The Hayseed Knight is an Awesome Accomplishment

I’ve been getting really interested in games like The Hayseed Knight and I don’t really know why I haven’t explored them further. I reviewed a game last week called Brok: The Investigator, similar mostly in the ways of it is an anthropomorphic visual novel. The Hayseed Knight is through and through an anthro/furry/whatever you want to call it, visual novel. The themes are probably around Teen+, only in the PG-13 range though. Nothing… Read the rest

Hollow Knight is an Astonishing World You Need To Try

Hollow Knight, alright here are the descriptors. It’s dark, really dark, but also kind of… cute? In a world, run by bugs, in a dingy old cave lies adventure. That was my attempt at movie trailer narration. Get ready to kick bugs. I found this game on GameFly, where I’ve got a queue of indie games lined up. Why not? Games can be expensive, but I can’t do this without getting hands-on with… Read the rest

The Cultist Simulator is a Dark Indie

The Cultist Simulator was offered on Play Pass, so I sat down and played it on my tablet before this. My Play Pass subscription is about to end the trial–I’m still going to keep it–but there are tons of paid indie games for free on there. After some adjustments to my desk for ergonomics (it’s quite nice now), I am ready to go. Descriptors of The Cultist Simulator It’s a digital tabletop card… Read the rest

The Last Campfire is THE Game For Heart & Imagination

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

Yoshi’s Crafted World is A Beautiful Cardboard Dream

I had to remember how to play this game, but once I did I remembered how carefree it is to play this game, a nice array of forgiving obstacles and high attention to detail in its very particular artistic style. I meant to write something about it a while ago, but I kept overthinking it. Today I have some videos, screenshots, and seasoned thoughts on Yoshi’s Crafted World. What is Yoshi’s Crafted World?… Read the rest

The Beggar’s Ride is a Terrific Old Indie You Should Know About

I did not know I would be playing, so soon, another bearded wanderer taking on deific powers again after Chronology, but here I am. What a wonderful this game is. It is so complex and challenging, yet the creative touch of the creators guide you and your bewildered hero all the way. And it looks magnificent! I think I am starting to develop a crush on beautiful 2D side-scrollers! It Begins The idea… Read the rest

Chronology is an Interesting, Frugally Priced Game I Played

In the game Chronology, you start off as a short-in-stature, accented professor with gnomish qualities. Honestly, if you want to just jump in now and play that’s all you really need to know. But for the purpose of a true proper treatise on the subject, I’ll expand.  So, there’s not a ton of backstory in the beginning, not sure if there’s more later on, but you’re just this little professor dude wandering through… Read the rest

The Sims 4 is Still The Best Substitute for Reality

The Sims had a demo for Windows 98 that I found as a teenager. My sister and I both were absolutely enthralled with it. I made a Japanese shoji house with a lawn made of swimming pools and carpeted sidewalks between the rooms. I made a bachelor pad with a dance club in the attic. I made my sims drink juice and blow bubbles for days. Oh yeah, it’s The Sims! The Game,… Read the rest

Animal Crossing is the Best Popular Cozy Game Still

It is time. Animals are crossing in the Animal Crossing, peaches are gonna roll. I got started with this game earlier this month. It is the quintessential non-violent, casual, time-passing game in this year. This game is for Nintendo Switch only! I should have mentioned that. In fact, this game is essentially the major reason I now have a Nintendo Switch. There are so many good games for Switch that are perfectly mindful… Read the rest

Going Under is A Really Colorful, Fun Game But Hard

Going Under: Internships are Heck is a stylistic, colorful, satirical beat ’em up from Aggrocrab Games. Here we go again. I am officially hooked on Going Under. Snagging it quickly on release day, I have some observations on what this is all about, and I like it. Mainly that it looks great and is very tongue-in-cheek hilarious in addressing some very thematic cultural themes in start-up businesses. What the fizz’ is it? FIzzle… Read the rest
