IGN just published the first portion of their TOP 100 MODERN GAMES LIST and we’re super jazzed to find out that exactly 2% of that list is made up of CAPY gaming goodness!

Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes came in at #81! The folks at IGN had some nice things to say about it:

Clash of Heroes doesn’t ape another game’s mechanics. This is a game all its own with a lot of depth and nuance to be discovered. Intricately detailed environments and smooth animation make Clash of Heroes a gorgeous endeavor. It’s a game to get lost in.

Meanwhile, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP snuck in at #98! From IGN:

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is art. This point-and-click adventure is a near-perfect polyamorous marriage of brilliant 8-bit visuals, clever puzzle-solving, and an unforgettable soundtrack. This unity of sight, sound, and touch is something special.

Thank You SO MUCH, IGN! It’s an huge huge huge honor to be part of a list like that. Here’s hoping Critter Crunch hasn’t been listed yet ’cause it’s #1:) WOOP WOOP!
