One of my favorite things to do is read updates from kickstarter games I backed. Unfortunately, I did not have the money to back Octopus City Blues. But I love their updates.
Octopus City does...

I keep circling around Chip's Challenge, and will probably buy it (wish it had the old sprites). But this caught my eye:

Is that a compliment or insult? I could be like Miss Honey or the one that rips kids' ears off. Keep in mind that my sister and I loved Chip's Challenge.

I played Stalker years after release and found them very enjoyable. I think the beginning of the game is the hardest, because it gives you very little in terms of direction. There's also a lot of...

I never tried attacking Cazadores. I always used the Stealthboy from the schoolhouse. The Iron armor is nice, but the brass knuckles are the real find, they can be an acceptable mid-game item for...

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Stacking yet. Stacking is the perfect game for young kids. It's non-violent, pretty funny, and encourages critical thinking. Best of all, each puzzle has three...

The thing about the two previous games was that you could run around accumulating resources until you were more powerful than your problem. The game was designed more like a rogue-like than most...

I finished Full Bore today. It was excellent. I've been trying to figure out why I like it so much, and I think it's because the game is a full offering.
So many 2D games aren't really...
Honestly, early deaths in Transistor frequently gives you a nice little way to force you to change your gameplay. It's really not that hard, but it does expect you to learn/ use its system. If...

Don't be afraid to hire people in Defender's Quest an extra 2 people can make a huge difference in some fights. Also, you can avoid quite a bit of grind by doing the optional fights in sidequests...

More than I can count. I try to distinguish the ways games kick me off:
1. A sale comes along and I get distracted.
Viktor and Torchlight II were put on hold by the Steam sale. I got games I...
Going with an early access game for #4 is a bit esoteric.
9 kinda looks like Advertcity.

I've wondered the same thing more than once, and have a couple guesses. One is that other genres ate their lunch. I think quite a few players enjoyed turtling & base-building, and would turtle...

I've been very pleasantly surprised by Full Bore. It's an open world puzzle game; kind of like metroid without the enemies. The gameplay itself is similar to Steamworld Dig, though less fluid. You...

While I get that pointless nostalgia is certainly a thing, you have to be careful against over-correcting. Sometimes the past was better in certain ways, sometimes it was not. It is certainly...

I wound up finishing the sale at $15 instead of $10. So I overspent but not horrifically so. I got:
Stalker Clear Sky,
Space Station Hope,

I started Child of Light, and joy of joy had to create a uPlay account. I picked an apparently popular name:

Yeah, I'm sorry. Qix is older than I am, and I'm in my 30s. Qix is closer to the moon landing than now.
If you really want to feel old, I teach teenagers and none of the 102 I teach can tell me...

So they did recreate the true adventure game experience!

I've been all over the place in the last two weeks:
Airscape: The Fall of Gravity: An interesting platformer 2D with Mario Galaxy style gravity. I haven't played that much, but it seems solid....

Mark of the Ninja is only $3.75. If you don't have that or Trine for some reason, I highly recommend them.
Orcs Must Die is $2.50; OMD II is 3.75. Both games combine the fun of a fast-paced...

I'd be curious to see what his actual involvement is. Listening to MCA interviews, he's technically on a bunch of projects, but it only sounds like Divinity OS 2 is one that he's deeply involved...

The some of the bundles look pretty good right now. I have my eye on the platformer bundle:
This has Camera Obscura, Out There Somewhere,...

I definitely get that games can change, and so you could and perhaps should give any game bad reviews after you played it for a long time.
Another interesting problem is what happens when you...

To put the games in context, I paid $70 for the set and did not feel cheated when it went down to $10 two years later.
As brief as I can make it. The Geneforge games have excellent writing;...
