  • A cloud causing havoc in April indie game releases Rain on your Parade.

    April 2021 indie game releases – part 1

    I love the selection of April 2021 indie game releases! I decided to split the new releases post up into two because the months are just jam-packed with games! Recently, many games only announce their release dates a few weeks (or even days!) out from release, and they get missed on my monthly posts. So, I’m hoping to split the post into two will have more awesome games for you to check out.

  • Excellent combat free games featuring Call of the Sea

    My favourite combat free games of 2020

    The year 2020 was a year like nothing most of us have experienced before, but indie devs persevered. There were heaps of excellent indie titles released in 2020, and many of them were combat free! It’s been fabulous to see the emergence of more and more combat free games. They’re usually also gorgeous to look at, with engaging stories and wonderful soundtracks. My list comprises my top 5 combat-free games for the year, but there are many more out there. So many that I didn’t get a chance even to try all the ones I wanted to. Interestingly, though, three of the five games I’ve chosen were released in December.…

  • December indie game releases - Alba sitting on the beach

    December indie game releases 2020

    Every month I feel a bit like a broken record because I mention how impressive the line up of new releases is, and December is no different. December’s indie game releases are looking excellent, with so many titles it was hard to decide which to feature in this post. I’ve been able to narrow it down to a superb selection. Get prepared for December 3rd!

  • Filbo on the hunt for Bugsnax

    Bugsnax review

    Everyone’s talkin’ ’bout Bugsnax. Seriously, it’s all anyone ever talks about on Snaktooth Island. They’re all a bit obsessed, and perhaps a tad addicted, with Bugsnax. So, what are Bugsnax, and why do we care? It all starts with intrepid explorer Elizabert Megafig finding Snaktooth Island and learning of its unusual inhabitants. The Bugsnax are adorable little creatures that are extra tasty, with the side effect of turning your limbs into them when you eat them. The Grumpuses on the island don’t seem to mind though, in fact, they quite enjoy it and want to be loaded up with Bugsnax, until not much of their original form exists anymore. The…
