Interview: Robert Wahler on SiNKR

I’m always eager to talk to indie developers of puzzle games. The whole process of creating a puzzle is utterly fascinating to me. It’s hard enough to solve one; how do you even start thinking about making a good one?! That’s part of the reason I was so eager to...

Review: SiNKR 2

Though I didn’t play the first SiNKR, I was excited to get my hands on SiNKR 2. I met developer Robert Wahler at PAX East 2019, where he showed me the near-launch version of the game, walking me through the games many hooks lines and pucks, and doing a great job of convinci...

Spotlight: Dicey Dungeons

Dicey Dungeons is a turn based roguelite RPG with a  twist where players use dice to determine their success in battle. I first encountered the game at GDC 2019, where it was nominated for the Excellence in Design IGF award. Since I enjoyed what I played and it was only a taste o...

Kickstarter Watch: Mongrel

I have incredibly fond memories of playing Conker’s Bad Fur Day at a friends house growing up. It was at a friends house because (unsurprisingly if you know the basic premise of Conkers) the kind of humor it represented would NOT have flown with my parents. To this day, the...

Just Shapes & Beats Goes Hardcore

Announced yesterday, the frantic and fantastic Just Shapes & Beats will be coming to PS4 on May 10th. That’s not all though. Developer Berzerk Studio has been struggling with the fact that they’ve kept being told that Just Shapes & Beats wouldn’t be hard...

Interview: Tarn Adams of Bay 12 Games

Dwarf Fortress has always been a game I’ve admired and feared. I’ve been told many a tale of misadventures in the game, but with its intense level of control and less-than-easy-to-understand ASCII style graphics, I’ve never taken the plunge. However, with the re...

Spotlight: A Place for the Unwilling

If I had to pick the phrase that has caught my attention in a press release most quickly, “adventure set in the final 21 days of a dying Dickensian city” is certainly in the running. Spanish independent game developers AlPixel released a 6 minute narrative trailer for...

Epic gives Steam an Ultimatum

We’ve largely remained silent on the whole Epic Games Store versus Steam battle that’s been going on lately because, honestly, we’d rather just write about indie games on their own merits, as opposed to the store fronts they happen to be on. That’s not to ...

Light Fingers Gets Its Free Crook’d Captain DLC

Around a month ago, I reviewed a tabletop-style video game called Light Fingers. It’s a charming, competitive game with absolutely terrific art, and now there’s a free DLC update available to make things even more chaotic! The Crook’d Captain DLC brings with it ...

Review: Falcon Age

Falcon Age caught the attention of a lot of people when it was announced.  A first person adventure game, published and developed by Outer Loop Games, that revolved around caring for a pet falcon that you then used in battle? That’s an idea that has a lot of potential! Whil...

TwinCop Release Date Announced

It was only recently that I learned about TwinCop, a ridiculous and over the top cooperative game where each player controls one half of a cop, like some sort of bizarre synthwave fueled Frankenstein’s monster of the law. Zac Fierce mentioned it in the recent indie develope...
