The Walking Dead has blown up in the past few years. From being a humble comic series about the apocalyptic adventures of Rick Grimes, the title has become a full blown franchise with two TV series and a bunch of games to boot. Perhaps one of the strangest tie-ins to the show is The Escapists: The Walking Dead. Apart from having too many uses of “the” in the name, the game is a mix of ...[Read More]

Blood Bowl is what you get when you mix American Football, a fantasy setting and over the top violence. The latest entry to the franchise video game is Blood Bowl 2, which is available now on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. A sequel to the 2009 Blood Bowl this follow up feels much the same, but is more user friendly and looks nicer. The game consists of eight races that will be familiar to fantasy...[Read More]

-Karly Taylor I’m not a huge Minecraft fan. I’ll be the first person to admit it, in fact. From the time of its initial alpha release in 2009, I couldn’t understand the fascination. Friends I went to high school with who happened to be gamers were obsessed with it, having regular LAN party sessions with it. It was all anybody could talk about for a while, and it drove me crazy. I...[Read More]

– Stefan Bradley Splatoon has been out for months now, but Nintendo’s online multiplayer shooter has become a service rather than a simple standalone release, with regular free updates since the game’s launch in May, so yes, I am relevant. Thanks. It’s still amazing to me and others that Nintendo not only released an online multiplayer focused title, but a shooter of all things. Also it’s a ...[Read More]

– Nick Palmisano We’ve probably all had pets that died. Dogs, goldfish, hamsters, whatever your fluffy poison, at some point life catches up and we lose our companion. These times are hard, and painful. You think to yourself, “no way am I getting another pet, I just can’t deal with the heartbreak.” So what do you do? You branch out, become a little more creative; all of a sudden you’re diggi...[Read More]

– Karly Taylor And we’re back with a semi-new instalment in the gaming genre that everybody loves – the walking simulator! Dream is an engaging, thoughtful indie game by newcomer HyperSloth that focuses entirely on exploration inside the mind of a young man, providing a twisted journey through the subconscious. Howard Phillips, the man whose mind we invade, has an incredibly tedious wa...[Read More]

– Charlie Braithwaite Have you ever wanted to feel like Jackson Pollock and Moby mixed into one? Well now you can! PANORAMICAL is an indie game where you control visual and audio cues to create serene melodies and colour patterns that take the form of magical landscapes, or you can totally spaz out and make the worst acid trip imaginable. With PANORAMICAL we’re almost treading into a g...[Read More]

-Tom Heath Indie games have been delving into entertainingly portraying dark topics for years now. Hotline Miami, and its sequel, portrayed PTSD induced psychosis, and The Stanley Parable looked at the futility of our perceived free-will; just to name a few. Well, now March of Industry wants to know how efficient and organised you can be at producing weapons of mass destruction to then sell on to ...[Read More]

-Nick Palmisano I feel like I am building a reputation as the game writer who writes about quirky and or horrifying Indie games. Well good news friends, I am here to tell you, the trend continues! I am not a party person. As the old saying goes, I’ve ‘been there, and done that’. I like to spend my time on more productive endeavours, like, you know, stabbing a mindless horde of pixelated meat bags ...[Read More]

– Charlie Braithwaite Sometimes it’s the games that you least expect to enjoy that surprise you. This certainly was the case with Super Mutant Alien Assault, the name didn’t conjure up images of a great indie title, except that it is just that, an amazingly simple yet brutal platform shooter that gets the blood pumping. It’s one of those game that is easy to pick up but har...[Read More]

-Tom Heath Remastered games have been a huge point of contention in the current generation of consoles. On the one hand, many would rather developers and publishers focus on creating new titles for the newer systems rather than giving old games a facelift. But on the other hand, remasters can be great for anyone who has swapped console brands this generation, or hasn’t owned a gaming system ...[Read More]

-Karly Taylor This game. This fucking game. I should have known, from the moment I found out SOMA was developed by Frictional Games, playing this was going to be a rigorous trial for my nerves. Seriously, I partially blame you, Penumbra (Frictional’s début series), for me being so skittish in real life. I don’t like jump scares. In fact, I hate them with a passion that is almost holy i...[Read More]
