INDIKA Review – A tragicomic journey that ends too soon
If you’ve played the demo of INDIKA, you probably understand why it was one of my most anticipated releases of the year – a strange, historical narrative game taking place in a bizarre, alternate version of 19th century Russia that presents its dramatic story with a healthy dose of absurd comedy, developer Odd Meter’s odd little project is something that I can only describe as... a genuine breath of fresh air.
Jim's Nightmare: Chapter 1 Review – Has potential, but is still rough around the edges
This time I went into Jim’s Nightmare, a point & click psychological thriller from developer Pumpkiny Games, with cautious optimism – it’s a story about mental illness, crime and inner demons, following the daily routine of Jim, a former criminal who’s trying to start his life anew with a clean slate.
The Thaumaturge Review – An intriguing narrative RPG that blends early 20th century European history with supernatural fiction
The Thaumaturge is a game I’ve had my eye on for a while – created by developer Fool’s Theory, it transports players into a world of turmoil, uncertainty and conflict, mixing a very specific historical period with its own rich lore and fascinating supernatural elements, even reminding me of the illustrious Shadow Hearts series to a certain extent.
Blood West Review – A satisfyingly challenging stealth FPS dripping in style and atmosphere
When I first laid eyes upon developer Hyperstrange’s retro-style FPS Blood West, I thought it’d be another “boomer shooter” type of game, with endless waves of enemies, non-stop action and gameplay reminiscent of old classics like Duke Nukem 3D and Shadow Warrior.
DreadHaunt – Early Access Impressions – A promising idea that could still use some work
Digital Happiness is an indie developer that fans of Indonesian horror will no doubt be familiar with as the team behind the Fatal Frame-inspired DreadOut series.
