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.

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Trench, an underwater 2.5D shooter developed by Howling Hamster Games. Trench caught my eye because it’s neat visuals and the idea of a shooting game based around a submarine.
