Steam Game Festival 2021 February – These are the indie game demos we tried
Naturally, we browsed and browsed until there was nowhere left to browse, and tried our hands at some of the more interesting-looking titles on offer – some of them proved to be just as pleasant as they seemed, while others were… well, disappointing, to say the least. But hey, such is life, you know? Box of chocolates and all that jazz.
Amnesia: Rebirth – A dark, but less memorable descent – Review
Amnesia: Rebirth starts not entirely unlike its predecessor, although the circumstances surrounding it are quite different. Our protagonist, one Anastasie "Tasi" Trianon, suffers a catastrophic plane crash in the middle of the Algerian desert and wakes up in the wreckage realizing that the rest of the crew is nowhere to be found – what’s more, she also has trouble remembering exactly what happened to them.
What Happened – Important message, weak execution – Review
What Happened, a psychological horror game from developer Genius Slackers, touches upon a topic that I feel needs more exposure – it tells the story of a disturbed high school student, Stiles, as he struggles with severe depression and anxiety, highlighting his unstable mental health through a series of a surreal, symbolic experiences.
Hellpoint – In the darkness of space, there is only Dark Souls – Review
If you only know one thing about developer Cradle Games’ sci-fi action-RPG Hellpoint, it’s probably that it’s essentially Dark Souls in space. And honestly, I can’t even argue with that.
Bartlow’s Dread Machine – Tin men to the rescue – Early Access Impressions
When United States president Theodore Roosevelt is kidnapped by mysterious forces, it’s up to you, a stalwart little robot agent, to head out and save him – that’s the basic premise of Bartlow’s Dread Machine, a charming twin-stick shooter that’s just launched via Steam Early Access and is ready to take the mechanical world by storm.

Metamorphosis – Bugs just wanna have fun – ReviewGare – Monday, August 31, 2020 3:41 PM
