Spellbreak Preview

If the success of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout has taught us anything, it’s that it’s possible to make a successful battle royale without the use of guns or crafting. As the genre becomes increasingly popular, it’s interesting to see the different spins developers add to the ‘last person standing’ style of play. Spellbreak‘s twist? Fantasy.


Windbound Review

The Nautilus’ Garden In The Sun

HIGH Perfecting my all-bamboo watercraft.

LOW Dying because I was too weak from hunger to hunt for food.

WTF Seriously, how is there not a hunger meter separate from Stamina?


Outward Review

A Familiar Journey

HIGH Finding a sweet new backpack to carry more stuff in.

LOW The combat is super, super basic.

WTF The best backpack I found was two treasure chests
lashed together with a belt.


Planet Nomads Preview

While I can’t say for sure what’s going on inside the developers’ heads, it’s impossible to look at Planet Nomads’ aesthetic and not come away with the impression that – at least on some level, the game exists as a way to make good on No Man’s Sky’s promises. It’s a game matching NMS’ 70s sci-fi look but keeping the scope to a single planet. Will setting more modest goals lead to a better result?


Symmetry Review

In Space, No One Can Hear You Swear

High Deep space survival has never felt so perfect.

Low It’s also punishing to the point of frustration.

WTF Why is there a button to kill my people?
