Folk Tale has been in development and in Steam Early Access for a long time already and this is where a lot of the negative reviews are coming from. The developer, GamesFoundry, has steadily been working on the game and there have been regular updates (game updates as well as communication!) in all that time … Continue reading Folk Tale: Where is it now? (March 2017)
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
Fragmented, the "little brother" of The Repopulation will officially arrive in Steam Early Access soon, on April 26. If you already own The Repopulation, you will get Fragmented for free - or you already got access to it if you registered for pre-steam early access-access. :p Either way, there is still an NDA on the … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (April 2016)
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
(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.
I've previously written about Valhalla Hills and my impressions from the outside, but now you can get an impression piece from me from the inside! I was the lucky winner of the grand prize of Blaugust and received a Steam game that I could choose. While I have lots of games on my wishlist, only … Continue reading Valhalla Hills: First impressions
Just a quick warning: I will start with Valhalla Hills and detour to Cultures in the end. :p But there is a very good reason for this: The developers of Valhalla Hills are "Funatics". The very same Funatics that made the Cultures series. There is only a German wikipedia article, but the table of the games … Continue reading Valhalla Hills: Impressions from the outside (Blaugust Day 30)
In general, I am quite cautious when it comes to backing games before they are released. Or so I thought. When preparing to write this post, I collected the games I have backed so far and this is the list: Path of Exile (July 2012 on their website) Darkout (November 2012 on Indiegogo) Folk Tale … Continue reading Backing games – Blaugust Day 27
The Repopulation is currently on sale (until September 4) and you may be wondering whether it's worth those 14.99 € (or whatever it is for you). I bought Early Access back in February and I really wish I could tell you all about my impressions now and whether I like the game or not. But … Continue reading The Repopulation – Quick first impression (Blaugust Day 24)
This week (until May 8), Folk Tale is on sale for 13,79 € on Steam and you may wonder: Is it worth that much money? For me, games that interest me start being "worth it" below 15 € if they're new(ish) and below 10 for older games... very old ones below 5. Don't ask me … Continue reading Folk Tale – Is it worth it now?
