• Two Junes - Blue June and June: Tales from Cyberspace

    July 2021 Kickstarter spotlight – A month of two Junes

    Every month I pick a fantastic game with an active Kickstarter campaign to spotlight.

  • Filbo on the hunt for Bugsnax

    Bugsnax review

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.
