mutazione
Developers Die Gute Fabrik describe their upcoming title Mutazione as a "Mutant soap opera." Think less cheesy, and more packed with personal drama, unforgettable characters, and a lot of emotions. Mutazione is about trauma and its long-term effects on a small community. It is melancholic, beautiful and often weird, as you can tell from...

Creature in the Well review: Hits a few bumpers

Creature in the Well review
Creature in the Well can be a beautiful and intense bullet hell if you can make it past the repetitive first half. I was very excited about Creature in the Well when it was first announced on Nintendo Direct. A dungeon crawler with pinball-based combat and puzzle-solving is an intriguing concept. Besides, I always...

But after playing it at Gamescom 2019, I can tell you there are many more reasons to be excited about this roguelite RPG. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Fe0gqTU3Bg Star Renegades plays like a classic JRPG - you meet characters throughout a...

Mosaic can be depressing, but it doesn’t have to be

Mosaic
Mosaic is a game about the grinding, joyless routine of all work and no play. It is about isolation in a society that’s more comfortable staring at a screen than acknowledging the existence of another person. But it’s also a game about finding beauty in everyday moments, in music and the world around you....

Röki is a beautiful little tale inspired by Scandinavian folklore

Roki Gamescom 2019

From the very first seconds into its demo, it was already clear to me this game has something special, whether it's the art style, animations, or narrative design. https://youtu.be/WdvRkQtW03g Since I was chatting with the developers...

Sow by day and fight by night in nuclear farming game Atomicrops

Atomicrops
Atomicrops is probably one of the craziest, funniest games I got to play at Gamescom 2019. This game puts you in the role of a farmer searching for weird new seeds to sow on his farm and fighting hordes of monsters. While the demo I got to play at Gamescom was far from finished,...

decay of logos vista
Decay of Logos is vast, optimized, and offers tight combat and fun exploration. While it's inspired by legends, the game still manages to carve its own identity. I've waited a long while to play the final version of Decay of Logos. It caught my eye as a hybrid between Dark Souls and The Legend...
