Fly in the House is an independent First Person Shooter style Action Simulator by developer EmkeyGame (Mykhail Konokh), who was responsible for 2014’s Inside the Gear. Unlike that physics-based puzzler, this new outing finds you doing what we all find to be one of the most frustrating events in our lives: Killing a fly that somehow got inside. It’s a small game that has been picked up by KISS Ltd. for digital distribution in March of this year. But is this follow-up outing worth the price, or is it far more infuriating than the real thing happens to be?
In recent years, debating on-line in the name of “justice” has not only become a norm throughout the internet, but has also become the center of hot button topics in pop culture and news organizations. Of course, it was only a matter of time before someone tackled the concept of keyboard warriors and turned it into a game. Enter: Social Justice Warriors. Nonadecimal Creative present this casual independent RPG/Simulation title that pits one of these social justice individuals against hordes of trolls looking to wreak havoc in r/. You are the voice of sanity in this offering, but if is as positive a message about society today, or does it just paint itself to be nobler than thou in the most insulting of ways possible?
MorningStar: Descent to Deadrock is one of the latest point-and-click adventures to hit the PC/Steam marketplace. However, this independent title is one that may very well sneak under many a fan of the genre’s radar. It was developed by the relatively new studio Red Herring Labs (Nocran Space), which was then picked up for distribution through Phoenix Online Studios. The game itself is touted as being in the category of “Atmospheric First Person”, placing you in a nightmarish struggle to escape an alien planet in one piece. It also happens to be a remastered version of the older PC title MorningStar. But does this updated entry stand as a good modern take on the style, or is it nothing more than recycled cliche’s that are far from enjoyable?
Among Ripples is the product of a student project from a two-man team that went on to form Eat Create Sleep Studios. The title, an aquatic simulator of sorts, has been receiving plenty of praise since it was first made available to download for free on-line through Google Play, Desura, and most recently Steam. But, with such an immense opportunity for the duo’s debut, does this outing hold your attention, or is it an underwhelming experience?
Spoiler Alert is a PC and Mobile title that claims its gameplay tests your platforming skills. Developed by Megafuzz and distributed through tinyBuild, this game had recently dropped on the Steam marketplace as a collector’s edition. However, it wasn’t until recently that a standard edition of the game had become available at a reduced cost. But does this indie title end up a brilliant “comedy” entry, or is it nothing more than a running gimmick that goes on for way too long?
