There are some pretty bizarre games out there and Varagtp’s Cooking Witch may be one of those games. You are a witch. A hungry witch. Good thing someone’s throwing a party in a forest! It’s the perfect opportunity for you to fly around on your broom and crash the party for a little late-night snack!
A while back, we shared a ton of amazing games that we nominated in various categories as some of the best games from our time at PAX East 2017. That weekend brought many of the Marooners’ Rock team to Boston, checking out hundreds of games and experiencing quite a bit of sensory overload. Just as I mentioned in our nominations post, there are plenty of games that we missed out on; this isn&...[Read More]
As a title that’s been winning tons of awards from various outlets (including our own as a nomination for Best Indie Game), there is a lot of excitement behind Mages of Mystralia. The first title released by Borealys Games, Mages of Mystralia has been making waves with its unique spell-crafting system and Zelda-like action. Coming to PC first, Mages of Mystralia is launching on May 18th for ...[Read More]
I had the pleasure of getting a chance to play Super Rude Bear Resurrection while walking through PAX East’s Indie MegaBooth. It was after this that I decided to keep this game on my radar, because I was so impressed by it’s level design. It was funny to see other players come up and die many times, yet they were so determined to get through it. After finally getting my chance to play the whole ga...[Read More]
Boston, an often overwhelming city, offers one of the best opportunities to see the newest games and ideas in the industry. 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 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]
Limited Run have jumped in popularity over the last year, quickly making the company the go to place for collectors of physical editions of games. Each release is made with a limited number of units, hence the name, while also being one of the only ways to get these games in physical form. Specializing mostly in PS4 and PSVita titles, Limited Run have just announced a slew of new games on the way,...[Read More]
I’ve always been a huge fan of physical games, which has led me to pursue a lot of special releases through companies like Merge Games or Limited Run. This is mostly how I expand my video game library on consoles, but there’s another company working on bringing back what made PC gaming so much more fun in its earliest days. 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. This year, IndieSox is at it again, providing indie love for your feet! This strange, yet awesome way to celebrate April Fools also helps out Stack-Up, a charity that supports military veterans.
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]
Nathaniel Weiss, an ambitious game developer out of Oakland, California, has been tirelessly creating a unique experience with his game Songbringer. This one-man team does everything in the development process, art, music, mechanics, literally everything. Now, he’s getting a little hand with the indie publication and development group, Double Eleven. Double Eleven are the ones responsible fo...[Read More]
