The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands – Review and Gameplay Videos

The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands By: Xigma Games As someone who liked the idea of Raw Fury's Kingdom: New Lands more than actually playing it, I was still very much looking forward to Xigma Games' The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands. My biggest issue with Kingdom was having to start over from scratch every time I messed up. It's hard to even know you're not doing well until you get to a point where you're low on resources and can't fight off the enemies. I loved the artwork and atmosphere, but just couldn't Read more [...]

Art Club Challenge: Gameplay Video and Impressions

Art Club Challenge By: Polytundra LLC As someone who minored in art in college, the idea of a game that tries to mimic an art class appealed to me.

‘Four Last Things’ iOS Review: Oh My Bosch!

Four Last Things By: Joe Richardson If you ever thought, "why isn't there a point-and-click adventure built out of old Renaissance paintings," you might be happy to learn that there is indeed a point-and-click adventure built out of old Renaissance paintings. Joe Richardson's aptly named Four Last Things has been out on PC since last year, but mostly went ignored by me because I hate those dirty, disgusting things. So I was excited to discover that it was coming to iOS, where I could lovingly Read more [...]
