Interview: King Arthur’s Gold

People keeping a close eye on sites like IndieDB will no doubt have come across King Arthur’s Gold, a retro platformer with a menagerie of game modes and features that already boasts a considerable following among the indie community. If reputations are anything to go on, then KAG is set to become something really rather incredible, with a development team that boasts the talents of designer...

All About Indie Games – Part 1

…and so Peter set out on his noble quest to inform all the Capsule Computers readers about indie games, the best and the worst, the things you didn’t know, and much more. As someone who has worked in video game journalism for almost three years now, starting with humble independant work at the age of just 14, I’ve experienced a great many games across a wide variety of genres, bu...

The Haunted: Hell’s Reach – Interview

Released just over a week ago and already receiving much praise for its original art direction and unique take on survival shooter gameplay, “The Haunted: Hell’s Reach” is stirring things up for the whole zombie game genre. The project and its team are a force to be reckoned with. Excited to get an insight into The Haunted’s growth from humble beginnings to critical acclaim...

Glamorous Indie Rock & Roll

Indie games are rather a tough bunch to nail down, ranging from everything to the astonishingly beautiful “Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery” (iOS devices) to the immersive and action-packed “Interstellar Marines” (Upcoming; Mac, PC), they’ve proven themselves, especially in recent years, to be complex and extremely varied. Take as an example “Limbo” (PC, Mac, XLBA, PSN) the dark and claustropho...

Ace Team Interview

Anyone who read my previous article will know quite how impressed I was with Rock of Ages, and after having written it, I did what I usually do, and try to set up an interview with the creators. Indie Developers being Indie Developers always seem to have enough time for their fans, and ACE TEAM were no exception. Here’s what they had to say during our chat earlier this week; Capsule: The pre...

Rolling Stones: Thoughts “On Rock Of Ages”

Now, let me start this article by saying this; I am not an RTS or Strategy Gamer by any stretch, the appeal of setting up little windmills and armouries, and commanding an army of tiny little people in a miniature replica of 17th century Britain has never quite been made sense of in that simplistic FPS Gamer brain of mine. But setting up little windmills and armouries and tiny little people, and t...

InterWave Studios Interview

Nuclear Dawn rapidly approaches it’s long awaited release, and the Beta (my impressions of which are covered here) is looking and playing more and more like the kind of startlingly original game fans envisioned at the projects birth. With this in mind, I thought that it was perfect time to ask the lovely developers at InterWave Studios some questions, while they still have some free time, an...

Nuclear Dawn – Beta Impressions

The post-apocalypse nuclear backstory has been done, well, a lot. Suffice to say everyone has seen and played their fair share of games in that setting, a disappointing number of which are actually pretty poor, Fallout and Metro 2033 being examples from my Steam library that (in my opinion at least) failed to deliver anything really memorable. So what then has Nuclear Dawn, a class-based multiplay...

How Much Did You Say?

The price of games, something that affects pretty much all of us gamers, be it the latest Call of Duty instalment at more than a day’s wages, or a curious indie title at just a few bob, pricing is something that all publishers and studios have to decide on. Sometimes the price is based on prestige or brand, sometimes it is low enough to be an impulse purchase, and sometimes it appears to be nothin...

Arrowhead Studios – Interview

Needless to say, those magic fanatics and PC gamers among you will already be familiar with the hugely talented Arrowhead Studios, creators of popular cooperative spell-casting game; “Magicka”, a blend of furious gameplay, beautiful fantasy setting, and oodles of nerd-pleasing satire. If you aren’t, then simply re-read the last section to bring yourself up to speed, and then purc...

Second Coming: The Return of Two Beloved Gaming Franchises

I can say with some confidence that you all will have heard of Duke Nukem Forever; chances are you’ve watched a trailer, read an article somewhere, or seen an ad for it. What I can with much less confidence is that you know how ubiquitously awful a sequel it is to Duke’s Legacy. Yes the heart-warmingly narcissistic gun-toting hero is back, and so too are his adversaries and allies, but when it com...

Chromebook: CR-48 The Beginning Of The End

Google, the continually expanding and hugely innovative company made famous by its eponymous search engine, the Android operating system and everything in-between, have recently unveiled and began promotion for their long awaited and very exciting spin on the netbook formula; the Chromebook. Some of the game changing features it boasts are an entirely browser-based OS, exclusively cloud-based data...
