First Impressions: Parkasaurus (Early Access!)

Parkasaurus is a tycoon game where you get to build a dinosaur park. The game comes with cute comic graphics, but it has the depth that one would expect from a typical park-building game - or will have them at some point. It just launched into Early Acess today (with a price of 19.99 €), … Continue reading First Impressions: Parkasaurus (Early Access!)

Folk Tale: Where is it now? (March 2017)

Update (June 27, 2017): The developer seems to have gone MIA. The last post in the game's Steam Communiy Hub was posted on April 30, 2017. Before that, there were several posts each week. No further patches have happened, no replies on Twitter etc. either. Please consider this if you're interested in the game!   … Continue reading Folk Tale: Where is it now? (March 2017)

Northgard

Quick First Impressions Review: Northgard

I've promised to write down my impressions of Northgard on Twitter. The game released tonight, exactly two hours ago and since it is an early access game, you will not get my usual first impressions review, but a very quick first impressions review. :p I will - depending on the outcome of this first glance … Continue reading Quick First Impressions Review: Northgard

Personal Top 9 of 2016

I have seen several people and gaming sites make their "top x games of 2016" and when wondering which games I would put on my list, I thought: "Oh well, why not publish it here?" Maybe you're already sick of seeing these lists, but stay with me for a bit longer... my list is a … Continue reading Personal Top 9 of 2016

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (September 2016)

First of all, we have Rift and some tiny news about its upcoming expansion "Starfall Prophecy". We still do not have a date for the expansion's launch, unfortunately. I speculated about the time range before, but other than that, it's all guessing. Of course, us players are getting impatient as we would love to hop … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (September 2016)

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (Mai 2016)

When reading through the Steam community hub of Funatics's game "Valhalla Hills", I saw a post by a player saying that Funatics was recently acquired by InnoGames. The post is in German as well as most news postings I found about this happening. However, an English post that I found specifies that Funatics had to … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (Mai 2016)

Insights into indie game development

I bought "Gremlins Inc." in early access and only barely noticed its official launch. Even if I hadn't noticed it, though, the amount of search hits for "Gremlins Inc. review" would have likely tipped me off. :p I did write a "first impressions" piece and for several days, this blog post was getting quite a … Continue reading Insights into indie game development

Sunken – First Impressions Review

In general, I really despise permadeath in games and stay away from games where I am forced to play with this feature. With my playtime being limited due to my job and other stuff I also want to do in my free time, it just seems so frustrating having to start all over again because … Continue reading Sunken – First Impressions Review

The future of The Repopulation

Rather exciting news appeared while I was sleeping: The Repopulation will come back*! The developers (Above and Beyond Technologies) decided to leave the Hero Engine behind and port the game to the Unreal Engine. "This is not a decision that we have taken lightly. While many of our assets will convert over easily to Unreal … Continue reading The future of The Repopulation

First Impressions Review: Gremlins Inc.

(Update: They have added the "save last session" feature with their update on January 22, 2016) Steam's Winter Sale just finished and throughout it, you could gain Steam trading cards for looking at the "Explore" queue of the store. I like getting those cards to sell them. Hey, even a couple of cents are nice … Continue reading First Impressions Review: Gremlins Inc.
