Uurnog – Birds, Bombs, and Blocks

Nifflas is an OG indie game designer. Indie games really began to take off in the early to mid 2000s as development tools became easier to access and a generation raised on the 8 & 16 styles of the 80s and 90s emerged both as creators and consumers. Some of the games I remember fondly […]

Abzû – There Be Whales Here

Abzû is a game where you swim in the ocean. You look at fish and explore sea caves. You can ride on big fish. Sometimes you can ride on squids. Graphics: Let’s get the important thing out of the way: this is one of the best looking games I’ve ever played. The artwork is the selling […]

Oh, Deer! – Don’t Fear the Deer

Over the deer and through the deer to grandmother’s house we go. That’s how I remember the old song and Necrosoft Games have brought that song to life in Oh, Deer!*. I grew up in the American Midwest so I can attest to the accuracy of this game. Once you left the safety of the […]

Spacewar! and Space Invaders being two of the earliest video games of note. All you really need are some cool graphics and some nice sound effects […]

COPOKA – MAGPIES LIKE THEIR BLING

Note: I received this as part of a Humble Monthly Bundle. In recent months they’ve added “Humble Original” games to the bundle. Which are games that are games that haven’t been released yet, and are often borderline experimental. This is one of those. I’m not sure you could actually buy it if you wanted. Visit […]

AVALANCHE 2: SUPER AVALANCHE – JUMPIN’ UP

There is a story to ‘Avalanche 2: SUPER Avalanche,’ and I assure you that it’s a super important story. It is a story about a wizard. And all stories about wizards are important. Why anyone would read a story or play a game or listen to some music that wasn’t about wizards, by wizards, and […]
