Land Air Sea Warfare Coming to Android from Indie Developer Isotope 244!

I loved Machines at War 3 for both Mac and iPad from Isotope 244, an indie developer known for making classic real-time strategy games for desktop and mobile. That game followed Land Air Sea Warfare, which was the sequel to Machines at War. LASW released for computers and iPad in 2010, and is now coming to Android on March 11!

The Ghost Archives: Haunting of Shady Valley Brings Chills to the Mac!

When I reviewed The Ghost Archives: Haunting of Shady Valley last year I said the basis of the story is fairly typical for the genre but the game wrapped around it is fun and engaging.

Whenever I see a game like Tulpa, I go back several years when it seemed the small developer was gone, that everything was headed to AAA games on consoles.

Supreme League of Patriots Brings Zany Episodic Humour to PC Gamers!

It is ironic that I started playing Grim Fandango as I was writing up this review. Why? Because it allowed me to compare this game with one of the absolute classics of the genre. The revitalized adventure game genre provides plenty of comparisons, and allowed me to see both good and not so good elements in Supreme League of Patriots.

Apparently ‘soon’ means 28 months, as Runic games announced a February 2nd release in a funny video.
