Fancy striking some colossal giants down, proving to the gods you’re a worthy shieldmaiden and learning a handful of things about Norse mythology all at the same time? Jotun [Review] might just be your thing, and with its recent release on consoles comes an updated edition aptly named ‘Valhalla’.

This darling indie sandbox with a rocky Early Access career has finally seen the light of 1.0 and well… has been met with some ups and downs from both fans and newcomers alike. Starbound is a game that caught my eye more than a year and a half ago with a short video of some gameplay and some music. Though I won’t talk about that, since the game is in 1.0 and in that sense a lot has changed.

Indie Spotlight is a new, regularly posted segment written by me that will highlight some really good and often overlooked Indie games that are available on Steam. If you’re someone who enjoys the indie side of Steam, this may be the segment for you.
The first game for this segment, as you can probably see from the title, is the aptly named, Blades of the Righteous. This is a neat little turn-based strategy game that involves two main aspects, micro-managing a fantasy kingdom and fighting enemies in a turn-based battle. Developed by Vladimir Slav, this indie gem is definitely worth your time, and allow me to explain why… Continue reading “Indie Spotlight: Blades of the Righteous”
A strange, alien world. Dozens of weapons, items and abilities. A huge, sprawling map, full of secrets and hidden sections. The constant need to go back with your newfound powers to access previously unreachable areas. If you were to read this description two decades ago, you’d think ‘Metroid’, and with good reason: Axiom Verge is Metroid in all but protagonist and name. Continue reading “Review: Axiom Verge”
I know what you’re thinking. A serious review on this game? That is a recipe for disaster, kinda like electing Tony Abbott. ‘World’s Fastest Pizza’ is a high speed rogue-like comedy game about delivering pizza to the hungry customers of a sleazy fast-food restaurant. Developed by Oscar Brittain, you play as Tortoiseman, who also works under the alias of Cornelius Pretorius. Aside from winning the naming lottery, the game’s protagonist also has the prestige of working at fast-food restaurant in the outbacks of Australia. Continue reading “Review: World’s Fastest Pizza”
A couple days ago, the people over at the Humble Bundle finally dropped their monthly bundle. There were a few standout games that caught my eye but I will be honest, Switchcars was not one of those games. However, once I decided to load up this ‘vehicular rogue-like’ game, I was pleasantly surprised. It was like finding that elusive piece of pizza that had been sitting at the back of the fridge for days, sure I was hesitant to try it at first, but after going for it, I was glad I did.

Jotun is, more than anything, a tale about a Viking, her gods and facing giants (the titular Jotun). With gameplay and titanic foes that reminded me of Shadow of the Colossus and an artstyle that’s somewhere between Studio Ghibli and a Disney cartoon from the 90s, Jotun also counts with an astounding soundtrack and Icelandic voiceovers to further flesh out the whole Norse theme.
