Spotlight: We Are The Caretakers

One of the best surprises at this year’s PAX East was being able to try We Are The Caretakers.  I’ve been following the game’s narrative lead, Xalavier Nelson Jr., for a long time of social media (he’s got the perfect combo of excellent games writing and p...

Spotlight: Embr

The gig economy takes a lot of well deserved crap from people, but it hasn’t really been taped by the video game community as a subject matter to be explored. This is shame, because it’s absolutely perfect mechanically for a video game. How do I know this? Embr exists...

PAX Sptolight: One Step From Eden

If I was forces to choose the indie game that impressed me most at this year’s PAX East, it’d be One Step From Eden. Hidden among the games at the Indie Minibooth, I was initially a little shocked by it’s tagline of combining action gameplay with roguelike eleme...

5 Phenomenal Party Games from PAX East 2019

PAX East is always the place to find and play party games. The environment of a convention, full of tons of people eager to dunk on either their best friends, or an unsuspecting 10 year old, is perfect for those kind of crazy, hectic games that nearly always end up in shouts of j...

PAX Spotlight: Wytchwood

Fairy Tales are such a gold mine for game settings and concepts. They’ve certainly been explored by many games in one way or another, but I still think that there’s a huge wealth to be tapped. Alientrap Games are doing just that with Wytchwood, an exploration and craf...

PAX Spotlight: WORLD OF HORROR

I originally visited the Ysbryd booth at PAX East this year to check out N1rv Ann-A, but ended up getting to the booth a bit early. No seats were open for N1RV Ann-A, so I took the time to play the press demo of a game titled WORLD OF HORROR. Boy am I glad I did. What I found was...

Review: Tech Support – Error Unknown

IndieHangover is a passion project for me, not my day job. While I wear more than a few hats at my work, my title is officially “IT Manager”. So, perhaps its understandable why I was a little bit hesitant to to spend my game time playing a title called Tech Support &#...

PAX Spotlight: N1RV Ann-A

I’ve never played VA-11 HALL-A (too many games, too little time), so I was going into my press demo of the follow up, N1RV Ann-A, pretty blind on how the actual gameplay worked. I new that, like its predecessor, you were acting as a bartender, hearing the woes of patrons, a...

PAX Spotlight: Half Past Fate

Half Past Fate was a surprise for me at this year’s PAX East. Developer Serenity Forge has made some absolutely amazing, impactful games, but they’ve all looked very different from the brightly colored and cartoony look of Half Past Fate. That’s not even conside...

GDC 2019 Spotlight: Sparklite

At GDC 2019, we got the chance to try out Sparklite, a roguelite brawler adventure published by Merge Games and developed by Red Blue Games.  Inspired by games like Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past and Rogue Legacy,  Sparklite is definitely a title you should keep an eye on if...

PAX Spotlight: Flotsam

I love me a good city building game. There’s something about acting as a metaphysical governor/mayor that really appeals to me: making tough decisions that affect the citizens of the city, building infrastructure, establishing commerce and trade. I just find it relaxing and...
