No Man’s Sky – The Abyss

No Man’s Sky.. No Man’s Sky.. No Man’s Sky.. [big sigh] how I love you… how I hate you.. how confused I am by what you have become. It is hard to know exactly how I feel about this game now. I have defended (and rightly so) Hello Games and Sean Murray since I pre-ordered and started ...

SEE/SAW: Where Dying is a Strategy

If See/Saw was a baked good, it would be a chilli chocolate cake. Familiar, addictive, and yet hiding a punch that delivers when you think you’ve got it down. You start off as a character that needs to go through “tests”. Some professor dude (who looks weirdly a lot like you) takes you through the tut...

The Jackbox Party Pack 5

I squealed when I saw that this was going to be released. It was a little embarrassing because I was in a room full of people minding their own business. Needless to say, I am a big fan of the games. However, if you’re a Jackbox virgin, let me just quickly lay out what’s in store: 1) Learning st...

A Day with Dinosaur Polo Club

PMG reviewer Di recently covered the little success of Kiwi-made indie game Mini Metro. She spent many hours staring at transit maps, dreaming of geometric shapes and brainstorming new strategies to solve cities’ commuter problems.

The Tower of Egbert

Poor Egbert. He’s a tiny homeless sorcerer who dreams of having a lofty tower. No humble single-storey cottages for this little guy. Fortunately, he’s not bothered that, while I’m quite happy to help him, I’m also a person who builds things quite poorly. So poorly in fact that the Le...

Bacon: Enter the Hanger Zone

I’m a vegetarian. So putting bacon on everything is a strange experience for me. And I mean…everything. Cookbooks, inspirational quotes, money, hairdryers, Kevin Bacon…the list goes on. Little indie company Kamibox is responsible for bringing us such a weird and oddly-satisfying experience. Baco...

Zero Sum: Making Math Fun. And Weird.

If you love numbers and bad B-movies, there’s no finer candidate for your game library than Zero Sum. Actually, I take that back. You don’t even have to like numbers. I am a prime example of this. Can’t remember own age? Check. Uses fingers and toes to count stuff? Check. Thinks the number...

Survisland – The hardest survival game in 2018, they say

Imagine.. You wake up lying on a beach on a deserted island. All you have is a pair of jeans and a tshirt. Fortunately the sun is shining, but you see dark clouds looming. You’re hungry and night is approaching. You check your vitals, everything seems okay, but you’re tired. You see a coconut pa...

Donut County: It’s Full of Holes (Good Ones)

If Donut County was an art piece, it would probably be something like Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans. It’s kitschy, offbeat, feels familiar and yet has enough surprise moments that either lead to a “wtf” or a “lol”. Looking up trailers of what Donut County is ab...

5 Things You Can Do in Spider-Man!

If you haven’t yet grabbed yourself a copy of Spider-Man then it’s probably because you don’t own a PS4, and for that I will bestow you with a moment of silence. … If you do, however, own the only platform you can play this amazing game on and have not managed to get your hands on it...
