Bite Sized Reviews: Little Odyssey

It is that time again! I have some big updates to share with you all but I have a hankering for relaxing games. Little Odyssey is one of those. And you have a pet turtle.

There’s something oddly relaxing about doing something so mundane. Even taking something as simple as ‘Fantasy Delivery Boy’ into account, I’ve found a strange kinship with games that make boring concepts addictive to play. Death Stranding took that idea and dialled it all the way up to what I call ‘Batshit Insane’. It’s a game […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Time to Morp

Sometimes all we need is a comfortable colony sim with cute critters. If you're like me, and just need a break from all the cheerful murder simulators and slaughtering peasants, then Time to Morp might be the game for you!

It’s Morping Time! And that wins the award for the least original phrase related to this game in the universe. Great job. What a busy couple of weeks. Between some massive Early Access releases and LucaNarraCon, I’ve digested games like I happily digest cheesecake. Manor Lords, No Rest For the Wicked and Hades 2 are […]

A Slice of LudoNarraCon

LudoNarraCon is from May 9th to May 13th, and we've got a ton of cool games to try out! This is just a little slice of what's on offer. Happy Weekend and enjoy the festival!

I love it when we get these big indie events. They are a great way to try out a ton of cool games and take a sneak peek at upcoming titles. I want to thank Fellow Traveler for organizing this event! LudoNarraCon runs until May 13th and covers many games that feature the art of […]

Manor Lords Impressions Review: Incredible Potential (But Worth Playing Now?)

It took a while, but I have my early impressions on Manor Lords! We've seen several massive Early Access releases already this year, but does Manor Lords live up to the lofty expectations? Let's find out. Despite being early in development, I found that Manor Lords offers a lot already.

As I write up my early thoughts on Manor Lords, my laptop’s sitting in the corner, smoking a cigar and happy with life. Why is that? Manor Lords can be fairly punishing on modest hardware, and while my laptop ran decently enough, the poor bastard coughed up his lungs. Thanks to the cloud gaming magic […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Empires Shall Fall

Advance Wars. A series I hope returns properly as a new game rather than just a remake! Reboot Camp was pretty fun though. Empires of War is a strategy title that takes inspiration from that franchise, and it holds up rather well on its own too.

Advance Wars is one hell of a drug, and Empires Shall Fall might just be the next best thing on PC right now. Fair warning, I ran into some technical issues before writing this. Not a fault of the game, but I had a minor outage on my laptop during some freak hailstorm yesterday. I […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Bulwark Falconeer Chronicles

Server had to be reset so yep, this is me scrambling to repost! Tomas Sala's chill new game Bulwark: Falconeer Chronicles scratches that relaxing game itch, and there isn't really another city builder on the market like this.

Bulwark: Falconeer Chronicles is challenging to write about. You can probably tell given how long it has taken me to write this up! It might be one of the most unique games on the market today. While its hands-off style can be overwhelming, I found the extensive freedom refreshing. It is definitely not for everyone, […]

Indie Corner Episode 35: The Final Frontier

In Episode 35, I cover recent release Dungeon Drafters, a solid dungeon crawler/deckbuilding hybrid, as well as the incredibly ambitious space RPG Spacebourne 2!

So… these AAA releases have been a disappointment so far this year, huh? I’ve lost count of how many have launched in such a messy state. We’re at — what? Seven now in 2023 alone? It is so frustrating to see. I think my little ‘gaming laptop’ is secretly glad it cannot run these games. […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Aquarist

While flawed in its interface and performance, I found Aquarist a commendable and enjoyable management sim. It's rare I get to make my own aquarium from scratch in a game!

I hope everyone is enjoying a pleasant April! I’ve been inactive for the past couple of weeks to give myself a break. My toes are healing nicely but I miss going for walks. The weather is slowly improving, so once my feet have sufficiently healed, I’ll be happy to get around again. Back to the […]

Gamedev Interview: Trainwiz

It's been busy here, but I'm back with an appetizing dev interview. Modding legend Trainwiz recently launched his first commercial game Underspace. Everything about Underspace oozes creativity, and I'm happy to get to interview him. Hope you enjoy!

So, we’ve had a bit of a dry spell on here! That’s intentional. I recently had toe surgery and while that doesn’t affect my ability to write (I do not write or type with my feet), the pain has made it difficult to concentrate on much else! However, I’ve been working on several reviews during […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Lightyear Frontier

It's robot fighting time! Just kidding. There's no fighting in this game, but it's partly why I find Lightyear Frontier appealing. Besides, the idea of building a comfortable farming base in a gigantic mech suit of Doom feeds my interests! Read on to find out more!

Usually, when I wear a gigantic robot suit, it is for conquering my enemies. Not so much in Lightyear Frontier! This new game by Amplifier Studios grabbed my attention. While unleashing my robotic hell upon the galaxy in games like Battletech and Mechwarrior 5 Mercenaries, I had a little conversation with my fellow mercenaries. It […]
