Swag and Sorcery Review

A resource management game that’s easy to pick up and doesn’t take a lot of thought to play, but unfortunately lacks depth and becomes stale after a minimal amount of time spent with it.

Diesel Brothers: Truck Building Simulator Review

Implementation is disappointing, as gameplay just doesn’t feel right and leads to frustration.

Weedcraft Inc Review

An impressive amount of mechanics and a nice variety of play styles available, yet lacks depth in social interactions and suffers from a few tedious features.

UBOAT Early Access Review

This unique simulation still suffers from certain aches and pains that we have all come to know and loathe from Early Access titles, but it’s a solid concept paired with great attention to detail and a surprisingly in-depth simulation make for a stunning (if currently unpolished) submarine simulator.

Vacation Simulator VR Review

A follow-up to Job Simulator that loses most of the humor that made that title so great.

Tropico 6 Review

Tropico 6 involves a huge time investment and a steep learning curve, but it is a solid entry in the management/sim genre.

Willowbrooke Post Early Access Review

Despite its wonderful premise and future potential to match the loveable charm of similar titles, Willowbrooke Post is hindered by game-breaking bugs and missing content to the point where it is almost unplayable. Though it does show some promise and you should definitely keep an eye out for the full release if you’re a fan of management-based games, it can’t be recommended at this point in Early Access.

while True: learn() Review

Don't expect much from the visuals, music, or story in while True: learn() and simply appreciate it for its puzzles.

Hands On: Bug Academy

Bug Academy has a playful charm that might initially seem childish, yet the wacky fun it delivers is undeniable.

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.

My Time At Portia Review

My Time At Portia is a fantastic life simulation RPG that allows you to build a life in the post-apocalyptic town of Portia. Similar to beloved games like Harvest Moon and Stardew Valley, My Time At Portia brings a charming 3D experience to the life simulation genre and is a must-have for both old and new fans alike.

Treasure Hunter Simulator Review

This slightly peculiar game has a surprising amount of appeal, despite a few small flaws. Pretty environments paired with decent replayability provides a fun, relaxing few hours, at the very least.

RIDE 3 Review

Create exactly the motorcycle you want, then ride it on an impressive number of tracks, with great visuals and awesome sounds for an experience that feels realistic.

Cities: Skylines - Industries Review

This exciting addition to an in-depth city-building simulator introduces a level of granularity players have been hoping for. Whether you want to run a bustling mining company or introduce rolling plains and farmlands, this latest addition gives you plenty to look forward to.

Nimbatus - The Space Drone Constructor Early Access Review

Building, creating, destroying, self-detonating, designing, and restarting. Nimbatus is an Early Access space-drone design simulator that’s fulfilling to anyone who has a brain for engineering or adventurous curiosity. To put it lightly, my experience with Nimbatus has been one for the books of failure, and has required me to watch countless tutorial videos on how to make a drone that can even be stable enough to maneuver a planet surface. Having said that, my enjoyment in watching my failed little creations of destruction is great enough that I won’t be stopping anytime soon.

Megaquarium Review

There are plenty of fish, yes, but there are also too many menus, along with repetitive music and odd sound effects. The devs have some upward swimming to do to reach the surface of the title’s potential.

Graveyard Keeper Review

For fans of sims that offer a good range of what you can do, this is worth taking a look at. Although it still needs more tweaking, it’s headed in a good direction.

Two Point Hospital Review

With a few quality-of-life improvements, Two Point Hospital would be a fantastic entry-- as it stands, it’s still a charming and hilarious buy for fans of the management genre.

Green Hell Early Access Review

Green Hell is a brand new, single-player survival game from Creepy Jar. Its title does it justice. The game is extremely challenging and the struggle for survival is ever-present as you navigate the seemingly endless Amazon jungle.

Ice Caves of Europa Review

Ice Caves of Europa is a simple, enchantingly atmospheric side-scroller with gameplay that is often frustrating and tedious.
