So many new games! It's like, why can't the future be here now? Or, why can't the games I'm bored with be not here while the exciting games I don't have be here? And why can't a normal day at the office be more like a video game?!
Yesyes to Nono - Here's a game you know you want. From Beardshaker Games, NonoCraft takes the NonoSparks picross formula we heart so much and turns it into a history-altering crafting/puzzle experience. Drs. Pix and Pox are remaking classic tales (with your help), the former wants to be as accurate as possible, while the latter is all about the mischief. Solve nonogram puzzles to progress the story, then decide which version you want to continue with: faithful adaptation, or mixed-up monstrosity. Combined with Beardshaker's usual dose of gorgeous artwork and we're ready to play, please! Look for NonoCraft later this year on multiple mobile (and non-mobile) platforms.
Keep on tiltin' - More good news! Tilt to Live developer One Man Left has announced a sequel to the wild arcade game to be released by the end of the year. Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous keeps the "avoid stuff as best you can while desperately hoping for a power-up" formula but adds more weapons, better visuals, a new scoring system, and, gasp, the color red!
Unmechanical goes mobile - Talwa Games' physics-heavy action puzzle game Unmechanical released in late 2012 to some very happy nods of approval. Now the game has worked its way to iOS devices, making a tidy home for itself on the mobile touch screen. Control a round robot flying through an underground factory, trying to find a way back to the surface. It looks like something unsettling happened here not too long ago, judging from the rockslides and blocked passages and all. But you don't have time to hover and ponder, you just want to get out. And as you soon discover, you're not exactly alone down here.
Pixel People getting more pixels and more people - An update to the massively awesome mobile simulation game Pixel People is coming soon, adding over 50 new jobs, nine new genes, and 40 new missions to complete. That's... that's a lot of stuff! Pixel People puts you in charge of rebuilding a starbound utopia from clones and cash. As the mayor of this newfound floating paradise, you'll be responsible both for building your town as you see fit and managing the incoming clones by splicing them with DNA you have on hand to create different types of people with different jobs.
