Early Access Impressions: Exoplanet: First Contact

Available Now on Steam: £14.99 – Developed by: Alersteam – Published by: GrabTheGames The Western – concerned as it often is with taming a new frontier, full of possibilities, danger and excitement – seems to be constantly appealing. Likewise, the Space Western, that shares many of the same tropes, imagery and themes as its earthbound, historically-based forebear, holds a similar […]

Review: Nova Drift

Available Now on Steam and itch.io – Price: $14.99 When you first start playing Nova Drift, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s essentially an updated, upgraded, neon drenched Asteroids tribute. Your ship is controlled with thrust using the left trigger of a controller, with your weapon fired using the right trigger. So far, so standard, right? Then you start […]

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 […]

Review: Hot Date

Out now (Windows, macOS & Linux) – Price: Pay What You Want (Drop the developer a *insert local currency here* or two – it’s worth it!) Speed dating is something that has never appealed to me. I have enough awkwardness and anxiety when meeting a single person, let alone several in quick succession. So I can’t say how realistic speed […]

Still coming… (NSFW)

I almost can’t believe that I’m writing about this again. The first time I wrote about this was last year, early on in my blogging days – and quickly became my most viewed post, holding that record for a number of months. Yet here we are. 2020 has arrived and Wanking Simulator is coming. That’s probably a poor choice of […]

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: 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: 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 […]

Weekly Round Up

I thought I’d try something a little different today. As regular readers and close friends will know, I write daily – and I somehow manage to cover an awful lot of ground in a very short space of time. It’s very easy for readers who aren’t following me or being alerted to my new articles to miss them – and […]
