I couldn’t say enough to properly convey my utter disappointment in a game that I am feeling right now writing this review. I will not go on a rant and sound too whiney. Stay away, maybe put it on your watchlist and see if they add something worthwhile, currently its a creative mode game with 21 building blocks to choose from. The lag is real with this game.

F**** NO not worth it, so many other games cheaper that are worth mine and your time. No game options at all, you get new game, continue and quit. When you are collecting stone with pickaxe the only item you have with no inventory your fps drops down to 6 fps for a short moment. So you collect stone and build that’s the whole game.

Lucifer Within Us

Lucifer Within Us

Normally I operate a £1/hr to determine if a game is worth playing, and I’ll admit that I was worried about “Lucifer Within Us” when many were seeing short play times in the demo. However, I had enjoyed the demo so much that I gave it a chance knowing that it was very doubtful the game would be very long.

Having completely finished the game with all achievements, I feel the game was worth it.

The story is very well written and pulls you in with the voice acting adding that touch of atmosphere to convey the character emotions perfectly, particularly during confessions. My personal favourite was the second investigation where, despite having worked out what was going on, I was still shocked by the outcome and confession. The little touches with the voice acting delivery and graphic choices were key to creating that atmosphere. Well done!

I’ll start with the good things. This game has an interesting style and setting. The color pallet doesn’t hurt the eye and the graphics are passable if you don’t scroll too close. A strange mix of high-tech and theology would make an interesting setting for a bigger game. The mysteries themselves are pretty good and may take some time to solve on the first playthrough.

But the problem is, you will only play it once. Now, to the bad stuff.

1. The game doesn’t allow you to lose. You can’t accuse the wrong person, you can’t frustrate the suspects to the point of angry unresponsiveness. In fact, you are encouraged to do so, based on achievements. The absence of failure allows you to just play dumb and spam every possible combination of clues and statements until it clicks, making the whole detective part meaningless. Even when performing the exorcism, you are safe. Wrong daemon name? Well, just try another one!

Serin Fate

Serin Fate

(This review is based on the June ‘20 update)

Right off the top, I want to be clear this game is still, as advertised, very much a work in progress. However, that being written, I’ve enjoyed my experience enough that I’m content having bought the game at full price even though many of the game mechanics are presently under-explained and the game play is a bit out of balance here and there. What’s more, I can tell from past comments in the forum that some problems have already been fixed – I’m looking at you, person still whinging about inventory size when I massively upgraded mine as a rank newbie in three days of in-game time – so the Developer seems to be responsive and engaged.

Grindy Achievement(s): Yes (1 achievement).

Optional Achievement(s): Yes (12 achievements).

Difficult Achievement(s): Yes (1+ achievement).


Serin Fate is an adventure RPG with a lot of mandatory elements that you usually find in farming games in addition to magic and monster taming. You can farm, mine, capture monsters for you to fight, fish, and many more. Despite the varied features, it still focuses on the adventure element at its core, allowing you to explore the whole region and figure out how to proceed from the obscure hints.

Next to zero parts to play with. UI is painfully limited and configured.

Hexagon World

No. Just no. Do NOT pull the trigger on Hexagon World.

It’s pretty feature-free. The only controls are to 1) add land; 2) add water; 3) make a set of hexes desert; 4) make a set of hexes snow. That’s it. Nothing else. If you play this for 5 minutes, you’ve done everything you’re ever going to do with it.

Two menus (house and bomb) aren’t even implemented. No way to change the speed. No way to change the sound volume. No way to scroll the map – you can only zoom in and out on the center point. The cool airplanes? Just dots on the screen; you can’t even see what they’re doing unless it’s happening near the screen center. Switching from flat earth to globe view often results in just a black screen.

The guns feel great especially the minigun on the initial car you drive. Currently there is a shotgun, handgun, smg, and assault rifle. The combat can be tricky if the enemy detects you first. There is fuel scattered around the map and makes you search for it to keep driving.

Territory - animals genetic strategy

Territory - animals genetic strategy

Territory is an isometric 2D real-time single player strategy about genes and animal species. Animals are behaving the way they would in nature, but you can indirectly control them and mutate them to achieve various goals like dominance in the ecosystem.

Core Gameplay Mechanics - Challenge Mode

  • you are entering the game with one species and mutate it to different species later on

  • you are playing on the map with existing ecosystem that is producing various sources of food

  • you are changing species genome and that is changing its attributes and behaviour

  • map is populated with various species (~10 depending on map size), species can die out, species can mutate to new species in time

  • each species has its own territory, its size and shape can be adjusted

  • species can be herbivores, omnivores or carnivores and can have one of five different sizes

  • species lives complete live from being born to death, need food to survive

  • individual animal can die in fight, starve to death, can be killed by predator, die by disease or die by old age

  • species are hostile only when they share the same source of food and has similar size

  • you can migrate your species to new territories

  • you can invade enemy species on its territory

  • you can defend your territory from enemy species

  • you are evaluating your surroundings and complete ecosystem to determine your next steps

  • species are reacting indirectly on player’s command if certain conditions are met (migrate to new territory only when not being hungry, having certain genes, etc.)

Core Gameplay Mechanics - Sandbox Mode

  • you are playing on the map without any species

  • you can create unlimited number of species

  • your goal is to achieve the largest biomass and/or diversity

15 hours worth of exactly what I wanted, I’ve maxed everything out, looking forward to full release! I paid 5$ for this, and easily would have paid 15 - 20$ for the alpha.

Not sure if a developer has ever read one of my reviews before but, things I would like to see in the future for A.G (also my initials, because were dope) are :

Relationship status with villagers - Increasing this would broaden the villagers desires and spending leeway. The amount you overcharge on an item would be in the formula for decreasing their relationship points. Levels of acquaintance could be titled. Pop up messages from villagers to convey appreciation or anger. “Damnit! I can never rely on you!” This may even end up influencing his battle outcomes.

I bought and played this game for about 5 hours on Alpha 2 until they updated it the next day with Alpha 3, and there were so many changes that it feels like a whole different game. The Alpha 2 version was fun if a little simple, but the update has made the game so much better in a lot of ways. It was like the developer could read my mind, they added pretty much everything I wanted to see in this game.

Overall, the game is a lot more fun and a little more challenging than it was before. If you enjoy collecting/harvesting items and crafting with them at a casual pace, then this could be a fun game for you.

Definitely Not Fried Chicken - “For All Your Legitimate Fake Business Needs!

Definitely Not Fried Chicken is a business management sim with a Twist!

Grow your drugs trade through legitimate fronts by managing both sides of the business. Acquire new “businesses”, meet new clientele, develop more potent narcotics, make lots of money and leave a city in ruin!

Set in a sunshine soaked city in the glamorous 80’s, DNFC will test your entrepreneurial business skills.

Build your drugs compound from the ground up, buy adjoining plots of land and expand. Design and lay out your complete production line and establish distribution routes. Fortify your compounds defences and make sure any “overly-enthusiastic” customers can’t break in. Research and develop better strains of narcotics like marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine.

But simply making a great product is not enough, you need somewhere to sell it from! This is where your legitimate businesses come in - you’ll need to build and manage these fronts, including selling legal goods to avoid detection, people gotta eat right? Run a chain of Fried Chicken stores or diversify your portfolio with other businesses. Different places have different people with different tastes.

The backbone of every business is your workforce, the people who tirelessly carry out the tasks you assign them for minimum wage. A happy employee is a productive employee so it’s important to make sure your staff have the basic necessities like washrooms and a place to eat. A well furnished break room is great for staff morale!

And safety equipment will really help with staff turnover/mortality rates…

This game is really a lot of fun. There is a lot to manage, but much of it comes pretty quickly as you try things. I had some questions and the devs responded very quickly. If you enjoy management games, this one is very worth a try. I got it on a bit of a sale, but I have already gotten full-price value out of it. Very fun. Very well done.

The premise is interesting and it is kind of fun when you get to run your department, respond to important and non-important calls. The developer has put in time and effort to come up with interesting calls, and I enjoy that sometimes the “bad guy” tries to shoot it out, sometimes they attempt to get away and on the odd occassion, they surrender to the Police (almost like in real life). Jurisdiction is a better version I think of 911 Operator from 2017. However, right now the game is very buggy and the camera controls are god awful. If the developer isn’t preparing to do immediate patches and continue to work hard at the game than this is a terrible investment … however, if the developer continues to develop this game … it could be a gem
