Demon’s Tier+

Demon’s Tier+ is a charming 2D dungeon diving action game created by Diabolical Mind and published by Cowcat. Based on the trailer this game is a self-described “dungeon-RPG rogue like”, and while containing aspects of those genres, I stand behind calling it a 2D dungeon diving action game instead. Let me explain. The story begins…

Indivisible

Indivisible is an example of a game that attempts to revolutionize RPGs, only to be sadly hobbled by a somewhat baffling ignorance of what the drawbacks of each genre it emulates brings to the table. Right away the game is clearly beautiful to behold; mixing heavily stylized and fluid animation, vibrant colour, unique models for…

Ara Fell is…

I have fond memories of an old PC furiously going through scribbled notes to solve the next area in Myst, or figuring…

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

  When the release of Ori and the Blind Forest was almost upon us, there was some hype but little evidence on just what the developer could produce. That title ultimately being viewed in very high regard, including in my review of it, meant that there was no chance that people would be as forgiving…
