MirrorMoon EP Review
0 CommentsPosted by Michael on September 7, 2013 under Featured, Mac, PC
Some games are truly beautiful. Ever since playing Dear Esther I've found my self actually seeking out games that don't really follow the standard formula. Upcoming titles like Lacuna Passage for example have my interest piqued. So when there was a simple banner ad on Steam, sporting some very outlandish-looking artwork and a title that read "MirrorMoon EP", I couldn't help but click on it. I was ... more.
Man in a Maze Review
2 CommentsPosted by Michael on September 2, 2013 under Featured, PC
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Rogues. There's not really any games that fall into the genre that I think are "just okay", they either suck or I love them. With that in mind, it was with hesitation that I picked on of the titles from the Rugged Rogues Bundle over at Indiebundle.org. Nevertheless, I fired up Man in a Maze with an open mind and found it to be a delightfully charming t... more.
Interview with RuneStorm, creators of Rooks Keep and Viscera Cleanup Detail
0 CommentsPosted by Michael on August 15, 2013 under Featured, PC
A while back, we took a game called Rooks Keep for a spin. A bloody mashup of chess and arena combat, it was immense fun and stood out as something different in a world of sequels and reboots. More recently, we fired up the alpha of Viscera Cleanup Detail, a game where you are a janitor in space cleaning up after a game like Dead Space or Halo. It also stood out as a completely unique idea. No su... more.
Help it get Greenlit: Galactose – Pastries in Space
1 CommentsPosted by Michael on August 1, 2013 under Featured
Every wanted to fly a cupcake? Or maybe do battle with a giant thanksgiving turkey mothership with it's own squadron of broccoli bombers? If you said no to either of those questions you are sad and I don't want to hang out with you anymore! If you said yes, then you might be interested in Galactose: Pastries in Space, a crazy colourful space shooter/rts hybrid title currently endeavouring to get t... more.
Zombies. Review – Apparently the undead hate photocopiers too!
2 CommentsPosted by Michael on July 29, 2013 under Featured, Mobile, PC
So I've just started a desk job. It's the first time I've ever worked in an office and I had very little idea of what to expect, aside from movies like Office Space (which, unfortunately, is not an accurate representation). Overall, I have found the entire experience thus far to be quite tedious and droney... And it seems that indie developer, thebignic, noticed this at some point also as this is ... more.
Help it get Greenlit: Viscera Cleanup Detail
1 CommentsPosted by Michael on July 12, 2013 under Featured, PC, Videos
If there's one thing that RuneStorm has proven with their last release, Rook's Keep, it's that they like blood in their games. And it seems to be a continuing motif with their games if the recent proof of concept alpha they put out, Viscera Cleanup Detail, is anything to go by. Check out the video below...

DLC Quest Review – Available free now… No it’s not; DLC!!!!!
1 CommentsPosted by Michael on July 2, 2013 under Featured, PC
One of the more controversial trends that has taken off in recent years with games is DLC. Some games, like the Borderlands series, or Fallout franchise, have delivered amazing expansions that add to the overall experience for a modest fee, whilst others (I'm looking at almost every game in the EA or Squaresoft catalog) have been pretty clear money grabs, charging fees for entirely aesthetic or mi... more.
Interview with Stardew Valley creator Eric Barone.

Stardew Valley is a "open-ended country-life RPG" (think Harvest Moon), that Eric Barone at Chucklefish recently got Greenlit on Steam Greenlight. Eric has been working on the game for almost two years on his own, and is planning on releasing it sometime this year. What exactly is Stardew Valley about? Stardew Valley is a country-life RPG. You play as a newcomer to a close-knit ... more.
Plazma Being – We take a journey with Zeb
3 CommentsPosted by Govind on June 10, 2013 under Featured, PC
Indie games nowadays are common, there are hundreds if not thousands of new games coming out every month, sometimes great gems go unnoticed, while "indie" games made by huge developers get recognition for being "original" and "groundbreaking". Plazma Being is a genuine Indie game, created by a single man - Felix Wunderlich. Add to that the fact that this is his first game, it is very impressive. I... more.
Drill Skulls And Slice Intestines! – Surgeon Simulator 2013 Review
9 CommentsPosted by Jonathan on May 4, 2013 under Featured, PC
You're definitely a professional surgeon after playing this. Humour? Check. Bones and intestines? Check. Flimsy hand? Check. The first thing you notice about this game that it's funny without doubt. You operate on patients (one handed of course!) ranging from kidney, heart and brain transplants. Know nothing about surgery and the human anatomy? It's fine! Just slice and drill away as best as yo... more.
This game terrifies me more than Amnesia – Slender: The Arrival Review
11 CommentsPosted by Jonathan on April 18, 2013 under PC
Now, I’ve not played the original free Slenderman game circulating on the Internet because I’m busy with other games and the hype didn’t catch up with me. After all, I completed Amnesia: The Dark Descent and I proudly proclaim myself as having mastered a game considered to be the pinnacle of horror games. Taking on the challenge, I played Slender: The Arrival. This is an entirely new game de... more.
