Graveyard Keeper

To be honest, when I first saw Graveyard Keeper announced, my reaction was one with a shrug and a dismissive tone. I had most recently played Stardew Valley and I believed that Graveyard Keeper was just trying to ride the successful pixel art train at the moment. I let it fall into my backlog of…

Skater XL

Skater XL is one of the many new contenders aiming to revitalize the skating genre to its former glory. Is it able to pull off the victory or does it fail harder than my bails in the video footage? Skater XL is a simulation skateboarding game focused on the more realistic aspects of the hobby…

Something about the graceful ballet of wooden behemoths brimming with cannons trying to drive each other to the briny depths always gets my motor running… or sails unfurled, in this case. Abandon Ship does a lot…

Noita

I have died about a hundred times over the last week. I have been blown up, shot, drowned, burned, frozen, and taken more than one acid bath. I have been crushed by falling debris, electrocuted, and had my own wand backfire and spread my guts across the wall like a Pollock painting. Noita is a…
