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: Aragami 2

A short while ago we previewed Aragami 2, the sequel to the 2016 indie stealth action game Aragami, seeing what had changed from the original and what we were looking forward to. However, that preview left a few burning questions, so we just had to take the opportunity to look at the final release. Aragami

Review: Fuga: Melodies of Steel

Never before have I felt both so excited and so afraid to review a title before. The latest in the Little Tail Bronx series of loosely connected games, I’ve been a fan of the series for some time now. However, I also knew the story would absolutely break my heart. It’s a tale of vengeance,

Preview: Death’s Door

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

Review: Dark Deity

When it comes to the Fire Emblem franchise, there’s a hard cut-off point between the entries fans consider “classic and hardcore” and “modern and casual:” Fire Emblem Awakening. According to some of the fanbase, after Awakening, the franchise lost some of the elements that drew in its original base in exchange for bringing in a

Review: Resident Evil Village

With the release of Resident Evil 7 back in 2017, Capcom once again sought to redefine what a Resident Evil experience could be. The series went from an over-the-shoulder third-person view that continues to be an influence to this day, into a first-person perspective that became the talk of the town when Hideo Kojima’s P.T./Silent

First Impressions: The Sekimeiya: Spun Glass

Of the “classics” one is expected to play in order to consider themselves a “real visual novel fan,” one that is often mentioned to this day is Ever17: Out of Infinity. It’s easy to see why; aside from the fact it was one of the first “real” visual novels to be released in English, it’s

Blink Through Life in Before Your Eyes

Controlling a game through body movements is nothing new. Hell, remember the Kinect? Using a camera to translate motions into gameplay is hardly novel…but what matters more is how these inputs are actually put to use. Enter GoodbyeWorld Games, a Los Angeles-based indie collective preparing to launch a title controlled by blinking your eyes. Before

Review: Disjunction

I seem to be on a bit of a retro kick, following hot in the footsteps of our preview of Loop Hero with another retro styled title. This time we seem to be effectively moving from a mid-80s style to an early-90’s style with today’s game, Disjunction, developed by Ape Tribe Games, for most major

Review: Gods Will Fall

Gods Will Gall, the single-player hack and slash, dungeon crawler, dark fantasy action-RPG developed by Clever Beans, was first brought to my attention at an event I attended in late 2020. At that time, I remember thinking that if the game could deliver on the promises made by its creators, it would be a very

Tired of Gods? So Are the Warriors in Gods Will Fall

The 21st century has revolutionized the way we play video games. Titles like Mass Effect and The Witcher III have shown us what is possible when you give players a role in the development of their stories, and what it means to have those choices come with consequences. But what if unlike Mass Effect, you

Review: Chronos: Before the Ashes

Chronos was an oddball title when first released: A third-person action game released on a VR console. It’s now been released in a more accessible format for everyone who may have missed it the first time around. Released December 1st, 2020 for PC via Steam by Gunfire Games, Chronos: Before the Ashes is a remake

Preview: Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy

Despite being newer to the series, I feel confident in saying that the Atelier games are a good representation of what modern JRPGs have become. As a person who grew up playing the classic entries of this genre, though, I’m not yet sure how I feel about the changes of modern entries. However, it was

Preview: Zelter

Here I am again! Coming to talk to you about another survival crafter. This time we have something a little different. Zelter from G1 Playground is by far the cutest zombie apocalypse I have ever participated in. It is Stardew Valley gone to Hell and, if I am being honest, is something I have wanted

Review: 9 Monkeys of Shaolin

I have some fond memories of playing the wide range of beat-’em-up games available in the arcades in the late 1980s and early 90s. Some of my favorites of the arcade era being the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game, X-Men and The Simpsons. These all boiled down to being incredibly simple; just walk from

Review: Cave Digger

To what extent do the controls make the game? Just because a game can be ported over to another system, does it mean it should? This is what I pondered while trying out Cave Digger, originally released for VR systems by Mekiwi and out now for standard PC play on Steam. Digging Yourself Deeper Gameplay

Preview: Fallen Angel

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Matrioshka Games’ Fallen Angel, a top-down adventure game that, for better or worse, is a mix of nostalgic elements from yesteryear combined with newer design philosophies. Right from the word go, it’s clear they’re going for a nostalgic aesthetic. The graphics are detailed pixel-art and, while

Preview: Big Farm Story

Big Farm Story is something I would… hesitate to call a game. Despite being released to the public as a playable early access game, it’s devoid of content and feels more like a prototype than anything. I’ve done previews of games that were still in Early Access before, and I’m no stranger to the idea

Review: Skully

There’s something to be said for expectations in a game. When I was approached to review Skully, I had been expecting something along the lines of your usual kid-friendly colorful platformer. Explore a variety of themed worlds, use abilities in different ways to traverse the levels, beat some baddies and do some light platforming. A

Review: Fairy Tail

Some games are really tough to review coming in from the outside. Case in point? Fairy Tail. Much like when I reviewed Gensou Skydrift, I am aware walking into this particular situation that this is material adapting a well-known and well-loved shonen manga. Fairy Tail is based quite directly on a manga that had an
