Help Others


In the near future, AI corporations have taken over and are hunting down anyone not cooperating. This lead to a robotic arms race as the remaining “free” people mod themselves with any tech they can find and fled to the deserts and other unpopulated oases. Now its every man for himself outside the giant numbered cities run by the AI corps. Squeezed between assassin robots and cyborg gangs, one man takes it upon himself to lock up anything that can be locked up and… reprogram the rest? Lets all just ignore the growing rumors of an “all consuming sludge” appearing from the south.

Steven Universe: Unleash the Light

Steven Universe: Unleash the Light

I love this franchise and the light series is one of the best Innovative fun RPG I had played in years.

I was really looking forward to play the 3rd game so much after (SAVE THE LIGHT) and

here I am.

On the Downside this game was created for mobile market first so expect

downgrade from the second game that was develop for console instead.

It is like the first game (ATTACK THE LIGHT), but other than that it still have

elements of surprises of the second game had. The game feels like a little

If you’re a fan of steven universe you should enjoy this game greatly! Not technically necessary to have played the previous two, but I definitely recommend it.

Fair warning: Unlike save the light, which was developed for consoles from the start, this game was originally mobile only (apple arcade). As such, movement is restricted to just transitioning between grids on an overall map like in the very first game which was mobile only (attack the light) rather than full free movement like in save the light. Regardless, the result is a game that’s a lot more stable than save the light was on release (which, from what I recall, was grumpyface’s first venture into making a non-mobile game, and still an amazing experience)

Steven Universe: Unleash the Light on Steam



It’s a single player auto-battler with RPG, strategy, and roguelike elements. It’s an ambitious project that combines several of the most rewarding elements from each genre. Currently the game is in early access with a typical “run” taking 45 minutes - 1 hour upon successful completion.

The development team is very responsive on Steam and their Discord and has already released several patches since the game was launched last week. They are also working on making the game accessible and fully playable for the visually impaired, which I think deserves a positive recommendation all on its own.

Prince of Qin

Prince of Qin

Cracked the game back then when I was 9 at 2009 and playing it 12 years later just feels so nostalgic from the music to the gameplay.

Real player with 51.4 hrs in game

Definitely more of a nostalgia buy, but it’s an old-school very deep RPG in the vein of old-school Divinity titles.

The game has a nice charm to it with the visuals and side content, but be prepared to consult guides occasionally and explore a lot because this game is cryptic sometimes.

Real player with 89.9 hrs in game

Great reverse tower defense game. Easy to get hooked!

Single-player is fun, but multiplayer up to 8 players over LAN (but can fill in bots with different difficulties if you’d like) means I can blow up my buddy’s armies from afar.

Make lots of armies, blow up the other guys' armies, make bigger armies, and conquer. Multiple factions and individualized talent trees allows versatility in playstyle and adds a lot of depth to the game. 5/5.

Cascade Tactics

Cascade Tactics

Cascade Tactics is a tactical RPG full of interesting and interactive abilities. You are a novice mercenary in a war-torn world. Hire your team, choose your classes, upgrade your equipment, and see how long you can survive.

Whether you want to hack your way to victory with powerful soldiers or strategically maneuver in the battlefield to maximize your profits, you can enjoy Cascade Tactics.

Features a Dual-class system with interesting synergies.

A Commander can issues commands to other units. A Ninja can attack twice with his weapon. When a character’s two classes are Commander and Ninja you can issue commands to other units to attack twice.

A Sentinel can guard tiles with his weapon. A Pyromancer can deal damage to an area with Flames. When a character has both classes, he can guard locations with Flames: casting it anytime an enemy walks on the tile.

An Archer can add any magical ability to his weapon attack. A Necromancer can raise a Skeleton if the target of his ability dies. When combined, you can raise a skeleton upon killing a target.

A Lancer can add cast time to his weapon to deal more damage or add cast time to a spell to increase its area-of-effect.

Interactive Mechanics:

Status Effects are linked (or channeled). Deal damage to the caster to stop the status effect.

Many actions take time before they are executed. This gives the opponent time to react. Deal damage to the caster to stop the action. Move / Push / Teleport units into or out of danger. Protect the target with another action before he is hit. Change the target of the caster with Silencer’s Redirect. These opportunities allow the battles to feel fun and interactive.

Rime Berta

Rime Berta

To note: while I do recommend this game, I do so with careful consideration of the game’s many MANY issues, which you’ll find below. The playtime is not exactly correct (I did leave the game idling a few times), but I did beat it on Hard.

At its core, Rime Berta is an extremely barebones SRPG in the vein of Final Fantasy Tactics (but without most of the depth). You get to command an army of ‘puppets’ with different classes, each with mostly unique skills, and occasionally change classes when you hit certain skill milestones and get to hire random units at the end of most battles. There are no items or inventory whatsoever, units can’t change class outside of their own class trees and can’t choose different branches of the same tree once you commit to one. Combat’s fun enough when it works and I don’t remember running into any glitches.

Real player with 62.7 hrs in game

This game is not Tactics Ogre, nor is it Final Fantasy Tactics. It lacks features like items, detailed plot, and multiple ways to heal units beyond what support units (clerics in the aforementioned games) can provide.

However that does not mean it’s a bad game.

As an indie game, its lack of features and arguably gameplay polish is quite evident. The camera controls are unintuitve, but the developers allow you to select units from a list if your POV can’t spot them. Sometimes archers can’t shoot down cliffs in certain situations, but mages laugh at the concept of terrain. For many flaws, the developers have offered less frustrating workarounds.
