Review: Alwa’s Awakening

Alwa’s Awakening is produced by Elden Pixels who are based on Goteborg, Sweden. The game has you assume the role of Zoe, a likeable girl who has been ripped from her home and hurled into Alwa, a lavish, very much alive land, divided into various sections. There isn’t too much to delve into when it comes to the…

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…

Venture into Destiny – Part 4: A Plague on your Houses

If you’re positively bewildered by what madness you’re spotting here, links to the prior parts can be found at the bottom. Forgive me dear audience, but I was lead by temptation. I knew what I did was wrong, no one would disagree with that assessment, but I did it anyway. I relapsed. The hardest addiction…

Gaming Hangout Review: Respawn Bar, Austria

When in Vienna and needing a strudel and a drink and maybe to play some games with a local crowd, one finds oneself sliding like a smooth cucumber into Barcraft. But while Barcraft is a well known event organised community focused crowd, in terms of a fixed venue, Vienna offers us mainly and currently, only…

Venture into Destiny – Part 3: An Inspiration for Regicide

If you’re positively bewildered by what madness you’re spotting here, links to the prior parts can be found at the bottom. For you, hopefully, it has only been a week. However, time is a strange force when you’re able to make things and then not release them. Since my last dabble in Destiny, a month…

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…

Scary presence: Paris Games Week

Scary Granules loves any excuse to visit a lovely country and even better if it involves video games and guilt inducing patisseries. So here we are at Paris Games Week and on the final day, the conclusion is that the event was great fun and we met a lot of great people. The weather was…

Through the Woods Review

After an initial introduction the character of the mother begins a narration, which immediately shows that this isn’t just a random lost and found horror, it’s one that has deep meaningful and quite sad elements. A mother looking after her son alone, who initially didn’t have that automatic bond and now that she has, the…
