Review: The Magic Circle: Gold Edition

by Nazih Fareson June 30, 2016
When you think about Independent games, you think about little original titles full of imagination, and we are sometimes are left with gems of creativity, or extraterrestrial mutants that nobody understands where they came from (like Keyboard Drumset Fucking Werewolf). The Magic Circle bet on the same concept of originality, but is it good, or just plain […]

Review: Party Hard

by Nazih Fareson April 27, 2016
Who hasn’t had the guilty crazy dream of killing his noisy neighbors?

Well a bloody killing spree, with a hint of stealth and some 8-bit graphics. Party […]

Review: Samorost 3

by Mazen Abdallahon April 25, 2016
If you don’t know Amanita Software, you don’t know indie games that well. They’re one of the hardest-working studios in indie games. And they’ve made some remarkable point-and-click adventure games. Their trademark is adorable, hand-crafted worlds with plucky protagonists and no dialogue whatsoever. The thing about Amanita’s games is, despite being really cutesy and placid, […]

Review: Super Galaxy Squadron EX

by Luciano Rahalon March 7, 2016
If you are part of a Triple A program, this game is not for you. For everyone else, it is safe to proceed. Where to begin? I am exhausted just thinking about this game. Nonstop, fast paced, insanely insane game. The developers were clearly on speed when designing Super Galaxy Squadron EX. Let’s rewind a little […]

Review: Overfall

by Luciano Rahalon February 29, 2016
Since the Potato Salad shenanigans, I became a big fan of Kickstarter. Literally anybody and everybody with any idea big or small, will always end up getting funded. They might not reach their goal, but it will still grab the attention of your average Joe. This was the first time I heard of Overfall. With […]

Do Game Developers Have an Ethical Responsibility to Players?

by Mazen Abdallahon February 17, 2014
Most people on social media have heard about the rage-inducing mobile game Flappy Birds and the developer’s surprising decision to take it down. For those of you that don’t know, Flappy Birds was a ridiculously simple phone game where you had to guide a little bird through openings in the Super Mario Bros pipes. And […]

The Steam Machines have been announced! Rejoice! Gabe Newel came down from the mountain with his tablets announcing a wide range of hardware running SteamOS. For a few hundred dollars (or 6000, depending on your needs), you can enjoy PC gaming in your living room! Except of course, you can’t play that many games. As […]

Four Reasons Indies Can’t Save the PlayStation Vita

by Mazen Abdallahon October 11, 2013
Oh look, another article on why the PlayStation Vita failed. Time to beat the dead horse some more, eh? In this case, that’s a double entendre, because the PlayStation Vita is about as successful as a dead horse in the portable race. My article is going after a more specific issue, which relates more to my interests […]
