EGX: Hands On: The Best Indie Games at EGX 2018

Small but cool.While it’s the big blockbusters that always draw the largest crowds at conventions like EGX 2018, the most fun can usually be found nestled away in the deepest, darkest corners of Birmingham’s behemoth NEC, with indie games galore vying for… Well, any attention at all. This year’s show played host to approximately a billion different games – but here are just a handful that caught our eye.More from EGX 2018Hands On: Metro Exodus Pledges a Petrifying Apocalyptic Playground to PS4Hands On: Dreams Is Going to Be a Game of the Year CandidateHands On: In Hitman 2, You Can Finally…

EGX: Hands On: Starlink: Battle for Atlas Shows Promise That Could Prove Costly

Toys to life.As a concept, it feels like Starlink: Battle for Atlas is three years late to the party. The toys to life fad died out a long time ago, and so to see a title basing itself around the act of collecting weapons and ships out in the real world in the year 2018 almost seems like a foolish business decision to us. We got a chance to sample this blend between reality and videogame at EGX 2018, and while results in the gameplay department were fairly promising, we still can't shake the fact that this is all too much, far too late.In terms of the actual game playing side of things, the title…

EGX: Hands On: Man of Medan Is a Return to Form for Until Dawn Dev

Ghost ship.Developer Supermassive Games has been treading water for far too long now. After its 2015 title Until Dawn became a bit of a cult hit that deserved a lot more love, it overloaded itself with PlayStation VR projects, most of which missed the mark by a big margin. The likes of Bravo Team and The Inpatient seem to be behind the studio now, though, with its latest project hoping to capitalise on what made Until Dawn tick. The Dark Pictures Anthology will be a series of short stories based on different horror tropes, with the first taking the form of Man of Medan. After getting hands on…

EGX: Hands On: Dreams Is Going to Be a Game of the Year Candidate

If it ever comes out.Media Molecule’s showing a compilation of mini-games that it’s made in Dreams here at EGX 2018, and the highest compliment we can pay them is that many of them would comfortably hang in the indie stand. We don’t even need to get hands on time with the package’s impressive and comprehensive creation suite to realise that the Guildford developer’s been cooking something scarily special here.The mini-games are vibrant and varied, ranging from arcade shooters to visual novels. The latter, a classic white-on-black text adventure, tells the tale of an ordinary teenager…

EGX: Dead Cells Comes to Life on PS4 in August

Dead exciting.We've rather liked the look of Dead Cells since it was first shown off some time ago, and we now finally have a release date for the roguelike action game. You'll be making your way through procedurally generated dungeons from 7th August 2018.The above trailer tells you all you need to know: as you battle your way across the game's various environments, you'll unlock persistent upgrades, find unique weapons, and face off against big bosses.
