I can think of very few games where you play as a zombie, and even less where you’re a zombie chef. This is the plot of Dungeon Munchies, though, where the game starts you as a newly-reanimated zombie who has a hunger for food. Exploring a bit further introduces you to…

An auto-runner? In 2019? I’m starting to think this mechanic is more common than I realized. Anyway, ever played a Super Mario Bros. game before? Retroid’s Wunderling is a parody of the franchise where the hero is an anthropomorphic carrot and the Bowser is a Wicked Witch who “adopted” the princess.…

Space shooters. They’re some of the earliest forms of video games, and while the genre’s grown and evolved a whole lot since Asteroids and Galaga, there’s always been a simplistic charm to them. No matter what kind of bells and whistles a developer’s thrown on to their space shooter, you’re still…

My first VR game of the convention, Telefrag is a 1v1 first person shooter where you take on opponents in floating gladiatorial arenas. Each player gets two guns, which can not only shoot people, but also teleport from place to place in the arena. There’s a number of surfaces with…

Some people have that one genre they just keep coming back to. Some people love precision platformers, some love JRPGs, some love souls/borne style games, I like retro-style roguelikes. They’re everywhere, yes, you can’t throw a stone in the steam store without hitting 20 of them, but the genre…

An autorunner? In 2019? For PC and Switch? No, you’re not imagining things, Joggernauts puts a fun new twist on what would otherwise be a free game on the play store by adding multiplayer mechanics. While the game does have a singleplayer mode, the game gets increasingly more chaotic when…
