Have You Played… King of Dragon Pass?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. King of Dragon Pass looks like it has been drawn by the illustrator of 1970s books for pre-teens. That is wonderful in its own way, but much of the joy comes not from the wispy beards of your clansfolk but from the insightful…

King Of Dragon Pass Arrives Expanded On Steam

"Many games claim to offer choice, but railroad you into making the same ones always," we told you revisiting King of Dragon Pass [official site] last year, "or offer a simplistic binary option, tethered to game-oriented notions of 'pick a reward', monochrome extremes of kitten-petting-versus-baby-eating morality, or both ... It’s a rare game that captures the complexities of leadership without getting bogged down." The tribe-leading…

Foot-To-Landmine: FootLOL – Epic Fail League

If I had just the right test tube and one of Mr Bunsen's Bestest Burners, I reckon I could scientifically prove that FootLOL: Epic Fail League is the worst title since Henry VIII appointed a young cleric as his Royal Glans Grater, purely to irritate the delicate sensibilities of Pope Clement VII. As it is, all I have is a broken slide rule and a…
