Zelda meets Twin Peaks in... Falling Sky, the game you've never heard of, made by one person, and up for one of gaming's top awards

The core story follows Daniel and his young brother Tommy, who set out to find out the truth behind their mother's disappearance.
The UK's biggest video game event, EGX, took place this weekend, attracting around 75,000 people to the Birmingham NEC. As ever, the show floor saw both blockbuster mega-hits and offbeat independent titles jostling for space and attention, providing a varied and enjoyable browsing experience.
We've been having a lovely old time here at EGX. Andy Serkis turned up, Doug Cockle came and did the Geralt voice for Bertie (whether he liked it or not), Chris Bratt had some very Chris Bratt conversations with X-COM and XCOM maestros Julian Gollop and Jake Solomon, and then as well as all that other stuff going on, there are the games.

On Geektown Radio this week, we have all the usual TV new and air date info, plus we're all about the gaming, as we head over to EGX and take a look at the latest game releases and previews! ...
Away from the first parties, the Rezzed (or 'Indie', if you'd rather) zone felt an awful lot bigger than it had been in previous years, particularly as larger companies have started muscling in, and groups of developers have started to band together to create showier booths.
These are our the *smaller* games that we're most excited about after seeing them at EGX 2017.
