Six of our writers descended into the city from all over the country and we want to take the time to show some of the most noteworthy games we had the pleasure to check out. Now, it is important to note that there were far too many games for us to see. There was no way we cou...[Read More]

World of Goo (Nintendo Switch) Review

World of Goo has been around for quite some time, being a fairly unique PC game that could run on just about any computer system of the last ten years or so. In fact, it was one of the first full games I was able to run on my junk Windows XP machine way back when. Now, this classic puzzle game has made its way to the Nintendo Switch, but is there enough in this port to entice new players or is it ...[Read More]

IndieBox creates affordable collector’s edition games fo...[Read More]

While this time tomorrow our news feeds will be filled to the brim with ridiculous jokes, IndieBox has a different way to celebrate. What started as a joke became a phenomenal success.

Pato Box combines Punch Out with Mad World

While I was at PAX it was easy to get distracted due to the sheer amount of sensory overload. From the masses of people shuffling about in a current of sorts throughout the expo hall to the tall statues and displays that dominated the scene, there is just so much going on. While tracking down a particular booth, the crowd somehow coaxed me into a little corner of the show, where I saw a black and ...[Read More]

It’s pretty obvious was Interceptor Entertainment was going for in Rad Rodgers: World One, a classic 2D Platformer with the humor style of Conker’s Bad Fur Day that shows tribute to the Apogee-era of games.

BOSS – A New Atari 2600 Game

Alright, so even though I’m a bit of Retro Guru here on Marooners’ Rock, I will admit that my knowledge of anything prior to the NES is pretty hit and miss. While I can name off most of the consoles after the NES in order or release and spout off all the cool little features of each, I never had much interest in anything before that magical gray box. That’s mainly because prior t...[Read More]
