: Potatoman Seeks the Troof coming to Steam this December

The creative minds at Pixeljam Games are gearing up for the Steam re-release of their challenging "potatosophical" platformer, Potatoman Seeks the Troof on December 3. It's been a while since a game trailer had me chuckling as hard as this one. Have a look, it's pretty damn amazing.

This version of Potatoman will feature a new rendering engine, more vibrant colors, a true fullscreen mode, controller support, and Steam achievements. Also, there's this description of the Toggle allToggle all- Delete selected New post embedNew post embed Video #56458 game: "In a world where the Troof is an unanswered question, Potatoman quests through the riddle. Through desert wastelands, thick forests, and dystopian cities: nothing is what it seems. With only his wits, his jump, and a question, Potatoman must potato forth through quirky and challenging platforming puzzles!"

When they say challenging, they're really not screwing around. I died so many times last night seeking my own Troof. Potatoman is very old-school in its unforgiving platforming, but the delightful soundtrack and quirky sense of humor made the experience well worth my time. It's pretty great.

Also, if you missed it before, our very own Editor-In-Chief Jonathan Holmes interviewed Rich Grillotti and Miles Tillman from Pixeljam last year. Have a look at all of them being awesome!

: Friday Night Fights: The blackest of Fridays

Happy Black Friday everyone! I know many of you are either in a food coma still or are out shopping, trying to find the bestest of best deals, so I'll keep this brief.

If you're out there shopping, stay safe. If you're working retail today, stay safer. If you're at home, enjoying leftovers while playing video games, well then, you win the day. From me and the rest of the Destructoid staff, we hope you had a very happy Thanksgiving. Thanks for being awesome.

: Human Existence Is a Big, Sad Video Game in William Gibson's New Novel

Human Existence Is a Big, Sad Video Game in William Gibson's New Novel

Human beings are the most important ingredients in game design. Without the participation and attention of an actual person, games are just basically systems waiting for input. In the new novel by legendary science-fiction writer William Gibson, humans aren't just controlling disembodied avatars in made-up worlds. They're controlling each other, too, in the worst possible ways.

Video Games Helped Me Say Goodbye To My Father

A few days before my dad died in August, I got the call I'd been dreading from my mother. She told me it was time to come home for my dad's last days. I live in California, and they live in Alabama. I packed up my PS4, super slim PS3 and PS Vita?alas, my desktop PC was too big?and made the journey.

: Modern Games Could Learn A Lot From The Best Level In Half-Life

Modern Games Could Learn A Lot From The Best Level In Half-Life

I think Half-Life is one of the greatest video games of all time, which isn't a controversial opinion. Valve's 1998 debut rocked the gaming world. Many aspects of its design have yet to be topped. Nowhere is this more obvious than Half-Life's sixth level, Blast Pit.

: News Post: Values

Tycho: As someone with experience in these matters - on both sides of the retail divide - Gabriel simply stays home for Black Friday. And it’s not because he doesn’t like to buy things. We discussed it all in the podcast you may absorb at some future date: he feels that the “deals” are illusory and that he doesn’t especially relish the thought of his heel on a retail worker’s trachea while he pours into the Consumer Battle Arena. He has been that motherfucker in there, the one with the human throat, and even if there is still a pitched melee with…


Gabe: Thanksgiving is tomorrow and that means Black Friday is just a day away. Brian has cooked up a pretty ridiculous assortment of Black Friday deals and it's my job to let you know about them. So I'll start with the stuff we've got. Christmas Pin Set - $29.99 A delightful seasonal pin set for the collector and/or trader. The Co-op Winning Tees - $19.99 Dabe’s first design as a full time PA employee and a great tee printed on a sweet, seasonally appropriate cranberry heather blank. Double Secret Boxes - $13.99 At last, the much-whispered-about Double Secret Boxes, each…
