Children of Morta Preview — Familial Traditions

Children of Morta by Dead Mage is a game about a family of guardians who keep up a familial tradition of fending off against a slew of adversaries.


In today's gaming industry many genres tend to be plagued with oversaturation; not to say that a particular genre has declined in overall quality, but there is no denying that you need to dig deep within a specific genre to find a gem that's worth your time and money. That being said, it takes a lot of originality, smart advertising among other things to help make your game stand out from the rest.

Owlboy on Nintendo Switch is Worth Giving a Hoot

Owlboy is as good as its been made out to be and playing it exclusively in handheld mode on Switch has given me serious vibes of the bygone Game Boy era.


I've been playing Owlboy on the Nintendo Switch for a majority of this past week and I find it to be such an incredibly charming game. From very early on, the music, aesthetic, and the game's sympathetic protagonist Otus draws you into the world that it has created and fills you with a sense of wonder....

Dandara Review — A Metroidvania Worth its Salt

Dandara Review — A Metroidvania Worth its Salt

by

on February 18, 2018 7:31 PM

Dandara by developer Long Hat House is a fresh take on Metroidvanias, tethered in the game's ability to make stationary gameplay feel exciting.


Developer Long Hat House's Dandara is just a conceptually pleasing game. Rethinking the standard Metroid-type game from the ground up, Dandara approaches a near-saturated genre with new takes that genuinely flip gameplay on its head.

Dandara is without a doubt a merger of old and new ideas. On one point of the spectrum, the game offers the standard (and still equally relevant) Metroidvania layout. Starting with nothing, you build up Dandara's arsenal over time through exploration, backtracking, and boss fights. The game's map is split up into visually-distinct sections that you are encouraged to poke-and-prod your way through to find the ...
