Emily Is Away Too Interview — Solo Developer Discusses Recapturing Original’s Charm

on June 24, 2017 3:00 PM

We chat with developer Kyle Seeley about his recently released PC, Mac, and Linux game, Emily is Away Too, what's next for the developer, and much more.


Back on November 20, 2015 lone-wolf developer Kyle Seeley released Emily Is Away, an interactive story presented through a chat client on Windows XP, mimicking to a T the style and feel of early 2000's AOL Instant messenger. At the outset, things were pretty quiet as the game launched. But after a few select quick plays from various outlets and YouTubers, the game picked up some steam, and by the end of 2015 Emily is Away carved a substantial piece of the industry's mind space....

Why does it always feel North America gets an inferior Limited Edition from Nintendo of America, when compared to Nintendo of Europes' release of the same game.


Despite a terrific year for the Metroid series, Metroid fans in one of the most prominent gaming markets are (rightfully) feeling a tad jaded. Following Nintendo's E3 2017 direct, a remake of Metroid II: Return of Samus was announced titled Metroid: Samus Returns for the Nintendo 3DS on September 15....

Ever Oasis Review — A Refreshing Experience in the Summer Heat

Ever Oasis Review — A Refreshing Experience in the Summer Heat

on June 23, 2017 1:18 PM

Ever Oasis is able to blend oasis management and Zelda-esque action-adventure gameplay together to create one the 3DS' new standout experiences, proving that the six year old handheld still has some juice left in it.


Ever since it was revealed during Nintendo Treehouse Live at E3 2016, Ever Oasis seems to have gone under the radar, with little anticipation noticeable among the Nintendo fandom. Nevertheless, Ever Oasis remained one of my most anticipated Nintendo games this year. The title looked like a unique mix of city building and Zelda-esque action adventure gameplay and it has all with the charm of Secret of Mana -- a point that makes sense given that this game was made by the director of that ...

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Interview — Koji Igarashi on Being the Face and Name of a Genre

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Interview — Koji Igarashi on Being the Face and Name of a Genre

by

on June 23, 2017 12:01 PM

During E3 2017, we were able to sit down with legendary game developer Koji Igarashi to discuss modern game development and the current build of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.


Koji Igarashi has been a notable name to fans of the Castlevania franchise for almost twenty years. From Symphony of the Night to Harmony of Dissonance, Igarashi served as one of the main creative minds behind the vampire-laden series until his departure from Konami in March of 2014. Of course, Igarashi couldn't sit on the sidelines too long and in May of 2015 launched a Kickstarter to raise money for his new project -- a Castlevania spiritual successor called Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night....

God Wars: Future Past Review — A Deep SRPG For Veterans of the Genre

Kadokawa Games is giving the SRPG genre another go with God Wars: Future Past, but does it pay off?


Every year there are times when I just want to play a great SRPG that gives me the same feeling that I had when playing any of the genre's classics. To be in love with this genre, one needs to learn to settle for titles that contain small things that you might not enjoy. Such as in 2014, when developer Kadokawa Games released Natural Doctrine on the PS4 and PS Vita, a 3D SRPG that boasted high difficulty and knowledge of tactical gameplay. Sadly, the game didn't do so well in the west, criticized for a nonuser friendly UI and a subpar story....
