Cheap Golf Early Access preview: Come for the golf, stay because SUSAN made you

Cheap Golf preview
Cheap Golf is both tedious and intriguing at the same time. It's tedious because all you do is fling a square golf ball (or a "boop" as the game calls it) over and over again through increasingly tricky and/or trippy levels. The intriguing part is everything that happens between these levels. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_rGtbXwCWI For me, actually going through each level was only worth it for...

Rimworld review: Build, fight and replace limbs to survive

Rimworld review
Despite a steep learning curve and a sometimes difficult to grasp user interface, Rimworld's interesting scenarios and stories make it more than worth the effort. Rimworld is a strategy and base-management indie title developed by Ludeon Studios. The game has been in Steam Early Access for nearly five years now, but as of October 17, it finally earned the status of...

The Waylanders Kickstarter campaign showcases time travel and Celtic mythology

The Waylanders
The Waylanders is an upcoming tactical RPG that sends you traveling through time between the Celtic and Medieval periods. The game takes inspiration from classic RPGs like Dragon Age: Origins, Neverwinter Nights 2, and Baldur's Gate. As a huge fan of those games and others like them (Knights of the Old Republic 2 is my favorite game of all time), I became utterly...

Dark Devotion is 2D Souls-like devoted to being as dark as possible

Dark Devotion
Dark Devotion by the indie studio Hibernian Workshop is a 2D action RPG game, successfully funded on Kickstarter one year ago. The game will be published by The Arcade Crew, a new branch of French publisher DotEmu that focus mainly on assisting retro indie developers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLhPWhNPEPA You might have wondered why choose a name like "Dark Devotion"? Does this game have any connection...

My Memory of Us review: A story you won’t forget

My Memory of Us
My Memory of Us tells a compelling story with endearing visuals that make up for its dull, forgettable gameplay. As a Jewish person of Polish descent, I grew up listening to stories about the Holocaust from my late Grandfather. He was in his early teens when Germany invaded Poland in 1939. Miraculously, he survived the war and even took part...

Pikuniku is pure cartoon weirdness, and we love it

Pikuniku
Pikuniku is a pretty weird puzzle game developed by indie studio Sectordub and published by Devolver. One glance at the game and you'll immediately see the similarities to other crazy games like LocoRoco, Katamari Damacy, and the new Donut County. Pikuniku is trying to out-crazy them all with environments, characters, and visuals that can only be described as "pure nonsense." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjEC6_VEEs4 You play as...

The Gardens Between review: Friends till the end

The Gardens Between review
A touching story, fun but unchallenging puzzles and charming graphics make The Gardens Between a perfect game “for the whole family.” The Gardens Between is a game about friendship in its purest, most innocent form. It’s a journey through the memories of two childhood friends, turning even the smallest of moments into a beautiful puzzle for you to solve and experience....

Re-Legion seeks to convert you back to strategy games

Re-Legion is a tactical strategy game set in a cyberpunk future. We recently played a demo of the game together with developer Ice Code Games' CTO Mateusz Pilski and discovered that there's still room to innovate when it comes to RTS games. In Re-Legion, you play as Elion, a prophet that hopes to convert every single citizen in the city to his...

Megaquarium review: Plunge into aquarium management

Megaquarium
Megaquarium is a deep and challenging simulator where you design aquariums without much concern to what goes on on the other side of the glass. Megaquarium is a management strategy game by Twice Circled, an indie studio that already brought us similar games like Big Pharma. At first glance, the game seems like a stripped-down mobile title, with its simple graphics and...

Daemonical Early Access preview: Too dark and empty, but there’s something there

Daemonical
Daemonical is an asymmetric multiplayer horror game that's similar to titles like Friday The 13th: The Game and Dead by Daylight. The premise is simple: four human players run around the map and collect various body parts to try and complete a satanic ritual, while a fifth player attempts to hunt them down as a demon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLi2VIoHYqg Trust No One One small twist Daemonical...
