Webgame Wednesday: Midnight Massacre
By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed Oct 30 2013 2:52 PM ]
Halloween is here, so let's make with the monsters and stuff. Midnight Massacre finds you trapped in a theater with all sorts of werewolves, mummies, ghouls and the like. Use your handy shotgun to dispatch them. But try not to blow the heads off the innocent victims. Good. Now reload, because there's plenty more where that came from.

Webgame Wednesday: Candy Box
By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed Jun 19 2013 2:26 PM ]
Candy Box is causing an interweb stir for its old (old) school look and unusual game play. Surf on over to the game's homepage and you'll be greeted with information on your mounting candy supply. You can click a button to eat all the candies if you want, but that appears to be your only method of interaction with the game. What gives? Have a little patience, my friend. Leave your browser open, let those candies accumulate, and the game's possibilities will open up for you. Soon you'll be harvesting lollipops, buying weapons and fighting monsters. This oddball, text-only (with occasional ASCII art) adventure/resource management game grows bigger and bigger the longer you play. Plus it really makes you want some candy.

Webgame Wednesday's journey through Halloween Horror Month continues with the darkly atmospheric point-and-click-as-art game The Old Tree.

Webgame Wednesday: Nitrome Must Die
By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed Dec 7 2011 4:00 PM ]
Awesome online game developer Nitrome celebrates its 100th game by destroying all things Nitrome in Nitrome Must Die. Race through the Nitrome headquarters, machine gun blasting, to destroy all the monsters and grab all the coins you can. Funny enough, this is what I imagine all video game development companies look like.

The Slow Poisoner
The archetypal journey of a one-man band
By Summer Olsson
After realizing that working in a band was not conducive to his lifestyle, Andrew Goldfarb crossed the threshold into performing solo, fingering a guitar with his hands and beating drums with his feet. He underwent a metamorphosis, inventing a new personality—a traveling snake oil pusher, or tent-city preacher, or possibly a whacked-out Vodou mambo. One thing’s sure: The essence of all of these characters is present in his music.

Vampires are Over
By Marisa Demarco [ Fri Oct 16 2009 11:00 AM ]
Man, I love me some vampire TV shows. But ever since the diamond-skinned, Mormon-flavored Twilight books came out, vamps just aren’t doing it for me anymore. Zombies, which I also adore, are also (un)dead to me due to overuse.
Instead, warewolves are where it’s at. Hairy, animalistic, brutal, subject to a monthly cycle. Love ‘em.
Use this guide to make your own warewolf head.
And if you must dress as a sexy whatever for Halloween, please try to avoid typical Slutoween costumes (things with whiskers, things with wings). Instead, try for something like sexy Antarctica.
