A really solid and well-made party game, it’s like a piece of art in my steam library.

  • Haven’t encountered a single bug/glitch

  • Fun, entertaining and trippy artwork

  • Clean user interface

  • Great sound design

  • The way the gentleman pops up and says “Awkward!”, is a really nice touch

  • Native controller support, which is something that can be overlooked in these sorts of games

  • The “super awkward” update essentially sorted out the only issue the game had, which was the wait for round 3

So what is Awkward?

It’s a simple yet addictive opinion guessing game. It’s fun with a friend or partner but should be most fun in a group where you try to do better than the others. I found the comparison with the “rest of the world” to be less interesting than I had hoped, so I can’t really recommend playing solo.

Final verdict: Wait for a sale!

Strongest point: A game in your steam library you can play with any person. Plus: Geat artstyle.

Vegas Tales

Vegas Tales

The owner of the fabulous Bellflower Casino Hotel in Las Vegas is terminally ill. Having devoted his life to running his hotel, he never made time for family or friends. With no obvious heir, he’s hired you to help him choose the right person to inherit the Bellflower. He narrowed his list of candidates down to a small group of people who have strong personal connections to the hotel, but whom he knows little else about. They’ve agreed to be interviewed by you under the pretense that you’re writing a book about the Bellflower Hotel. None of them know what’s truly at stake. It’s up to you to get to know these people and determine which of them is most worthy of inheriting the Bellflower. This will be no easy task, as the group contains some unique and memorable characters who will make your decision quite difficult. Be careful though, as there may be more to some than meets the eye.

I certainly hope this thing will soon come out of early access, because i, not gonna lie, can see the potential there. Devs try to make walking-and-talking sim something better and broader: distinct toxic visual, trippy music, lot of interesting scenes (just need to fix all glitches and typos)

I never expected getting away with murder would be this fun! I thought Overboard would be a straightforward piece of interactive fiction, a few different routes to a few different endings, a great story along the way. Instead what I found was a deceptively simple game with a ton of moving parts. Everyone you share the ship with has their own routines, agendas and information, all of which are stacked against you. When you start this game, you will almost certainly fail. It’s through multiple (very quick!) playthroughs that you’ll begin to piece together what’s going on, what everyone’s hiding and what gaps in their knowledge you can exploit.

In the past few years, Inkle has really won me over as a fan by putting out interesting and inventive narrative games like Heaven’s Vault and Pendragon, giving interesting an informative talks on game design at narrative-focused game conventions, and maintaining their popular trademark design tool, Ink, which is available for anyone to use. Overboard, their newest title, is a surprise release, completely unannounced prior to dropping on the storefront yesterday.

In Overboard, we meet an attractive young femme fatale who, in the opening scene, impulsively seizes an opportunity to get rid of her crappy husband by pushing him off of the deck of an ocean liner. The next morning, we step into her shoes, and have one in-game day to help her cover up the crime before the resident Poirot-like detective connects the dots and sends her to jail. To succeed, you will have to lie convincingly and keep your lies consistent. You must search the ship to locate and dispose of evidence without drawing suspicion onto yourself. Meanwhile, find out what your fellow passengers know about the crime and bribe, blackmail, drug, or seduce them into silence. If that doesn’t work, find a more violent way of getting rid of any witnesses. If you are really skilled, you might be able to pin the crime on someone else to collect that sweet, sweet life insurance money.

“Nancester, we’re doing a review on your game. Would you like to say a few words about it?”


“Come on, Nancester. Tell people why they should play Negative Nancy. Is it for my dashing good looks?”

“My heroic deeds?”

Dead In The Tropics

Dead In The Tropics

Outlive your friends in this social multiplayer elimination game. Once a day, a player must be sacrificed so the others can live. What lengths will you go to to be the last remaining?

The group must decide who is the next to be eliminated. How could you make that impossible choice? You only see one option. At night you vote.

Work together during the day, turn against each other at night. Will you be defeated by the starvation, the trials of the island, or the complicated island politics?

Key features:

  • Deep, strategic, turn-based gameplay. Simple & easy-to-learn mechanics that cause nuanced, social consequences.

  • Online multiplayer. Betray real-world friends or strangers on the internet.

  • A game with voting at it’s core. Do you lie & scheme, or fly under-the-radar? How you play is up to you.

  • Balance your individual goals with the survival of the group. Eating more will give you a survival advantage, but it will not make your popular.

  • Randomly generated events and tools, along with the unique turn-order system, make every playthrough different. The decisions you make early will determine how the week plays out.

  • The AI of the island will decide your circumstances. Those met with good luck may find themselves targeted by others, while the unfortunate may be ignored as unthreatening. Adapt your strategy to the hand you’ve been dealt.

  • Those eliminated will still have a role to play on the final day if you choose to stick around. Short sessions mean it won’t be long until you’re back in the action!

Dinner with an Owl

Dinner with an Owl

Saw it was an odd game, decided to stream it with some friends for a laugh.

Originally beat the game in nine in-game days and about 20 mins. Decided to fuck around after that point and see what happens… and see what happens we did, the game has quite a few scares an odd behaviors when you start breaking it and doing things at strange times. Quite some spooks and some laughs… and some glitches like the magic phantom knife… game loves calling you out on your bullshit when you start fucking around.

I absolutely LOVED this game! It’s a short and sweet point and click game with a wonderful little creepy story. Took me half an hour and 11 in-game days to complete! Not sure if you can do it in any less but it was super fun and I really did like it. The artwork was so lovely and it gave me some Rusty Lake vibes (without the puzzles!)

10/10 enjoyed, highly recommend to anybody that wants a nice little interactive story with some lovely music too!

Big props to the devs & co! Would love to see any more games you come out with!

Let us consult the stars.

Astrologaster was one of those games that I almost passed up on. I don’t remember exactly when I first came across Astrologaster, but it didn’t click with me at first. I was just sleepily browsing the upcoming games section around midnight, as you do, and it popped up. Finding the name interesting, I clicked, looked at the screenshots, and thought “hmm, I don’t know”. I saw it a couple more times, but when it got closer to the release date I finally watched the trailer. Why I didn’t watch it before, I can only blame it on being way too tired that night. With the combination of finding the trailer and the real life element behind Astrologaster intriguing, as well as peeking at a gameplay video, I thought “Hey, why not take the chance?”. Spoiler alert, I’m glad that I did.
