unWorded – Pictures from Letters

When you think of France*, you think of ennui, of world weariness, of mimes, of overly verbose stories that still leave you staring at the remnants of raw extruded humanity (some of it yours) on the floor as you wonder if you’ve wasted your entire life on flights of triviality.     It’s true. You’ve […]

Hyperun – Faster, It’s Alright

The thing about LEFT! the thing RIGHT! about Hyperun RIGHT! LEFT! is that it’s extremely hard to RIGHT! OH GOD! RIGHT! to keep a train of LEFT! of thought while focusing RIGHT! LEFT! RIGHT! on the track. BOOOOM! Aw, dang it… Let’s try again… Hyperun in an infinite racer from the good folks at Concrete […]

Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight

Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight is the fourth in a series of Metroidvania games by Bombservice. I haven’t played the first three, but I don’t think it’s necessary to do so in order to understand this one. Maybe playing the earlier ones would explain some of the story holes. Like, why are witches so giant? […]

The Royal Cosmonautical Society

Full Disclosure: I paid for this game like a pleb. You take two months off and the world forgets you even existed. I mean. Because it knew I existed before. Honest.   The ground shook with trepidation as the acrid stench of death and decay creeped closer and closer. No animals remained, they escaped long […]

Bokida – Heartfelt CPU Meltdown

Full Disclosure: Monseigneur Extrodinaire Dev A.V. gave me a free copy of Bokida to play, review, what have you. Moving up in the world! (I think he got sick of my whinging. Victory is mine!)     Holy crap this one has been a long time coming. I’m aware that games don’t magically pop out […]

Hacknet – The Ultimate Multiplayer Game?

Yes. Yes, it is. You can go back to watching cat videos now. Still here? Oh, so you want reasons now. Fine. I’m down to clown. Hacknet, the hacking simulation game, was released a while back, but they just released a new DLC (which we didn’t make it too) and the dev is a super cool […]
