Gamedev Interview: Cowcat Games

Taking a small break from the GOTY series, I bring you an interview I held with Fabrice Breton, developer of the excellent visual novel/beatemup hybrid Brok the InvestiGator!

We’re taking a small break from my GOTY event to bring an interview! Cowcat Games were generous enough to accept my offer of an interview with them. A solo developer, Fabrice Breton released Brok the InvestiGator earlier this year, a truly fantastic beat-em-up/visual novel game that’s caught my attention. I haven’t been able to write […]

GOTY 2022: Best of Early Access Part 2!

In the second episode of my GOTY series, I cover the second half of my favourite Early Access games this year, as well as some that barely missed the cut. It's a long episode, so get comfy!

Welcome to part two of the Best of Early Access segment of my GOTY event! I talked about five of my favorite Early Access games released in the last episode. There’s no big introduction from me this time, so let’s get cracking! You can check out Episode 1 of my GOTY series by checking out […]

GOTY 2022: Best of Early Access (Part 1)

It's that time of year again where I talk loads about my favourite (and least favourite) games of the last twelve months. In this first episode, I cover five of my ten favourite Early Access games from 2022!

Another year has gone by! Welcome to my GOTY series. Last year was a big event, and 2022 will be my most extensive and ambitious series yet. Seven articles are planned this year, with a guaranteed six. The seventh is a funny awards thing on my mind because I think it’ll be amusing, but I’ll […]

Against the Storm Impressions Review

In my final review before the GOTY series, I cover Against the Storm, a fantastic dark city builder that pushes players to their limits!

It’s getting colder, and Christmas music is blasting away in shops already. Far too freaking soon for that. It barely waited until Halloween was over! I’m back once again! I planned to make this a typical Indie Corner episode: to write a final episode for the year before moving on to my GOTY series. However, […]

Gamedev Interview: Revolution Industry

We've got a new interview with Jay from Revolution Industry! They are working on a cool steampunk, airship sim game Airships: Kingdoms Adrift and hope to release it in a few months. Come say hi!

As I start planning for December’s big event, I’ve been working on more gamedev interviews to share with you all. I find these fascinating, because we rarely get to see the other side of this industry. I do this to show people that behind the technology and sales, there are living beings who develop and […]

Indie Corner Episode 25: Dinos, Castles and Aliens

The penultimate Indie Corner episode brings you three recent indies: Terror of Hermasaurus, Open the Gates and Batora: Lost Haven!

You know, sometimes you look at your gaming backlog and wonder how you will finish it. I stopped thinking about my library as a backlog, choosing instead to call it a sandpit. I play what I want to when I want to. It’s been a gruelling year, but I can always rely on gaming to […]

Gamedev Interview: Labrador Studios

Live By the Sword Tactics is an indie tactical sim that released on October 28th! Today I bring you an interview with its lead creator, Matthew Hamilton!

This was supposed to go up on the 28th November but I’ve had some delays recently, apologies for that! Halloween is well and truly upon us, and I’ve eaten far too much chocolate yet again. I’m not even sorry about that. I have an interview with Matthew Hamilton from Labrador Studios to share with you […]

Indie Corner Episode 24: Hackers, Flowers and Spaceships, Oh My!

We review three new games today! Wydle Flowers, Deadeye Deepfake Simulacrum and Cosmoteer are today's helpings!

We are officially in November! October was a long and rough month for me, at least healthwise, but I seem to be on the mend. It was also a massive month for games with lots of big releases. The standouts for me were Persona 5 Royal finally coming to PC and the massive Rimworld expansion, […]

Gamedev Interview: Open the Gates!

We're close to Halloween, and I bring another interview! Today we welcome Robin, the developer of recent indie game Open the Gates.

Halloween is right around the corner, and I have very few plans besides the usual: scary games and copious amounts of food. I’ve got a new interview to share today with you all: a new Stronghold-esque, side-scroller city building game released not long ago, Open the Gates. I was able to grab the brains behind […]

Indie Corner Episode 23: A Time of Giants

We've got three big indie games to cover today: Slime Rancher 2, the behemoth that is Terra Invicta made by the Long War devs as well as debut RPG Lost Eidolons. These are heavy hitters!

We’re approaching the end of 2022. Honestly? It’s been a crappy year even as the 2020s go so far, but at least we’ve been able to play some fantastic games! Even considering all the significant delays and pushbacks, I’ve had an incredible year with gaming, far more so than in 2021. The delays are understandable. […]
