For The King – The Verdict

For The King – The Verdict

Trouble has struck the lands of Farhul, the King has been slain and the minions of Chaos are roaming the lands, spreading their evil across what was once a friendly, happy land. This is For the King where your trio of characters aren’t adventuring and questing for fame or fortune, but to avenge their King! Well, that is the case if you are playing the vanilla For the King experience. I’m playing the recent Switch release which includes all the…

SteamWorld Quest – The Verdict

SteamWorld Quest – The Verdict

Image & Form Games have done great things with their SteamWorld games, with the two main Dig games being wonderful adventures, especially Dig 2 which I took a look at last year. So, when I saw their new release was going to a card based RPG, I was quietly confident that it would be another hit, even with my so-so history with card games. SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech, to give it its full title, takes place in a time…

Train Valley 2 – The Verdict

Train Valley 2 – The Verdict

Choo-choo! I’ve bee down the rabbit hole of Train Valley 2 recently, a cute puzzler with a dash of tycoon thrown in for good measure. And yes, it’s something I’d heartily recommend you check out. It’s a simple game at heart. A city requires some resources, and you have to deliver said resource to the city. Easy! Just build some train tracks, and link together the production locations to the city, right? Not so fast, this is a puzzle game…

Train Valley 2 Comes Tomorrow

Train Valley 2 Comes Tomorrow

There’s a bunch of games due to leave Early Access in the coming weeks, some that I have long had an eye on (Rise of Industry, I’m looking at you) while others like Train Valley 2 have snuck up on me out of nowhere! That’s clearly a failing of my journalistic abilities, but it doesn’t mean that it isn’t a game worthy of attention. The original got positive reviews, even if we only talked about the upcoming release of that!…

The EGX 2018 Report – Vanguard: Fight for Rudiarius

The EGX 2018 Report – Vanguard: Fight for Rudiarius

Here we are, a couple of weeks after EGX 2018 came to a close, and I finally have a chance to write about Vanguard: Fight for Rudiarius. The wait is not a knock on Vanguard, more a nature of my busy Autumn filled with wrestling, rallying and running a half-freaking-marathon. But here we are to talk about Vanguard. Let’s crack on.

The EGX 2018 Report – Disco Elysium

The EGX 2018 Report – Disco Elysium

One of the most intriguing games I saw at EGX last week was Disco Elysium: A Detective RPG from ZA/UM. The demo opened with one of the most surreal introductions to a game I’ve experienced. Your character, a disgraced detective from Revachol West is having a conversation with his inner-self while you try to figure out whether you are dead, or just suffering a severe case of memory loss. 

The EGX 2018 Report – Indie Roundup

The EGX 2018 Report – Indie Roundup

There was so much going on at EGX this year, whether I saw more games than previous years or not, I’m none too sure. What I do know is that I saw truckloads of great indies! I’ve already talked about a bunch of games as part of my EGX 2018 Report, and while this is a roundup, there will still be more in-depth pieces to come! I didn’t want to let some of the cracking titles I saw not get…

The EGX 2018 Report – Curve Digital Get Carried Away, For The King

The EGX 2018 Report – Curve Digital Get Carried Away, For The King

Every year at EGX, I am always so pleased to see so many indies showing off their wares in the Rezzed section, it’s great to see. As a regular attendee of EGX, if not the Rezzed show itself, I’ve noticed some trends. One big one is that Curve Digital are carving out a nice space in the market and are doing great things for the indie scene. They had numerous title on show this year at EGX, but a couple…

The Colonists – Alpha, First Impressions

The Colonists – Alpha, First Impressions

Codebyfire the developers behind Settlers inspired game The Colonists had been quiet for quite some time. Then out of nowhere came a trailer, a ray of hope for those who had been keeping tabs on the game since it was first announced over a year ago. It seemed that somewhere deep inside the matrix of game development, cogs were beginning to turn and foundations were being laid. I had to find out more about this mysterious game.

Megaquarium Filters Onto Steam This September

Megaquarium Filters Onto Steam This September

I will forever be disappointed that despite getting some hands-on time with Megaquarium at EGX last year, I didn’t write about it at any length. It looked, and played, as a wonderful tycoon game putting you in charge of running your very own aquarium. Now, it has been confirmed for release this September, and there’s a new trailer to go with the release date confirmation.
