GOTY 2022: Hidden Gems
We're on Episode 3 of my annual GOTY series! Today, I'll be covering five of my favourite games that've gone under the radar. They may be flawed, or overlooked, or both, but I've had fun with these, and hopefully you'll have fun too!
I hope everyone is keeping well! It’s the coldest morning of the year so far, and I’m hiding in my bedroom with a jumper and thermal socks to keep warm. We’re onto the hidden gem segment of this year’s GOTY event. This is the episode where I recommend some of the…more quirky games released this […]
Gamedev Interview: Cowcat Games
Taking a small break from the GOTY series, I bring you an interview I held with Fabrice Breton, developer of the excellent visual novel/beatemup hybrid Brok the InvestiGator!
We’re taking a small break from my GOTY event to bring an interview! Cowcat Games were generous enough to accept my offer of an interview with them. A solo developer, Fabrice Breton released Brok the InvestiGator earlier this year, a truly fantastic beat-em-up/visual novel game that’s caught my attention. I haven’t been able to write […]
GOTY 2022: Best of Early Access Part 2!
In the second episode of my GOTY series, I cover the second half of my favourite Early Access games this year, as well as some that barely missed the cut. It's a long episode, so get comfy!
Welcome to part two of the Best of Early Access segment of my GOTY event! I talked about five of my favorite Early Access games released in the last episode. There’s no big introduction from me this time, so let’s get cracking! You can check out Episode 1 of my GOTY series by checking out […]
GOTY 2022: Best of Early Access (Part 1)
It's that time of year again where I talk loads about my favourite (and least favourite) games of the last twelve months. In this first episode, I cover five of my ten favourite Early Access games from 2022!
Another year has gone by! Welcome to my GOTY series. Last year was a big event, and 2022 will be my most extensive and ambitious series yet. Seven articles are planned this year, with a guaranteed six. The seventh is a funny awards thing on my mind because I think it’ll be amusing, but I’ll […]
Against the Storm Impressions Review
In my final review before the GOTY series, I cover Against the Storm, a fantastic dark city builder that pushes players to their limits!
It’s getting colder, and Christmas music is blasting away in shops already. Far too freaking soon for that. It barely waited until Halloween was over! I’m back once again! I planned to make this a typical Indie Corner episode: to write a final episode for the year before moving on to my GOTY series. However, […]
Indie Corner Episode 25: Dinos, Castles and Aliens
The penultimate Indie Corner episode brings you three recent indies: Terror of Hermasaurus, Open the Gates and Batora: Lost Haven!
You know, sometimes you look at your gaming backlog and wonder how you will finish it. I stopped thinking about my library as a backlog, choosing instead to call it a sandpit. I play what I want to when I want to. It’s been a gruelling year, but I can always rely on gaming to […]
Gamedev Interview: Labrador Studios
Live By the Sword Tactics is an indie tactical sim that released on October 28th! Today I bring you an interview with its lead creator, Matthew Hamilton!
This was supposed to go up on the 28th November but I’ve had some delays recently, apologies for that! Halloween is well and truly upon us, and I’ve eaten far too much chocolate yet again. I’m not even sorry about that. I have an interview with Matthew Hamilton from Labrador Studios to share with you […]
Indie Corner Episode 23: A Time of Giants
We've got three big indie games to cover today: Slime Rancher 2, the behemoth that is Terra Invicta made by the Long War devs as well as debut RPG Lost Eidolons. These are heavy hitters!
We’re approaching the end of 2022. Honestly? It’s been a crappy year even as the 2020s go so far, but at least we’ve been able to play some fantastic games! Even considering all the significant delays and pushbacks, I’ve had an incredible year with gaming, far more so than in 2021. The delays are understandable. […]
Ctrl Alt Ego Impressions Review: Sheer Egotistic Brilliance
One of 2022's unforgettable experiences, Ctrl Alt Ego combines non-linear gameplay and a dark story into a brilliant immersive sim not seen in mainstream gaming in years.
So this was originally going to be a full Indie Corner episode. Unfortunately, I’ve come down with some health issues again, and while I’m on the mend, it’s having a knock-on effect on other parts of my health, especially brain fog. As a result, I’ve found it difficult to concentrate on things. My mental health […]
Gamedev Interview: Deadeye Deepfake Simulacrum
While I'm covering from another bout of illness, I have a new interview to share today! Immersive sim Deadeye Deepfake Simulacrum released last week and I got the chance to interview the dev!
So things have been slower for me lately. I was supposed to have this interview out last week but I’ve been recovering from a nasty stomach bug that completely knocked me out. As a result, some content is being delayed as I recover, sorry about that! I have a cool interview today with developer nobodyshalleraseyou, […]
