David OReilly's Mountain [$0.99] has proven to be absolute pornography for people who write about video games – from its gameplay or lack thereof, to the mysterious things that can happen, even we've gotten into it. After all, we did stream the supposed ending – or at least an ending, even if OReilly claims it's not the true ending. Well, I have good news: an update is out now for the PC version and is coming soon to mobile...

'The Walking Dead: No Man's Land' Mobile Game Announced from AMC and Next Games

There's a new mobile game in the works from AMC and Next Games built around the ultra-popular The Walking Dead franchise. It's called The Walking Dead: No Man's Land, and though the exact gameplay hasn't been revealed yet, Next's CEO Teemu Huuhtanen says of the upcoming game "Our approach is to stay true to the main themes of the TV show: survival strategy, finding safety for your people, balancing between right and wrong and, of course, action when it comes to fighting against the hordes of walkers. We respect the creators of The Walking Dead immensely and want this game to portray the world they have created as closely as possible." Here's a brief cinematic trailer...

Back in May, FDG Entertainment and Cornfox & Bros. teased a fishing mini-game that was set to come to their action-adventure epic Oceanhorn [$8.99], and the following month the developers confirmed that the fishing being shown was actually part of a massive Game of the Year Edition update they had been working on. Today, they've released a new trailer which shows off some of the new content as well as highlights "your voice," meaning it's partially narrated by the many nice comments made by YouTubers and Let's Players. Be sure to watch the very end, where you can see a snippet of the highly-anticipated fishing...

Space Bears Bring Abstract Strategy to iOS with Upcoming 'Kingdoms'

Perhaps unfortunately, French indie duo Space Bears' first project isn't about a roaming sleuth of star-faring ursids. Instead, the Paris-based combo are making Kingdoms, a two-player strategy game about capturing tiles, fortifying positions, and wresting territory away from your enemies...

As Hearthstone [Free (HD)] fanatics everywhere desperately look for any kind of tea leaves to read to divine the exact time of day the new Curse of Naxxramas expansion is going to hit, Blizzard has shed some light on when it's not going to hit.

Zombies Invade Chess in 'Kings & Corpses', Coming This Thursday

Indie developer Danny Perski has a new project in the works which was revealed in our forums this afternoon. It's called Kings & Corpses, and it's very loosely based on a simplified version of chess where your goal is to protect your king from the zombies on the board. Based on the following video, you'll be doing that by strategically maneuvering your pawns and using them for cannon fodder against the zombies. The levels in Kings & Corpses are randomly generated too, so it's different each time you play. ..

Blizzard has been constantly drizzling out new cards as they've teased the upcoming Hearthstone [Free (HD)] expansion Curse of Naxxramas, but with the first wing scheduled to open tomorrow, now is a great time to head over to their Facebook album where they've been continually adding new cards...

Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen was at the Gamelab 2014 conference that took place in Barcelona last month, and spent nearly an hour on a panel answering questions both from other guest speakers and those sitting in the audience. Several of the topics discussed have been talked about before in previous interviews, like how Nguyen's original inspiration for Flappy Bird was the physical paddleball toy. He also discusses the game's notorious difficulty, and how it didn't originally start off as hard as it ended up being, but as Nguyen played his game and became better at it during development, he slowly increased the difficulty to compensate...

Classic NeoGeo Fighter 'The King of Fighters '98' Heading to Mobile Soon

In November of last year, SNK Playmore and Dotemu teamed up to bring the classic arcade fighting game The King of Fighters '97 [$3.99] to the App Store, and according to a page on SNK's website, it looks like the sequel The King of Fighters '98 is also on its way to mobile. The King of Fighters series began in 1994 when SNK combined characters from their Art of Fighting and Fatal Fury games, as well as some new original characters and those from previous SNK games, into one ultimate fighting game. The series continued with yearly releases, with The King of Fighters '98 being the fifth entry, up until 2003.

TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon'

The idea behind the TouchArcade Game of the Week is that every Friday afternoon we post the one game that came out this week that we think is worth giving a special nod to. Now, before anyone goes over-thinking this, it doesn't necessarily mean our Game of the Week pick is the highest scoring game in a review, the game with the best graphics, or really any other quantifiable "best" thing. Instead, it's more just us picking out the single game out of the week's releases that we think is the most noteworthy, surprising, interesting, or really any other hard to describe quality that makes it worth having if you were just going to pick up one...
