You know, where you’re plagued by angry cats, you accidentally destroy a priceless artifact at your job, and then a bunch of mummies try to strangle you while you start turning into a cat yourself? The life of a museum security guard [...]

iDied: LIMBO is Out for iOS

Tweet The good thing about watching a scary movie or playing a terrifying game is that, if things get too freaky, you can just put it down and walk away for a while. So, when we heard that Playdead (a TriplePoint client) was putting their award-winning and unsettling game LIMBO on mobile devices so it [...]

Stuck in Phone LIMBO

Tweet Being in phone limbo is a terrifying prospect: caught in a never-ending loop of automated response menus, waiting on hold with only one terrible song playing over and over again, waiting for human contact that never comes. Well, now being in limbo on your phone just got a lot scarier, but in a supremely [...]

Sonic the Hedgehog Comes to Atlas Controller

Tweet Sometimes, it takes an iconic console character and game to show just how perfect of a marriage there is to be had between Android games and the Green Throttle Atlas Controller — a console experience adapted to a mobile platform which then supports a console controller for a mobile console game! …I think! What’s [...]

LIMBO Got on the Vita, Baby

Tweet We’ve been fans of LIMBO since its time on Xbox LIVE Arcade. Maybe it’s the art, maybe it’s the tone, maybe it’s the clever, diabolical puzzles and traps, but as haunting realms go, LIMBO from TriplePoint client Playdead is among the best to be trapped in. Now, thanks to the game’s release for the [...]

TriplePoint client Minority has brought their indie puzzle-platforming monster addiction tale Papo & Yo to Steam, GamersGate, Amazon, and other PC spots. Plus, for the next 10 days or so, you can get it for 10% off, [...]

Your Daily AppGratis: Impossible Pixel

Tweet Every day, TriplePoint client AppGratis locates an app that they think ought to be free for a day. We download and take a look for ourselves to let you know what awaits you – why not? It’s free. If Canabalt and Super Meat Boy had a baby, well, I don’t think any of us would want to watch that happening. It [...]

Grab Grabbity and then Turn It in Every Direction

Tweet The title Grabbity, which belongs to a lovely new iOS game from TriplePoint client Televisa Home Entertainment, has a couple of different meanings. At its simplest, it’s clearly a pun between “gravity” and the rabbit-like character you control in the puzzle-platforming world. Here at Frisky Mongoose, we can always get behind a good pun, so Grabbity [...]

Tweet So, like we were saying before, Papo & Yo, the whimsical favela-altering puzzle-platforming monster-codependence-simulator from TriplePoint client Minority is launching next week, and can be pre-ordered on the cheap by PSN Plus members. The new news about all that is that instead of pre-orders about to be available, they’re available now. So, I’m not sure why [...]

It’s coming out later this year with “high-definition graphics, leaderboards, achievement/trophy support, and more.” To celebrate this news, I can think [...]

PSN PLAY & Yo

Tweet We’ve been excited about Papo & Yo ever since last GDC, when we snuck into the demo room being used by TriplePoint client Minority to try out the game. We didn’t really need any more reasons to get impatient for its upcoming release. It looks like we got them anyway, though: today the game got a [...]
