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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Learning to Enjoy Flawed Games
I ended up with more flawed games I enjoy playing, so decided to continue! Today, I cover Fallout 4, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Pokemon Sword and Shield.
Rain has finally arrived! That sounds weird, seeing how I live in the UK and it’s usually notorious for how much miserable rainfall we get. This summer has been different, but finally it seems I get a break from the heat, at least for a little while. In my last Flawed Games title, I covered […]
Indie Corner Episode 17: Catching Up
Today, I cover an excellent hidden gem in Devil Spire as well as the sequel to Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator. Read more for my impressions on both!
The summer has been a bit thin for big releases, hasn’t it? That doesn’t mean no good games are coming out, of course! As I write this, we’re halfway through August. It’ll probably be later when this article finally goes live, but we’ve seen some pretty solid releases already. Two Point Campus, an excellent sequel […]
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 […]
