Rebel Inc: Escalation (Early Access) Review

Rebel Inc: Escalation Ndemic Creations I’ve never played Ndemic Creations’ previous game, Plague Inc., which was about crafting deadly pathogens and then releasing them upon the world. It did look interesting though. It sure became a cult hit and lingered at the top of several charts for lengthy periods of time. But that game came…

Atom RPGAtomTeam Like all classic role-playing games, post-apocalyptic CRPGs seem to be more of a rare occurrence than in their heyday during the 1980s and 90s. As both first-person shooters and massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) became more popular, the classic style of top-down, turn-based (or pause-able real-time) titles seem to lose favor with…

A small, Italian development…

War of Rights (Early Access) Review – A Unique Departure from the Usual FPS’s

War of Rights Campfire Games With World War One film, 1917, just around the corner, it’s good to see the Great War getting some attention, instead of WW2.
