Dungeons 4 is probably the best entry in the Dungeons series. The game isn’t for everyone, but it is phenomenal, with outstanding voice-acting and story to gameplay that is both satisfying and challenging. Dungeons 4 is a must-play for fans of the genre or for players who want to live out their evil overlord power fantasy.
Endless Dungeon is packed with a ton of things that just make the game an absolute joy to play. The game has snappy and responsive combat, fun and varied gameplay that never feels grindy or repetitive, and just a great cast of characters. Though the single-player experience isn’t the game at its peak, it is definitely worth your time, and you won’t regret it.
My Time At Sandrock is a phenomenal Life Sim, but more importantly, it has shown how much Pathea has improved as a developer. They took all the criticisms that were given to My Time At Portia to heart and gave us a game that built on what its predecessor had established while going above and beyond. That’s not to say the game is perfect; crafting especially can get overwhelming at times, but as long as you’re patient and give yourself enough time to get used to all the different machines and how they work, they end up becoming a part of your daily routine. My Time At Sandrock is definitely a game we would recommend you give a try if you want more than just cozy living.
Paleo Pines is a game for all ages, from both young children to nostalgic adults who want to go back to simpler times. The game fulfills a childhood fantasy many of us had while growing up and combines it with a fun farming sim that is both simple and easy to learn as it is rewarding to do.
Jusant may be short, but it is truly unforgettable. It is definitely one of those games that will stay with you for years to come. The game truly shows how far DON’T NOD has come in terms of being a developer, and only time will tell what their next masterpiece will be. Jusant may be short, but it is well worth your time and is an absolute must-play.
Knight Vs Giant: The Broken Excalibur is hard to recommend. It has solid ideas and concepts, but the execution has seriously missed the mark. The game has padded out its story and gameplay with tedious grinding, and instead of actually creating a fleshed-out experience, the game just decides to wash and repeat itself until you either get everything or uninstall it out of exasperation. If you want to give it a go, by all means, do so, it is fun, but you probably need a lot more patience than you think.
Blasphemous 2 is the perfect sequel to the first game and simply feels like a continuation of Blasphemous story while not changing what it doesn’t need to. The game is perfect for fans of both Castlevania who enjoy the challenge of Dark Souls. Though the dialogue may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it certainly immerses you.
Baldur’s Gate 3 was well worth the wait. The game truly captures the beauty and insanity of DnD and mixes it perfectly with the gameplay we have come to expect from the series. If you’ve played the first two games, then playing Baldur’s Gate 3 will feel like you’re seeing an old friend, one that has grown greater and better… and slightly more sexually inclined. Baldur’s Gate 3 is very much worth your time.
Jagged Alliance 3 may come across as your standard military strategy game that tries to take itself a little too seriously, and it is, but the game has a lot more layers to it. The game gives you many choices that impact the story and offers players plenty of variety on weapons, mercenaries and playstyles. Pity about its soundtrack.
Noob – The Factionless isn’t an award-winning RPG, it’s simply a love letter to a genre that holds a special place in the hearts of many. It is definitely a game you play for the story, which is about a group of gamers who have dreams of making it big and who make a few friends along the way. A must play for those who grew up on the role-playing games of the last two decades.
Kingdom Eighties is just fun. The game is easy to pick up and hard to put down; with the removal of micromanaging, the game is far more approachable for new players of the genre. The game features a cast of interesting characters with as much cheesy 80’s charm and humor packed into them as possible and a radical synthwave soundtrack that will make you feel nostalgic for the old times and make you finally grow that mullet.
Teardown is a game that clearly shows that the devs care a lot about their audience and that they want players to have as much fun as they possibly can have with their game. The game is certainly an interesting one with its demolition and heist mechanics that is paired perfectly with beautiful lighting and satisfying sound design. Teardown is definitely something you should check out.
Nocturnal is a short yet phenomenal experience that needs to be played multiple times to truly be appreciated. While yes, you may be a tad bit confused at the end of your first run, but if you stray off the linear path, you may find the true embers at the heart of the game.
World War Z: Aftermath is an excellent addition to an already incredible experience, with the addition of new characters and just general quality of life improvements. The expansion builds onto what is already there and fits seamlessly into the main game. There's not much to say about World War Z: Aftermath, the additions it makes to the gameplay aren't crazy but simply build onto what is there and somehow makes it even better, if you have the patience to grind.
Miasma Chronicles is truly like no other and is not comparable to anything else in its genre. The world is fleshed out and feels alive, and the gameplay, with its steep learning curve, offers variety and flexibility that’s not seen anywhere else. Miasma Chronicles is definitely worth your time, and you should definitely give the game a try.
Liva’s Story DLC is a seamless addition to the already incredible narrative of Gerda: A Flame in Winter. While it doesn’t change much or add anything revolutionary to the game or its narrative, it doesn’t need to and merely just adds a bit more context to the main game’s story. If you are a fan of narrative-heavy games or just a fan of Gerda: A Flame in Winter, then Liva’s Story is an excellent addition to the game, one that you will greatly appreciate.
Stray Blade is a game packed with lore and characters that are both fun and memorable. What original mechanics and design choices the game has failed to shine bright enough as it seems to be too occupied with trying to follow a formula rather than figuring out what will make it shine above the rest.
The Last Case of Benedict Fox is one game that, unlike its peers in the Lovecraftian horror genre, doesn’t rely on doom and gloom and instead provides you with a visual feast for the eyes. The game has incredibly simple yet flexible combat that gets brought down by its control mapping, which may get you eaten once or twice.
Zoeti is a fun yet simple deck-building game that incorporates both RPG and roguelite mechanics into its gameplay. Sadly due to how these elements conflict with one another, you cannot completely appreciate both. That’s not to mean the game isn’t worth your time, and you should definitely check it out, especially if you want a deck builder that doesn’t faff around and keeps things simple yet enjoyable.
