Feel like your boring old black Xbox One controller could do with a facelift?

The world needs a proper Spyro the Dragon revival. We’ve got Crash, so surely he’s on the way. Surely.

Voodoo Vince It was one of the weirdest games on...

After brewing in beta on PC for a few months, the company are now ready to release their proprietary first-person shooter to the world.
