Five for Five – Hevn

Five for Five – Hevn

There’s occasionally a moment when you play a preview build of a game where the demo ends, and you’re just left standing there thinking “But I wanted to carry on playing for the rest of the day!”. That’s exactly how I felt after playing the preview build for Hevn, an immersive, story-driven sci-fi adventure from developers MIGA.

Impressions – Supreme League of Patriots

Impressions – Supreme League of Patriots

Creating satire always involves walking the fine line between being funny and just being annoying, whilst not being pointlessly offensive. Supreme League of Patriots, an upcoming episodic point and click adventure from indie studio No Bull Intentions, might be able to manage that responsibility and walk the line. Might.

The Indie Gaming Roundup – Death in Cadlewood, Warside and Divinity: Original Sin

The Indie Gaming Roundup – Death in Cadlewood, Warside and Divinity: Original Sin

I don’t know where the time has got to this week, it is already Friday and I realise that I’ve entirely neglected to write about some fairly cool indie game news that has appeared in the past few days. This isn’t quite a Crowdfunding Weekly, even though one game has just landed itself on Kickstarter, rather a just a quick rundown on a handful of indie games of all flavours. Hit the break for word on Death in Candlewood, Warside and Divinity: Original Sin.

(Not Quite) Gaming Crowdfunding Weekly – Cloud Chamber, Men of War and Concursion

(Not Quite) Gaming Crowdfunding Weekly – Cloud Chamber, Men of War and Concursion

Steph is a bit busy this week, so I have bravely stepped into her shoes to bring you this weeks edition of Gaming Crowdfunding Weekly. I might not actually be stepping in Steph’s shoes if I am honest, this week I’m going to highlight a few games which aren’t actually coming through the Crowdfunding channels. I bet Steph won’t be best pleased when she sees what I’ve done with her column! Hit the break to see some media and hastily written words about Cloud Chamber, Men of War and Concursion.

Trouble Arises With Steam Greenlight

Trouble Arises With Steam Greenlight

For anyone out there who thinks Valve are the almighty untouchable company thanks to their efforts with Steam, I urge you to take a step back and think things over for a minute. I for one would be thinking about Greenlight, Develop recently reported on a meeting between Greenlight developers and Valve where the lack of visibility of the service was brought up. That isn’t the only trouble though as today some more unsavoury news came to light.

Update Valve’s Doug Lombardi has responded, read after the break.

Eador: Master’s of the Broken World – Early Impressions

Eador: Master’s of the Broken World – Early Impressions

I’ve been squeezing in some time for a grand looking turn-based with RPG-features strategy game. Not a Heroes of Might and Magic game, but Eador: Master’s of the Broken World. I’ll simply refer to it as Eador from now on while I talk about some of my early impressions of this title which came from Steam Greenlight.

Steam Greenlight Spotlight – Rush Bros

Steam Greenlight Spotlight – Rush Bros

There are many games on Steam Greenlight that I really should be playing, more than I have time for, but earlier today I took the time to have a quick blast with a fast-paced platformer which uses the beats of your own music to alter levels as you play. The name of the game?

Rush Bros.

Euro Truck Sim 2 Gets UK Retail Release Date

Euro Truck Sim 2 Gets UK Retail Release Date



Euro Truck Simulator 2 is very nearly here with UK publisher Excalibur revealing today on Facebook that they will be releasing the game on October 26th for UK retail. However, if you are very keen, developers SCS Software have confirmed that they will be in a position to release the game digitally on the 19th of October. I for one and getting pretty excited for this, it isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, but this series has slowly created a little place of its own in my heart.

Greenlight Watch list – Help Get ‘Black Mesa’ Onto Steam

Greenlight Watch list – Help Get ‘Black Mesa’ Onto Steam

Black Mesa, for those who are unaware, is a fan made third party mod that aims to overhaul Valve’s original Half Life game. The 40 man development team say they wish to “create a more engrossing in-game world with more varied, complex environments and more challenging, realistic gameplay”. But Black Mesa is not just a mod for Half Life it’s a total recreation of the game using Valve’s very own Source engine, which makes it even more of an accomplishment…

Major Changes to Steam’s Greenlight Service

Major Changes to Steam’s Greenlight Service

Since its release last Thursday, Steam’s Greenlight service has seen over 700 submissions to its database of potential Steam games. Whilst many indie developers have been quick to praise Valve’s new user-driven service, there have been some concerns over quality control. For every potentially interesting indie game there were dozens of crudely made, unfinished projects, joke entries and requests for AAA games unlikely to ever be added to Steam’s catalogue. Last night, Valve rolled out an update to the service, making…
