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 […]
Announcing TacticCon: Press Release! September 22nd-26th
A press release? I don’t do these often! However, we’ve got an awesome event on Steam this weekend and I wanted to showcase it. TactiCon is hosted by Firesquid and Hooded Horse, and will celebrate dozens of indie strategy and tactical games. I want to thank them for giving me the opportunity to help cover […]
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 […]
Gamedev Interview: Moral Anxiety Studio (Roadwarden)
I bring a developer interview with Moral Anxiety Studio today! The creator of immersive text-based RPG Roadwarden, which should go live the time this interview is out!
As I get this ready, it’s a very foggy day here in the UK. You’d think it was Silent Hill out there! It’s a nice break from the horrid humidity, though. I’ve been playing plenty of games lately, and my 2022 GOTY series is ramping up. Right now, I have over thirty games battling it […]
Reviews and Developer Interviews: My Process
We’re officially in September! While I have several writing projects in the works, I thought I would write something about how my review/interview process works. This year has been my most active yet for writing game articles. While a lot of that has been down to my unemployment and health issues, I just love talking […]
Continuing my Journey With the Steam Deck
Hope you're not getting tired of these, because I'm having too much fun with the Steam Deck. Today, I talk about two games from 2015: Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Fallout 4's experience on the Steam Deck.
We are officially in September! This year has passed like wildfire, I don’t understand it. It’s been a busy month for me. I’ve massively increased my activity on the website, as you can tell by the articles I published in August. There have been several game dev interviews and reviews, and I still have plenty […]
Gamedev Interview: Mikhail Sherstennikov (Regiments Developer, Microprose)
I love talking with game developers. Today's interview is with Mikhail Sherstennikov, solo developer of new RTS game Regiments.
This has been a productive summer for me! I hope everyone is keeping okay. One of my favourite publishers of old were Microprose: a giant in the 1980s who specialized in strategy games. After many years of silence, they returned with a vengeance in 2021 with two releases: Highfleet and Carrier Command 2. While they […]
Indie Corner Episode 18: Reviving Old Classics
Today I cover two games which try to recreate the originals! We've got Coromon, a solid spiritual successor to the Pokemon series and Deus Novum, an exciting solo project that is attempting what few have tried: recreating Lionhead Studio's beloved cult classic Black and White.
We are approaching the end of August. The last few years have flown by, haven’t they? It feels like I woke up yesterday and it was still March. It’s odd how time goes, sometimes. I hope everyone is keeping well and trying to survive the heat! Things have fortunately cooled down where I live. As […]
Flawed Games Can Still Be Enjoyable!
I’ve been liking more games lately. It makes a refreshing change. It’s so easy in the current world to feel skeptical about everything, especially in the games industry. We see it all the time now; people find that negative news and discussing problems are easier to generate interest. Nothing gets people talking like a broken […]
ADACA Impressions Review: A True Hidden Gem
With its impressive depth, myraid of game modes and excellent visual design, ADACA is one of the coolest FPS's you'll play this year.
The ‘Boomer Shooter’ genre has ramped up in recent years. The golden era of DOOM, Unreal Tournament, Quake, and Wolfenstein was an incredibly happy time for many, and they are still being played to this day. No wonder so many indie developers have risen to the occasion, releasing a slew of titles designed to feed […]
