3 Out of 10 is an episodic playable sitcom that follows the world’s worst game development studio as they work to create their upcoming release.

Each year, there seems to be more and more games published for fans to enjoy. Some people love first-person shooter games, others like big open-world games, while some love the abstract. I tend to lean towards the artistically different and thought-provoking pieces. Everhood was a game that I hadn’t even heard of until stumbling upon it on Steam. Happily, I can’t stop thinking about the music, gameplay, world-building, and lasting verberation of its theme and what it accomplishes.

Professor Lupo and His Horrible Pets by BeautiFun Games is a demanding puzzle adventure that challenges players to maneuver through a failing space station that houses some of the strangest and fiersted beasts in the known worlds. Though the story and writing is a trudge, the complexity and mastery of all the puzzle mechanics makes Professor Lupo and His Horrible Pets a great time.

Full Steam Ahead
The SteamWorld series has never been one for complacency. What once started as a tower defense franchise, transformed into a procedurally generated platformer, metamorphosed again into an XCOM-lite adventure, and changed once more into a Metroidvania adventure. This time, SteamWorld Quest wonderfully reinvents the franchise into a turn-based roleplaying card game that’s as fun as it is endearing. Continue reading SteamWorld Quest Review
One More (Gut Wrenching) Run
Dead Cells is a beautifully crafted action-platformer with classic Metroidvania and modern rogue-lite elements. However, this mouthful of a description just cracks the surface of Motion Twin’s latest game. Continue reading Dead Cells Review

Creating a game is hard. Really hard. But after a successful Kickstarter and over four years of hard work, the independent video game development studio based in Texas, PolyKnight Games, published their first professionally developed game, InnerSpace. As an exploration flying experience, InnerSpace provides some beautiful moments, but suffers from some glaring gameplay troubles.

One needs only to glance at my history as a writer to see that Resident Evil is my favorite video game series. Specifically the first three titles, which both established and subsequently improved upon the survival horror genre on Sony’s PlayStation. While that type of game, with tank controls and static camera angles, are viewed today as relics of the past, Rainy Night Creations’ Vaccine may be a vital shot in the arm for this dormant genre.
