Bizarre game trailer will give you a serious case of the thirsties

Soda Drinker Pro lauds itself as “the original FPS (first-person soda) simulator,” and that’s probably true because that description is mad specific.

The weirdo game, which looks straight out of Cartoon Network’s stoner-centric programming block Adult Swim, just landed a spot on digital-distribution platform Steam after a successful Greenlight campaign. Greenlight lets the Steam community vote on which indie games earn a place in the store, and developer Snowrunner Productions celebrated by releasing a brand-new trailer (below) that looks like the kind of soda commercial that surrealist filmmaker David Lynch would make.

Sentient-toast simulator I Am Bread kneads its way on to iOS

Yeah, you read that right – this is a video game where you play as a piece of bread on an epic journey to become an actual piece of toast.

I Am Bread has been out on Steam Early Access since December of last year, and now the developers at Bossa Studios have let it slip that the game will indeed come out on iOS, as soon as they finish up the PC/Mac version.

If you’ve seen the massively viral hit game Goat Simulator, you’ll immediately have a sense of how this one plays out. You’ll hit various keys on your keyboard or buttons on your controller, and move a slice of oddly movable bread around, trying to find some way to toast yourself. Here’s a quick video to visualize it.

Goat Simulator gets even weirder with MMO herd mode

What’s better than goats? Goats you can control in a weird physics-simulator, of course.

What’s better than that? A full-on massively multiplayer online version of the goat sim. Duh.

The hilarious developers at Coffee Stain Studios (Sanctum, Sanctum 2) just offered up a free patch to all current owners (via Steam, not iOS) of the game, turning a wacky game jam cult hit into an MMO with various classes, like the Tank, or Magician.

Shit just goat serious, guys. Check out the sweet trailer below.

Just lay off the sunscreen, ok?

Stay one move ahead with this free-to-play digital board game

Aerena screen (13)

Imagine a game that mashes up the best of a classic strategy game like speed chess and a modern hit like League of Legends. If you do, you’ll probably come up with something like Aerena: Clash of Champions, a steampunk-themed turn-based strategy game that uses the hero mechanics of other massively online battle arena games like Dota 2 in a painstakingly created digital board game arena.

The game will go free-to-play this Wednesday on Steam (it’s already out for Android tablets — iOS versions to come soon), and is a great new gaming experience — we’ve been playing it all morning. It takes only a short while for the casual gamer to learn how to play, but there is enough strategy and balanced mechanics to give core players a ton of depth.

If you’re super savvy, though, you’ll grab the early access copy today for $10, which nets you a full $30 worth of downloadable content, extra heroes and more. Either way, Aerena is a brilliant game and deserves your attention.
