Preview: Bleak Sword DX

When I saw that Devolver was publishing another nostalgic 8-bit inspired game, I must admit it caught my attention. I’ve generally been a huge fan of the games they support such as last year’s Cult of the Lamb, and I’m always a sucker for games with a strong aesthetic choice. So, of course I had

Review: Cult of the Lamb

Last month we previewed Cult of the Lamb and I left off eager to see how its combination of roguelike dungeon crawling and base building held up in the full game. Now that I’ve had a chance to sit down with it properly, it’s time to see where it’s held up and where cracks have

Preview: Cult of the Lamb

It’s not often that I love a game at first glance, but I’ve always been a fan of that “dark cute” aesthetic. Of taking absolutely cute and saccharine critters and putting them in a situation that’s more than a little bit messed up. That contrast of something that wouldn’t look out of place in a

Review: Trek to Yomi

In March, I had the chance to play the opening pair of chapters from Trek to Yomi, an action game developed by Leonard Menchiari and Flying Wild Hog with Devolver Digital taking up publishing duties. It acts as a love letter to Japanese cinema of the 1950s and 60s, an appreciation that clearly led to

Review: Weird West

Few games have been as much of a roller coaster for me as Weird West. What first caught my attention was the developer, Wolfeye Studios, being made of former Arkane Studios developers. Weird West is also an immersive sim just like Arkane’s previous titles Dishonored and Prey, but this time departing from the usual first-person

Preview: Trek to Yomi

The melding of videos games and cinema is a tall order. It’s a difficult fusion that developers the world over have attempted to reach from the moment that games became something more than simple shapes sliding across a black background, and to varying degrees of success. Trek to Yomi, a game in development by Leonard

Review: Shadow Warrior 3

While Devolver Digital is known for publishing everything from the quiet and emotional Gris to the gory and violent Carrion, the publishing studio itself is known for having a snarky, off-kilter sense of humor. Watching any of their E3 “press conferences” is a quick way to see what the studio is about (and a rabbit

Preview: Weird West

If you’ve been a semi-casual Gamer Escape reader this past summer (which you should be, duh), you’ve probably come across our past coverage of Weird West, a top-down cel-shaded action RPG developed by some of the core staff behind Arkane Studios and games such as Dishonored. Published by Devolver Digital, it drew me in since

Review: Inscryption

I’ve never really been much into tabletop card games. If you don’t count the couple years in college I lost my life to Magic: The Gathering, that is (and I don’t remember much of that time, considering that was right around when I turned 21…). Setting that specific time aside, tabletop card games just never

Weird West is Sleek, Stylish, and Set for Success

When Weird West was first announced at The Game Awards 2019, I was cautiously optimistic. An action RPG developed by the collective headed by the original creators of Dishonored and Arkane Studios, all while being published by Devolver Digital? It sounded way, way too good to be true.

You get to run around as an adorable crow slaying monsters ten times your size with a glowing red sword, do I REALLY need to say anymore? But if that sentence failed to convince you, allow me to regale you with the my full experience for Death’s Door, releasing July 20, 2021 for Xbox systems

Preview: Boomerang X

Is it possible to fall in love with a difficulty curve? One of my favorite things about games is how different they can feel from start to finish, how things that seemed hard become trivial and what was once impossible is within your grasp. I had a chance to sit down with Boomerang X, a

Review: Loop Hero

Hello readers, I am back with the follow-up to our preview of Loop Hero – a now-released title which brings some new stuff to the table for the roguelite genre. I wrote then about how well-crafted the experience was. Now that the game has graduated from Early Access, and is now a full release for

Review: Olija

It’s always refreshing to review a game that isn’t trying to be anything other than itself. There’s more to discuss when it comes to Olija, of course, but one of the things that struck me early on was the fact that, unlike all too many games that are attempting a spin on X formula or

Have you ever spent time playing an RPG-type game and you felt like you were stuck going around in circles? Well, I have some good news, because today we have a case where not only is going around in circles a good thing, it’s central to the game mechanics. Loop Hero, developed by Four Quarters

Review: Disc Room

What kind of creatures would drive you to the brink of insanity? Giant squids the size of a house? Cthulhu itself rising from the depths to break your mind? A housecat whose piercing gaze cuts through to your very soul? According to a team of indie developers, none of the above. Rather, they envision a

Review: Serious Sam 4

It should come as no surprise to most that the focus in the first-person shooter space lately has primarily been multiplayer. In between the dearth of countless battle royales on top of the already pervasive kill/death and objective-based multiplayer offerings, choosing to focus on a single player experience often seems like an afterthought.

Preview: Blightbound

Today on the docket we have for you a sneak peek at an interesting dungeon-crawler-type game by the name of Blightbound, published by Devolver Digital and developed by Ronimo Games. This tough-as-nails game is multiplayer-only (three players, local or online), so I had to enlist some help from two fellow members of the Gamer Escape

Review: Carrion

Have you ever watched a horror movie and found yourself rooting for the murderer/stalker/creature killing all of the main characters? Perhaps the characters you’re “supposed” to cheer on are all unlikable…or maybe you just enjoy watching buckets of blood being poured on your screen. Well then boy howdy do I have the game for you!

Review: Sludge Life

I’m no stranger to weird and offbeat media. Sometimes it can be nonsensical as hell, sometimes it makes pointed statements in very unconventional ways, and sometimes it just wants to exist in its own vibe. While I wouldn’t say that games centered around graffiti are something that’s flooding the market, the ones I have come
