Announced back in October by Shrouded Isle and Moon Hunters studio Kitfox, it's about smoochin' on swords. Part hack and slash action-RPG, part dating sim, it features a variety of weapons that transform into an equally diverse suite of suitors. There's men…

How Six Ages and King of Dragon Pass explore the politics of myth

Conduct Mayoral Sacrificial Duties In The Shrouded Isle

I'm not sure what's going on in The Shrouded Isle [official site] but that's why I'm so intrigued. Just look at it. What's that all about? According to Steam, you take up the role of mayor of a seaside village. Sounds friendly enough. I wonder what kind of duties I'll have there -- oh, wait.

Make Your Own Myth: Moon Hunters

There was a time when I thought Puzzle Quest and the like formed a signpost pointing to a bright future, in which themes and genres would become the bricks in a huge architectural toy chest.
