Puzzle Game PrinceNapped Arrives On iOS

by Todd Blackon December 2, 2017
One of the beautiful things about video games is that they can be used to twist the stereotypes our culture is sometimes fond of. Take for example the numerous tales of princes saving “damsels in distress.” Well, now there’s a game where the script is flipped, and it’s the prince who needs saving. This is […]

The Sexy Brutale (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon May 10, 2017
The premise of The Sexy Brutale isn’t exactly clear from the name. It even takes a little bit of time for the game to explain exactly what it going on and what you will be doing. It turns out that the host of a mansion masquerade ball is missing and the staff are brutally murdering […]

Metrico+ (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon March 16, 2017
From the very first instance of starting up Metrico, it is clear that it is a very minimalist experience. The visuals are sparse, the controls simplified, and the gameplay rather basic. Even the entire premise of the title is minimal, with you being charged with manipulating the world to overcome obstacles using your own movement […]

Nebulous (Xbox One) Review

by Nathan Gibsonon January 8, 2017
One of the most popular type of indie titles are puzzle games. Perhaps it is because of the fact that they are not considered mainstream enough for AAA developers to bother with and that they are rarely considered value for money as full retail releases. Whatever the case, the likes of the ID@Xbox program have […]

by Nathan Gibsonon September 28, 2016
