The Little Acre Review

The Little Acre is appropriately named because it is short and has very few areas to explore. The story and plot are really interesting and the animations make you fall in love with the characters and world. The fairytale elements keep you smiling and happy the entire time you’re playing, but the smiles are cut way too short by the length of the game. You fall in love with the story and become so attached that it’s a huge letdown when it ends so abruptly.

Maize Review

The goal of Maize is simply to make you laugh. It is refreshingly hilarious and provides a randomly unique movie-quality storyline that you can’t get anywhere else. If you need a break from life, or from other serious games, this is just the laugh that you need. You will enter a world of idiots, where you reign supreme.

Chilie Review

The story is goofy and enjoyable for a young one, but the gameplay in between is far too frustrating and uncontrolled to provide any semblance of a meaningful challenge such a title should offer. Perhaps a future update will help set matters straight, but until then, we can always look forward to whatever Beckoning Cat releases next.

The Revenge of Johnny Bonasera Review

If you’ve ever suffered petty cruelty at the hands of someone in a position of power and fantasized about a disproportionately violent response, The Revenge of Johnny Bonasera will give you the chance to live out that dream in video game form.

Hello Neighbor Pre-Alpha

A stealth-based experience that is as humorous as it anchors itself on a critical observation of America's suburban life. It's a satirical commentary of daily living, exaggerated to highlight our oddity as average human beings, on top of creating, of course, playable mechanics. In short, an experience for people like you and me, one we can all relate to, whether we might be the shady type, the law-abiding citizen, or the simply nosy.

Frog Climbers Review

Frog Climbers is a very simple game, but it's all you need for a social night of fun with friends. Its simplistic design and intuitive controls make for a solid Couch Co-Op experience and one that is tailor-made to frustrate and beat the living poop out of the fine folks you, all so kindly, invited over.

Payday 2 Proves that all games need John Cleese

One of my main critiques, of every video game I’ve played since I started my ESO habit, is a lack of John Cleese. There’s also other, smaller things, like new difficulty variety, masks, possibly guns, and likely a new level. But really, the main crux of this update is the sorely needed addition of John Cleese.

Straimium Immortaly Review

Straimium Immortaly gives players yet another side-scrolling adventure that does all of the classical tropes you might expect, but with a new face, some funky twists, and some enhanced tactics toward making the most of a rogue-lite player's inclination toward difficulty.

Powargrid Review

Powagrid succeeds in making you think you have a chance; it pulls you pack into missions even after you’ve been blown to smithereens more times than you care to count. This is what you want in a game: a sense of “I’m going to win this time; I think I’ve got it.”

Wuppo Review

Gameplay is enjoyable, controls are tight and responsive, characters are alive and full of personality, and the soundtrack is more than a pleasure to listen to on a regular basis. Wuppo is my future nostalgia.

Calm Down, Stalin Review

Calm Down, Stalin puts players in touch with history by allowing them to experience the sweaty-palmed, gut-wrenching stress of being a despotic ruler of a country on the brink of war. That you have the unfortunate handicap of only being able to control one clumsy, flailing arm at a time adds to the fun.

Talent Not Included Review

If you love the genre, then Talent Not Included will make a worthwhile addition to your Steam library. The script is humorous, and the environment and atmosphere blend to create a charming, appealing title; the difficulty level is substantial enough to be challenging, even for experienced platformer fans, without being utterly overwhelming to those who rarely indulge in the genre.

Worms W.M.D Review

Worms W.M.D has ruined my week. Responsibilities like mowing the lawn, getting some reports done for work, and you know, writing this review. But all of those were late. Why? Well, I suppose the reason is a very good one… I could not stop playing it.

Cat President ~A More Purrfect Union~ Review

All in all, Cat President: A More Purrrfect Union is best approached as a silly and mindless guilty pleasure that shouldn’t be taken too seriously. Unless you’re really into cats.

Genius Greedy Mouse Review

An addictively enjoyable puzzle game. The graphics will appeal to claymation fans, and the puzzles offer a nice challenge without being rage-inducingly frustrating.

Recipes for Gamers Who Don't Live with Their Moms

You have to stop and eat eventually. Here's how to cook your own grub, without digging into precious game time any more than is absolutely necessary.

Karma Miwa Review

It’s only significant flaw is the bug that causes the game to crash repeatedly.

Bear With Me Review

Bear With Me isn’t a stand-out example of a Point-&-Click adventure, but the fact that it’s episodic makes me hope that some of the bugs and complications in this first chapter are ironed out in later additions. The dark humor and Noir vibe of the game are a great contrast to the nostalgia of playing through a child’s imaginary adventure, and it reminded me of Among the Sleep and Fran Bow with all the toys, puzzles, and make-believe.

Super Button Soccer Interview

Super Button Soccer is a fast paced action/strategy game where you compete against human or CPU players in exciting online and offline soccer matches, collect cards and build your ultimate fantasy team!

Human: Fall Flat Review

this is one of the best puzzlers I’ve seen in a LONG time, and easily since the Portal games. HFF is completely different in every single way, though. But you will laugh out loud, you will potentially cry, and you will have an amazing time.
