The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands – Review and Gameplay Videos

The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands By: Xigma Games As someone who liked the idea of Raw Fury's Kingdom: New Lands more than actually playing it, I was still very much looking forward to Xigma Games' The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands.

Art Club Challenge: Gameplay Video and Impressions

Art Club Challenge By: Polytundra LLC As someone who minored in art in college, the idea of a game that tries to mimic an art class appealed to me. I like the concept, and it's interesting how Polytundra's Art Club Challenge forces you to use a very limited palette of four colors and only squares and rectangles to make your art.

‘Meteorfall: Journey’ Review: Swipe Right to Fight

Meteorfall: Journey By: Eric Farraro (Slothwerks) I spent so much time playing Asmodee Digital's solitaire card game, Onirim, in 2017, and it made me eager to seek out other games that are accessible and easy to play at any moment, but that require some tough choices weighing risk versus reward. Slothwerks' Meteorfall: Journey is the latest of these games and it combines the binary decision-making of Reigns with dungeon crawling. In Meteorfall,…
