WarriOrb – Are you ball enough for the challenge? – ReviewSo, first things first. WarriOrb is a platformer that has you take on the role of a demon trapped in an orb-like body – and indeed, this is no coincidence at all, as the game’s puzzles and multitude of challenging obstacle courses demand that you jump and hop around the place like a sentient, out-of-control basketball.

Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth – Early Access ImpressionsTeam Ladybug’s project has, at long last, launched via Steam Early Access, affectionately mixing the setting and characters of the famed Lodoss War franchise with stylish Metroidvania action and gorgeous pixel art.

There Is No Tomorrow – First impressionsImagine a game with plenty of potential and some decent ideas packed into it. Now imagine that this same game is also very much capable of driving me up the wall and making my brain boil like the soup I just left on the stove. Done? Good.

DreadOut 2 – Undercooked but fun – ReviewMuch like the first installment, DreadOut 2 stars Indonesian teen Linda Melinda, a girl with a special affinity for the supernatural – and if you don’t remember what happened to her in the original game, don’t worry, the sequel has a special “The Story So Far”-type video to get you up to speed.

LUNA The Shadow Dust – More style than substance – ReviewYou almost immediately take control of two protagonists: a boy hoping to make it to the top of a massive tower, and an adorably rotund soccer ball of a cat that tags along for the ride and lends a helping paw whenever it’s necessary.

Moons of Madness – “Mars sucks” – ReviewThe overall premise of being stranded on a Mars base and having to tackle Lovecraftian horrors is nothing if not promising – it’s positively brimming with potential waiting to be tapped.

Minoria – The bad kind of déja vu – ReviewMinoria stars two agents of the Church – Sister Semilla and her partner Fran – on a mission to stop the witches from conducting a heretical ceremony, but frankly, if you’re coming to this game primarily for the plot, you might as well turn around now.

Eldervale – An indie take on oldschool survival horror – ReviewRight as one boots up Eldervale, the influences of early Silent Hill installments can immediately be felt: the player is thrust into a multi-storey building and has to rely on their trusty map to navigate the place, look for key items, solve mind-bending puzzles and occasionally bash in the head of an undead nurse or two with a steel pipe, although that last bit is somewhat optional.
