Review: NeverAwake

It’s October, and you know what that means! It’s time to splash just a little bit of horror into all of our favorite things. That and pumpkin spice, but that’s not important right now. Today we’re looking at NeverAwake, a nightmarish twin-stick shooter by developer Neotro Inc and published by Phoenixx, where you help a

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: Card Shark

I’ve never been what one would call an avid card game player. Sure, I know which hands beat what in poker, I can count for blackjack, and I’ve bluffed my way through a game of sheepshead or two. But I have no idea if holding out for a flush is wise and I’ve never known

Review: Godlike Burger

I’m always a bit intrigued when developers combine two genres, especially when it involves adding combat to a genre not known for it. I’ve seen combat farming sims, combat typing tutors, combat visual novels, but this is probably the first time I’ve seen combat as the core part of a restaurant sim. In hindsight I’m

During these, he talked about the challenges of creating a handheld, recent industry news and trends and even mentioned his own journey into Final Fantasy XIV.

Review: The Waylanders

While I’ve played many RPGs, I can’t say I’ve played many based specifically Celtic mythology. So I was rather intrigued to explore this mythological realm in The Waylanders (released out of Early Access for Steam on February 2, 2022), one that I have not had nearly as much experience with as most other RPGs I’ve

Review: The VII Enigma

Is anyone else tired of some modern games not being able to put forth clear narratives? I recently experienced this with The Good Life, SWERY’s newest title, and now find myself in the same boat with The VII Enigma, a character-driven sci-fi mystery visual novel developed and published on PC via Steam by Spire Games.

Preview: Infernax

I’m one of those “90s kids” that grew up with games of the 8-bit and 16-bit generations. I have a lot of nostalgia both for the art style and game design of that era, and I am absolutely LOVING the resurgence of retro throwbacks. The latest in this trend is Infernax, a monster-packed side-scrolling action

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
