  • Gamescom 2020 - Demo for Nine Noir Lives

    Must try demos from Indie Arena Booth 2020

    Gamescom 2020 is here, and the Indie Arena Booth has done some fantastic work with their virtual booth. Step into the booth, and you’re presented with a vast pixel art virtual convention floor, with nearly 200 indie games represented. Pick your avatar, and choose a game, then you can walk around and learn about all it. There are also heaps of demos to find, play and enjoy. Here’s the list of my favourites:

  • The Liberated taking over all devices.

    Liberated review

    If you love an old school comic book, then you’re going to enjoy Liberated. Told across the panels and pages of a comic book, Liberated is the story of the struggle between the rebels and the government in a dystopian future. Although it isn’t too different from the world we know. Cameras are everywhere, cash is being phased out, and a citizen credit system has been implemented. Are you a good, obedient citizen?

  • Neversong - Granny is sad because she can't breathe

    Neversong review

    Dark, sepia tones set the scene in Neversong and let us know we’re in for a grim adventure. Initially, Neversong started its life as a 15-minute flash game from 2010 and, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, was re-imagined into what it is today; a macabre tale of kidnap and lost parents in a nightmare world. My first thought when I started Neversong was how similar it looks to Pinstripe, which is no surprise given they are both Thomas Brush games. Neversong and Pinstripe share many similarities, especially in the art style, but also in their dark and creepy environments. If you enjoyed Pinstripe, you would probably enjoy Neversong too.
