Gunscape, from indie developer Blowfish Studios, is a First-Person Shooter (FPS) meets world-building game. It’s an interesting combination much like Reese’s peanut butter meets Hershey’s chocolate to create a tantalizing product. The game evokes classic Nineties FPS gaming like Doom, Wolfenstein, Goldeneye and others but also gives players the abilities to create their own maps… Read More »

Rioters roam the streets scavenging from the weak and the dead. Martial Law has been declared, but assistance is scattered and unorganized. This great city… Read More »

Unravel is a beautiful game that tries hard to tell some epic tale that pushes on feelings, but ends up becoming more unraveled than the game’s protagonist. Unravel is a physics based puzzle game developed by Coldwood Interactive and published by Electronic Arts (EA).  From the start, you are given a description of what you will… Read More »

The creative minds at Telltale Games have invited you to enter a familiar world, with a little twist. Minecraft: Story Mode brings you into the blocky world of creation, monsters, and crafting, but presented in a different way.

Get ready to die. A lot. Self promoted as “a fast paced randomized FPS for the twitch gamer,” by the creator Joe Mirabello, Tower of Guns will likely test your patience and fortitude trying to complete it. You have little time to get acclimated to your surroundings as you enter the tower. A “storyline” is presented in… Read More »

Tabletop games and video games have a shared history. Role-playing elements derive from old pen and paper games of the 1980’s, and the collectable card game design has permeated in video games like the ever popular Hearthstone. Hand of Fate not only takes the design elements of the tabletop experience, but creates that feeling of a personally tailored… Read More »

What do you dream about? This fairly innocuous question is asked among friends, partners, and even medical professionals. The dream state is still a mystery for many of us. What induces nightmares? What causes us to snap awake in a cold sweat through fear? How can we avoid these traumatic episodes? How can we enjoy… Read More »

There is a sort of comedic tragedy when watching low-budget films. Badly written dialogue becomes countless inside jokes between friends, laughing at the hilarious sets, or the plot (or lack thereof) becomes a involved, philosophical discussion about the formulas of filmmaking. The fim has a new appeal, which comes in sharing it the experience in… Read More »
