Hindsight 20/20: The Wrath of the Raakshasa is a hack and slasher from Triple-I games, a studio founded by ex-Bioware and Sucker Punch devs.  With that kind of pedigree, you’ll be expecting something a little better than the usual indie tat that we’ve been subjected to recently on PSN and in […]

Project Zero (aka Fatal Frame) is one of the forgotten survival horror games. Coming a little after Resident Evil and Silent Hill there were three titles on the PS2 and then it kind of just disappeared. It didn’t actually cease to exist, with a Japan only title on Wii and […]

Bassmaster Fishing 2022 then. Coming to us from Dovetail Games, dev and publisher of the Train Simulator games, this is a competitive fishing game writ large as only America knows how. The back of a fag packet scribble for this is NASCAR and Sega Bass Fishing made a baby. Even […]

I can’t quite imagine living in a small rural setting. They always look kind of devoid of life and I tend to miss my home comforts. The Prince of Landis, developed by one-man team Lorestrome, is an adventure game with a small slice of that life. Landis feels like one […]

Gynoug continues Ratalaika Games recent trend of porting obscure old shoot ’em ups to modern systems.  As with their previous port, Gleylancer, this game is a horizontally-scrolling shoot ’em up that was first released in 1991 on the Sega Megadrive (American readers will know it better as Wings of Wor).  The game […]

Sherlock Holmes has a long legacy of video games, some of which are fondly thought of. It’s a very suitable license for a video game, with a strong, already established character who is highly skilled at what he does. Putting him into the correct genre, like a point and click […]

Sherlock Holmes Chapter One – PS5 Review


Backbone from Vancouver-based developer Egg Nut and publisher Raw Fury is, to use their own words, a  a pixel art cinematic adventure with stealth and action elements. That’s labouring the point a little bit perhaps as it’s more a walking and talking gumshoe-em-up. Think film noir scenes based on a […]

Insomnis is a first-person horror-themed walking simulator and puzzle game that comes to us by way of Barcelona-based coders Path Games and is the latest product of Spain’s ‘PlayStation Talents’ indie games programme.  Despite its name sounding like a typo (try Googling it and see how much Google protests), we […]

I think losing my memory might be the one part of getting older that would terrify me. Reminiscence in the Night comes from Team Soletude and plays on those fears. What follows is a very brief narrative that maybe doesn’t quite hit the right notes about losing grip of the […]
