Hot Shot Burn – Early Access

Have you ever hosted a gaming party and thought “Gee, I realllly want a fast paced, arcade shooter where me and my friends can just simply just pick our characters and play?” It’s a very specific thought process but if you answered yes, then allow us to present to you

Whipseey And The Lost Atlas – Review

Blowfish studios, the independent, Australian video game publisher are back, not long either, after dropping a previous extremely fun title, ‘SubDivision Infinity DX’. I was given the pleasure of playing and reviewing that too which is available on their website, so I was definitely excited to get my hands on

Subdivision Infinity DX – Review

This little gem I’ve been toiling away with recently is from Sydney based Publisher, Blowfish Studios. When I was offered this to review, I was expecting an indie style game but what I got was a little under 2Gb of pure fun! Space! The final frontier… Or is it? I

The Forbidden Arts – Review

I live for indie developers and the unexpected jewels they produce at times. How can you not admire the ambitiousness of a little fish in a big fish’s pond? Stingbot Games out of California, inspired by retro classics have developed ‘The Forbidden Arts’, released in Early Access on Steam in

Heave Ho – Preview

It’s all in the name as “Heave Ho” is a fun couch co-op game for you and your friends to take a grasp at! Published by Digital Devolver and developed by Le Cartel Studios, Heave Ho is best experienced with friends on a Friday night to get the evening started

The Church In The Darkness – Review

The Church in the Darkness is set in the late 1970’s, with you taking on the role of Vic, an ex-law enforcement officer, whose nephew Alex has joined a religious cult run by Isaac and Rebecca Walker, leaders of ‘The Collective Justice Mission’. Labelled as radicals by the US government,

Damsel (Xbox One) – Review

Somewhat surprisingly, I’m actually starting to enjoy some of the more arcade style games we’ve been getting recently. It’s been a very nice change of pace and we can generally get a pretty good idea of the game in a relatively short period of time. Plus, when you live in

Pawarumi – Review

I’m not quite old enough for Space Invaders to be a game I grew up with, but I am old enough to remember seeing it in arcades as a stand-alone system, rather than those gaming tables you quite often see in a local pub. I do, however, remember playing some

Let’s Go Nuts – Review

Let’s Go Nuts by BeardedBrothers.Games is certainly a different game, you feel right at home yet also like you are staying at that creepy aunt’s house you’ve never met before. The platforming is so familiar, but the game mechanics are a fresh and unfamiliar take on this tried and true

Etherborn – Review

Well, here we are again! Back and ready to re-dive into the wonderfully creative and mind-bending game of Altered Matter’s Etherborn.  Previously, I wrote about the preview / demo version of this game, giving you a vast outline of what was currently available for this title, the wonders it holds

Damsel (PC) – Review

Damsel is a fast paced, action platformer brought to you by Screwtape Studios, with its non-stop thrills and stylish look, Damsel is a speed runners and action platform players’ dream. The story is set in a world where vampires and humans co-exist, but the story primarily revolves around the main

The Padre – Review

I have never really played any TellTale style games. I think I gave one a shot, but I didn’t enjoy it, so much so, that I don’t even recall the name of it. To me they always felt slow and one directional. I know this isn’t always the case, but

Sea of Solitude – Review

Overwhelming sadness, guilt, grief and loneliness. The times we do experience these feelings, it does indeed feel as if you are drowning in an endless expanse of water. Games that highlight mental health may seem like the ‘in’ craze at the moment, but whose to say this is a bad

Devolver Bootleg – Review

It’s such a thrill to see major companies create a game, seemingly “taking the mickey”or make fun of themselves in a good way. Ubisoft did it with their game Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, Rare did it with their raunchy adult take on a lovable creature Conkers Bad Fur Day

Layers Of Fear 2 – Review

Layers of Fear 2 is a psychological horror video game developed and published by Bloober Team who are the minds behind the first Layers of Fear and Observer. I love anything to do with horror, especially gaming! Outlast 1 & 2, Friday the 13th, I even played Slenderman when it

Gato Roboto – Review

Ever wondered what would happen if you replaced ‘Samus’ from the ‘Metroid’ series with a cat? And say this cat had access to an impressive arsenal of giant robotic mech suits and weaponry, whilst roaming an isolate space planet? Sounds insane, yet awesome, right?! Well, Devolver Digital, the studio that

Heaven’s Vault – Review

A well-traveled looking woman stands in front of a mountain. The dusty plains whip sand around, blinding her vision. Still, she continues forward with her robotic sidekick following eagerly behind. After a brief climb, she exclaims: “We’ve made it”. The camera pans out to reveal a hut and a path

And say this cat had access to an impressive arsenal of giant robotic mech suits and weaponary, whilst roaming an isolate space planet? Sounds insane, yet awesome, right?!

Guard Duty – Review

After my last review on the newly released indie game ‘Katana ZERO’, I mentioned how much I enjoy indie games that have a lot of passion and excitement behind them. How you can tell the team behind the upcoming creation is full to the brim of nervous, yet excited, energy

Sigma Theory: Global Cold War – Review

War games are a dime a dozen these days. With the likes of Call of Duty and Battlefield spinning out a sequel or a spinoff almost yearly, it can sometimes leave the category feeling a bit overdone and stale. Thankfully, the creative minds of Goblinz Studio & Mi-Clos Studio have

Katana ZERO – Review

Arguably one of the most addictive indie action games I’ve ever played. EVER! It brings me such excitement to present to you the newly released indie game ‘Katana ZERO’ Akiisoft have absolutely captured the hack-n-slash, side scrolling, action platformer aspect to a T. Katana Zero is addictive, it’s colourful and it creates its own twist on the genre that gives it its own personality.

Grimshade – Review

It’s a win-some, lose-some chance with fund raising websites. Sometimes, the money doesn’t reach the required amount and a proposed product dwindles in the wind, swirling in hopes of being grounded and restarted. Other times, it pays off immensely, going way beyond what was required and smashing all required pledge

Skorecery – Review

Skorecery is not a game where you can spend endless hours getting engrossed into an awesome story line with great cinematic enjoyment. Instead, this game has you duelling it out with your friends to see who is the greatest of all with this fast-paced game.

Etherborn – Preview

It really brings me such joy to see, play and review (or in this case preview) indie games that have such heart and soul in their development. You can really feel that each moment and movement has been undertaken with deep creative love and passion, making the experience just that

Beat Cop – Review

If there wasn’t a police force the world would be quite hectic, most of us will never become a cop, but thanks to video games we sometimes can at least pretend to be one in the virtual world. Beat Cop is essentially a police simulator game, and a cool one

Battlloon – Review

Battlloon is one of the many, many indie games that have made their way on to the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo switch, while still only getting stronger and seemingly holding its own in the console world, has become one of the platforms of choice for independent developers. attlloon is very
