It’s not a question that’s posed everyday, but if you take the only answer available that I know of, you’ll cut off his hand, attach it to your own arm and then follow him into Hell to get it back.

SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell (hereafter SEUM:SfH!) is a boisterous, loud game. The soundtrack is metal. The imagery is Metal. Even the name is METAL. It comes as no surprise to discover that developer … Read More »

At it’s core, Toby: The Secret Mine is a platformer and puzzle game at its core.  Right from the first time you start the game, you … Read More »
