4 Jul 2021 3 minute read 3 comments The GCC

Today I'll be taking a look at Kolobok, a simplistic web-based idle game by CryptoLions released earlier this year (around April of 2021 from what I could find). The term Kolobok comes from an Eastern Slavic folktale about a pastry that comes to life...

Today I'll be taking a look at the indie game Healer Simulator. This title was released on Steam in 2018 and was developed and published by one A. Filimonov. Normally I would link to the developer's website, or the official site for the game, but I h...

Apocalypse Series #20: Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut

13 Mar 2021 2 minute read 0 comments The GCC
