Quiet City – There is no god

First, some mood music. Just let it play while you read this review.* It’s late night while I’m writing this. I go outside to get some fresh air. I smell cigarette smoke from one of the old men who are always out smoking. The cars drive by one the nearby freeway. A truck honks it’s horn. […]

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.

Full Disclosure: I’m still a fucking pleb paying full price for games. I mean, intellectually, I know I’ve nothing to deserve free games, but I still feel like I should be getting them somehow? #NorthAmerican #WhiteMale #EvenStillIWantFreeGames     Snakebird is quite possibly the most adorable puzzle game I’ve ever played.*  Bright colours, adorable birds […]

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 […]

Forma.8 – Black Blobbed Floaty Samus

Full Disclosure: As seems to be a trend these days, I bought this game like the rest of the plebs. WTF man. Where has all my game street cred gone?     Forma.8 is the newest release from the somewhat-unreassuringly-named Mixed Bag Games, out a few weeks ago on Steam, but earlier on other platforms. […]
