FlensGameDev Creators Bundle

Celebrating the talent in the development community of Flensburg, Germany, the FlensGameDev Creators Bundle – now on itch.io – brings together fifteen different games, with a minimum cost of just $5 for the whole bundle. There’s the Centipede-esque Hummingz, which marries the classic single screen shooting action of the Atari arcade game with some brilliantly detailed and naturalistic visuals. It’s […]

Bundle for Racial Justice & Equality

This week has seen an awful lot of tension and anger brought to the surface worldwide. For those of us unable to protest and/or offer support in person, there are other ways we can help. One way in particular that I wanted to highlight is that of indie game hub itch.io, who’ve put together a bundle of more than 700 […]

Kickstarter Spotlight: RalphGame

Kickstarter Link here Currently seeking backers on Kickstarter, action RPG RalphGame is looking very promising indeed. Despite old school pixel art visuals, the gameplay is very modern in its design, with an open ended nature that allows you to play however you decide to. I found it very intriguing that no non-story based battles are obligatory, meaning that most battles […]

Kickstarter Campaign: Commander ’85

Currently in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign – and around 40% funded with 27 days to go as of the time of writing – Commander ’85 is an adventure game for PC and consoles, with release planned for Autumn 2020. Capitalising on the currently very widespread nostalgia for the 80s, it’s a game that’s absolutely loaded from top to […]

Review: Little Inferno

Version Played: PC (also available on Android, iOS, Linux, Mac, Switch, Wii U) I remember working my way through World of Goo, when it became available as a downloadable game on the Wii (hey kids, remember the Wii?) in 2008. It was a game that was perfectly suited to the Wii’s controls, seeing you picking up and placing blobs in […]

Pecaminosa – Crowdfunding Campaign Launch

Though I’ve shone a spotlight on Pecaminosa a few times before, the game’s Indiegogo campaign is live as of today – so it’s a great opportunity to spread the word of this wonderful looking game once more. Billed as a ‘Pixel Noir’ game, Pecaminosa is a game that has definitely had my attention for a long time now. Dripping in […]

Preview Update: Pecaminosa

I’ve covered Pecaminosa before, but wanted to spotlight it again; it’s a hugely promising indie title that’s coming to PC this year. Described as a pixel noir RPG, it’s got a wonderful sense of style, with a wide range of influences including LA Noire, Fallout and Grim Fandango. It looks like a great mix of noir, RPG mechanics and surrealism […]

Review: OmoTomO

Version Played: Switch – Out Now (£8.99/$9.99) – Published by: Forever Entertainment Puzzle games can go one of two ways for me; they’re either extremely frustrating or incredibly compelling. I’m pleased to report that OmoTomO falls into the latter category. A puzzle game featuring two snake-like plant creatures trying to make their way to the pots filled with water in […]

Review: Roll’d

Out: Now – Price: £1.79/$1.99 – Nintendo Switch A strange but oddly compelling little game, Roll’d dumps you into proceedings without telling you anything at all – your little character running along a pathway for…reasons. It takes a few seconds – and a few failures – to truly grasp what’s going on. You don’t control the character at all; in […]

First Impressions: Bloody Trains

A phrase I can be heard muttering to myself quite often on the commute home from work, Bloody Trains is another game from indie developer and purveyor of very odd experiences, Marginal Act. I’ve looked at two of their games before – baffling tea delivery simulator TUTUTUTU Tea Party and Vasilis. The former seems to share quite a lot of […]

Super Co-Op Adventure

Available now on PC (itch.io) – Price: Pay-What-You-Want If you’ve been reading my articles for a while, you’ll know that I love finding little known, clever indie titles and trying to give them a bit of exposure (and if you’re a new reader, welcome – I hope you like what you find on my site!). Super Co-Op Adventure is one […]

Preview: Pecaminosa

Pecaminosa – Due: End of 2020 – By: Cereal Games Though currently around a little way out from release (which is mooted for the end of 2020), Pecaminosa is an indie game that shows incredible promise. A ‘pixel noir’ game, Pecaminosa is an action-RPG title with a great visual style and superb character design. The story, which sees drunken ex-cop […]

Kickstarter: DicTater

I’ve always enjoyed Civ games – and turn based strategy games in general, but there’s always one problem: I’m awful at them. I seem to spend ages mucking around at a prehistoric level of development – when I finally encounter AI colonies, they’ve always outpaced me in technology and weapons by a good few hundred years, somehow. Still, I love […]

Preview: Dungeon Dreams

Releasing at Christmas, Dungeon Dreams is looking incredibly promising. Fusing elements of JRPGs, dating sims, life sims and even town building elements, developers DDreams Games promise 90+ hours of gameplay, roguelike elements, a non-linear plot, an open ended quest system and lots more besides. It’s incredibly ambitious, especially for a small studio production. Having been fortunate enough to play a […]
