Bite Sized Reviews: Aground Zero

Back from my slight hiatus with a new review! Aground Zero is an impressive remake of Fancy Fish Game's 2020 Aground game. For the decent price tag, this underground automation/colony sim is worth the investment!

February 20, 2024

I love weird games. Not the best intro you’ve written on here, Scar. That is probably true, but I’ve been unwell for a while and this is the first review I’ve written in over a week. Shoves the annoying brain thoughts back into the box. But yes, I’m back for now. After my Lil’ Guardsman review, […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Lil' Guardsman

I'm a little unwell at the moment, so apologies if today's article is a bit rambly! Today I feature Lil' Guardsman, a fantasy/comedic take on the popular Papers Please game from 2013. Don't sleep on this one!

February 12, 2024

If you took Papers Please, brought it into a funky fantasy world and added some hilarious writing, you get Lil’ Guardsman. I went in expecting a fun brew, and it exceeded all my expectations. Now that I think about it, I wonder why there haven’t been many iterations of Paper’s Please. That 2013 indie gem […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Roots of Yggdrasil

A new week dawns, and that means more reviews! Roots of Yggdrasil is an impressive citybuilder/roguelike hybrid in Early Access, but its addictive gameplay and excellent pricetag offers a lot!

February 11, 2024

Another review, oh yes! I hope everyone is having a pleasant month so far. February has been solid overall. I’ve been working on more reviews as well as my fantasy novel. To long-term readers of my reviews, you will probably know I enjoy Early Access. I’m not sure why I like them so much, but […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Enshrouded Early Impressions

Got a big one for today! Enshrouded launched a couple weeks ago: a dark fantasy, survival RPG created by Keen Games. I've played a decent chunk of the game recently and wanted to share my thoughts!

February 9, 2024

I’m getting 2021 vibes with this one. Remember early that year, when a certain Early Access survival game launched to massive acclaim? I think it was called Valheim. It exceeded expectations on all levels, even the developers were taken aback. So much so, that much of their roadmap was switched to bug fixing and optimisation. […]

Voxlands Preview Impressions

In today's article, I cover the demo build of Voxlands: an impressive voxel based sandbox game from the veins of Minecraft. This game looks pretty damn gorgeous, and there's a demo to play right now as part of Steam Next Fest!

February 7, 2024

I got the chance to preview the upcoming voxel-survival game Voxlands. More on that soon, because it’s impossible to mention Voxlands without bringing up its inspiration. That, of course, is Minecraft. Calling Minecraft a successful game is like calling ******* ‘a big planet’. Even more than the Pokemon games, Minecraft developed its reputation as the […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Age of Darkness Final Stand

A new review? Oh yes. Age of Darkness: Final Stand is an ambitious survival RTS, boasting a chunky campaign to boot. Here are my impressions!

February 2, 2024

They Are Billions was one game I never got good at. It did not matter what settings I played it in, or how I played, but every time I got overwhelmed by massive zombie hordes. It’s a solid game, but I suck at playing it! Almost as if Playside Studios heard my cry, they worked […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Lonestar Early Impressions

The first of many reviews to come! The past week has been big for gaming habits. Today I feature the space Western roguelike Lonestar, boasting great music and promising deckbuilding mechanics.

January 31, 2024

We have some busy weeks ahead! Before I delve into today’s review, a couple of little things first. I hope everyone’s keeping well. We’re approaching the end of January and the past week has resulted in a deluge of new opportunities. Huge thanks to all the great developers granting access to creators like me! February […]

Gamedev Interview: David Lloyd (Flight of Nova)

Our first interview of the year, and it's a banger. David Lloyd has been working on his ambitious (and awesome) space sim Flight of Nova for a couple of years now. Today, I got to sit down with him for a quick chat. Enjoy!

January 25, 2024

One of my goals for 2024 is to expand developer interviews. Last year saw a major increase in demand, and I want to help support game developers as much as I can. While I work on the next couple of reviews, I sat down with David Lloyd, creator of Flight of Nova. Flight of Nova […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Return From Core

We're back with a new review! Today, I cover my impressions of Return From Core, an ambitious dungeon crawler meets farming sim.

January 24, 2024

January has been a busy month for me so far. I’ve started a new freelance gig regarding lore editing, and I’ve started remaking my Patreon. It will cover both my work here for, as well as support for my other projects. Once I’ve completed the background work, I’ll reopen it officially. I have some […]

Bite Sized Reviews: The Longing

The Longing is technically too long a game for me to review yet. It's over 400 days long, after all! So enjoy my early impressions and I will return to it in another episode later in the year. Gotta make sure the little Shade does his job!

January 19, 2024

So…. This isn’t a review, of sorts. Yep, my title isn’t the most accurate for this game. The Longing is a 400-day-long game, after all. You heard that correctly. The Longing is a few years old now, launching back in May 2020. That was smack in the middle of worldwide lockdowns during the Covid pandemic. […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Amnesia The Bunker

In today's episode, I cover the chilling and brilliant Amnesia the Bunker. It's been a while since I've played a game I'm terrible at, yet in love with all the same. Fans of immersive horror and non-linear survival games will love this one!

January 15, 2024

Sometimes, games are so chilling that you’re forced to push through. While I’m a big fan of games that allow all sorts of atrocities, a few games push my comfort zone. It is strange, isn’t it? I can happily force prisoners in my Rimworld colony to fight each other for the right to eat, but […]

Songs of Silence: Preview Impressions

We're officially back! Things will be slow on here for a while as I get back into writing, but I have my early thoughts regarding the Songs of Silence demo, which you can play right now on Steam!

January 6, 2024

We’re back! January inches on, and it is that time for more games. The coming weeks will be like a bit of a hangover on here. I have a couple of interviews I held with developers backed up from December, so they will go up first. Then there are the reviews! December was a wild […]
