Born of Bread VIDEO Preview


Hi everyone! Eugene Sax here with a preview for an upcoming game from

WildArts Studio Inc and Dear Villagers present Born of Bread — a turn-based RPG with obvious inspiration taken from games like Paper Mario.

CARTOON TIME: SilverHawks, 37 Years Later

So, SilverHawks is a bit of a weird one. If you’re a kid who grew up in the ‘80s (or if you’re a retro lover who came to the cartoons of that era later) you might be familiar with this Rankin-Bass production. If you haven’t seen it, SilverHawks is about a group of cyborg police, sent from Earth to the faraway galaxy of Limbo and stationed at a floating space-base called Hawk Haven.  Their goal?  To crack down on Mon*Star and his Mob in order to keep the good citizens of Limbo safe.

This Is Not A Review: Dead Ink

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. The subject of this installment: Dead Ink, developed and published by Offwidth Games.


We’ve recently seen a sharp increase in requests to preview games, and one that caught my eye was the puzzle platformer, Ugly. While the name didn’t pique interest, the cartoon style and its mechanics intrigued me. The demo is short and sweet, but shows promise.

VIDEO PREVIEW: Alone in the Dark (2023)

Alone in the Dark is back! After a 15 year absence — and yes, I’m aware of the terrible co-op shooter from 2015, it doesn’t count – the literal first name in survival horror is back! GameCritics was invited to an online preview event, and I have thoughts!

PREVIEW The Arkham Asylum Files: Panic in Gotham City

POW! SOCK!! BLAM!!! As modern pop-media consumers, we’ve heard about comic books “coming to life” time and time again – but Infinite Rabbit Holes — a project from studio Animal Repair Shop — is claiming to do that like never before with their Arkham Asylum Files series of deluxe mixed-reality game boxes. The first in the series is out now, it’s beefy, and it’s ambitious!


HIGH The combat is a uniquely engaging turn-based system that never feels unfair.

LOW Online play is already sparsely populated.

WTF Half the NPCs in the game hate me…
