Save Koch – Review

“No matter what I do, they find another turncoat. Another goddamn traitor.” One of the reasons I started this site was to help bring attention to those indie gems that fall through the cracks. Save Koch is one of those games that fell through the cracks and I need to remedy that. Save Koch is […]

Developer Spotlight – Oliver Joyce (Swords and Sandals Series)

After reviewing the Swords and Sandals: Classic Edition I took the chance to catch up with series developer Oliver Joyce to talk about the highs and lows of Flash development. Having played these games back when I was but a nipper, it’s strange and cool to be in a position to chat to the creator […]

Chook and Sosig: Walk the Plank Review (PC)

Chook and Sosig: Walk the Plank is a fun game, centering around the adventurous kitten, Sosig and his best friend, Chook the chicken ghost. The two of them are with their friends: Exley, the demonic sheep and acting Game Master; Hebble, the cheeky fox with a dinosaur obsession; Min, the psychic, swashbuckling bat; and Cow […]

Verdant Skies: PC Review

As you may have been able to tell about me from my past review of My Time at Portia, I am an absolute sucker for farming/resource gathering RPGs. Immediately upon seeing Verdant Skies, my heart fluttered at the premise: space colonists land on a whole new world and begin to make it habitable – and […]

Freeman: Guerilla Warfare – Early Access Review

Freeman, Mount and Blade, RTS, FPS, Tactics, Indie, Game

Freeman: Guerilla Warfare got me really hyped when I first saw it. The Mount and Blade style overworld where you travel between villages, picking up quests, buying items low and selling high, and hiring troops along the way with Jagged Alliance’s island mercenary setting and soldier outfitting was something I thought I really wanted. I […]

Anna’s Pico-8 Taster Plate

While I have a bachelors degree in game development, I’m not very good at the programming side of things but it has taught me enough to be able to look at stuff and think: “Wow, that’s impressive.” With Pico-8, developers use a ‘fantasy console’ to impose strict limitations on themselves and have to perform fantastic […]

Dark Futures: Blood Red States – Review

Games Workshop has been giving the licenses to their old games out like candy at Halloween and while the Focus Home sinks their teeth into Blood Bowl, Necromunda, and Battlefleet Gothic, others have to make do with the obscurer stuff. Personally, I have an up and down relationship with Games Workshop content. Some games, like […]

Void Bastards – Review

Channelling the spirit of Doom and the facetious anti-corporate humour of the Borderlands series, wrapped in a bold comic book art style, with FTL style navigation, Void Bastards is the roguelike I didn’t know I wanted. Having recently had to battle through the bureaucratic hell that is the HMRC, the humour in Void Bastards really […]

Snakeybus – Review

Indie arcade bus simulator snake crazy taxi Sega game

Snake meets Crazy Taxi, as a core concept its pretty damn engaging. You play an evergrowing bus, smashing through bus-stops and picking up passengers until you’re full, then hurtling straight to their destination. As you grow, the map gets more and more difficult to navigate and if you stop moving, game over. Snakeybus is deceptive […]

Wailing Heights – PC Review

Wailing Heights by indie developers Outsider Games is essentially what would happen if you merged Transylvanian monsters, 60s-70s rock music, and comic books together into one entity. Wailing Heights has a sort of cool, Scooby-Doo vibe to it that brings me back to when I was a kiddo, watching cartoon reruns starring meddling kids and […]
