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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

Weekly Round Up

Well, that was a weird week. Travelling to a very intimidating meeting for my day job and having a day out of work to attend a funeral for a beloved family member added to my general lack of energy this week – and yet…I still, somehow, managed to get an article published every day. Let’s see what I covered this […]

Chains of Fury – Preview

It’s not often that a game’s press release is brought to my attention and immediately grabs me with such a striking and instantly appealing visual style, but Chains of Fury has done just that. With a comic book style that looks incredibly close to the aesthetic of artists such as Mike Mignola – clean, colourful and with great, copius use […]

Robot Squad Simulator – Switch

It’s only been a few days since I took a look at a Simulator game – and here we are with another. With this one, however, I wasn’t sure what to expect at all. I hadn’t seen any prior coverage of it; no screenshots or videos at all, so I was going in to Robot Squad Simulator completely blind. From […]

Car Mechanic Manager – Switch – First Impressions

Released this week on Switch is a port of mobile and PC game, Car Mechanic Manager. Things start off relatively promisingly with a reasonably amusing, brief cartoon intro; the protagonist, an excellent but unappreciated mechanic, decides to leave her job and set up her own business – fixing cars, fulfilling customer orders and managing your premises is the name of […]
