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...

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...

Between the Stars is an action-packed space epic looking for funds on Kickstarter

Between the Stars space station
I've always dreamed about being the captain of a spaceship. The Mass Effect trilogy did well in making that dream a reality, but I have always felt it was missing genuinely epic space battles. Fortunately, Between the Stars, a new space epic by indie studio Isolated Games is offering just that. The game is now on Kickstarter along with a fully...

A giant skeleton and a little girl work together in Carly and the Reaperman

Carly and the Reaperman
Carly and the Reaperman aspires to be more than your average VR game. It is a two-player game in which one player uses a standard controller to play as Carly, an innocent little girl stuck in the underworld, while the other player wears a VR headset to take the rule of the Reaperman - death itself. To beat the game,...

Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones is a horror RPG that fully commits to the works of Lovecraft

Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones monsters
One of the best things about gaming conventions is the games you discover there. You wander around the halls and booths and stumble upon hidden gems and exciting titles. One of the exciting games I discovered during Gamescom 2018 was Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones. It's a Lovecraftian RPG with tactical combat and oddly evocative illustrative visuals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHA9syy34Oc Stygian: Reign of the...
