Review: Namco Museum for Nintendo Switch

by Nazih Fareson August 4, 2017
If you are into retro gaming, Namco Museum is a compilation series that most of you know since the good old days of the original PlayStation. Since 1995’s first Namco Museum game, pretty much every single console got their own Namco Museum game, so it makes sense to see the Nintendo Switch have its version […]

Review: Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor

by Mazen Abdallahon October 14, 2016
Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor is a strange game. Even now I can’t quite work out what it is: a puzzle game, a narrative title, a visual novel, etc. It has elements of each one, but I would say it’s most of all a game about routine. You play as the eponymous Spaceport Janitor, and […]

It appears No Clip still has somethings in store for us with Zombie Night Terror. This new and very small developer based out of France has partnered with Gambitious Inc to create Zombie […]

Review: N++

by Mazen Abdallahon August 28, 2016
When I was still in college, I didn’t have my trusty gaming PC, and I lived in a cramped dorm room with no TV, so I couldn’t bring my PS2 along. Most of my gaming was done on my roommate’s trusty white PSP slim. It was then that I discovered the magical world of N+. […]


Review: Kingdom: New Lands

by Nazih Fareson August 15, 2016
My oh my! Raw Fury Games’s Kingdom really came a long way, doesn’t it? Started as a simple project by Thomas van den Berg and Marco Bancale, Kingdom was recently nominated for the Excellence in Design award during the 2016 Independent Games Festival, and after a successful launch on PC, the developers announced that an Xbox One version was in the […]
