Weekly Round-Up

Just as yesterday was the first time in a long time that I’ve looked at my recent Game Pass Adventures, I’ve not done a round up of my articles for quite a while either. It’s always useful for me to take a look back at what I’ve covered too, because I seem to be able to cover quite a bit […]

Game Pass Adventures

It’s been a while since I last wrote an article covering the games that I’ve been playing on Game Pass, but there seems to have been an awful lot of conversation on social media recently about the Xbox One’s biggest selling points – and almost everyone in the discussion agreed that Game Pass has been an absolutely incredible service that’s […]

Kickstarter: Neko Ghost, Jump!

I’ve always had a soft spot for cutesy 2D platformers, having grown up playing them in the 80s and 90s – and, mostly thanks to indie developers, they seem to be just as popular as ever today. The 3D platformer has been undergoing a bit of a resurgence recently too, with games such as Yooka-Laylee, not to mention the remastered […]

Review: OddyTree

Surreal, deliberately difficult to control physics games have grown in popularity over the last few years. Games such as Octodad: Dadliest Catch – in which an octopus disguised as a human has to ensure his true cephalopod nature is hidden from the world – and I Am Bread – where you play as a slice of wayward bread on its […]

First Impressions: Coffee Talk

Though I’ve played a few hours of Coffee Talk at this stage, it’s still too early to give a proper review of it. However, I’ve been dying to write about it ever since I started playing. It’s a wonderfully unique concept; essentially a visual novel in which you play as a night time barista in a coffee shop, Coffee Talk […]

Review: Pack Master

Available on: Switch, Android & iOS – Version Played: Switch – Price (Switch): £4.49/$4.99 – Published by: Forever Entertainment Tapping into the same oddly therapeutic arranging of objects as games such as Tetris – albeit in a far less abstract sense – Pack Master sees you trying to pack all of your stuff into increasingly oddly shaped and cramped suitcases. […]

Review: Flufftopia

Available for PC via itch.io – Price: $1.50 – By: SmokeSomeFrogs I hate gatekeeping. People telling others that what they’re doing isn’t right based on some imaginary, arbitrary rules that […]

Review: Sewer Rave

Available on itch.io Is it ok to post a review if you’ve played a game for ages and still don’t know what you’re doing? Is it ok to write a review if you’ve spent a decent amount of time on a game and you don’t even know what’s going on? I pondered these questions – and others – after sinking […]

Review: Doodle Date

Available for: Windows – Buy: Steam or itch.io – By: Nick Lives (Steam & itch.io) When I first checked out Doodle Date, I thought it looked like a light-hearted, creative little spin on the dating sims that seem so prevalent these days. Whimsical illustrations accompany the screenshots and trailer – and even though my artwork is nowhere up to the […]

Review: Maneater

I was far too young for Jaws when I first watched it in the early 80s, but I became obsessed with it – and sharks in general. The fearsome, toothy killers of the deep are a perennially popular oceanic villain too; Shark Week is a thing, of course – and shark horror is essentially its own genre now, even if […]

Kickstarter: Pixel Bison

Hot on the heels of the well received issue 1 (reviewed by yours truly here), as well as pre-orders now being live for the second issue (here!), creator and editor Andrew McMaster has now launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund the third issue. Though the first and second issues have been self-funded – partly as a proof-of-concept to […]

Review: Art Sqool

Available as part of the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice & Equality (which now features an incredible 1658 games and has raised more than $6m for a very worthy cause), Art Sqool is an odd, but charming and very absorbing game in which you’ll create art based on prompts given to you by an AI tutor, with the ultimate aim […]

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 […]
