The game progressively gets sillier and sillier from here..
Next Alan Wake is out! Watch it over breakfast or some shit!
Light is a top-down minimalist stealth infiltration game with a focus (aside from stealth gameplay) on narrative to keep the action going. You are part of a scientific study and a procedure left your with short term memory loss. Further investigation reveals that there is something called ‘Project Light' and that all is not well. You must search for the answers that will help you piece together the fragmented memories of your past.
In Light, you infiltrate buildings, sneak your way through the guards and cameras, hack to open secured rooms and search for intel to help you figure out what is going on in ‘Project Light’. As in Metal Gear Solid, you’re best off dragging bodies away from plain sight once you’ve stunned or killed the guards as you don’t want to attract any unwanted attention.
The minimalistic visual style of Light is wonderful, feeling a little like you’re exploring the futuristic blueprints of a building with furnishings only appearing once they’re in your field of view. In development by Just a Pixel and published by Team 17, it’s a great stealth game with an interesting story and a clean, crisp visual style. Metal Square Solid.
I think this will be the first test I do on the new computer. Should go up at midnight.
Thanks for the kind words! Unfortunately, my other responsibilities at Cracked make it impossible to keep up a weekly column-writing schedule. That column was a fun little playground for me and I loved having a regular spot, but I won’t say that it was the BEST thing for my general anxiety. I miss it, but if I still had to do a weekly column on top of all other responsibilities I’m pretty sure my brain would leak out of my butt.
The BEST thing about me not having a weekly column is that we’ve been able to bring a bunch new columnists into the fold and I’m super stoked to watch them all grow and challenge themselves. There’s an energy and hunger inherent to being a new columnist (Kathy Benjamin, Cezary Jan Struciewiscz, JF Sargent, Winston Rowntree, Pauli Poisuo, C. Coville, Luis Prada and an even larger list of roving columnists like Jason Iannone and Mark Hill) that’s really exciting to me. Keep an eye on ‘em, because they’re all doing some pretty cool stuff.
P.S. YOU are awesome.
In case you’re not familiar with our new columnists/longtime kickass writers, memorize these names:
- Kathy Benjamin
- Cezary Jan Struciewiscz
- JF Sargent
- Winston Rowntree
- Pauli Poisuo
- C. Coville
- Luis Prada
- Jason Iannone
- Mark Hill
And of course you can always catch up on the works of Dam O. Brian.
