Vambrace: Cold Soul Review

A relentless roguelite with a solid foundation. Beautiful but grindy, it lacks a complex story, deep characters, and emotional impact.

Risk of Rain 2 Early Access Review

If you’re into roguelikes, bullet-hell, or third-person shooter games, this is a can’t-miss title. Risk of Rain 2 has just as much style as it does mechanical polish.

Infected Shelter Early Access Review

Newcomers to the roguelite genre will certainly find some fun in Infected Shelter but I am not confident that experienced roguelite players will find much new or exciting with this title.

Genesis: Alpha One Preview

Genesis Alpha One is downright fun. I have found myself in awe each time I’ve booted the title up and begun my journey through the beautiful and despair-filled Alpha Quadrant. Each planet, enemy, and ship module feels unique and intimidating. Towards the end of this review, I will talk about some improvements I would like to see in this title, but keep in mind this titleis in Early Access until early 2020.

BELOW Review

For those who enjoy exploring, BELOW is a great addition to your game library, especially for those who enjoy atmospheric elements.

SYNTHETIK: Legion Rising Review

A tightly designed, fast-paced, top-down roguelite, Synthetik will no doubt entertain for hours. With the release of the new Legion Rising free update, there’s even more to enjoy.

Deep Sky Derelicts Review

Fatally flawed with bugs, soft locks, and incomplete map generation, Deep Sky Derelicts is a fun game when it works. More often than not, however, it doesn’t work.

Lovecraft’s Untold Stories Early Access Review

Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is an amalgam of horror, madness, mystery, and the unknown. Choose from five unique characters as you fight your way through 12 randomly generated levels. The variety of Cthulhu-esque baddies in this game really are impressive, featuring everything from gun-toting cultists to deformed, flying nightmares. Thankfully, human and horror are equally vulnerable to molotovs and machine guns.

To Hell with Hell Early Access Review

To Hell with Hell uses a plethora of exhaustible masks with abilities to offer a great new mechanic to the roguelike crawler genre, but overall lacks a considerable amount of mechanical fine-tuning.

AIRHEART - Tales of broken Wings Review

A colorful and clever take on both the fishing and dogfighting genres, Airheart - Tales of broken Wings is a roguelike flight indie that soars higher in theory than in practice.

Dead Cells Review

Dead Cells is a daring roguevania platformer that takes several gambles with its innovative gameplay and ultimately double-jumps away with the jackpot.

Grimmwood - They Come at Night Review

Ward off monstrous attacks during the despairing midnight hour in Grimmwood — They Come at Night, the strategy indie where you must work together as a village to have even a glimmer of hope of surviving.

Insane Robots Preview

Free from bugs, but otherwise not having much to recommend it, Insane Robots suffers from a series of poor design decisions that wind up making it exceedingly average.

Wizard of Legend Review

Wizard of Legend finally delivers the spellcasting combat that mage fanboys have been dreaming of, with fast-paced action and seamless bending of the elements.

Moonlighter Review

Combining the best of adventure and management, Moonlighter is an enjoyable title that is sure to make you smile and get you hooked right away.

Open Beta OPN Highlight: Grimmwood

Headup Games and Big Moustache Games announce their cooperation on Grimmwood, a challenging social multiplayer RPG experience, blending elements of survival, roguelike and exploration.

The Swords of Ditto Review

Slash enemies, puzzle through dungeons, and become the hero of legend in The Swords of Ditto, the innovative indie action RPG clothed in Zelda garb.

EVERSPACE Hardcore Mode Arrives

ROCKFISH Games launch the long-awaited EVERSPACE™ Hardcore Mode as a free update on Xbox One and the Windows 10 Store, upping the stakes and challenging even the most talented pilots. The brand new Hardcore Mode gameplay trailer shows what it has to offer.

Hand of Fate 2 Review

Hand of Fate 2 brings the greatest strengths of its predecessor back in this sequel. Innovative gameplay combines action RPG combat with roguelike progression and deckbuilding, and small quality of life issues in the controls do little to detract from the masterful storytelling of this title.

The Walking Vegetables Review

With many weapons, unlocks, and even co-op play,  The Walking Vegetables has a high chance you will replay it over, and over... and over. It’s a great game all-around, especially if you are interested in a cheap alternative to therapy because your mom forced you to eat her vegetable casserole, even though you told her you hated carrots. The Walking Vegetables takes the best aspects of any top-down shooter, and gives it the 80s-cocaine-treatment that it needed.
