    BRIMO by Mama Makes Games (Browser)

    ho makes some really fun games. Itโ€™s another free one, and I am not totally sure how I found it (donโ€™t worry I found the link,) but itโ€™s a good one to share here. The game runs on any web browser, and itโ€™s about a plant named Audrey who waters plants in a desert with a tongue-in-cheek drink called โ€œBRIMO.โ€ Use arrow keys and your space bar to feed plants and refuel on BRIMO. The game is a nod to a couple of cult classic movies, which you could probably guess the names of. Nothing too complicated here, just a…

    Pupperazzi – Photography Game With Silly Dogs (Review)

    Pupperazzi Title Screen

    Dogs dashing, catching, posing, and dogs riding scooters to surfboards throughout the whole game. Pupperazzi is a comedy game with a pretty clean content concept. In all honesty, I initially wasn't too interested in the game, until I saw it was on Xbox Gamepass where I tried it for free. To my surprise, I found this game very funny, and it had enough achievement-based gameplay that it was actually quite fun. I know games like this aren't for everybody, but I thought it was a good romp that didn't require too much brainpower. So, here we go with my complete…

    Donut County – A Hilarious Game About Making Stuff Fall In Holes

    Forgive, me, because we're about to "dive into" some game material from the past. All the way back to the year 2018. Which isn't really that long ago, making the sentiment of that sentence nearly arbitrary actually. Donut County is on its fourth year after release, and I've been meaning to play it for about half of that time. Why did I wait so long? I have no idea, but anything that was offsetting about it has vanished from any of my pre-conceptions. Donut County is a hilarious, strategy-based game from Annapurna Interactive, a publisher of some really good indie…

    Eternia: Pet Whisperer – This Isn’t a Normal Pet Adoption Game (But It’s Still Cute)

    Eternia Menu

    There's a short, charming story in Eternia: Pet Whisperer. Even if you're a cockatoo/border-collie lover like me, or whether you lean more toward the exotic koala/frill-necked lizard, or rat brothers. These animals have a slight backstory, and cute appearance, plus a natural subtle wit. It's got that solo dev quirk that I love best of all, where the plot derails to form a full loopable plot-line but keep things manageable; that's a plus, folks. And I'm not going to spoil it for you, because you deserve that, but also because I think it's one of the charms of the game.

    Mago – The Villain’s Burger: This Adventure is Magic

    Mago: The Villain's Burger is an adventure set in a world populated by fresh NES sprites and joyful playful storytelling. It is your responsibility as Mago (which is a perfect name for a sorcerer) to rescue the princess and do heroic things. 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…

    Dadish 2 – The Rad Game About a Radish Dad (Review)

    I'm spending time playing a lot of food games lately. While cooking sims are the most obvious manifestation of this, platformers like Dadish 2 are right on board too. Dadish 2 is a continuation of the original Dadish game and both are available on most platforms. You, Dadish, awake from a nap at work one day when your several radish children come to visit you for "bring your kids to work day." They convince you to leave the chainsaw and cannon-filled office building and set off into this weird world. Dadish 2 has a narrative that is humorously inconsistent but…

    The Christmas Power Glove (A Silly Flash Fiction)

    Power Glove Ad Screen

    I could do anything with the Christmas Power Glove. Decorate trees, bake gingerbread cookies, send letters to Santaโ€ฆ inscribe my name on the moon. Woah, wait a minute, Iโ€™m letting this get to my head, itโ€™s too much. Iโ€™m not saying Iโ€™m blaming him, but I had a bad feeling when the glove shot 10-foot streams of fire and melted the snowman someone had made behind my car on the driveway. His carrot nose looked like a burnt hot dog. I knew we weren't dealing with some ho-ho-homemade electronics projects, the Christmas Power Glove was bad, so bad. It made…

    Chair Simulator: It Actually Wasn’t That Bad

    Chair Simulator Title Screen

    I must have a sick sense of humor if I decided to go on this journey so eagerly in the gaming verse. I have a sense of humor, sorry for the orneriness. C'mon though "CHAIR" Simulator!? What's weird is it actually wasn't that bad. And it's free. If you literally have nothing else to do, just try it. I'm only jesting guys, obviously the creator was tongue in cheek when they created this, but I was surprised by the attention to gameplay that was put into this for being a joke game. Well, that, or it was created by aliens,…

    Superstorm Melon Date Review: Really Weird But Sweet

    superstorm melon date visual novel dating mutant weird

    Superstorm Melon Date is a visual novel that takes place in a relatively near dystopic future. People live in shelters and return to the surface only periodically because climate change has plagued the earth with frequent superstorms that burden humanity. People have developed widespread allergies and only the rich can raise fully human children. Therefore, a hybrid species of half melon people have outnumbered humans because they have better immune systems. To tie it all together, the plot of the game is about you going on a date with a melon person listed on an internet dating website. A melon…
