Oh good. We weren't creeped out enough by Tale of Tales' The Path, so it's just great to hear that Takayoshi Sato of Silent Hill fame is creating character designs for the company's follow-up, Fatale. At this rate, we won't even be able to download the thing with the lights off. Fatale, you may re...

We've had kind of a weird relationship with indie dev Tale of Tales. On the one hand, we love how unconventional its avant-garde games, like Graveyard and The Path, are, but on the other, we equated the latter to "getting punched in the nose by a centaur."

I was searching for some way I could accurately and elegantly communicate my feelings on Tale of Tales' new indie PC horror game, The Path.

"But Joystiq, what's The Path?" we hear you ask, bewildered. Ah, we've pulled the old bait-and-switch on you, friend. See, we pretended like this was a game you already cared about so you'd read the post and then, in turn, care about it -- oldest blogging trick in the book.The Path is an indie game...

The Endless Forest, which our very own Turpster has reviewed in his own very special way, seems to be outgrowing its community forums and website. Luckily for the dedicated members of this community, creators Michael Samyn and Auriea Harvey have developed a new-and-improved site offering players a...

Thankfully, here comes The Graveyard, an art game by IGF-winning developer Tale of Tales, which places players in the role of an elderly woman visiting a cemetery.The game is incredibly short an...
