Hey all, Bit late with this one (I apologise!) but for this week I’m linking to my review on Songbringer – a fantastic procedural dungeon crawler that really did remind me of the early days of Zelda. It had a few issues (more bug related), but otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed the game and am going

It’s been a while since I’ve played an incomplete, rough indie game, and weirdly enough, I wasn’t actually going out of my way to do that. But that was the case with Submerged – a weirdly ambitious indie platformer that proceeded to push the boat (literally) in the graphics department, but also felt so rough
I’ll tell you what, it’s been a while since I’ve gone out of my way to find an indie game. Given how much work I find myself doing these days, that’s a massive shame; it’s always good to see what’s on the market and what your fellow developers are up to. So with it being
Hi all! For this week, I’m going to link to a review I done back in August. Whilst I thoroughly enjoyed Abzû, I couldn’t help but think that it was a little too similar to Flower and Journey. Not that this is a bad thing, it just made me feel a little… cheated? Anyway, if
It’s rare that a game truly encapsulates the mantra “Keep it Simple, Stupid”, fortunately, Nidhogg is one such game. Don’t let it’s simplistic retro art style throw you off, for all of it’s simplicity in the aesthetics departmenr, Nidhogg is one deep and lovely game. First off, the main appeal of the game: The combat.
I remember seeing Hohokum announced for the PS4 before the consoles inevitable release. It was charming to watch in action, but I couldn’t help but feel confused as to what the game was actually about. Here was a tadpole-like creature that was going around weird but colourful worlds in a seemingly random fashion. Needless to
Given how many awards Her Story has received this year (some from BAFTA for example), I felt it was time to give the game a go, and see what all the fuss was about. I recall walking past the game at EGX Rezzed 2015, but didn’t think much of it due to its lacklustre appearance.
Losing your virginity; it’s a deeply personal experience, and one which rarely gets mentioned in all forms of media. There’s a reason; this awkward first time is meant to prepare you for a lifetime of sexual encounters, so it’s hugely intimate and infinitely personal. So imagine my surprise when a game is made that goes
Hi all! I hope you’ve all been well. This ones a bit late, as I forgot that I had reviewed the game but never published it on here! So for this week, enjoy my video and written review for Lumo, a classic isometric platformer that I enjoyed, but felt was quite flawed. http://www.vgchartz.com/article/264425/lumo-pc/ Apologies if
Hi all! Thanks as always for returning to another week of Weekly Gaming. This week, I take a look at Wailing Heights, a fantastic indie adventure game from Outsider Games – a Northern Irish developer of which this is their first game. Overall, the game was fantastic, with even it’s flaws (jumpiness in the intro, weird
Hi all! So this week I review Furi, The Game Bakers epic boss-rush game that’s a staggering success by my standards. The game both infuriated me and delighted me, and I have to give it a massive thumbs up, especially for those of you who fancy a challenging game. As always for my articles that
Being in the mode for some stealth games is rare for me, but it does happen, occasionally. The last time I played a stealth game was Mike Bethel’s Volume, and even that didn’t really quench my thirst for the stealthiness. This week I was browsing through my PS4, to see what games I could maybe
If I had to describe Downwell with as few words as possible, I’d have to say the following: The Binding of Isaac but as a platformer. Those words don’t come lightly, as I absolutely adore The Binding of isaac; a game that has easily taken hundreds of hours of my productive life away. So what about
Having both Games with Gold and Playstation Plus is a genuine nightmare should you make sure to get each of their games monthly. That’s (at the minimum) 9 games every month constantly added to my overwhelming collection, and thats ignoring my PC collection where I also subscribe to Humble Monthly, and buy multiple Humble Bundles
I’ve been going around my friends house a lot lately and watching Fairy Tail with him and his sister. On one of these days, his sister happened to be playing a game that looked like Tetris on her iPad at the corner of my eye. Seeing her pic this intriguing game up now and then
