For many games, the majority of the fun comes in the form of mods (in-game content created by players). So when a mod for Elder Scrolls: Skyrim hit 3 million downloads, after its release in 2015, the developers took this as a sign. They freshly remade the mod to become its own standalone game, improving the NPC’s unique stories, and including mythology into the background of the story.
Ah, the 1980s. An era where computers slowly began impacting our lives. Familiar household names such as Apple and Microsoft slowly made their entrance, and mobile phones became a common item. This was the decade bringing an end to the Cold War, and the delightful game everyone loves, Pacman was released.
Over the winter period, we find ourselves curled up on the sofa gaming more and more. It can be quite a difficult stage to spend time alone during these dark and cold nights. But what brings light to the tunnel is all the games we get to experience with others. whether that be online or shared in your own home. Today I am very excited to share with you the joyous Fly Together! on Nintendo Switch.
Kiwis are adorable fluffy little birds native to New Zealand. Did you know they are also flightless birds? You would think being a flightless bird, they wouldn’t carry much talent, but apparently, they can also run teleposters. (Post offices to you Non-Newzealenders)! With this in mind, let’s find out how we got on taking the role of this cute and innocent curiosity.
Friends of mine will know I have limited patience when it comes to puzzle games. Purely because the second I start playing, I lose every brain cell. It becomes impossible to remember how to complete games and even the simplest of challenges. Something about the style initiates a wall to come up in my brain. Because of this, I am very picky in choosing which puzzle/arcade types I play. One common feature in all puzzle games I have played, are those that seem to have been published by our friend Ratalaika Games.
From our younger days, the idea of there being parallel worlds or mythical creatures are highlighted amongst many tales. Witches brewing cauldrons and dragons flying high above the clouds could possibly exist, according to the stories you were told. One game that brings the idea of dragons to life is Angels with Scaly Wings. This visual novel takes you on an adventure as you travel to a different dimension through a portal. This is a world of dragons going about their day to day life, but your arrival looms trouble. As you find yourself in the deep end, now trying to solve a murder mystery, the story takes you on a whirlwind adventure. Meeting new people, solving crimes, and discovering new locations, all come together to tell a tale unique to Nintendo Switch.
When I imagine my ideal cosy scenario, I picture being under fluffy blankets and playing the latest indie game with a nice cup of tea. The game of choice always has to match the environment. I can hardly be cosy if I’m hunting down the latest cults in Far Cry. One rainy day and a blanket fort like no other, I decided to give Garden Story a go. Instantly drawn in by the adorable graphics and soft-hued colour palette, I knew this light-hearted game would fulfil my recreational needs.
