Skin Deep, the next game from the creator of Quadrilateral Cowboy, has resurfaced

Cloud streaming of Xbox Game Pass games to Windows 10 PCs is now in closed beta

Xbox Game Pass has launched a closed beta of its cloud gaming feature, which will let you play over 100 games by streaming them through your web browser.

Skin Deep was announced back in 2018. It’s the next game from Brendon Chung, the developer of Quadrilateral Cowboy and Thirty Flights Of Loving, and it’s a first-person shooter in which you can alert enemies accidentally by sneezing.

It’s resurfaced now with a new trailer, and the news that it’s being published by Annapurna.

Focus Home Interactive buying Space Hulk: Deathwing devs Streum On

The French studio behind Space Hulk: Deathwing and the upcoming Necromunda: Hired Gun are now part of Focus Home Interactive.


The original impression of Skin Deep was that it was ‘Die Hard in space’. You’d spend time crawling around in vents, dust might make you sneeze and set off systemic chain reactions, you could cut your feet on broken glass – all good stuff. Three years of development can change a lot and I get less of that vibe from the trailer above. There’s sneezing, sure, but also a mech and a big shotgun.

These aren’t complaints. I love Blendo Games’ style – from the colours they use, to the blocky character designs, to the obsessive detail on fantastic retro machinery – and all of the above is present here. I found Quadrilateral Cowboy’s puzzle design frustrating, but Thirty Flights Of Loving remains one of my favourite games. Plus, I love shotguns and mechs.

In short, I am excited Skin Deep has returned. It has no announced release date but you can wishlist it on Steam now.
