Ctrl Alt Ego Impressions Review: Sheer Egotistic Brilliance

Unfortunately, I’ve come down with some health issues again, and while I’m on the mend, it’s having a knock-on effect on other parts of my health, especially brain fog. As a result, I’ve found it difficult to concentrate on things. My mental health […]

As a result, some content is being delayed as I recover, sorry about that! I have a cool interview today with developer nobodyshalleraseyou, […]

Today I cover ambitious Early Access RPG Isles of Etherion, sequel to Salt in Salt 2, and Stardew Valley-esque game Potion Permit!

I’ve already started planning December’s GOTY event, and I’ll talk about that when I’m ready. In the meantime, I also returned to Twitch streaming for the first time since May. […]

Gamedev Interview: Pahris Entertainment

Space Wreck is one of my most anticipated games right now. I played some of the non-linear RPG demo this summer and had a blast. I was able to get an interview with the awesome guys behind it!

We’re continuing our interview boom! It’s been an incredible few weeks for the website, and I hope to keep that going! Demos are amazing for gaming because they give the consumers a chance to experience a slice of the product. Even if there are debates on how useful they are for developers, I’m always fortunate […]

Gamedev Interview: Francis Clark (Ctrl Alt Ego)

Today, I interview Francis Clark, developer of the excellent immersive sim Ctrl Alt Ego. This game seriously needs more attention.

So I’ve been playing a lot of games lately. With so many out there, sometimes we get amazing games which just don’t get the attention they deserve. One of these games is Ctrl Alt Ego, a fascinating immersive sim exploring robotics, hacking and survival. I didn’t even hear about it until recently which was a […]
