Another roguelike? Oh, go on then.   Truth be told, I’ve been nursing most roguelikes and roguelites recently. Not because I’ve got this massive unique stash of them or anything, but because I truly think the hype for them has died down, and now we’ve reached this unbelievably tedious…

How is it that Bioshock doesn’t get ripped off mercilessly?   System Shock is one thing, but Bioshock has had the privilege of aging more gracefully, along with having a visual aesthetic and world that’s ripe for inspiration and tribute, and not just the infamous twist. Maybe it’s the…

Man, do I miss seeing sh’m’ups release frequently.   The sh’m’up arcade scene was always worth its weight in gold.

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…

The world, destroyed. Twenty years later, you wake up on an alien planet with your co-pilot missing. You need answers, and the only way you’re gonna get them is some good-old fashioned 2D metroidvania. I can’t completely comment on the level design, because in order to create the demo…
