Telltale Games

Consoles, PCs, handhelds, Facebook, smartphones — the world of gaming is becoming increasingly confusing and fragmented, but don’t worry, we’re here to simplify things for you. Each week I’ll rattle off five games I think you might want to check out this week. Keep in mind, these articles aren’t meant to be comprehensive lists of everything coming out that week so much as a nice rounded tasting menu. So, let’s get to it…

The Last Tinker: City of Colors (PC, Mac & Linux, May 12th)

Miss colorful 3D platformers in the Mario 64 or Jak & Daxter vein? Well, then The Last Tinker is the game for you. You play as a boy named Koru who must stop a dark force known as The Bleakness from destroying Colortown. So yes, this is a 3D platformer where you’re literally fighting against the scourge of grey-brown grittiness. How can you not love that?

This Week’s Time Travelling Platformer

Super Time Force (Xbox 360 & Xbox One, May 14th)

Want to play a game that’s one part Contra and one part Gunstar Heroes with the art style of Fez? Oh, and also there’s time travel? Well, you’re in luck, because Super Time Force is all those things! Basically, once you die (and you’ll die a lot) you can rewind and replay a level with your own ghost as a co-op partner — the more you fail the more “partners” you get. Don’t worry, it’ll make sense once you actually play the game.
