Cultist Simulator

Cultist Simulator, a game developed by Weather Factory and published by Humble Bundle. While this game appears to have a very basic theme, it’s actually quite complex. In fact, it’s so complex that it makes me wonder how exactly they even managed to make it work. Weather Factory was co-founded by Alexis Kennedy and Lottie…

Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered

The Red Faction series has a lengthy, and surprisingly storied, history. Much like the characters in the games themselves. Feared lost when THQ died the firey death of mismanagement, shockingly freed from Games for Windows Live and now remastered and made free to existing owners. And that’s just Red Faction Guerrilla! The amount of attention…

Wizard Of Legend

Wizard of Legend is an action adventure rogue-like/lite from the hands a duo by the moniker of Contingent99. The game takes place in some other universe as most of this variety do, and this universe has magic. This theme is common but that doesn’t mean it’s old or boring, so I gave them the benefit…

The Adventure Pals

The Adventure Pals is a side-scrolling puzzle platformer with melee combat elements developed by Massive Monster. Armor Games Studios had a hand in the publishing, and I have to say that I find it mildly surprising.

Into The Breach

Into the Breach has quite a legacy to live up to. Not only is it the younger brother of critically successful strategy roguelike FTL, but it’s also had a solid three year development and lots of inspiration from XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Pacific Rim. In summary, Into the Breach should be amazing, and it is!…

ECHO

Steam Greenlight was not popular, clearly evidenced by the fact it no longer exists. Several games, having gone through the Greenlight process, promised the world, setting themselves up as the killer app to justify its existence. Some of them were even pretty darn good, but nothing ever really hit that “wow” factor that we’ve seen…
