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 […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Cave of Phantom Mists

Astlibra Revision was one of the best games of 2022, and one of the most overlooked. It took me over a year to play it, after all. Today I chat a little about the DLC that launched in early Feburary: Cave of Phantom Mist!

It’s time to take a little trip down memory lane. Honestly, I should have had this up sooner, but things do get away from us sometimes, don’t they? TheThousandScar here! As I’m typing up this article, the rain is pouring outside. Three guesses about the country, huh? Yep, lovely old British weather…. Yes… lovely. I’m […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Let's School

And we are back to school! Not really, thank god for that. However, Let's School by Pathea Games might just get you in the mood to play a cosy management sim!

I’ve loved management games since I was young. The very first ones I played were the Bullfrog sims, like Theme Park and Theme Hospital. With such a diverse pool of games in this genre, I am spoiled for choice. The last few weeks have been a wild ride, haven’t they? I’m just about on track […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Immortal Life

We got a little farming game for my showcase today! Immortal Life is an Wuxia life sim with some interesting game mechanics.

Plans change a lot. I planned to include this alongside my review of Our Adventurer Guild earlier in the week. However, I’ve been following this single review per article formula for a while now, and I’m finding it easier to focus on one impressions article at a time. My big Indie Corner series will return […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Our Adventurer Guild

I have been busy! Our Adventurer Guild leaves Early Access next month, and I got the chance to play with its current build. A meaty management sim and party adventure crawler, this game punches well above its low price tag!

Time for a new review! I’ve been a little more organized than I have been lately. With plenty of games to cover, I am working on a new host of game reviews and interviews over the coming weeks. We are a small team here, but I could not be happier with the progress. It feels […]

Bite Sized Reviews: Thyria

Thyria offers more customization and freedom to experiment with its mechanics than most dungeon crawlers, although I found it confusing at times. Still, this is a gorgeous strategy game with a fantastic setting!

I’ll be honest. When I sat down to write up my thoughts on this game, I was stumped on what to talk about. That doesn’t happen often for me. There are times when I get stuck on a video game, and then I struggle with converting my thoughts into words. For example, if I’m terrible […]

Zoria Age of Shattering Preview

Zoria Age of Shattering launched recently, and I got the chance to play it early. While it's a little rough around the edges, its a meaty RPG with enough heart to match its ambition!

I’ve been looking forward to Zoria Age of Shattering. The tactical RPG genre has long been one of my favourite genres, and 2023’s unparalleled success in Baldur’s Gate 3 has inspired a whole new generation. If you haven’t played Larian’s most recent masterpiece, give it a go sometime. I’m not here to gush about Baldur’s […]
