Developers Behind King’s Quest Remakes Launch Kickstarter for Original Title

Thursday, February 21, 2013 No Comments

Their pitch video may not have the same production quality of some, or even many of the other projects out on Kickstarter these days, but the team at Himalaya Studios, raising funds for a new point-and-click RPG, sure seem to have their hearts (not to mention the experience to back their proposal) put into the […]


Epic Quest

Monday, April 23, 2012 No Comments

The Epic Quest table for Pinball FX 2 and ZEN Pinball sets an interesting precedent for pinball games. Even after you’ve lost, your game is saved, allowing you to continue from that point the next time you play. With your experience and loot saved, you can continue the table’s “story”. Designed to blend pinball and […]

Xenoblade Chronicles

Thursday, April 19, 2012 No Comments

The first thing I noticed about Xenoblade Chronicles was how subpar the graphics were.

Cambridge, Massachusetts –based developer Demiurge Studios has been working hard over the past few months, putting together its 2D side-scrolling shoot-em-up role playing game, Shoot Many Robots, however, it’s been rather silent as of late.

Battle Slots RPG

Wednesday, May 11, 2011 No Comments

Battle Slots is another example of an interesting concept-turned poorly executed product. It is an RPG in theory but, to its detriment, focuses on its slot-based combat system more than any of the RPG elements. It does include a leveling system and customizable add-ons, but those features all play second fiddle to the egregiously repetitive […]
