Space Games & Casual Blog Stuff 🍕

When I first started blogging in a format similar to this, it was probably a decade ago on a very short-lived Blogspot that I abandoned after the purpose it served was fulfilled. I really wanted to start this specific blog to rekindle that sensation, the writing part that is. I’ve figured out that I can write about games nonstop and if I really want people to read more, it’s not that hard. At some point, I might try to even advertise outside of social media, if it seems the right thing too. You guys have been so awesome in helping… Read the rest

Metaverse Keeper is a Little Hidden Gem on Nintendo Switch

This game has a very simple concept behind it, one that I’m not sure of the importance of really–it’s very light–but it’s good enough to kick off another exploration of the eShop and click to purchase. Metaverse Keeper seems to have been promoted really hard lately. I never really thought a whole lot about this title, but since it’s resurfacing in the real metaverse of social media, I’ll take a look here. (By the way, this has nothing to do with Meta or Cyberpunk, which is odd–but fine.) So, without any more delay, here’s Metaverse Keeper. Metaverse Keeper Has a… Read the rest
