – things are going to slow down a bit with regard to game development, so they're doing the community a solid by making Towelfight 2 free-to-play.
The newest title out of Gameloft is pretty self-explanatory. Tank Battles is about, you guessed it, tank battles. This game invites you to design and control your own custom war machine and fight your way through 80 top-down missions of increasing difficulty. Fighting computers not doing it for you? There's multiplayer too.
Tank Battles doesn't take a photo-realistic approach to the whole military warfare thing – it's a bit wacky and over-the-top.
Physics puzzlers aren't just about flinging birds across the screen – sometimes you need to build something. In fact, sometimes you need to build something really complicated and awesome. That's the trail blazed by Apparatus, and Principia is following its path. This game invites you to design bridges, towers, cars, rocket ships and more using over 150 different objects.
The trailer has some amazing stuff in it, but it also makes me feel slightly intimidated.
