Arcane Blaster Casters Preview – Silly Spell Slinging

Arcane Blaster Casters preview cover art

This Arcane Blaster Casters preview is based on a pre-production/review copy of the game so elements may be subject to change by release. Who doesn’t love wizards? The idea of being able to conjure whatever you want, curse people who don’t invite you to things, and cause wanton destruction is just so appealing. And as […]

The Forgotten City – Review

You awake in a fantasy world with none of your memories. You enlist the help of magical elves to help you restore your memories through the construction of special temples all while fighting off the nightmares that seek to undo you. The main goal in The Forgotten City is to get the most points through […]

Spire – Review

Reviewing games can be difficult at times. Enjoyment is subjective and while we try our best to be objective, our opinions and tastes ultimately decide how we get on with a game. Which leads me to the strange journey of reviewing Spire. Ever since first coming across Spire at the UK Games Expo last year, […]

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 […]

Beat That – Review

Last year we got a game at the UK Games Expo called Gutterhead. A delightfully rude Pictionary style game with little poops as player tokens. As usual, after writing a review we tried to contact the developers to let them know the review was up. However, all the box said in way of contact details […]

But it is important to be safe while exploring these emotions as it possible to go diving into them and struggle to resurface. Especially with solo play. To that end, The Artefact thankfully comes with a […]

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 […]

UKGE Microgames

As part of the writing I do for Tabletop Gaming Magazine, I curate and occasionally design for a monthly microgame feature. I love seeing what people can do with tight restrictions (it’s also why I love Pico-8 and game jam games). With that in mind, I went looking for microgames at the UK Games Expo […]

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 […]
