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 […]

Review: Killer Chambers (PC)

Version Played: Steam – Out Now (£3.99) – Developed & Published By: Village Bench There’s a real thrill in discovering a wonderful indie title that you just don’t get when you’re playing a big budget blockbuster that everyone’s been discussing to death. Part of it, I think, is the joy of discovery that you just can’t get with AAA games […]

Review: Blindy (Switch)

Out Now – Version Played: Switch (£6.29/$7.99) – Developed by: Radoslaw Felich – Published by: Ultimate Games Though the premise may initially seem somewhat tasteless, there’s a fascinating question at […]

Well, that escalated quickly…

The digital ink has barely dried on my very first Nintendo Life review – and yet, here’s another one! Thank you to everyone who was kind about my Beast Quest review, especially those of you who wanted me to get a chance to review a decent game next. Your wish came true! So without any further ado – here’s my […]

Corpus Malicious – Update

I featured the deliciously dark DnD 5e companion Corpus Malicious shortly after its crowdfunding campaign launched on Kickstarter (at which point, impressively, it had already smashed its funding goal) – and, with ten days to go on the campaign, I thought I’d check in and see how it was doing. Turns out the answer to that is very well indeed. […]

Review: Lonely Mountains: Downhill (XBox One)

Available Now – Version Played: Xbox One – Developed by: Megagon Industries – Published by: Thunderful Publishing Though Lonely Mountains: Downhill bills itself as a relaxing ride down a mountain trail, I actually find it pretty stressful most of the time. That’s not to say that I haven’t enjoyed it; nor that the scenery, art style and general ambience aren’t […]
