Review: Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Version Played: Xbox One (Xbox One X Enhanced) – also available on PS4 and PC Lockdown is a funny thing. I wouldn’t normally have had the time to work my way through a single Tomb Raider game in a reasonable period of time, let alone an entire trilogy. Yet that’s exactly what I’ve been able to do over the last […]

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 […]

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.

Review: Dungeon Adventure

Price: Free – Available via Amazon Alexa-enabled devices – Website Though there’s a lot of privacy-related concerns surrounding voice activated, always connected tech (which are more than justified, I might add), there’s some incredibly cool features that few people may know about, let alone even try.

If you’d told me that I would be playing an entirely new Game Boy game 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 […]

Goblin Quest – TTRPG

I’ve been fascinated with tabletop RPGs since the early 80s, as I’ve previously mentioned elsewhere on the blog. Dungeons & Dragons was one of my earliest, post-Star Wars obsessions; the […]

Tiny Dungeon – A Great Starter Tabletop RPG

A few years ago, fuelled by passionate creators on Kickstarter, I backed a number of cheap, rules-light tabletop RPGs in the hope of finally convincing family and friends to play. I’d never been able to talk them into it, as they were often intimidated by the size of rulebooks and even the relative complexity of character creation. I mean, they […]
