N.E.R.O. (Nothing Ever Remains Obscure) – REVIEW

Unless you're made of stone, this story should melt your heart.

For some, butterflies are symbolic of change and resurrection. Jellyfish in dreams may represent healing of painful memories, and discovering the light within yourself. N.E.R.O. is a more emotional journey than a standard video game experience. Instead of road signs and highway markers, figurative symbols and deeper meanings guide you along ...

I'm going to take this card.. and beat you with it ... for reals.

FORCED Showdown is the result of a team of people who surely played a lot of CCGs and MOBAs and decided “We can do all of this in one compelling single player package”. Not quite the two genres I would pick to stand next to each in any way. In this ...

Good Robot – REVIEW

Good things come in small packages, this can be true with good robots as well.

Sometimes a developer can do more in 88 megabytes than others do with 8 gigabytes. Good Robot combines 2D twin-stick shooting with rogue-lite elements and delivers blocks of entertainment in every bit. Copious weapon and headgear options glamorize the typical twin shooter combat, but there is also enough parody throughout to make even jaded gamers crack a smile. Good ...
