Bamm makes his triumphant return to the mic with Drac and they talk about a few games that are due to release next month. Then it’s on to our interview with Lucas McCann of Luna Orion about their Kickstarter that goes live today (May 1st, 2018) for Wild Mage: Phantom Twilight. Drac seems a little extra excited about this one, but then he gets that way when a game has Beholders in it.
The Pantropy team are re-launching their kickstarter!
In ‘Shadow Bug’, you play as a heroic ninja attempting to save the forest you live in from an evil, monster-spewing factory by slicing and dicing those monsters to itty-bitty pieces. In some ways the premise reminded me a bit of ‘FernGully:The Last Rainforest’, and I immediately wished the silent glow-fly that acts as your pointer would have something funny to say (a la Batty) when you eventually get yourself killed and have to restart a level.
A Tower Defence styled Sci-Fi game set in space with beautiful set-pieces, a nice little story, varying mission types and tech-trees you can fill out as you go, all sounds like it should be right up my alley … Like, it REALLY ought to!
Attack of the Earthlings is a Turn-based Strategy game with a comedic twist. Here you play as an native species defending their planet and resources from an evil invading force of alien humans.
Bacon Man, the man, the myth, the succulent pork. Due to our love of all things Bacon, there simply was no way we could not check this game out. In this 2D, side-scrolling platformer you play as Bacon Man (or one of his 3 friends), battling through the food groups to confront those who wrongly condemned you for killing your father. Clear his name by beating the Meat Kings into submission.
Draconusx takes a look at a City-building/Strategy game called Hexters, from Draconus Entertainment. No relation…no really, we’re serious! This one came to our attention because of their company name and Drac got sucked into it.
The Void Rains Upon Her Heart is a bullet-hell, boss-battling, shoot-em-up with some dark themes and interesting game mechanics. The game is being made by one developer who notes the game contains subject matter based from anxiety, depression, and suicide as well as some light artistic nudity.
Kingdoms & Castles follows in a long line of city-building and resource-management games, mixing in a bit of Tower Defense in a setting with raging vikings, ogres, and dragons that fall out of the sky randomly.
PFC Calico is back with another game, this time Tokyo 42!
Isometric Assassin game, the unholy love-child of Syndicate, Grand Theft Auto 1, and all the neon, he finds a fun, easy to approach but challenging game.
As a kid, I really wanted a LEGO train-set, but never got one, so now as an adult I’m compensating by spending far too much time playing railroad sims.
