You can see a trailer of it below, and then say, “No, that’s not WipEout, that’s…”

The Splatters is a physics-driven puzzler where you control liquid-filled creatures with one purpose in life – to go out with style. The physics based game-play in The Splatters has a sand-box feel to its mechanics. Even more so the ‘Flip’ mechanic which is free to use, once you unlock it, whenever you want and without limit.

The First Official Trailer for the New Angry Birds Sequel

Here’s the first official trailer for the first proper sequel to Angry Birds, called Angry Birds: Space. They don’t look that angry, do they? More like they’re just…mildly upset. A little cranky. Guess that’s what billions of dollars does to an animal. It cheers them up.
