Vesper: Zero Light Edition is Out on Nintendo Switch REVIEW

Vesper: Zero Light Edition is out on Nintendo Switch and PC today! Players can find this new version, plus the big debut Switch release, on eShop and Steam. It’s an innovative platformer with arcane space vibes and shimmering, colorful environments. It also includes a compelling and innovative storyline told through holographic recordings and plentiful checkpoint diversions. I played the first twenty minutes on my Switch for you. I have to say it’s one… Read the rest

Galacticon is a Great Indie Retro Throwback to Classic Arcade Games REVIEW

Today, I’m taking a look at the soon-to-be-released, arcade-style title Galacticon from developer Radin Games. It’s similar in style to 1980s arcade games like Defender, Joust, and Jetpac. You might be familiar with some of these from the book Ready Player One; and maybe the film, but I can’t remember, although I know Joust featured prominently in the book. I sat down with the space-themed preview they provided and honestly got really into… Read the rest

Jaded is A Hidden Gem Worth Playing REVIEW

I love these platformer games that emerge from the woodwork every single day. Today, that game is Jaded by Shellsnore games, up on Steam. It’s a standard platformer with directional keys, jump, attack, and a special mechanic which is a time warp. Although the time warp mechanic is more of a cacoon slingshot kinda thing, it works pretty well. I was able to bind my controller to the basic keys with no problem.… Read the rest

Peglin – Pachinko Goblins Make This A Great Game REVIEW

Peglin is a great game where you complete levels by dropping a ball into a destructible pattern of mechanic-activating orbs. You can activate critical strike boosts, or replenish the board. And, before I gloss over too quickly, the purpose of this strategy is to rack up points that can then be used to attack mob health points, in effect winning the level and moving on. I was lucky enough to find the demo… Read the rest

BIOTA is a One of A Kind Retro Game Made by Expert Indie Lovers REVIEW

I’m going to try something new here. I have been known to review demos in the past, but they get kind of buried under other projects. I really want to dedicate time to as many as I’d like to. All things relevant, I made a post on Twitter about needing to play for Game Boy-style indies. I got a great tip from cshPinecone of Indie Game Collective about the game BIOTA from “small… Read the rest

Dogurai is Not Easy but It’s Great & Worth Sharing REVIEW

Dogurai by HungryBear is a Game Boy-style indie Metroidvania. I know about it through, a couple of co-creators from Indie Game Collective. Thank you, Jaunty Adventures and Pursuing Pixels. Their taste is superb, as this turned out to be an exciting game. I’ve covered very few Game Boy titles here, aside from Lasagna Boy and… actually, that might be it. It’s a great genre if you want to get into indies. In summary,… Read the rest

Inked: A Tale of Love Is a New Hand-Drawn Game REVIEW

Well, here I am, back to keep things fresh here with a showcase for Inked: A Tale of Love I have the privilege of receiving a review copy for what was originally a PC game, now out on Switch, Xbox, and Playstation. Today I tested out the Switch version on the handheld mode and made my way through the first couple of chapters to see how well the transition has been (plus promote… Read the rest

Mago is a Really Fun and Colorful New Game REVIEW

Let’s take a look at Mago: The Villain’s Burger. It’s filled with so many fun easy-to-learn but masterable abilities and unique mechanics that you just don’t find in every game. The best way to understand it is most likely visually, but today I’ll be talking about why Mago is a promising look at how its developers are creating something that is, possibly, capable of going big if they wish. So, let’s get started.… Read the rest

Make The Burger is an Indie Hidden Gem REVIEW

Welcome to my post about Make the Burger. This game’s release date on Nintendo Switch occurred this week, although it has a presence on Steam and ItchIO as well. This is a casual food truck sim with catchy and fun pixel environments and a line-up of hungry and paying illustrated customers. Your entire success is dependent on your ability to remember ingredient symbols and who ordered them. Take orders from customers to cook… Read the rest

What Lies in the Multiverse is a Unique & Cool Indie REVIEW

We’ve got a big event going on right now for THE BIG ADVENTURE. Many demos, and many great indies. I set my eyes on What Lies in the Multiverse first. It’s a collaboration between Studio Voyager, IguanaBee, and Untold Tales. Everything you’ll see in this game has a silvery thread of classic games like Fez, Owlboy, etc. But it’s a little more than technicolor flashing pixel animations, it’s dealing with a really awesome… Read the rest

Soul Delivery is a New & Promising Cyberpunk Thrill REVIEW

Alright, folks, I am compelled to write about this. Last night I posted a video of a game on itch.io called Soul Delivery. Yes, it is true, the graphics in this game are so stunning, it’s enough to short-circuit. Though, until now, I’ve never even heard of it. I don’t know who the dev is, and I don’t know anything more than what’s covered on the itch.io page. But, since there’s a demand… Read the rest

Down In Bermuda is a Tropical Hidden Gem on Switch REVIEW

Yak & Co released Down In Bermuda catering to the growing indie cozy fanbase in Q3 of 2019. Yes, this game is over two years old, but with the occasional mega discounts, from time to time and continuing interest it’s cognizant to explore. It’s still relevant, fun, and cozy–indeed. The level of a-ha moments in this puzzle platformer is suited to YouTube, Twitch, or wherever you want to turn a gathering into a… Read the rest

Greak is a Unique New Type of Game World REVIEW

Amongst the trove of pale-skinned characters, glowing misty caverns, and punchy character abilities, this one might be new to you. Greak: Memories of Azur is similar to platformers like Hollow Knight and Undertale, perhaps even Ori or maybe Hoa, sure. Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of any of those! What Greak offers is a borderline cozy adventure with very unique, engaging gameplay that is an experience of its own. Greak, Adara, and… Read the rest

Figment 2: Creed Valley is a Vibrant & Unique Game REVIEW

It seems that Figment 2: Creed Valley, is a new game headed to Nintendo Switch in February of 2022. I’ve been all about checking out these Switch demos right away, and when I saw this listed today I downloaded it immediately. I wasn’t quite sure what I was dealing with here, as it seemed somewhat derivative but also cozily familiar, the reason of which I discovered later. This game is really pleasant-looking though.… Read the rest

The Last Friend is a Great New Game With Dog Buddies Out Now REVIEW

In between monitoring my every action, eShop suggested I check out what demos were out. I had really been looking for them though! So, this game The Last Friend showed up as a demo out. The art looked cool and didn’t seem too derivative of anything course. So, I downloaded it and loaded it up. The Last Friend is a brawler kind of game with some turret defense mechanics. Most importantly, however, is… Read the rest

The Lightbringer (Demo) is What I Played Today REVIEW

Okay, let’s talk about The Lightbringer. This is kind of random. No, really, it is. Might as well roll for initiative. Anyway, I’ve been spending a ton of time on the Switch lately, since I was traveling with the handheld recently and got kind of used to it. However, I recorded it while playing on my TV, so I don’t know. Anyway, was looking back through some of my YouTube videos and realized… Read the rest

Monster League Will Make You Think Differently About New Racing Games REVIEW

It did The Mash! Monster League is essentially a complete kart racing Halloween game from the makers of Medieval Dynasty. It sits on the roster of Early Access titles and has since 2019, but fans are still playing it and are still nudging the team for a full release even now. Nobody really knows what is happening, but I had a lot of fun with this game and encourage you to purchase it… Read the rest

Beacon Pines is Finally Out Now and It’s Astonishing REVIEW

Beacon Pines is interactive fiction, but really it qualifies with a new level of cozy interaction and fathoms deep optimistic complexity to its characters. The basic structure of the story relies on an interesting plot device made of… well, plot devices! You start in a storybook tale of a young fawn, though I’d say that’s up for interpretation, named Luka at his grandmother’s. Through exploration and experimentation and interacting with those around you… Read the rest

Kick Bot is a New Indie That I Played & it is Awesome REVIEW

“Kick Bot,” it’s an exciting precision platformer on the way from Two Scoops games. It’s time for Dave Pizza to step outside his comfort zone and try some of these more challenging game foes. And I’ll tell you, I thought it was broken because I didn’t know how to play it. It’s definitely challenging, but definitely possible. And with the retro-tastic sound effects and neon robot package, it’s exciting to look at and… Read the rest

Golfie is a Cozy New Golf Card Game Indie REVIEW

Golfie is a new concept game from Triheart Studio labeled rogue-like deck-building mini-golf. They’ve just released a demo, and I was able to get a first-hand look at the game and its odds and ends. The environments are pleasant, the gameplay fun, and I’d love to see more down the line. I had to doubletake the genre with all those tags, but it’s a neat little game that actually maintained my attention quite… Read the rest

Big Boy Boxing is a Great Game Homage That You Have to See DEMO

Big Boy Boxing is a cartoony indie boxing dev inspired by Cuphead and the classic late 80’s NES game Punch-Out!! The concept is polished and shiny for contemporary indie players who thrive on retro quirks in new games. You play as a new boxer, trained up through the earnest beginning in the ring with a trainer, Coach Hank. At this stage of development, the demo is pretty short with only one contender, but… Read the rest

Dark Dragonkin is A Little, Simple Indie I Played DEMO

Dark Dragonkin is an indie dev project from Twintertainment that is a top-down pixelized fantasy RPG/dungeon-crawler. Players control multiple characters in a group to make them work together to defeat enemies and advance the story. This game is still deep in the dev process with a potential audience of RPG fans and general indie gamers. It feels very attended to as a solo dev project though, and the potential to scale abilities and… Read the rest

Colorblend fx Desaturation is an Interesting Freebie DEMO

Colorblend fx Desaturation is an upcoming game released in demo form shortly before testing it here on my end. It’s a 3D platformer with story-rich puzzle-solving elements that blend ideas about color and storytelling. The characters in Colorblend fx Desaturation consist of a wholesome-ish pack of potato-headed buds called the Splatians. And deep in the fire and brimstone caverns of who knows where is the abode of nefarious minions sworn to a meanie… Read the rest

The Universim is a Fantastic New World Sim I Tried REVIEW

The Universim is a civilization simulator from Crytivo that combines features from planet sims with more advanced skill trees. The game touts a robust planet-level environment with the ability to manage the course of civilization from primal to advanced stages. The game is still in development but is going through a rigorous beta, although you can purchase early access on Steam, which many have. I’m kind of reminded here of experiences of other… Read the rest

Go Heroes: Prometheus is an Interesting Project DEMO

Go Heroes is a coming soon, turn-based RPG based on the stories of Greek Mythology. Each level is filled with puzzles that not only advance your progress in the game but progress the story. It is not quite isometric but rather described as four-directional–it is sort of like using a board game with camera controls. You play as Prometheus, the Greek titan, who dared give the gift of fire to mankind. I am… Read the rest

UROS: A Trip Through Shadows is a New Freebie Student Game REVIEW

UROS: A Trip Through Shadows is a game from the ESAT student game studio program in Valencia. I previously reviewed a title from this group called Twin Stones which was extremely fun. UROS is a 2D fantasy action platformer-style game that exhibits independent lore that borrows from Hades-like underworld lore. As you progress through the map of UROS you will unlock new areas and obstacles and make your way toward, presumably, a scenario… Read the rest

Indoorlands is an Awesome New Theme Park Sim… Indoors REVIEW

So, here we go with this first look at Indoorlands. Greetings gamers and spectators alike. Today, I have a showcase on a game coming soon to Steam in an early-access stage. I’ve acquired access to the game via my community at Indie Game Collective. I have a fondness for sims and a passion for indie games. So, I am mentally ready to try out Indoorlands I think. This is a concept with high… Read the rest

Fugl is a VERY Colorful Little Indie That I Played REVIEW

The word Fugl means bird in Norwegian. Fugl is a casual sandbox indie game created by a small group of dedicated developers. Its story is whatever you make it, and the gameplay is most certainly endorsed by all birds. I started as a colorful neutral voxel bird in a voxel world and glide through the treetops and oceans, plus more. Interact with your environment to test new experiences. Transform into other birds, try… Read the rest

Universe for Sale Looks Like a Good Sci-Fi Game DEMO

Universe for Sale is an upcoming title that combines sci-fi themes and metaphysical themes into a quirky and compelling visual novel/interactive fiction. I already do not recall the main character’s name, and neither will you, as the shroud of mystery is an important part of this introduction. He is a self-described “cultist” with a floating head who drops into a tea shop on Jupiter to meet with a young lady named Lila. The… Read the rest

Fall Guys is Still Awesome and Now It’s a Freebie on Nintendo Switch REVIEW

So, the idea behind Fall Guys is this: you create a jelly bean-like thing character and design them, then you push play and skydive (on a load screen) into a pink, purple, and cotton candy blue obstacle course of hilarious wonder with 60 other jelly beans. If you make it to the finish line in time before at least 40 players you qualify for the next round. If not you have to start over. Fall… Read the rest

Catlateral Damage is A Hilarious Hidden Gem REVIEW

Catlateral Damage is a game from Itch.IO that is so simple in concept, but so enjoyable that way! I also know it is time for another review! This game is part of a bundle I obtained and is one of many great games over at Itch. The game is about you, a cat, in a playground suitable for the mischievous antics of a cat. The objective of the game is to knock stuff… Read the rest

Sky Rogue is a Unique Retro Flight Sim REVIEW

When I first started reviewing games, I wrote a list of flying games that I found intriguing around the time Sky Rogue first appeared on my radar. I feel like Sky Rogue has evolved from my first perception of it though. My own style is a bit different too since I’ve stepped out a bit more from my digital pacifism, at least on principle. Not much though. This is another game that has… Read the rest

Wild Dive is A Simple Freebie Platformer REVIEW

Hello friends. Today I’m reviewing a really brief but beautiful and fun game called Wild Dive. You may have noticed some changes around here in content and how often I’m posting. No worries, this is still a regular blog, only I’ve been spending a little more of the time I allot for it on cosmetic aspects of the site and refining older posts. I’m not done yet, but it’s getting there. I also… Read the rest

Because It’s Hot! Why Pizza? is a Weird, Interesting Indie REVIEW

I’m back, reviewing a game. An indie game. A very indie game. An indie game prologue. Because it’s hot! – Why Pizza? Freeze frame. But seriously, I am in recovery from an intense year of reviews. So, when I saw this perfectly amusing stylized demo on Steam with a radical pizza theme, I narrowed in on it. What IS this!? Because it’s Hot is a platformer y’all. But I almost forgot since this… Read the rest

Space Mechanic Simulator is a Really Terrific Game I Tried REVIEW

Let’s talk about an upcoming space game! Space Mechanic Simulator is a 3D space-sim in outer space. So far, this game is still in development, but that may have changed by the time you read this. It is currently in development with a demo on steam that I am reviewing here. Your job is to repair space stations, spaceships, and presumably other space vehicles with a sophisticated drill and a meter. Obtain parts… Read the rest

Forgotten Fields is a New Indie About a Young Man’s Private Life REVIEW

Forgotten Fields is an indie-developed story-rich interactive game by Frostwood Interactive. It is about a young Indian author seeking inspiration for his next book in the midst of a major family transition at his childhood home. The character, Siddharth, visits home which at first seems a distraction but may help him re-think his writing completely. The game design is aesthetically pleasing low-poly 3D modeling combined with interactive puzzles and visual novel-style dialogue. It… Read the rest

Rail Route is a Train Dispatcher Simulator Railfans Love REVIEW

Rail Route is a railroad dispatch strategy game for PC. Trains that travel between stations, railyards, and tracks do so at the discretion of railroad dispatchers. They use special display maps to direct traffic. This game takes most of the nuances of this real technology and has created a simulation. It uses simple mechanics to build a railroad empire. With many options, an informative tutorial, and room to expand, you’ll be keeping an… Read the rest

Taranasus’s Vecter is the Long Time Indie Sadly Ending Now

Vecter is a free racing game available on Steam from Taranasus. The game is a procedurally generated vector-based graphic racer/flyer with a catchy background. It has thousands of overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam. It has recently come to a conclusion and left a legacy of the power of free games and participants from an adoring community. Up until April 3rd, 2021 the game was served with constant improvement and imaginative gameplay. It is… Read the rest

BattleCakes is an Astonishingly Colorful and Sweet Indie I Played REVIEW

BattleCakes is a game in development by Volcano Bean, an indie studio. Play as a customizable cupcake person and explore the town you live in. Talk to other cake-like characters around town and even solve some mysteries. You can solve the problems around town when you head out the gates and take on the gumdroplins, some goblin gum drops, in the park. You can battle, you do indeed have a sword, but you… Read the rest

Escaping Winter is a Simple Little Indie I Played REVIEW

Escaping Winter is a strategy game about a forest colony that has to survive the winter every few turns. It’s safe to say that this is more of a JAM than anything, solely representing some conceptual ideas. Indeed, civ strategy games are not my forte, but I think this idea is unique enough. If unprepared a winter might be the downfall of a society if it lasts long enough. Luckily it just makes… Read the rest

Coffee Talk is the Greatest Alternate Fantasy World Dating Sim REVIEW

Coffee Talk is an interactive visual novel released in the pumpkin spice season of 2020. You play a barista in Seattle in a futuristic/alternate universe. Your customers range from humans to succubus, and it is your job not only to make them coffee in your coffee shop but also to help talk them through their personal problems.

A Cottage Story is an indie fantasy-style visual novel currently in development by indie developer LadyMeowsith on itch.IO. The theme is what is described as, “Cottage-Core.” You’ll play as Emory, or whichever moniker you choose. Your form is selectable as well. You are a human/changeling grown up far away from humans.

Try to live true in a world dominated by an esoteric caste… Read the rest

ToeJam and Earl: Back in the Groove is Out Now as a Retro Indie REVIEW

The game traces its origins to a 1994 Sega Genesis game called “ToeJam & Earl.” Simple enough. I suppose the novelty is that whether it is a solo team or a small team, an indie-developed video game is always a novelty when it becomes really popular. And de facto, the fact that it is indie. This is my suspicion at least.I’ve been mining the Gamefly indie genre listings for some new games lately.… Read the rest

Henchman Story is that Terrific & Bizarre Visual Novel About Super Heroes REVIEW

I’ve been trying to give visual novels a place in my catalog. It’s a fun game style that is conducive to some good storytelling. Incidentally, I keep finding more and more edgy but good-natured humor in them. Pick a theme and go, that’s where I’d like to see these go. Most of these games are also tagged as dating sims. But that is pretty much secondary to my interest in them, however, it… Read the rest

Indie Demo Reviews 3/4/2021

So here’s a brief compilation of some cool indie demo reviews of games I played recently, which deserve a little cred. (Please note: some of these games have been released since I tried them, so they might be associated with a price in the Steam Store links.) Indie Demo Reviews 1: Jennifer Wilde: Unlikely Revolutionaries This demo is super short, but it lets you try out the mechanics and the art style. It’s… Read the rest

Go, Morse, Go! Arcade Edition is an Unexpected and Terrific Hidden Gem REVIEW

Just a forewarning, I’m going to use Go Morse Go! as an introduction to a very personal interest in radio and telegraph topics. But aside from that, may I first inform you that this game is quite neat. It’s like Powerpuff Girls with rabbits that know how to rock the CW. There was some news of Powerpuff Girls trending recently, so I guess I found this fact amusing. This is a real casual… Read the rest

Super Indie Karts is the Only Competition Out There REVIEW

I’ve had my eye on Super Indie Karts for a while. This game has been in a bottleneck since 2014, but it’s come a long way. I decided to be adventurous and check out the early access option on Steam, and see what’s up. It’s kind of callous I guess to absolutely immediately compare Super Indie Karts to Super Mario Kart. It is in fact very similar, but it’s a different beast. Actually,… Read the rest

Doug Hates His Job is a New Game With a Chip On Its Shoulder REVIEW

I was provided a review copy to check out an independent dev game from Super-Villain Games for Switch called Doug Hates His Job to be released on Nintendo Switch on March 5th, 2021. I’d like to think it’s because of my skills and not my pizza body that I was hired for this task. But it was probably my pizza bod. Just kidding, THANK YOU so much! Remember the classic film Office Space.… Read the rest

Balloon o Mania is a Free Indie Hidden Gem REVIEW

I have been attempting to perfect my gentleman speak for like over a decade now. It’s a lost cause. What I do know, however, is that I am a video game blogger and not Lord Alfred Tennyson. I’ll do my best not to too scuff your wingtips, Oxfords, Mary Janes, Pumas, Jordans, or other fancy footwear. Have you ever watched Antiques Road Show? Edify yourself, it’s on PBS and started in Britain. Lots… Read the rest

Lo-Fi Room is One of the First Indie Games I Played REVIEW

I had the privilege of playing an itch.IO demo today called Lo-Fi Room. It is a member of the rhythm genre. It’s taken on a new kind of life within the indie game scene though. You can search game databases for games that have tags like “rhythm” or simply music. There are incarnations of this genre for Android and iOS devices as well. Developers have really gone hog wild with the possibilities. Rhythm… Read the rest

Clocker is A Complex New Puzzle Indie on Nintendo Switch REVIEW

I just saw Clocker released on Nintendo eShop this morning for a reasonable $3, so I snatched it up and gave it a go. These Switch games are kind of hard to predict sometime, but you have to pay your portion for the privilege once in a while. I do not really know what the origins of this game are. It was listed under Indie in eshop, with no publisher info. A little… Read the rest

Beasts of Maravilla Island is Magical & Pleasant REVIEW

Beasts of Maravilla Island is a mindful and progressive concept revolving around the science, hobby, and storytelling of isolated ecosystems and their sometimes astonishing, in this case even magical, discoveries. It’s a game about collecting documentation and exploring the flora and fauna of an environment, where combat or violent interaction is non-existent. I wish I could say non-violence in games is more common, but games are still in the formative years of non-violence,… Read the rest

Princess Farmer is a Unique and Colorful Indie Out Now REVIEW

The game is called Princess Farmer. Princess Farmer is essentially a complex row-matching game, mixed with some RPG and storytelling elements. With some pixel graphics and a cozy story about bunnies, it’s a lot of fun. The style is pink and indie in the best way, and it is fun just to look at. I’m pretty much a sucker for anything with this style. I’m not totally sure what you would call it,… Read the rest

Cosmo’s Quickstop is That Out of this World Co-Op REVIEW

Cosmo’s Quickstop is a game about working a summer job as an alien in your uncle’s intergalactic truck-stop–more or less, it’s actually more of a gas station with full service but this is my review, hands off. One thing I really want to share is I have worked in the transportation industry doing stuff like is in this game, and the developers who created obviously know how these places work. The game has… Read the rest

Phoenotopia is the That Terrific Pink Hair Indie Game REVIEW

I sat down this morning, had something to drink, and thought, let’s play that really cool game that makes me feel good whenever I see art from it. Let’s play… Phoenotopia: Awakening. Heads up: this is based on the demo on Steam. There’s quite a bit of content in the demo though. Don’t contemplate the parallels of one or the other too much, at least for this review. Probably better to get the… Read the rest

Lasagna Boy is Weird and Scary But Really, Really, Hilarious REVIEW

“HEADS UP,” Moderately creepy imagery is in Lasagna Boy, this will be my only warning. I don’t generally review horror games, but Lasagna Boy made me laugh, and then, it intrigued me. It merits analysis based on absurdity alone but also on design. I also personally understand people like illustrating and drawing creepy monsters because… well, it’s fun! Why not throw in a third or fourth eyeball here and there? We’ve been doing… Read the rest

5 Cool Indie Switch Games Reviewed

I’ve been meditating on a few game on my Switch that I simply didn’t have a lot to say about but that I enjoyed playing. I recorded some gameplay and present it to you here with some short thoughts on some good, even popular, but fully engrossing with no absolution for full-length articles. So, as you my guess, you’re in for a treat. (P.S. The numerical order of the games has no significance… Read the rest

Metaverse Keeper is a Little Hidden Gem Rogue-Like on Switch

It occurred to me today, as it does every day here in the Pizza Command Center, that I don’t quite know what my ethos is. And then it occurred to me during my game session with Metaverse Keeper that while most of my reviews are very clean, combined with my own yearn, my own challenge to write about these games and why I’m playing aren’t necessarily clear. So, to clear this up, this… Read the rest

The Last Campfire is THE Game For Heart & Imagination – REVIEW

The Last Campfire is a sincerely knowing guide to the heart. It’s a genuine roleplay in what it means to feel an idea of spiritual compassion or to know what it is to be kind. That’s a rare topic in any context. A character named Ember holds the key to bringing light again to an in-between world. You may be hesitant about such a task, maybe the path is unclear. The spirits of… Read the rest

Knights and Bikes is the Best Game About Adventure & Imagination

I knew when I read the description of Knights and Bikes on the Nintendo eShop page, and the bounty of awards adorning it, that this was probably going to be pretty cool. It explores some great themes like imagination, curiosity, and adventure. Also, it’s about finding those adventures in a place you don’t need to journey far to find. I’ll be exploring some of these topics in my experience with Knights and Bikes,… Read the rest

Nordlicht is The Sweet Indie About Nordic Family Life

I feel privileged to review this game since there seems to be sparse information elsewhere, but I think you’re going to like it. At only $3.99 on the eShop, the regular price, it’s a great deal with sophisticated gameplay for the casual gamer or family. You can probably complete it within a couple of hours depending on your detective skills, but it’s a generously paced experience.  Nordlicht is a family-friendly storybook stylized find-the-object… Read the rest

Alpaca Ball: All Stars is Free on Nintendo Switch & It’s Good

Alpaca Ball is about having fun. It’s exactly what you need it to be. A game about alpacas playing soccer, I mean football, I mean ball, or maybe Europe is starting to call it soccer, or maybe they only call it that because of Americas–wait, where is this game from? There’s Spanish music and the first level is Machu Picchu, which is in Peru, but the developers are in Austria, and the game… Read the rest
