After sitting down and discussing the game with 3D Artist, Lorenzo Conticelli, I hesitate to call this “survival horror.” Calling this horror, in my opinion, disrespects what LKA is setting out to do with...[Read More]
Top hats, steam-powered gadgetry, airships, and clockwork. Steampunk is pretty popular with modern storytelling. From Sherlock Holmes to Batman, stories have been told in this rich setting for a long time now.

I started with the PSOne classics, backtracking to the older releases and their remasters to the point that I quickly saw the series as a timeless collection.

In the Indie Megabooth at PAX East this year, there were a ton of games. Only a few constantly had a crowd, and one of them just so happened to be one I had an appointment with. Say hello to Thumper, a rhythm-Hell game for Steam and PlayStation 4/ PlayStation VR. During my appointment, I had the opportunity to play through their demo, which I felt like took 20 minutes to go all the way through it,...[Read More]
