Tom vs The Armies of Hell is top-down isometric action adventure game where play as Tom, a computer programmer whose office is plunged into the depth of Hell, and luckily enough you’re still alive with a prototype weapon that can chance into other weapons if you got the module for it, and a demonic arm that will transform you into a large demonic monster for a short period of time. Aside from the actual gameplay and story the game has to offer, which are really nice, the game has an option in the graphic settings to pixelate everything, making it look ‘old-school arcade’-ish which we find really nice.
A new gameplay trailer for Watch Dogs Just came out showcasing the multiplayer aspect of it, and from the looks of it it’s not only hack or be hacked, but also teams versus other teams and possibly Coop with a lot of interesting ideas for game modes.
With the new multiplayer gameplay trailer, now we have a lot of gameplay previews from a bunch of gaming websites/channels showcasing new singleplayer, multiplayer, and companion app gameplay, and some glimpses of cock-pit view mode in action. Plus we finally got to see what does the spider mech from previous screenshots had to do with the game, we found out that it’s a spider tank and it’s playable.
All these new info and gameplay previews are getting us excited for the game and hopefully that excitement doesn’t go to waste once the game comes out.
SightLine is an adventure puzzle game which uses gaze direction as a core gameplay mechanic, what that means is that anything that you don’t see might change. With narration in the game to walk you through this confusing, lovely yet somewhat scary game. Whether you’re in a dangerous situation or not, it can all change depending on where you look and your perspective of it. Really enjoyed playing SightLine as we like weird and creative games, plus the narration helps too. You can download and try out the demo on their IndieGoGo campaign where you can help them fund the development of the game if you like what you see.
FRACT is a first-person musical exploration game. You arrive in a forgotten place and explore the vast and unfamiliar landscape to discover the secrets of an abandoned world that was once built on sound.
In FRACT, you explore and solve puzzles while making music and shape sound as you progress through the visually, TRON-inspired, beautiful open world game. You can also compose your own music in a studio in game, and save, export and share your musical creations with others.
The game looks beautiful with its minimalist, TRON inspired style, and the graphical animations and reactions are outstanding, a good variety of puzzles with unique styles to solving them, plus they made everything simple but complicated in the puzzles you solve, and having an actual music editor in a studio like area where you can make your own song for you to save, export them and share to anyone.
Nothing really, if there was a complaint it would be a one, 3-part hard and Confusing puzzle to solve.
FRACT OSC will cost you 15 dollars where you can get it on digital distribution websites like Steam, or you can get it on the developers website, and for the asking price, this is a great game to playthrough, plus it’s also a music editor so it is well worth the price.
Thanks to Phosfiend Systems for providing us with copy of FRACT OSC, and the game is beautiful looking with great musical tracks and musical notes, and the results of finished puzzles are really satisfying. I would say the game is a mash up of Antichamber’s simplicity, some of the feel of NaissanceE’s atmosphere, TRON’s visuals, and 80s-90s ski-fi hacker sound SFX, and we have FRACT as a lovely result.
Here is one of the sound tracks made by Mogi Grumbles using the in-game studio
The Game To Play 5/6
Gorogoa is without a doubt one of, if not the most beautiful and creative puzzle game that we have ever seen. The game is cleverly hand drawn, and the puzzles are a delight to go through, where you rearranges four tiles on a simple grid, the process of solving the puzzles are great and more so if you solve them. Gorogoa received a lot of awards and rightfully so, and i encourage everyone to go download and play the demo here rather than looking at screen shots or watching gameplay videos.
Hover: Revolt of Gamers is a first and/or third person parkour game that’s inspired by Mirrors Edge and Jet Set Radio, With a futuristic, fully interactive open world environment set in another planet, and the composer of Jet Set Radio (Hideki Naganuma) is working with the developers to make great original soundtrack for the game.
The game focuses on gameplay, and by gameplay we mean jumping from wall to wall, slide on gutters and barriers, and jump off the ground with great distance to never loose height. Hover is also not an FPS so no guns, which leaves the developers to focus on the games movement and free style trick system in the game for you to have fun with and get high scores. While working on refining and improving the gameplay mechanics, the game was and is being made with multiplayer coop in mind so you can do awesome fun missions with and/or against your friends.
We aren’t happy about there being exclusive playable characters for certain pledges, we hope they change it so that we could unlock them at a certain point in the game, or at the end of the main story. We did contact them concerning about it, and a reply we got saying that they would change it if there was a push from the community, so if you don’t want this, send them a message on their KS or on their twitter page.

Light, a top-down minimalist stealth infiltration game with a focus, aside from stealth gameplay, on narrative to keep the action going. We played the game where we infiltrated a building and snuck our way through the guards and searched every room aside from a few locked ones, but we found rooms with a computers in them that were able to hack unlock those doors, after that we went to unlocked rooms and gathered the Intel and escaped. This is one of many to come when the game releases, and we can’t wait to play more of it, only thing we wish for is to have the mission impossible song in the game.
Dead Years is a beautiful open world zombie survival Role-Playing Game for PC (Windows, Mac, Linux), and as usual you have to explore and scavenge to find necessary resources to survive, and you’re not alone, you have a dog as your companion that will help you fight back and survive through this outbreak.

Children Of Liberty is a good looking 2.5D game with great, and fun stealth gameplay. The game isn’t hard but hopefully that will change further down the line up to release. Played only the first level the game has with one character called Joseph. We had fun playing it and enjoy the 2.5D visuals and the gameplay that comes with it, and we honestly love to see more games with the approach of 2.5D instead of normal 2D or full on 3D, we don’t see much of them and we want more of it.
