- VA-11 Hall-A Review (PC)VA-11 Hall-A puts you in the shoes of a young female bartender in a cyberpunk world where AI controlled prostitute robots and talking dogs exist and frequent your place of business discussing everything from world events to whether assassination is a hard day job.
This fascinating and frankly completely one of a kind creation from Ghost Time Games, is a game that presents you with a world, a character and a story to reel you in with its initially adorable demeanour and gradually darker and thought-provoking undertones. Jettomero: Hero of The Universe, features a giant, indestructible and extremely friendly robot who is unsure of its purpose in the universe. A delightful and refreshing game in its well-executed simplicity.
This charming stealth action game from indie developers, iFun4all, is an amusing and well-executed concept. Serial Cleaner puts you in the shoes of a man whose job is to clean up crime scenes without the police seeing him. Seems simple enough, but the game quickly reveals itself to have some layers of complexity that aren’t initially apparent. The game appears to be based in the 80s and the premise takes a great deal of influence from Pulp Fiction. A charming title with a lot to offer fans of the wider stealth genre.
Indie developer, Monomi Park, has delivered a wonderful creation to the gaming world. Slime Rancher emerged from Early Access at the start of August and is a well crafted, utterly adorable game. The combination of farming and exploration in an alien, but light-hearted setting produces a fantastic experience that presents the player with something relaxing and intriguing.
This stylish third person martial arts game from Sloclap, published by Devolver Digital, is a very impressive first entry for this indie studio. Absolver features complex and strategic combat teamed with a semi open world PvE storyline to accompany its primary PvP focus, which leaves you with a game that feels one of a kind. Certainly not a title to be enjoyed by everyone as its blend of genres makes for an experience that is challenging and competitive.
QUByte Interactive present the player with a 2D retro style beat ‘em up. Featuring a variety of playable characters and enemies 99Vidas endeavours to provide an exciting side scrolling fighting game with a basic story and fun gameplay. It almost succeeds on all fronts, ultimately producing an experience that is essentially alright, but lacking in anything that really makes it stand out from other games in it’s genre. Nothing special and nothing that makes it feel truly memorable.
This intriguing puzzle experience from creative content producer Investigate North, provides a beautiful world to wander through with a potentially engaging story. Aporia: Beyond the Valley is an interesting concept that endeavours to blend story telling and low interaction gameplay with limited success. A gorgeous looking game that seems to feel like it falls short on it’s goal, seeming undefined and unpolished in many areas.
Taking on the challenge of creating an old school RPG, Indie developer Event Horizon are developing their first Steam release, Tower of Time, in Early Access. With a blend of well crafted story telling and tactical, real time combat this is a game that promises a beautiful experience with something for those players who love the older style of RPG as well as players who may be more used to newer methods of tackling combat and general gameplay. Despite it’s currently rough edges, Tower of Time feels quite different to more recent releases in it’s genre and offers something special.
The delights of this charming action brawler created by indie developer Tomatotrap are many in number. Plasma Puncher is simple to understand and difficult to get good at, offering a fun and light-hearted experience that still contains challenge. An adorable looking game with fast flowing and smooth gameplay that makes it look and feel very much worth it’s very reasonable asking price.
Dig or Die has been in Early Access for some time. However, developer Gaddy Games have produced a game that contains crafting, tower defence and horde mode elements, combining them together to create an engaging experience with an intriguing progression system and the option to experience the game in multiplayer. An enjoyable title under a reasonable price tag that certainly shows promise as it continues to move through development.
The creators of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Torn Banner Studios have snuck out a new game with seemingly very little publicity or fanfare. Building off the same premise and combat basis as Chivalry, Mirage: Arcane Warfare offers the player a game full of colour and energy with a variety of classes and a set of fun magic abilities in a fast paced multiplayer environment.
