Easy Way to Install Cheat Engine for Astroneer & Other Games

Cheat Engine is a utility that allows loading “cheat tables” for personal use in offline gameplay for games that don’t have integrated cheat codes. If you’re nostalgic like me, think “Game Genie.” Using mods and cheat tools is not unethical or lazy and you should have no insecurity about wanting to use them! I’ll show you the best way to install Cheat Engine safely so you can experiment with this fun program too.… Read the rest

Nordic Ashes is the Cool New Viking Game

Nordic Ashes: Survivors of Ragnarok is a ride and a vibe–or whatever these new Midgardians call things. It was a great time trying the early access on Steam, and I’ll tell you about it. This is a passive auto-combat… roguelike–it’s a Vampire Survivors type game basically. Overall, these are good fun, and anybody can play them with a little familiarity with the genre. In this one, you play a Viking warrior (is that… Read the rest

Steam Has TONS of Really Good, Free Games Slightly Hidden

This is a tutorial on how to find and download free games on Steam. If you’re familiar with the Steam client store or website, you might know the layout can be incredibly open-ended. I use it every day, and it is one of my most useful resources. This allows for some exploration of methods to filter new games posted. Steam is considered one of the most essential clients for finding new game releases… Read the rest

Haiku the Robot is a Surprising New Indie I Played

Yep, Haiku the Robot is about robots, although you’re more likely to catch on fire before most of its poetics! It’s a dystopic pixel platformer with a variety of routes to navigate through. The tunnels are left from the aftermath of an apocalyptic turn. It does have somewhat of a narrative for the first minute. Mostly, you’ll be in the heat of battle. You are thrown into the general theme of trying to… Read the rest

Bumballon is One of a Kind in a Competitive Genre

I’ve got a great video up for Bumballon on my YouTube channel because I found this game on a Steam sale for 89 cents! With some investigation, I narrowed down some impulse options for pixel art platformers in the likes of some recent faves like Grapple Dog (which hopefully I’ll get to) and PomPom. It’s a game with unique characters and a traditional SNES-type side-scroller game that puts me into an optimized chill… Read the rest

Moonglow Bay is a Super Maritimes Themed Fishing Game

I’m a big fan of fishing in games, but even more so a good story involving it. Moonglow Bay has done it. It’s a story about a retired fisher getting back out there. It is also about settling a community’s superstitions and getting back to the foundation of their livelihood. The story takes place in a traditional Eastern Canadian seaboard fishing village in the 80s. It is otherwise perfectly afloat in its conventional… Read the rest

Fayburrow is a 3D VN Freebie Made By Students

Today, I plunged headfirst into the free games pile of new releases over on the Steam store. On my arrival, I discovered a cozy little visual novel among the listings called Fayburrow, and I decided to take a look at it. Fayburrow is a free game created by the self-named “Fayburrow Troupe” at VIA University College in Denmark. It just hit the Steam store today. What was first intrigue, turned into a fascination… Read the rest

Hogwarts Legacy: A Preview

Hogwarts Legacy is a Harry Potter game that is now a rumor up in the air for years. Now, its makers have finally lifted the veil and delivered an owl letter for all! We’re going back to Hogwarts in 2023, everybody, and it looks downright magical. Expecto Patronum!!!!! So far what we know is that this will be an open-world RPG. It will take place in and out of Hogwarts in the Wizarding… Read the rest

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

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

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

Beasts of Maravilla Island is Magical & Pleasant

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

Planet Zoo is an Awesome and Fun Animal Game

Personal revelation: I love animals! Always have, and always will. When I travel, one of my first attractions is usually a zoo, aquarium, or natural history museum. Not to mention beaches, refuges, and forests. And while we’re at it, throw some vegetarian restaurants into the mix. That is one reason today I’ll be reviewing Planet Zoo. Unfortunately, haven’t been able to go much of anywhere in a while due to you know what.… 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 thatโ€™s all you really need to know. But for the purpose of a true proper treatise on the subject, Iโ€™ll expand.ย  So, thereโ€™s not a ton of backstory in the beginning, not sure if thereโ€™s more later on, but youโ€™re just this little professor dude wandering through… Read the rest

The Big Journey is an Old Indie Game Involving Cats & Dumplings

Hey, when you say “roll around a dumpling-eating cat,” do you mean that literally? You do? Really? Okay, I’m in. Play The Big Journey and roll around a cat, who should be named Alpuss Dumplingdore (do not deny what a perfect name that would be.) Alright, alright. There’s nothing that bizarre about this game. Firstly, The Big Journey is unique, however, once you jump in, it’s pretty fleshed out. Secondly, despite the weird… Read the rest
