Kickstart This! Sulphur Nimbus: Hel’s Elixir

With the unfortunate cancellation of Arc Continuum, we’ve reached the last of our recent spurt of Kickstarter games, which hails from Norwegian developer Oddwarg, AKA Oddvar Hungnes, creator of indie hits like Eggman Hates Furries, Super Sawman, and Patapony. Hungnes has a distinguished and anime-like style that can be seen in all of his games, as well as on his Deviant Art page. And now he’s bringing his latest venture, Sulphur Nimbus: Hel’s Elixir, to the crowdfunding circuit.

Warpback: What We Played in September 2016


We here at Warp Zoned had a busy month of gaming this past September. For the most part, we dug into our backlogs, but with our Senior Editor at PAX West, there were a lot of newer games on the list as well! Hit the jump to see just what we were up to for the last few weeks. (more…)

Kickstart This! Magicland

After Pokemon Go became an instant phenomenon, I was honestly expecting to read about a slew of upcoming augment reality games. But Magicland is the first I have seen, and while it could be accused of riffing on Niantic’s catch ‘em all game, it has more in common with other, more divisive titles like Spore and No Man’s Sky. It may be a little rough around the edges, but any game that might enthrall kids and get them outside playing could be a good thing.

Let’s go exploring! (more…)

Kickstart This! Ultra Captain & The Great Piratey Space Escape

We continue our crowdfunding adventure with the latest Kickstart This! title, the highly-addictive Ultra Captain & The Great Piratey Space Escape. It is the first title from brand new developer Killed Soda, another Canadian outfit based in the lovely sounding Iroquois Falls. Led by their own intrepid captain, Jesse Cybolsky, their five year mission is to create fun, challenging games that are filled with interesting and hilarious moments to really pull players into the experience. So let’s see what makes this project so promising.

Kickstart This! Z’Isle

There are so many ambitious games on Kickstarter right now, and I seem to have missed them all while being snowed under with non-gaming related work (and because I have literally just finished Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, my September obsession). But fear not, dear readers, for I shall be covering them all in the very near future!

There are five projects live at the moment that I absolutely adore for very different reasons. Ultra Captain is a fun-filled space ship manager. Magicland is hopping onto the AR wagon with a game that blends Pokemon Go and Spore. ARC Continuum is a third-person sci-fi shooter set in an epic, rich new world where you have the power to manipulate time. There is also Sulphur Nimbus, an acid-induced flying game featuring a multi-coloured hippogriff, which is possibly a first for any game.

Right now, though, it’s time to enter the zombie-infested world of Z’Isle, a tactical turn-based cyclepunk rpg. Yes, you read that right, cyclepunk!

The Games of September 2016


After a seemingly endless Summer, the Fall is finally here! That means we’ll soon be treated to dozens of new games, and not enough time to play them all. Thankfully, the Warp Zoned staff is here to help you sort through September’s new releases, and that includes all the re-releases that publishers are lining up for the next four weeks. (more…)

Warpback: What We Played in August 2016


This Summer has been dry… and I’m not just talking about the weather. Last month, the NPD Group announced that Grand Theft Auto V, a game that was released almost three years ago, was July’s best-selling game. But your friendly neighborhood Warp Zoned staff still plenty of new games to play last month, including the divisive No Man’s Sky and the crime-fighting Batman: The Telltale Series.

What else did we play? Find out after the break. (more…)
