Longing for more Castlevania? Chasm could be our best bet

In recent months, I've lost track of Chasm. I was on-board with the action-platform game when it was first coming through Kickstarter but, wow, that was actually back in 2013. Making games, even simple ones, takes lots of time. Making metro...   read

Battle Chef Brigade: two tastes tasting great together

Sometimes we joke about genre blending, as if some games are designed by shuffling a deck of cards with mechanics written on them and then choosing two at random. At first glance, Battle Chef Brigade looks like it could have been a result o...   read
