Orb Farm, an algae-growing aquarium game, is so relaxing

Growing up, I never had guppies or goldfish. Weirdly, I never even bothered to ask my parents for permission even though, in retrospect, they probably would've said yes. (I once had a pet turtle.) But I did get super into freshwater aqua...

Yep, Line Rider is still good as hell

A few days ago, YouTube recommended me some video for Line Rider, a monstrously effective time-waster I haven't thought about in close to a decade. Like most of these automated suggestions, I only gave the video's title a glance before movi...

There's going to be a Clicker Heroes 2

I escaped the clutches of Clicker Heroes once, and I'll do it again. It was my favorite of the time-wasting, dopamine-releasing idle games. It got me real good. Now, a sequel is underway for next year. It's a substantial step up, visually ...

Nintendo pulls plug on fan-made Zelda browser game

Remember that voxel Zelda browser game we told you about? The fan-made tribute crafted without Nintendo's permission? The one all the game websites were talking about? Surely you know where I'm going with this, right? It took just a couple ...
