Even the Ocean – Story and Motion

Full Disclosure: This was just a dumb working title I had but I forgot to change it before I finished the article. Oops. Oh well, my shame of loving terrible rhymes will follow me to the grave now.     I’ve been waiting for this game since it was announced at the end of Anodyne. […]

Mega Man 2.5D – Fangame Man

Fan games and ROM hacks are a mixed bag. Most of them have good intentions. The intentions presumably being to share one’s love of a video game franchise by making your own version to share. I’ve explored a bunch of these games over the years and found a lot of fun along with a whole […]

6180 The Moon – Up In The Sun’s Grill

Full disclosure: I know the developers of this game at Turtle Cream, but I purchased my copy of 6180 the Moon like the rest of the plebs. ㅠㅠ     This is a bit of a weird one. You’re the moon, and you’ve suddenly realized that the sun has disappeared. So, you, as the moon, decide to […]

Zup! 3 – Back to Basics Again?

Full Disclosure: I have never played Zup! 1 or 2, nor will I ever play Zup! 1 or 2. I will likely play Zup 4 though.  Basically, there’s gravity and you blow stuff up. Or around. Or down. Move the ball with the yellow blocks and then get the ball on the green thing. Then […]

Total Battery – Gameographies

Straight up, Gon Lee of Total Battery is a frickin’ machine. Dude, has like a wife and two kids, a full time job (at his father’s battery company aptly named, you guessed it, Total Battery), and he still manages to put out a game every few months. I, on the other hand, woke up at 12 […]

GUNMETAL ARCADIA ZERO

Is this a game that has wizards in it? Yes. Can you be a wizard in this game? Yes. Final game score: 10/10 . . . Gunmetal Arcadia Zero is pretty much right my alley as far as awesome game stuff goes. It’s a retro style 2D exploration platformer. A Metroidvania if you will. Well… […]

1993 SPACE MACHINE – PEW! PEW! PEW!

I likes me a good shooter. Flying around in a little space ship blasting things is one of the most fundamental aspects of video games since pretty much forever. 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 […]

Luke Sidewalker – An Ode to New York

Full Disclosure: I have no idea who this guy is. I kinda want to meet them and get really drunk though.   Sometimes you decide screw it, I’m going to pay the two bucks and see what’s in the box. I was first drawn to Luke Sidewalker by its promise of “featuring unGooglable music and a […]
