  • Torment Tides of Numenera

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 5, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    For fans of Planescape Torment back in 1999 the revisiting or as some call it the spiritual successor of Torment Tides of Numenera is a game which fans have cried out for but has taken an age to be made reality. Torment Tides of Numenera is an isometric RPG funded by fans through Kickstarter almost four years ago and as most Inxile campaigns go was well received by fans and funded accordingly. Tor... more.
  • Emily is Away

    I recently came across an title on steam from the solo developer Kyle Seeley called Emily is Away, It's a choose your own adventure style interactive story based around the old 90s AIM. For those unaware AIM as one of the many ways us oldies use to communicate with our friends online, we didn’t have Facebook and at one stage we didn’t even have Myspace. All we had was AIM and MSN Messenger. So... more.

    Choppa is bought to us from Parta Games. It reminds me instantly of old arcade style games that were on the Atari system back in the day. Everything from the 8bit graphics to the sound give you a this sense of nostalgia. The game even encourages you to use a controller however I don’t have one compatible with my computer so Keyboard it was for me. Gameplay is pretty simple yet challenging. Yo... more.
  • Burley Men At Sea

    A game does not always have to have immediate threat to present challenge and interest, the imminent looming demon of defeat careening down upon you with a ‘game over’ screen does not always need to be present to inspire one to progress further for entertainment. Burly Men at Sea, henceforth known as BMAS, is at once an interesting folk tale and simplified adventure game that works pleasantly ... more.

    I’m going to level with you, I had zero idea what to expect with this game other than the idea it involved mustaches somehow. I mean, when I started it up, I had to giggle a bit at it, the idea a twin stick 2d side scrolling shooter would rely on that old macho stereotype of the manly man’s mustache providing the main characters special powers really tickled my funny bone. The fact you can get... more.
  • Rotation Phonology: Break

    0 CommentsPosted by on February 21, 2017 under PC Review
    Sometimes I get a game that baffles me. I know I want to like it? I know it’s not really terrible, but the concept escapes me, the controls just feel uninspired and the game itself just feels like it’s been slapped together with good intent but poor execution. I think honestly that describes Rotation Phonology: Break (Henceforth known as RPB) to a tee, “Good intent but poor execution” hone... more.
  • Card Quest

    Card Quest is a dungeon crawling adventure game with unique card combat. Like most card games of its genre using the same old tactic will not work for all situations (so for me simply using all my cards to speed through each battle did fail early on). Developed by the indie publisher Winterspring games and published in 2017 by Black Shell Media Card Quest is a strategy card game yet keeps to its c... more.

    I must’ve been around 7 or 8 years old, I received these books, these fantastic books at the time called “Zork”, Bivotar and Juranda, the main characters were on a quest to find the three Palantirs of Zork and to defeat the evil sorcerer Krill. A choose your own adventure, these opened my eyes up to interactive storytelling and I’ve been a fan of this style for years since. I’ve seen pr... more.
  • Gunmetal Arcadia

    A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of playing Gunmetal Arcadia Zero, it was a throwback to the past offering a tightly controlled platformer that featured retro graphics, sounds and gameplay. The only negative that this games prequel Gunmetal Arcadia Zero had was that it didn’t really develop on its narrative. This time around Minor Key Games have taken everything that was amazing from the first... more.
  • Ellipsis

    0 CommentsPosted by on February 9, 2017 under Featured, PC Review
    One of my favourite arcade titles on the Xbox 360 was geometry wars, it was simple, addictive and challenging all at once. So when I saw the first screenshot for Ellipsis on Steam my mind and my heart both traveled back to the original Geometry Wars and I was excited. The thing is however, the simple, addictive and challenging aspects are about where the familiarities stop. The question I had to f... more.

The crashing, burning hulk of your truck is going to careen down the road, your body is going to get covered in chunky tomato salsa and four armed rednecks, catfish and wizard cats are going to pick over your corpse, wrapping it in tortillas, serving you up for lu... more.

    It’s been a long time since I’ve played a game like this, I mean *quite* like this, Memoranda from indie developer Bit Biterz brings back memories of sitting in my parents’ house on a Friday night smashing through Monkey Island I and II, Police Quest I – III and any other point and click game you can think of, with friends just to get to the end, my brain absolutely bent on how to solve ce... more.
