Officially now back at my Offworld post (following a long break away to the Bay Area, that, most excitingly, saw me complete the first leg of the journey through the infinitely fascinating reality game The Jejune Institute), we return with some catching-up coverage that includes breakneck stunt-man simulator Canabalt — a five-day stripped-down Experimental Gameplay entry from Adam Saltsman — a game whose one-button simplicity completely belies its action/sci-fi flick inspired roof-top leaping thrills.
We also found the first details on DeathSpank (above) — the upcoming Diablo/LucasArts adventure mashup from former Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion creator Ron Gilbert, and discovered that a remake of classic multiplayer strategy game M.U.L.E. was in development, including an upcoming port to the iPhone.
Elsewhere we saw new footage of Offworld-favorite 2D/3D platformer Fez, Nathan Fouts’ gloriously garish Grapple Buggy, and dug through a flurry of new announcements from Nintendo with new color DSis/Wii Remotes and an updated Wii Opera browser now available for free.
Finally, we saw a tiny custom (Shadow of the) Colossus Munny, and an NES Ghostbusters instruction manual T-shirt, and our ‘one shot’s: Olly Moss’s gorgeous new prints for This American Life-inspired games podcast A Life Well Wasted, and Vera Bee’s carny/sideshow illustrations make their LittleBigDebut.
