We Happy Few: Early Access impressions

Aug 9, 2016

Game code provided by PR When We Happy Few was announced with its provocative, intriguing trailer, gamers’ imaginations were enthralled. With an undeniable hint of Bioshock and 1984, the game’s debut displayed Compulsion Games’ retro-futuristic vision of a world rife with government-sanctioned self-deception. With the game’s recent Early Access release,...

Worms W.M.D: hands-on

Worms W.M.D: hands-on

Jul 27, 2016

Worms is a franchise that I hold quite dear, as it reminds me of my childhood playing Worms Armageddon on the N64 with my friends. Passing around the controller as we each took turns at trying to blow each other to smithereens, mostly with Holy Hand Grenades. And although I’ve drifted away from the multiplayer shenanigans, the campaign in Armageddon was also...

Apr 6, 2016

Game code provided by PR. Big Ant Studios are better known for their sports games with a notable catalogue that consists of cricket, rugby, an assortment of racing, and even a lacrosse game; so you’d be forgiven for being shocked to learn that they were releasing a 3D action-adventure featuring a horde of angry mobster clowns. That’s just what...

Kôna: Day One: Hands-On

Kôna: Day One: Hands-On

Feb 15, 2016

Kôna: Day One is an interesting game; it’s an Early Access (Games in Development) title on GOG (which is curated, unlike Steam!), it’s narrative heavy, it’s a bit of a survival game, and I like what I’ve played so far. I’m not anti-survival game per se, but I do find that they don’t generally hold my attention – especially when in Early...
