https://youtu.be/ihTr-uqeXRM Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Gridberd, a first-person survival horror game by Wareberd. Gridberd is developed using Cryengine 3, which goes a long way to providing the very realistic and well-done visuals that you’ll notice in the trailer and the screenshots.

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Gunnheim

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Gunnheim, a top-down shooter with a strong focus on bringing back the classic fun of local multiplayer experiences. Unfortunately, in the age of internet and minimal face-to-face interaction, couch co-op is not even close to being as popular as it once was. However, I have seen a greater public outcry for local multiplayer recently, and ...

https://youtu.be/D7wQoaUjdug Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Super Star Path. Super Star Path is a modern game that takes on a very retro style. The game is described as a “classic shoot ’em up meets match-3 puzzler, which as we’ve seen with other games such as Galacide, can be a very strong combination. The hectic nature of the shoot ’em ups ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: A Bastard’s Tale

Today’s standout on Greenlight is A Bastard’s Tale. In my childhood, and even still to this day, I spent a lot of time playing the tough as nails platformers for the SNES and Sega Genesis.

In Defense of Easy – Thoughts on Difficulty

Difficulty settings are commonplace in modern games, but it wasn’t always that way. In 1974, Speed Race showed up in arcades. This was one of the very first games (if not the first game) to include difficulty settings. Since then, a large majority of video games have included difficulty options, and this has created something of a rift between gamers with different tastes. I ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Grey Cubes

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is shining on Grey Cubes. Grey Cubes is an interesting 3D take on a traditional brick-breaker game, with a basis on providing real-time physics as well as gameplay that takes place in three dimensions, rather than the typical two. My interest in the game is driven by my love of classic arcade titles. Block breaking games were ...
