Unepic review

Daniel is having a bad day. A very bad day. One minute he was with his friends drinking beer and playing Dungeons & Dragons, (albeit badly), and the next moment, while relieving himself in the toilet, he has been transported from his world to the castle of Harnakon. Groping his way forward using only the […]

Lovely Planet review

Lovely Planet from QuickTequila and TinyBuild Games can best be described as a twitch shooter, but to limit it to such is to do it an injustice.  With a somewhat minimalistic story, it falls on the other components with which to endear itself to you.

Three Fourths Home review

It seems I am going from one extreme to the other in my abundance of recent indie game reviews, with the chaotic, gameplay focused Crimsonland on one end of the spectrum, and this; Three Fourths Home on the other, more narratively intense end. Three Fourths Home is a visual novel, that places you in control […]

Crimsonland review
