Anoxemia

by Bevan Clatworthyon 12/04/2017
The fear of the deep blue is one that a lot of people, myself included share. Drowning, sharks, the darkness swallowing you up as you sink down into the watery depths, it all evokes a sense of trepidation, a sense of being out of control and dying in painful, terror filled dread. Have I set […]

Inside

by Callum Tyndallon 09/07/2016
Inside is a difficult game to discuss. With a length of only 4 hours or so, there’s little enough game that it’s hard to mention anything without it being a potentially huge spoiler. And when talking about a game receiving this level of critical acclaim, reaching the upper echelons of Metacritic within the first few […]

A Tale of UnEpic Proportions

by MrCraiggyon 16/04/2016
If you hadn’t guessed by now, I’m somewhat partial to a good adventure. I like to go to new places, I like to experience new things, I like the fantasy and wonderment of literature, film and game. It’s no surprise then that when a game such as UnEpic comes along, it pops up on my […]

DarkMaus – Soulsborne Indie RPG released

by SeanPWallaceon 30/01/2016
With the success and critical acclaim of From Software’s ‘Souls’ games, and Bloodborne, it is perhaps unsurprising that the challenging action RPG has spawned its own genre of sorts. From the somewhat good Lords of the Fallen to the forthcoming Salt and Sanctuary, a number of other developers have taken their love for the Soulsborne games […]

Eternal Step

by Daniel Delargyon 31/10/2015
So, when I first heard about this, it was pitched to me as “a rogue-like Dark Souls”. Well, they weren’t wrong.

Mr. Craiggy’s Top 5 Steam Halloween Sale Picks

by MrCraiggyon 30/10/2015
Happy Hallowsteam!! It’s that time of year again where Valve put a lot of horror games (and this year, a lot of non-horror games too) on sale over the course of the Halloween period. It also coincides with payday, which means I’m going to be on instant noodles for the entirety of November I think… […]

Extreme Exorcism: Or “How Craig Lost Even More Of His Social Life.”

by MrCraiggyon 22/09/2015
Hi everyone, Craig here. It’s been a very busy few weeks for me. I’ve been running around a field fighting orcs, I’ve been on jury duty fighting orcs and now I’ve been exploring a 2D haunted house fighting…..orcs? Well, ghosts of orcs, maybe. This is Extreme Exorcism, an Indie 2D platforming shooter from developer Golden […]

Destructive Creations Announce Hatred, but who is the Target?

by David Roseon 17/10/2014
Experienced Polish indie developer Destructive Creations announced today the reveal of their debut game Hatred, a brutal, uncompromising isometric shooter where the goal is to kill everyone, and “take no prisoners”. Powered as much by controversy as the fourth iteration of the Unreal Engine, and sporting a somewhat familiar logo style, Hatred has the player […]

Review: Iron Fisticle

by Sai Mealingon 23/09/2014
If Dark Souls and Streets of Rage somehow met, knocked digital boots and gave birth to a dark spawn then the result would be Iron Fisticle. It was these kind of thoughts that I couldn’t get out of my head as I played through the latest rogue-like offering from indie publishers Curve Studios. It’s a […]

The Swapper (PlayStation) Review

by Sai Mealingon 30/07/2014
In a time when virtually anybody with the right skills and enough perseverance can make a game, indie platformers aren’t exactly in short supply. Each month, it seems as though Steam, PSN and the iOS App Store are rife with a multitude of different takes on what is possibly gaming’s most iconic genre. Finding a […]
