"Please allow me to apologize again for my actions"
Towards the end of last year, there was controversy surrounding the funding of the Advance Wars-esque turn-based strategy title Tiny Metal. The issues stemmed from Project
"We're dedicated to making it the best experience possible"
Tiny Metal developer Area 35 has detailed the first major update for the game, Patch 1.0.10. This patch comes with a wide range of fixes, changes and new content. The most noticeable update is that the opening cinematic has been replaced by a more traditional loading screen. Balancing...
Hold me closer, Tiny Metal
It's been almost ten years since we last had an entry in Intelligent Systems' superb Advance Wars series, but don't let that depress you - we now have the next best thing in the form of Tiny Metal, the debut game from Japanese studio Area35. This is unashamedly a clone of the aforementioned Nintendo franchise and the nuts...
"We worked hard under very limited resources"
Tiny Metal sure looks a lot like Advance Wars, and that's no bad thing when you consider how beloved that particular series is.

"Toxic employee" attacks Project Phoenix director

They're companies with numerous sizable divisions and spin-offs, with various businesses and interests outside the game industry. That subverts any idea of 'console wars' in the modern...
Your move, Intelligent Systems
After Fire Emblem: Awakening, Intelligent Systems’ longstanding SRPG franchise soared to new heights in the Nintendo canon, and it’s now enjoying something of a renaissance. Still, for every action, there must be an equal and opposite reaction, and this can be seen in the rather unfortunate plight of the Advance...
