The indie developer world has been making a theme out of how much they can squeeze out of great gameplay with minimal Hollywood style appeal. In comes Demimonde, the one-man game development studio behind Octahedron. The studio’s creator Marco, also known as Monomirror, is solely responsible for nearly all aspects of the game, including design, programming, and art. Octahedron brings new life into action puzzle platformers through addictive fun gameplay with a very unique visual appeal. From the beginning as well as looking at any trailers you find, you will wonder what Octahedron is even about. Its mix of visuals … Read More »

Have you ever experienced something and just think to yourself “what just happened?”. Not that it was a bad thing but the experience was so random and off the wall that you just feel weird after partaking in it.  Welcome to Mutant League Football, a witty recreation of the 1993 American Football classic that uses creatures and machines in a make believe league that focuses on comedic style sport a-la NFL Blitz. Mutant League Football is based completely on inappropriate jokes, lots of violence, and a heavy arcade style of the sport that gives quick cheap thrills and entices a … Read More »

For those of you who never paid attention in any history class, during the 1940’s the world was in its second World War.  Now as a gamer well after the fact, this traumatic event has given us the opportunity for us to try to relive those experiences as a front lines warfighter.  Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China gives everyone a chance to experience those amazing dogfights in the skies of the war while giving players a bunch of ways to play. As XboxOneUK’s resident Yank, and a former member of the US military, it was hard for me to look … Read More »

Everybody likes a good scare. The thrilling feeling emotion of a jump scare without having your life actually at risk gets the blood flowing and causes the unique feeling for players. Dynamic Pixels has attempted to do just that with Hello Neighbor inviting players to be a small child being hunted down by a creepy neighbour that you’ve decided to break in the house of. However, with the look of a childrens cartoon and no real suspense build up, Hello Neighbor falls short of what it ultimately wants to achieve. Being a small nameless child, you witness a neighbour up to some suspicious acts … Read More »

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. That’s the premise of SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell. Seriously. And do you know what? If you’ll humour it for a moment, you’re likely to have some fun. 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 »

Sometimes, games end up with names that have absolutely nothing to do with what they’re about, or what they’re like to play. And other times, the title of a game will tell you almost all that you need to know about it – a snappy couple of words that absolutely nail down a concept. Time Recoil, coming this Friday from 10tons is a game that fits into the latter category. Time Recoil is a top down, twin stick shooter that’s about time travel. Set in a dystopian 1987, you’re an agent called Alexa who is travelling back and forth in … Read More »

Back in March at the Game Developer Conference, Microsoft had some tasty tidbits to announce. One in particular was how they were introducing the Xbox Live Creators Program, which allows developers to incorporate Xbox Live features on their games across all Windows platforms and devices. Yesterday, this program began rolling out to select preview members, and as one of the lucky ones to have been selected, let me tell you that this is most certainly the new iteration of Xbox Indie Games seen on the Xbox 360. Only a handful of titles are available at the moment including Solitaire HD, … Read More »

For those looking to look back to traditional American wood paneled station wagons, porn style mustaches, and punishingly difficult puzzlers, look no further than Serial Cleaner. Developed by iFun4All, Serial Cleaner puts players in the shoes of a 1970’s ear criminal that is hired by other deplorables to clean up murder scenes before the police are able to properly conduct their investigation of the crime. Feeling like Hotline Miami and offering some nostalgia of Metal Gear Solid, you are expected to avoid police, collect evidence, load dead bodies in your station wagon, and vacuum up blood (wonder if that actually … Read More »
