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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
