Echo Generation – Review

Have you ever had a dream that starts off distant, yet familiar, and the longer you stay in the dream the more it unravels and the more twisted it becomes? Yeah, me neither. Well, maybe once or twice… this month. Anyway, the point I am trying to make is the

In Sound Mind – Review

The shoe that fits one person, pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases. A rather fitting quote by Carl Jung for my experience with “In Sound Mind” by developer We Make Stuff. I’m not usually an avid fan of the horror genre, however, the concept

Before jumping in and playing ‘TOME (Terrain of Magical Expertise)’ you first must go back into its history. When you think back ten years ago when ‘Newgrounds’ and many other types of content entertained us on YouTube and the internet; from content creators and individuals with web series and cartoons.

Clid The Snail – Review

I have always loved all things furry, creepy, and crawly. From looking for snails and millipedes under my nan’s flowerpots back in England to when my Mum made me throw out my elephant beetle shells collection because they stunk out my room; I’ve always been fascinated by creatures big and

The Big Con – Review

Those of us that experienced the 90’s, either as a kid or young adult, can sometimes aggressively cling to the past. Simultaneously agreeing it was terrible and the best time to be alive, backwards caps and scrunchies were unironically fashionable, and baggy ripped Jeans were a staple. Thanks to Mighty

Greak: Memories Of Azur – Review

One of the oldest sayings still about is “don’t judge a book by its cover,” and it has never been more prevalent than my experience with Greak: Memories of Azur.

Before the behemoth we’ve come to know and love as Grand Theft Auto V took over the gaming world with its arguably unmatchable open-world quality, it too had to start from humble beginnings: top-down view gameplay.

Seed Of Life – Review

One of the first action-adventure puzzle games I ever played was Tomb Raider, way back in the later days of Windows 95. I can’t really say that I was ever any good at it, but I stuck with it as best I could and eventually, got past the first area.
