Code: Realize Guardian
Code: Realize Guardian of Rebirth is an anime visual novel with a Steampunk aesthetic.

The Unholy Society review: The power of pop culture compels you

The Unholy Society looks nice but is mostly empty of any substance. Repetitive combat and pointless pop culture references dominate this very short game that ends just as things finally get interesting. You know preciously what The Unholy Society is from the second you launch it. The groovy tunes and...

The Longing review: 400 days of loneliness

The Longing review
The Longing is an experimental indie game that describes itself as "anti-action." Although it may be slow and a little depressing at times, it is ultimately a chill and rewarding experience. Time is a precious resource, but what would you do if you had too much of it? What would...

Conglomerate 451 review: Some pain and no gain

Conglomerate 451 review
Conglomerate 451 takes intriguing cyberpunk themes and mashes them together into a repetitive and unrewarding gameplay experience, reserved to the most hardcore of players. Conglomerate 451 takes the undeniably cool themes of Cyberpunk and combines them with dungeon crawling and turn-based style Might & Magic or The Bard's Tale series.

Kunai review: A ninja Metroidvania-lite

Even though it's a mostly unchallenging game, Kunai is fast, charming, and above all - fun. Breezing through this Metroidvania as a ninja tablet just works. According to Wikipedia, Kunai is a Japanese tool commonly associated with the ninja and mostly used to gouge holes in walls. According to developer...

The Blind Prophet review: Fighting demons and minigames

Despite a few minor flaws, The Blind Prophet is a solid adventure game with a dark story, classic point-and-click puzzles, and a beautiful hand-drawn art style. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, a year in development, and a few delays, The Blind Prophet - Blood of the Apostle is now available...

Effie review: Nostalgia spread a little too thin

effie
Inspired by multiple classic titles, Effie combines fun combat and platforming with an empty world to underwhelming results. I'm a massive fan of platformers and colorful action-adventure games. Being on the same playing field as indie gems like A Hat in Time and the wacky Lego games, Effie has its...

Lightmatter review: Shines bright, but still overshadowed

Lightmatter review
Lightmatter is a gratifying puzzle game with a simple premise. It plays, looks, and sounds fantastic, but could do with fewer Portal references and a more robust story. It's been 13 years since Portal came out and blew us all away with its mind-bending puzzles and insanely good writing. Ever...

Killer Chambers review: Oh Lord I died 273 times

Killer Chambers
Killer Chambers is an unforgiving action-platformer - a classic bullet-hell that will put your pattern-memorizing abilities and reaction time to the test. Jump over, duck under, and dodge deadly projectiles. But nevermind how good and how quick you are, your blood will still decorate the walls of the chamber.
