Solbrain Knight of Darkness steals artwork, music, and more

[Header courtesy of coocoon on DeviantArt] People should be (sadly) familiar with what an asset-flip game is by now. It's where a (typically) crappy developer rips graphics, artwork, game mechanics, or music from another source and fails to...   read

Review: Okhlos

If there's a game concept I'd like to see become prevalent, it's the one where you amass an army of little dudes to wail on much-bigger monsters. Pikmin. Overlord. Little King's Story. Only those three readily come to mind, and while my mem...   read

Review: Kentucky Route Zero Act IV

If the movie Inside Out taught us that sadness is a necessary and complex emotion, Kentucky Route Zero is that idea’s logical endpoint. The three acts released up to this point have been sublime, presenting a world and characters mire...   read

Review: Death Road to Canada

Execution is everything. We've seen lots of zombie survival games, and plenty of experiences that build on the classic Oregon Trail formula with one gimmick or another. Heck, there have even been titles that combine the two. But there is on...   read

Review: Epistory - Typing Chronicles

It's not often a game forces the player to learn a new control scheme. The dual-stick setup of most modern controllers and the WASD keyboard layout are established as as a standard at this point, so a game needs a very good reason to stray ...   read
