Warpips adds some meta-tension to the usual tug-of-war game

There came a point in Warpips where I was going into battles that I knew I was underprepared for. This game is, at its most core level, about managing limited funds and capacity to field an army that can defeat your opponent's. And in its c...

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum falls back to 2022

I'm not sure how much I'm into the idea of a Gollum video game, particularly since the first pre-alpha shots came out, but my stance could change with time. The Lord of the Rings: Gollum isn't launching this year, after all – it's now...

Review: Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

Thinking about stealth, a common image the mind conjures is that of a lone wolf slinking through the shadows and taking out threats one by one. Solid Snake and Sam Fisher generally work alone. Players control one man using skill and cunning...

For a passion project, State of Mind feels oddly lifeless

The best part of my State of Mind demo was talking to Martin Ganteföhr, the game's director. He single-handedly convinced me that State of Mind needed to exist -- not because the game was any good (it isn't). Rather, Gan...

 
 
The Long Journey Home photo

The Long Journey Home makes a good first impression

Now this is intriguing. Daedalic Entertainment West is trying its hand at space adventuring with The Long Journey Home, an upcoming game inspired by Starflight and Star Control II that has players fighting the odds to get back to Earth aft...

 
 
Blackguards photo

Brutal tactical RPG Blackguards heading to PS4 and Xbox One

I'll admit: I found Blackguards to be more frustrating than fun. Maybe I've grown soft in my old age. There still must be an audience out there for extra difficult tactical role-playing games, and for those people, there is Blackguards. Soo...

 
 
Blackguards 2 review photo

Review: Blackguards 2

A few weeks ago, I called Blackguards 2 "deep, unfriendly, and buggy." I had put several hours into the tactical role-playing game, but hadn't seen enough of the story to comfortably put out a review. Fast forward to today, and my original ...

 
 
 
Blackguards 2 photo

Blackguards 2 is deep, unfriendly, and buggy

Last year Patrick reviewed PC strategy role-playing game Blackguards, and he loved it. Blackguards 2 is out on Steam today. I have put about a dozen hours into the sequel, but I am not even close to the point where I can comfortably re...

 
 
1954 Alcatraz photo

Here's some new screenshots for 1954: Alcatraz

Alcatraz -- has there been a more infamous prison? Immortalized in movies from the likes of Point Break to The Rock, the Bay Area's notorious penitentiary hasn't featured in too many games, so it's exciting to see screenshots of Daedalic En...

Learning to be bad with Blackguards

If you've ever wanted to tear across a fantasy realm with a roving band of criminal misfits, you might be able to live out your dream in Daedalic's tactical role-playing game, Blackguards. You might recall that I wasn't particularly sold on...

The blackguards are revealed

Daedalic's evil RPG Blackguards sounds like a bit of all right, with tactical combat and less than nice protagonists. Now the German developer is finally ready to spill the beans on exactly what's up with these unpleasant folk.  There'...

 
 
Memoria review photo

Review: The Dark Eye: Memoria

Daedalic Entertainment, prolific crafter of many a point-and-click adventure, has returned to the world of Aventuria, continuing the yarn spun in last year's Chains of Satinav, a gorgeous, but slightly uneven game with that didn't quite liv...

Trailer for mythic adventure game Memoria looks gorgeous

Memoria looks beautiful so it makes sense it comes from Daedalic Entertainment. Its recently released point-click adventure The Night of the Rabbit was absolutely beautiful and, according to our resident adventure game aficionado Fraser Br...

Review: The Night of the Rabbit

I hated and loved in equal measure the end of the summer holidays as a child. My impending return to gloomy classrooms, smudged jotters, and uncomfortable uniforms only made me take advantage of my final days of freedom all the more. I lame...

The Night of the Rabbit Q&A with Matt Kempke

GOG.com recently posted a ruddy great big Q&A with The Night of the Rabbit lead designer Matt Kempke, where he revealed the inspiration behind Daedalic's newest adventure game and his design philosophy.  One of the things that stru...

The Night of the Rabbit trailer reveals plenty

After playing a wee bit last week, I'm pretty excited about Daedalic's The Night of the Rabbit, and even more so after watching the new trailer. I only got to solve puzzles and cast spells in the first sixth of the adventure game, mainly i...

An afternoon with Daedalic's The Night of the Rabbit

There're few things quite as enjoyable as spending a rainy afternoon indoors, playing a fantastical adventure game. I recently got my grubby mitts on a preview code for prolific adventure game studio Daedalic's upcoming magical romp, The Ni...

 
 
Goodbye Deponia photo

Bid farewell to Deponia

Cheerio, you sexy adventure game. Deponia's pretty groovy, just ask our (presumably) gun-toting Texan, Mr. Pinsof, who's been enjoying the series quite a bit. But all good things must come to an end, and with Goodbye Deponia we must bi...

Hang out with drug addicts and murderers in Blackguards

Daedalic's new adventure game, Memoria, looks gorgeous

Indie adventure developer Daedalic is returning to Aventuria, the setting of last year's sumptuous, yet sometimes frustrating The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav, with Memoria. If it's anything like the previous installment, it promises to...
