By Kels, 12 March 2018 at 10:13 am UTC (2 Comments)
All Our Asias is the most recent offering from Sean Han Tani, the developer of Anodyne. The game is a mix of narrative exploration (so-called “walking simulators”) and visual novel styles, although it does not offer branching paths or multiple endings.

By BTRE, 8 March 2018 at 2:06 pm UTC (2 Comments)
The latest DLC for Paradox Development Studios’ WW2 grand strategy title is very ambitious. The accompanying patch, available to all, shakes things up quite a bit and I’ve had a chance to play around with it all before launch.

Some thoughts on Man O' War: Corsair, rough sailing and very little fun

By BTRE, 4 March 2018 at 10:20 pm UTC (11 Comments)
Man O’ War: Corsair – Warhammer Naval Battles is, as you might guess, a game about living the life of a privateer in the Warhammer fantasy world. It has all the fixings you might expect as well: you can raid, board vessels, buy and sell goods in ports and manage a crew and ship. On paper, it’s the sort of game I’d go wild over. The reality is altogether different.

By liamdawe, 25 February 2018 at 10:28 pm UTC (1 Comments)
Last month, ERSATZ, the speed focused hardcore action-platformer with a musical twist added Linux support and since I love a good beat I gave it a go. Here's some thoughts.

Madcap Castle is a retro-inspired puzzle platformer that’s not for everyone

By BTRE, 23 February 2018 at 11:44 am UTC (2 Comments)
Proudly showing off its Game Boy aesthetics and high level of difficulty, Madcap Castle seeks to fill its own niche. I gave the game a whirl and have a few thoughts to share.

By liamdawe, 20 February 2018 at 12:42 pm UTC (16 Comments)
