Lovecraft’s Untold Stories Demo Review

1247
I’ll be honest: I know nothing about the works of H.P. Lovecraft. I know he built a world of fantasy-horror stories, but that’s as much as I can confidently say. Luckily for newbies like me, Lovecraft’s Untold Stories seem to be just that: untold stories. The main character, a detective by the name of John Murphy, doesn’t return any…

Zero Ranger Preview: Become Something More

673
Hordes of enemies to shoot, check. Powerups that augment the gameplay in fun ways, check. Bosses that will take several tries to master, check. Zero Ranger has all the staples of the genre that inspired it. This is a true indie game, and it definitely deserves the place it’s scrolling toward in the arcade SHMUP wall of fame. Zero…

I Fell From Grace Review: Poetic Point and Click Dystopia

1603
I fell from Grace is one of the strangest games I’ve had the pleasure of playing in recent times. It’s such a nontraditional mix of elements that comes together to create a unique gaming experience. You assume the role of Henry, a worn down and low paid medical researcher whose wife, the titular Grace, is terminally ill. Just in…

Peridium Review: Paranoid Atmospheric Horror at its finest

1980
Game: Peridium Developer: Powerhoof Platform: PC If you spliced the point-and-click mechanics of Escape from Monkey Island and the paranoid, gory horror of John Carpenter’s seminal masterpiece The Thing, you’d end up somewhere close to Peridium. Created as part of AdventureJam 2017 by Powerhoof, this short but atmospherically grisly point and click adventure is worth a play. You assume…
