Outer Wilds, the game of cosmic exploration and campfires, is delayed into 2019

Outer Wilds—not to be confused with The Outer Worlds—is a sci-fi exploration game "about curiosity, roasting marshmallows, and unraveling the mysteries of the cosmos." It won the IGF Grand Prize in 2015, raised a bunch of money, released a playable alpha, and then sort of fell off the map until earlier this year, when developer Mobius Digital announced that it had done a deal with Annapurna Interactive, the publisher of games including What Remains of Edith Finch, Gorogoa, and Donut County, and that it would be out later this year

Can this 'performance-enhancing gaming glove' help you become an Overwatch pro?

The Chnano LED gloves we learned about a couple of years ago seemed like an absurd, but perhaps inevitable, evolution of the RGB lighting craze that plagues PC peripherals of all kinds. But they weren't actually suitable for gaming: As TechReport said, "The fabric was somewhat slippery against the game controller, and gamepads without rubber inserts repeatedly slipped from our hands." Typing with gloves on wasn't a great experience either.

Verdun developer will plant 2500 real trees to celebrate this year's 'Christmas truce' event

Every year since its release in 2015, the First World War multiplayer FPS Verdun has held an in-game event to celebrate the famed Christmas truce of 1914, when British and German troops halted hostilities at various points along the Western Front and gathered together to exchange food and gifts, swap prisoners, bury their dead, and even play a little football. On December 20, it will return again, giving players the ability to take part in snowball fights and soccer matches, send Christmas cards, and for the first time, plant a tree for charity.

Play Stellaris as the most evil alien race imaginable: HP printers

In 2017 Stellaris' Synthetic Dawn DLC added Machine Empires to Paradox's ever-expanding 4X space game. Instead of simply using robots for planetary labor, you could play an entire campaign as a robotic civilization, exploring and/or exploiting the stars as synthetic beings. The DLC added new civilization traits and government types to Stellaris' species customization pool, from which any player could construct their very own Skynet, Borg, or Dalek equivalent.
