Last week, I spoke a little about a pretty cool game called Ruinarch, in which you take the role of a dark god and screw up as many villager lives as possible. Well, I was lucky enough to secure an interview with Marvin Apacible, the brains behind this awesome indie game. Ruinarch is on sale […]Read more "Gamedev Interview: Ruinarch"
Hello all! I’ve slowed down a lot on the blog as you guys know. Don’t worry, SPFBO interviews are still going, and I have quite the backlog to get through.

So we come to the final five. This took me an agonizingly long time to work out. If anything, I think it was harder than last year, which was no slouch in itself. But, I finally came to my choices, and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. All five of these games are […]Read more "Games of 2019: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…"
Since I like keeping some suspense before revealing my Top 5 of the year, I thought I’d talk a bit about some other games I’ve played in 2019. Nothing huge or too in detail, just little thoughts here and there. And because I like teasing. Let’s give this a go. Heaven’s Vault A game […]Read more "Games of 2019: Interlude"
This has been an interesting year for gaming, and I’ve managed to play quite a lot this year as well! This should be a fun series for the end of 2019 that gives a bit of insight into what I’ve been doing when I should be writing my books. This is about video gaming, and […]Read more "Games of 2019: 10-6"
Got a very nice dev interview to show with you guys: Nate Austin, owner of Worldwalker Games and the lead dev behind Wildermyth, a really cool game.
