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!
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!
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: 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!
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!
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: 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.
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 […]
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!
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. […]
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!
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 […]
Bite Sized Reviews: The Night Before Christmas
We have a surprise duo of reviews today! Come in and get warm by the fire as I cover Beyond Sunset and Astlibra Revision.
Taking a little break in the big GOTY series with some more Bite Sized reviews! It has been a busy and brutal year. As much as I enjoy covering games and writing all about them, this annual GOTY series is always hard work. I know my Christmas plans will be relaxation only. No reviewing, no […]
GOTY 2023: Best of Early Access (Part 2)
This went up a little earlier than I expected! In the second of my GOTY series, I discuss the other best of Early Access titles. From USC: Counterforce to Mortal Sin, there's a little something for everyone.
Welcome to the second part of my 2023 GOTY series! Previously, I discussed some of my favourite Early Access releases of the year. We’re continuing that today. Read Part 1 by clicking on the link down below: Cyber Knights: Flashpoint Trese Brothers make cool games and are some of the most passionate developers I have […]
GOTY 2023: Best of Early Access (Part 1)
It is that time of year! The occasion I write a ton of game reviews and talk about the past twelve months in gaming. We've got a big event ahead, and this is the first part: Best of Early Access! In this two parter, I cover some amazing games in development, give them a go!
The end of another year is nearly upon us, and we know what that means. It’s time for another Game of the Year series! I’ve made no major changes to my schedule or rule-set for 2023. This is almost identical to last year’s event. What an odd year it has been. We’ve had some insane […]
