Coffence Preview

For some adults, coffee is the lifeblood elixir that gets them through the day. In Coffence from Sweet Bandit Studios, this couldn’t be more true as coffee is the life — literally —  of each character. This is a fighting game where players attempt to hit the other’s coffee cup until it’s emptied. It can be played as a duel between two players, or up to a four-player free-for-all.

This Is Not A Review – Herald: An Interactive Period Drama

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.
