Quadrilateral Cowboy trailer teases cute robots, stealth hacking and ramen

Blendo Games' Brendon Chung broke into LA's indie game festival IndieCade over the weekend, and uploaded this Quadrilateral Cowboy trailer to spread, like a virus, through the event's many terminals. Okay, so it's more likely that he was "invited", and chose to "premier" the trailer, but that seems less in the spirit of the 20th century infiltration adventure.


Quadrilateral Cowboy: watch Brendon Chung walk through a hacking heist

Blendo Games' upcoming Quadrilateral Cowboy is probably one of my most anticipated games of the year. It's a stylish first-person hacking sim, in which you complete simulated heists - infiltrating buildings with custom command prompts that disable the compound's security. In this PAX East video, courtesy of Kotaku, you can see Blendo's Brendon Chung show a taste of what to expect.

During every re-read of William Gibson's Neuromancer, I yearn for a world choked by technological corporatocracy and virtual vaults ripe for a single coding god's plundering. Blendo's Quadrilateral Cowboy excited us at PAX with just that kind of hacker heist masterminding, and today, GameTrailers has published a new video demonstrating various commands deployed through the game's mobile hacking platform. Have a look inside.


Thirty Flights of Loving tells a better story in 13 minutes than most games do in 13 hours

When indie game designer Brendon Chung isn't making games like Flotilla and Atom Zombie Smasher, he's producing entries in his first-person Citizen Abel series. The last was Gravity Bone, a stylish short story about a spy. It's free, and you should probably play it.

The next game in the series is Thirty Flights of Loving, and you should definitely play it. It's another first-person short story, requires no previous knowledge of the series, and it's about a heist. The trailer is above. Without spoiling any of the story, I'm going to convince you why you should pay money for something you'll finish playing in less time than it took me to write this article.
