    Hollow Knight is Charmingly Spooky, and an Award-Winning Classic

    If you want a game not confined to an era or trend or anything really, you might want to check out Hollow Knight. Gamers have branded it indie without hesitancy, but it’s something much more than that. It manages to caste a dim light into the shadows left by predecessors In a world–run by bugs–in a dingy old cave: where despite a gloomy mournful environment lies adventure. Hollow Knight Takes You Into a…

    The Hayseed Knight is Not Bad, And is Cool To Look At

    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/whatever you want to call it, a visual novel. The themes are probably around Teen+, only in the PG-13 range though.…

    The Cultist Simulator is a Great Introduction to Lovecraftian Gameplay

    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…

    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…

    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?…

    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…

    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…

    Everybody Really Needs to Play The Sims At Some Point

    The Sims is a wonderful game, even for its relaxing gameplay qualities. I’ve been a casual player of The Sims for decades. I even tried out the cloud gaming version on my Xbox recently and was amazed by its nuances. When I was about midway through The Sims 3 seasons I wondered if this game needed to go further than it already had. But it has, and gamers love it! Background: The Sims…

    Animal Crossing: New Horizons is Still One of Nintendo’s Top Games (For a Reason)

    Animal Crossing: New Horizons is essentially the original reason I now have a Nintendo Switch. There are so many good games for Switch that are perfectly mindful and low-stress, but the media circling around how wonderful this game actually did sell me in a moment of post-materialistic rebellion that I actually don’t really regret. This game took me to a new realm of peaceful gameplaying. Okay, I Have Animal Crossing, Now What? Humble…

    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…
