Dragonflame Game Review (prepublished version)

You have finally come of age. Your wings are strong, your dragon flame burns like the sun, and your teeth are as sharp as a thousand swords. Now you must make a name for yourself and spread fear and panic across the realm. There are castles to attack, knights to eat, treasure to hoard, and maidens to collect. The only problem is that there are other dragons with the same idea and there are only so many maidens to be had.

Sushi Go! Game Review

Sushi has been referred to as “art” and “dead uncooked fish on rice”. It’s both, if the truth be told. Some visibly turn green when asked if they would like a bite and others just cannot eat enough. Regardless of which extreme you tend to lean towards, sushi is best in moderation. Pick your pieces with thoughtful consideration and take the time to enjoy each bite. Then, devour the pudding!

Legends and Lies: The Skeptic Game Expansion Review

When so-called “experts” present something as fact, most people blindly believe what they are told. But not you. You have always been skeptical of anyone who tells you to believe anything with little evidence to back up their claims. Some say that being too big a skeptic could lead to unhealthy suspicion and paranoia, but that’s crazy talk. It’s always better to be on guard. You’ll be damned if the giant alien hedgehogs from Beta Alpha Prime take over the world on your watch!

This House is Haunted Game Review

You couldn’t believe your luck when your dream home was on the market for such a low price. You suspected some sort of foundation or plumbing problem, but the house inspection came back with an “A+” rating. You purchased the home and moved in a few days later. A week after, strange things started to happen. Doors would open by themselves, keys would go missing, and the cat wouldn’t go into a certain rooms. You didn’t believe in ghosts, so it never bothered you. But when the blood started dripping from the walls and the smell of decay hung heavy in the air, you changed your mind. You have gathered a group of friends to help you purge whatever evil dwells in the house once and for all. Come dawn, either you will live in your dream home or something else will.
