The Empire has fallen, what remains has become vile and corrupted, sacrificing to gods that should remain forgotten, they have awakened them and claimed unholy powers, however in their arrogance they have awakened something more, they have awakened you.
Shoot them with a variety of powerful weapons to reduce them to chunks
Cut and Bash them with your enchanted weapons to regain health and replenish their alt-fire ammo
Discover the secrets of this decaying world and become unstoppable
Move like the wrath of heaven and send them to hell

Anemoiapolis: Chapter 1
You have fallen into a surreal and haunted underground neighborhood. Discover its origins and escape with your life - and sanity - intact.
Remember that hallway you found at your workplace or school? The one you didn’t realize was there before. Nobody ever goes there, it has no windows, and it seemingly has no purpose. The lights might be on, the floor is usually clean, but it exists for nobody.
This transitional place is the lifeblood of Anemoiapolis: a world with no sunlight and no humanity, buzzing with fluorescent apathy. It does not care about you, yet it watches intently.
Experience the dungeon-like malls, pools, hallways, and basements of Anemoiapolis in first person. Utilize platforming and puzzle solving to navigate the barren commercial catacombs. If you start to feel complacent, you might not be ready for what’s around the corner.
Anemoiapolis reflects the experiences of a developer who grew up among empty buildings in Midwest USA, and who is currently processing our world of empty buildings brought on by COVID-19.
Expect critiques on mindless consumerism, feelings of impending doom, and eerie “mallcore” aesthetics.
Soundtrack by JORDANN and 4REST

Cards of Cthulhu
Cards of Cthulhu is a casual little game, simple in design but with suprising depth. You pick cards for your deck from a choice of random two. Two cards at the beginning and more are added as you progress through the battles. Then you jump onto your motorcycle, grab your shotgun and ride across the wasteland to face off against Cthulhu himself - who stole your girlfriend, as villains in games have traditionally been fond to do.
Each opponent you meet on your way you fight by playing your cards (and autoattacking with your shotgun). Simple enough? The depth of the game is knowing when during a combat round to play each card, in battles with consequitive fights of more than one enemy which card to save for the next enemy, which card in a given situation perhaps not to use at all, which cards to deny your enemy from playing, and when to not play cards.

This game packs a lot of style and fun in a simple package, It is relentlessly focussed on play dropping you right in the game and back to the start when the game ends, which is minor but a refreshing change from the typical game with lots of menus and cut scenes wasting your time. This one has confidence in what it is delivering and delivers it proudly.
Each game you collect a small deck of cards each of which can be used once against a monster or set of monsters. In this way each run feels fresh because you are building a new deck which will be played differently than other decks.

_“They’ve promised that dreams can come true - but forgot to mention that nightmares are dreams, too”. - Oscar Wilde
Your eyelids are heavy, your muscles relax, the sound of the television fades away to fatigue after a hard day at work. You embrace the arms of Morpheus and dive deep into the infinity of your imagination.
You wake up on an idyllic white sandy beach. A light breeze makes you shiver as the sun sets on the horizon. After a peaceful walk along the beach, you discover a huge dark bunker gate, which opens as you approach, inviting you to come in.
Your curiosity takes over and you decide to explore the place, revealing a wide underground complex. But what started as a perfect dream quickly turns into a bad one when you realized you’re not alone in here.
Find your way out, explore, solve puzzles and fight for your survival. Or your sanity.
Bad Dreams is not a game that should be played by everybody. It’s a unique experience filled with horrors and secrets. So be ready to face your darkest dream. But never. Ever. FALL INTO MADNESS._
Bad Dreams is a VR Horror game developed by French indie studio with outstanding and immersive gameplay based on real gesture. A unique experience, where nightmares become reality.
Immersives controls :
Bad Dreams will put all your senses to the test. Look, listen, smell, touch, run around… Don’t forget to do all this quietly because the evil is lurking, a strange evil that can’t be silenced without taking your head with both hands… Use your VR controllers like never before. Pinch your nose to avoid mortal gaz, cover your ears to save your spirit from madness…
In Bad Dreams, you must watch your sanity gauge very carefully and keep it as low as possible. If you don’t, insanity will take hold of you, and you will fall into limbo. A place where only the worst nightmares manifest. Run for your life to escape this hell and pick up right where you lost your mind.
Use flashlight or matches to explore a dark underground network. Crouch and be quiet to avoid unnecessary fight. Pray to take the good path or die and try again. Do not forget your flashlight battery or embrace the darkness and its subjects.
A horde of zombies, mutants and atrocities will come to haunt you throughout the game. Fortunately for you, there is a large choice of weapons and how to use them: kill, maim, and burn the monsters to save your life.
Your path will be filled with puzzles to solve. Some of which would seem simple at first… But not when you’re under attack and creatures are roaring behind you. Thrilling moments guaranteed.
Hard choices :
In this game, you will have to choose which tool or weapon you’ll carry. You can carry one thing per hand and your inventory will offer you two slot so use it wisely.

BUGS & DEVLOGS
The flashlight attached to the wristband may be flying above it.
Grab an object when you already have one in the other hand may shift (move) it a little bit. This is only visual.
I don’t write reviews. This is my first. I’m not even going to review the game as I’ve only played 20 minutes.
I will however review the developer. I’m 50+ years old, I remember Pong releasing (I had one), I remember the handheld football, I remember Pac-Man releasing and Space Invaders and my Atari 2600. In all those years and all those games I have never seen a developer as responsive as Dark Gaia. They answer Steam forum posts quickly, troubleshoot and fix bugs within hours of reports, release multiple hotfixes in a day if necessary. Very, very impressive.
I really liked this. It has a lot of subtle and not-so-subtle nods to Resident Evil. The combat can get quite difficult, it really just depends on how you play the game though. I had some difficulties with a few of the puzzles, but I’m not good at puzzles so there’s that to consider.
The Darkside Detective
The Darkside Detective revolves around Detective McQueen and his slightly thick-headed sidekick Officer Dooley, who together form the Darkside Division of the Twin Lakes Police Department. Twin Lakes is a city which has a long history with cults, monsters and other spooky things but thanks to McQueen and Dooley its citizens have nothing to worry about, most of the time at least.
Estimated reading time: 3 minutes.
Now, tell me about the game.
It’s a pretty simplistic point-and-click comedy adventure game, simplistic in graphics as well as interface and gameplay but more on that later.
The Darkside Detective is an enjoyable point-and-click game which has it all - humour, toilet humour, wise references, interesting characters, sound research and a lovely attitude towards life as a whole.
Disclaimer: I will say “Yes, recommended”, but be warned that there is lots to improve in this project.
However, I did find it too easy. Obviously, by the humour and topics discussed in the game, it’s not made for 13 y.o. people, however, most of the puzzles were so easy! As soon as you’re done with each, you’d feel as though you’re yet to start. It’s classic puzzles in a traditional setup. We’ve been going at them for at least 25 years (happy birthday, Myst!!), and I am bored of having to solve the same-ol-same-ol.
