Miitopia – Review

Since the release of the Nintendo Switch, the Nintendo 3DS has gradually faded in both popularity and relevance. Not to say that the 3DS didn’t have a good run, it was actually one of the most successful consoles of all time. For the most part, when people think back to

Operation: Tango – Review

I was fortunate to play the BETA for Operation Tango and enjoyed just a tease of what the game has to offer. Now with the full release on its way, I dove back into what the developers at Clever Plays have to offer. The Developers at Clever Plays certainly have

Alan Sharp: Chapter 0: Prologue – Review

Finally, a detective-based, puzzle-solving mystery game that has a unique feel, interesting storyline, and puzzles that leave you guessing but don’t make you switch the game off in frustration. Enter Alan Sharp! Created by Mystive Studios, Alan Sharp was a project of love that started back in 2016 by Boban

Subnautica: Below Zero – Review

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Not today, folks. Today it’s me ridin’ a god damn meteor into a planet so a corrupt ass mega-corporation can’t track me! Yee-haw! Grab your wetsuits and follow me, ’cause we are about to ride this meteor straight into

BIOMUTANT – Review

Since Covid hit, we, the gamers, have been quietly waiting for a solid RPG to come and eat all our time up. Games have been quite scarce with deadlines being pushed back, production slowing down, and projects just being canned altogether. Hype is at fever pitch at the moment for

DEATHLOOP (Hands-Off) – Preview

Recently, the lovely folks over at Bethesda invited MKAU to their hands-off digital event for DEATHLOOP, an exclusive title promised back at E3 in 2019. Presented by Arkane Lyon’s very own Dinga Bakaba (Game Director) and Sébastien Mitton (Art Director), we were treated to some very impressive in-game footage and

This cute-looking collection of 8 bit-style games from the team at Deconstructeam lets you explore ten different mini-games; each one giving you a vastly different experience. Whether you’re after some brain-teasing, city-saving, decision making, some not-so-relaxing floristry, or some life-altering, sacrificial magic, ‘Essays on Empathy’ has hours of interesting storytelling

Siege Survival: Gloria Victis – Review

As a game focused wholly on its story, Siege Survival: Gloria Victis is very invested in its character development and accuracy in its time and theme. Blackeye Games and FishTankStudio have successfully ventured out and created a game that is very entertaining with its strategical and over-thinking genre allowing you

GTFO – Review

The definition of GTFO perfectly sums up the atmosphere, intensity, and general gameplay that is the GTFO the game. There is even an encouraging little disclaimer on the Steam page that states “Very Challenging experience, probably too hard for most players”. GTFO is not for the faint-hearted, but for fans

Operation: Tango – Preview

When it comes to the game Operation Tango, the saying “It takes two to tango” is the best way to describe the game’s entire concept. Developed and Published by Clever Plays, this clever cooperative spy adventure, with its colourful game pallet, brings co-op to a whole new level. When communication

Boomerang X – Preview

Developed by Dang! And published by Devolver Digital, ‘Boomerang X’ has no planned release date on Steam, which breaks my heart because I couldn’t recommend this game enough. Boomerang X is all about small/medium/big arena fights with a boomerang that you get to toss and teleport while using a couple

Size Matters – Review

This is it, my friends. Definitive proof that, despite what many of my partners have tried to reassure me, size really does matter. At least it certainly does when you’re a rapidly shrinking scientist doing your best to concoct a cure! Brought to us by the developers at Mazen Games,

Space Otter Charlie – Review

In a world of modern-day shooters, smash and grab PVP, and intense story-driven action-adventure games, the classic puzzle platformers tend to take a backseat, but rummage around behind the seats and you’ll often find some long, lost gems hidden away. Such is the game of Space Otter Charlie; a blink-and-you’ll-regret-you-missed-it

Oddworld: Soulstorm – Review

Oddworld: Soulstorm, developed by Oddworld Inhabitants is the newest installment of the Oddworld series and a re-imagining of Abe’s Exoddus. Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee was I believe the very first PlayStation game I ever owned when I got a PS1 for my birthday in 1997. As mentioned earlier this is the

What Comes After – Review

“What Comes After” by Rolling Glory Jam and Fahmitsu, isn’t an incredibly long game but it is a game that will make you look at the world for the better, something we all definitely need in this trying time. What Comes After opens up the heart and the mind; a

3 Out of 10: Season 2 – Review

The absurd humour of ‘3 out of 10’ is back again for a second season. From Developer and publisher Terrible Posture Games, the second season brings back the hilarious and unconventional group of video game developers at Shovelworks Studios. This interactive comedy sitcom, with its five highly entertaining episodes, brings

DOOM 3: VR Edition – Review

Bethesda’s DOOM franchise has been around for a while now, from its humble beginnings in basic 3D corridors with .gif enemies, to its most recent edition with ray tracing and high-poly enemies and environments. It is certainly one of Bethesda’s best-known titles, and for good reason; it is incredible. DOOM

Trader Life Simulator – Review

Designed and published by Mohammed Qasrawi, and released on the 22nd February 2021 there is a lot this game needs to work on in terms of a proper tutorial, and almost nothing to guide you in this “ascend-to-the-top-like” trading game. However, let’s get into the finer details. You wake up,
