Secure, Contain and Protect, in SCP: Secret Files – A Review
I absolutely adore the concept of the SCP Foundation… You may have heard about SCPs before, but I feel it’s worth contextualising the idea to show just how deep the rabbit hole goes. Created in early 2008, the SCP website is a Wikipedia of fictional content, filled to the brim with fan contributions designed to intrigue, terrify and entertain its readers.
Indie Corner Episode 22: Sailing the Indy Seas
Today I cover ambitious Early Access RPG Isles of Etherion, sequel to Salt in Salt 2, and Stardew Valley-esque game Potion Permit!
This episode took a little longer to write than I expected. It’s been a busy month here, with plenty of things to keep me occupied. 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 […]

The Ardenfall demo went live recently: a promising and ambitious indie RPG. Today, I interview the minds behind it!

One of the coolest demos you can play on PC right now is Ardenfall, an ambitious and fascinating RPG created by Spellcast Studios.

Indie Corner Episode 21: A Busy Month
Back with a new episode of The Indie Corner! I review Roadwarden, Gloomwood and Absolute Tactics: Daughter's of Mercy today, three promising indie games!
Episode 20 was a special occasion, and I’m blown away by the feedback and responses I’ve received from people. I love showcasing games I’ve played, though I’ve been focusing the series on indie titles released this year. It’s a perfect series to show off how strong the indie gaming industry has been in 2022. I […]
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 […]
Exploring TactiCon: Early Impressions!
I had the opportunity to play some really cool games for this weekend, big thanks to Firesquid and Hooded Horse for the occasion!
I would like to thank Hooded Horse and Firesquid for hosting this event. Strategy games are seeing somewhat of a resurgence in the last couple of years, and these guys have done great in supporting those brave enough to tackle the market. TactiCon is currently available on Steam until the 26th, and covers a host […]
Indie Corner: Episode 20 - Milestone Special!
It's a big one today: Episode 20 of The Indie Corner! I give my impressions on three awesome titles: The Wandering Village, Regiments and Cult of the Lamb. Three different and excellent games with their own quirks. There's something for everyone in today's episode!
It’s a big moment. We’re on Episode 20 of my Indie Corner series! When I started writing these for the website, they were created as bite-sized snacks for people to sink their teeth into. With so many games released, it’s difficult for companies to get the word out about their products. I didn’t expect this […]
Gamedev Interview: Han Zhiyu (Chaos Galaxy)
I have several interviews in progress with game developers. It's a busy and exciting time for the website! I have an interview with Han Zhiyu today, veteran of the gaming industry and creator of the Chaos Galaxy series.
It’s been a busy time here. So I was supposed to go to the Lake District last week, but a late-scheduled train strike derailed my plans. That might be a blessing in disguise, because this might be one of the most productive times the website has ever had. I’ve spent most of last week talking […]
Indie Corner Episode 19: Exploring the New
I'm planning to do something special for Episode 20. Today though, I review Catizens and Prime of Flames, two cool Early Access titles.
Welcome to Episode 19 of the Indie Corner! September is upon us, which brings us more games to try out. We’re approaching the final quarter of 2022, which means, of course, my GOTY series! I really need to start planning that. I’ve got my eye on several releases due this month. Most of these will […]
