ABOUT MOUNT & BLADE

When the world falls into chaos, anyone can rise to glory if they are brave and skilled enough. You can be a fierce mercenary, selling your sword to anyone with gold in his purse. You can command your own army and drive them to the final victory. You can even rise to become a liege lord, sworn to protect your subjects and lands. Your destiny awaits, and you are free to choose it with your blade! Mount & Blade combines the genres of Strategy and Action RPG. Set in the fictional continent of Calradia, the games feature a rich and detailed singleplayer experience which allows players to develop their own character and story in a sandbox campaign. There is also a multiplayer element which lets players test their combat skills and tactical abilities against opponents from all around the world in massive, epic battles. The gameplay focuses on different aspects of medieval combat and warfare, and features a deep and intuitive directional combat system which is easy to learn, but difficult to master.

  • Next Up Hero Early Access Review

    Although Next Up Hero is only entering early-access, it looks to have a promising future ahead of it. The gameplay may feel awkward with a keyboard and mouse, but using a third-party controller or the addition of cursor based aim/shooting would remedy that quickly. As it sits, the game does not feel as impossibly difficult as the developers want it to feel, but it has tons of potential to become an extremely challenging game. The aesthetics of the game are on point, and the RPG feel was done perfectly with enough twists to make it feel unique. With a strong development team, and plenty of community feedback, Next Up Hero has the potential to become a top indie game for 2018 upon its final release.

  • Hello Neighbor Review

    Rather than try and make a quick buck out of cheap thrills, Dynamic Pixels and tinyBuild took the popular trope of hide-and-seek horror and twisted it into something new and creative.  There is a great game buried here, as long as the development studio fixes the problems currently plaguing Hello Neighbor...  And if they can manage to really polish it, then the horror genre has much innovation to offer.

    Controls are often not as responsive as you’d hope, and evidence of “flat gaming” roots abounds, but Fallout 4 VR brought the entirety of the massive, content-rich adventure, with hundreds of hours of gameplay, to VR, and it did so with little in the way of graphical compromise. No other virtual reality title is as technically advanced, and almost none offer the value for money found here, either. Bethesda has set the standard for future AAA VR.

    Genetic Disaster is a great action-packed multiplayer that generates enough maps and monsters to keep you and your friends entertained as you accidentally kill each other. You can play as single player, but with its strategic depth the real fun comes from players battling it out.

  • TARTARUS Review

    TARTARUS is a unique concept in that it makes computer puzzles come alive with realistic representations, where most titles try to make abstract mini games out of “hacking.” The plot and overall horror atmosphere don’t come together, however. Overall, this is a solid attempt at making light programming puzzles interesting, but more work needs to be done in this area before we see a title that is truly free of tedium.
