Archive for the ‘game preview’ Category Checks Out Steam Marines

I’ve been wanting to check out Steam Marines for quite some time now; and luckily, developer James Seow was kind enough to indulge my desires with an alpha build of the game. This video is the lovechild of that unholy union. Behold! So: first impressions! Steam Marines is basically what would happen if someone turned […]

Remember Fantasy Kommander: Eukarion Wars? (I hope so–I just posted about it a few days ago!) The developers were kind enough to give me a copy of the game to look at–per tradition, I have done so, recording the affair and providing my thoughts in real-time as I go. Without further ado! (Note: I recommend […]

There comes a time in a man’s life when he has to sit down and try out a hip-hop sci-fi RPG. That time came for me a few days ago when I finally got around to trying out oddball jRPG Kanye Quest 3030 (previously covered here). The results? See for yourself: My initial impressions: the […]

David Pittman of Minor Key Games was nice enough to give me access to a (very, very) late alpha version of Eldritch (previously covered here). He writes: “I’m calling it an alpha, but it’s closer to what other developers would probably call a beta: it is content complete, and the only things that are changing […]

You may recall me posting about UnEpic a couple of weeks back. Developer Francisco Tellez de Meneses was good enough to send me a copy of UnEpic to check out–and so naturally, I recorded myself doing just that. I was rather surprised to discover that UnEpic is not just a side-scrolling action RPG–it’s actually a […]

I’ve been curious to try out Conclave ever since I got wind of it. Last night, that is exactly what I did. You can see the results below: I didn’t get too far, as you can see, but Conclave seems to have some real promise–especially if you’re playing it with friends. (That said, I’d really […]

I was curious to see what Phil Hamilton had gotten up to with his latest release, Skyborn (previously covered here), and so I did what I often do in these circumstances: I went ahead and checked the game out while recording my first impressions. The result? See for yourself! In short: I found the first […]

I got a chance to check out Bonfire last night, as Moacube was kind enough to send an alpha build my way. As is my custom, I made a video of the proceedings. That video follows: More than anything, the combat in Bonfire makes me think of a turn based variant on The Spirit Engine […]

Last month, I posted about Delver’s Drop and interviewed developers Pixelscopic on certain aspects of how the game will work. Yesterday, I actually got my hands on a pre-alpha build and took it for a test drive. What you see here is not a finished game, but I can confirm that what they have done […]

I’ve been itching to try out Driftmoon ever since its release last week; in this video, I scratch that itch. Among other things, this is the first (and probably only) time you will hear me read dialog as a hermit crab pirate. Come watch as I play through the first 35 minutes of Driftmoon!
