Review: Inside

Inside is a 2.5D side-scrolling, puzzle-solving, platforming game where you take on the role of a nameless (and faceless) young boy being hunted down for unknown reasons. If you’ve played Playdead’s previous title, Limbo, then you’ll know what to expect in terms of gameplay from Inside, and though in no way a sequel to Limbo…

Leaked RE7 footage something quite interesting about herbs

And I apologise for the super click-baity title there, but I didn’t want to reveal anything before hitting the Spoiler Zone because this seems super massive. So… *SPOILERS FOR GAMEPLAY MECHANICS* Oh, and it’s in German: I’m honestly a little shocked, but intrigued as well. It does seem a bit absurd that he can lose…

Review: Butcher

So I think I feel safe to say that as a gamer I’m not one with any particular passion for twitch shooters, or bullet hell games, or really anything of that ilk. I like a degree of challenge in my games – for example, I love it in horror games where you die easily if…

Review: Shu

So on Console and on Steam the platformer genre has become somewhat of a crowded field, with pretty much every Tom, Dick and Harry indie studio looking to leave it’s mark on the genre, somehow, with their own unique offering. Sometimes they manage it, sometimes they don’t. Shu is another such attempt, and though I…

Resident Evil 7: The Return of the Herbs

So it’s confirmed now, (properly.) The herbs will be returning… It also looks as though the rumours about your wrist watch indicating your health level (ala old-school Resident Evil’s EKG indicator) is also a thing.

Review: War for the Overworld

War for the Overworld is yet another kickstarter-funded spiritual successor to a classic but largely long-dead franchise, in it’s case the Dungeon Keeper series. In it you take on the role of an ‘underlord’, a malevolent god-like entity who runs a dungeon of creatures of varying types and sizes, and has to manage their wellbeing…

Slight Update on Routine

So Routine is something I’ve had my eye on for quite awhile, Glowbear and I actually discussed it on the podcast many, many moons ago as something that looked really nice in the early video that was shown of the game. It’s not a huge update from Lunar Software, but all the same it’s nice…

Review: Satellite Reign

I’ll start this review by saying I’m a huge fan of the original Syndicate and Syndicate Wars, games that Satellite Reign is intended to be a spiritual successor to, so much so that I did actually contribute to the Kickstarter for the game and my copy of it came as a reward for that contribution….

Resident Evil in Unity…?

Colour me intrigued. It’s just a test from the looks of it so obviously don’t go expecting a full remake of any of the games in unity anytime soon but it’s nice to think it’s a possibility. The creator also has a few more videos of rudimentary gameplay on his YouTube page if this catches…

Review: Missing – An Interactive Thriller Episode 1

The first episode of Missing: An Interactive Thriller really took me by surprise, the game is in many respects a throwback to the earlier days of PC and console gaming, before the rise of the polygon, when FMV was still the best way to convey a story in a ‘realistic’ way. It feels almost like…
