Supergiant 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.

Project Temporality (PC, May 20th)

Project Temporality is a puzzle-action game in vein of Portal that has you playing with both time and cloning. You can do something like, say, push a button, then reverse time and clone yourself — the original version of you will still go and push that button, but then the new version of you can run through the door that opens when that button is pushed. Basically Project Temporality lets you play co-op with yourself (if you know what I mean).

This Week’s JRPG

Drakengard 3 (PS3, May 20th)

Square-Enix’s hack n’ slash RPG series returns after a nearly decade-long break. Drakengard 3 really seems to be ratcheting up the Japanese grindhouse weirdness, with a sexy female protagonist with a flower for an eye and tons of gore. The Drakengard games don’t tend to get great reviews, but the series definitely has its dedicated cult of fans, so you might want to give this one a look if you don’t mind some hacking and/or slashing.
