The Waylanders – Honey, I broke the game – Early Access Impressions
The Waylanders, developed by Gato Studio, is a party-based RPG with an ambitious mission, to say the least. According to its Steam store page, it’s a project that the supposed veterans of the Dragon Age and Mass Effect franchises have worked on, and a game that very much tries to live up to that illustrious legacy. Needless to say, this carries with itself a certain set of expectations...
WarriOrb – Are you ball enough for the challenge? – Review
So, first things first.
