I enjoy playing pretty much any type of game out there. My passion lies in finding the gems of the indie gaming world. When I'm not playing games, I'm programming them, at the gym, or tending to my small army of cats. Writing has always been a part of my life and I'm grateful for the opportunity to get my content out there for people to see.

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Shape of the World

download

Today’s Greenlight Spotlight is on Shape of the World, a first-person exploration game with procedurally-generated environments that grow around you. First off, the game’s beauty really drew me in. While the art style presents no realism, it fills my mind with sensations of relaxation and peace. This would be a perfect example of a game that I would love to ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Estoc

download (1)

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is focusing on Estoc, a simplistic multiplayer sword-fighting game. Often in games, simple mechanics lead to boring and repetitive gameplay, which in turn repels potential players. Estoc features such simple mechanics that I worry it won’t have enough lasting potential to draw a large community. However, as well as Nidhogg did (which is a very similar game), ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Tiki Galore

download

Today’s Greenlight Spotlight is on Tiki Galore. Tiki Galore is an online multiplayer arena in which players control a Tiki Warrior with an unusual thirst to dominate his or her opponents. Battle your friends in free-for-all or team battles which take place in various immersive tropical levels. To be honest, the reason I chose to spotlight the game was because ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Formula Fusion

442053511_preview_new_5

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Formula Fusion, an action racing game that combines the best from Wipeout and F Zero in order to create a game that reinvents the arcade racing genre. Being a huge fan of F Zero, I was excited to see this game pop up on Greenlight. Racing through futuristic environments at ridiculous speeds is something that ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Okhlos

screen1

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Okhlos, a unique take on the action-roguelike genre. In Okhlos, you take control of an angry mob of ancient Greek citizens. First of all, it is most likely pretty obvious as to why this game was chosen for the spotlight. Controlling an entire angry mob? Come on, that sounds like one of the most intense ...

Preview: Starfall Tactics is the Next Big Space RTS

download

“Create a custom space fleet, lead it into battle and fight for control of the galaxy!” This is the sentence that I first read about Starfall Tactics, and it immediately led to me wanting to know more about the game. Space has always been a fascination of mine, and from space sims to RTS games such as Homeworld, I’ve lost ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Sentinels

download (1)

Today’s standout on Greenlight is Sentinels. Sentinels is a combination of elements of tower defense and the skills involved in first-person shooters. While games such as Toy Soldiers have taken similar mechanics and implemented them successfully in the past, it is still nice to see another game trying to put a spin on the tower defense genre. For me, tower ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Viridi

download

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on a rather unorthodox game. Rather than being a game in a traditional sense, Viridi is more of a simulation and a tool to help unwind from a long and difficult day. It is the sort of game that you pick up when you’re having your morning tea on a Sunday morning. A game that you ...

Preview: Ymir Combines 4X Strategy With City-Building

download

  City-building games were a staple of my youth. From games like Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom to Zeus to Caesar 3, I spent hundreds of hours building cities and watching them fail during my youth. The city-builders of today have unfortunately not had that same effect on me, and left me with no desire to revisit them once ...
