Vagrus: The Riven Realms (First Impressions)

13 Oct 2021 6 minute read 0 comments bengy

  I'm pretty careful when it comes to buying games at launch. Mostly, I already know that if I buy a game, it will either just sit around being unplayed until a year or two later... or it will come out on Humble Bundle again. Or it will knock eve...

The Council (PC Game Review)

11 Oct 2021 6 minute read 0 comments bengy

  The Council was released in 2018 by Big Bad Wolf and Focus Home Interactive on PC (and some of the boxy things...). I've not always liked games that have come out under the Focus Home portfolio of games, and so I have been quite wary about play...

    Unsplash   I've never really been a huge fan of online gaming. I can't really say what it is... but it is likely mostly due to the fact that when I am gaming, I want to lose myself in my own world, it is my own private sort of entertainment...

  Dicey Dungeons was released in 2019 by the famed indie developer Terry Canvnagh for PC (and also on MacOX and Switch). Cavanagh has had a couple of pretty interesting games under his belt with the titles VVVVVV and Super Hexagon, both of which...

Thoughts about the newest Humble Drop and Historical Listing (up to August 2021)

2 Sep 2021 6 minute read 0 comments bengy

August 2021 Humble Bundle Choice   This month's Humble Bundle drop initially looked a bit ho-hum. No giant AAA titles to lead the package, but on closer inspection, there were quite a few interesting games that would appeal to either me or my c...

Jupiter Hell (PC Game Review)

29 Aug 2021 6 minute read 6 comments bengy

  Jupiter Hell is a top down rogue game set in the far future with a space setting. If you watch the trailer, and are a certain age of gamer... it will remind you of something! Anyway, the game itself is a sequel to the original DRL (Doom Rogue-l...

Ambition: A Minuet in Power (First Impressions/Kickstarter backing)

22 Aug 2021 6 minute read 0 comments bengy

Ambition Minuet in Power   I love backing games on Kickstarter. Compared to backing hardware or other genres, it is slightly less risky and you get the feeling that your contribution makes a real difference to an indie game publisher, even if...

  Wow, it has been quite some time since I posted my slightly breathless First Impressions for Wildermyth. So, this is my proper review of the game after a few months on and off with the game in between a few other games.. after all, a proper rev...
