Atom RPG: Trudograd Preview

Atom RPG: TrudogradAtomTeam Isometric, Post-apocalyptic games used to be much more popular in the past. Throughout the 90s on up to the early 2000s, gamers were blessed with all manner of games within the genre, some good…and some not so good. Although this genre has ebbed in recent years, it seems to have been making…

Last Oasis (Early Access) Review

Last OasisDonkey Crew Survival games, especially ones of the post-apocalyptic variety, seem to be a dime-a-dozen these days. H1Z1 and the Arma 2 modded version of DayZ kicked everything off and ever since then, we’ve seen the release of an entire plethora of post-apocalyptic titles. These include Rust, the standalone version of DayZ, Miscreated, and…

Atom RPG Review – A Brilliant Love Letter to the Classics

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…

DayZ Review – A Serviceable, Sometimes Great, Zombie-pocalypse Title

DayZ Bohemia Interactive There are so many genres that have risen and fallen within the gaming world. For instance, fighting games became formulaic and stopped evolving a long time ago.

Metro Exodus Review – A Gritty Lens into a Post-Apocalyptic Masterwork

Metro Exodus 4A Games Battle Royale games have obviously become solid gold, at least the upper tier titles. It seems like every time I turn around, some gaming developers are desperately trying to cobble together digitized offerings that they hope will capture the hearts and minds of the gaming masses the way PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds did.…

Miscreated Review – Miscreated’s 1.0 Update Finally Creeps onto Steam

Miscreated Endnight Games I began as everyone does on Miscreated’s fictional Orca Island—with nothing except for the clothes on my back and a flashlight. As I wound my way through a dense forest, I foraged for some supplies and fashioned a make-shift backpack so that I could store more items within my rather limited starting…

They Are Billions (Early Access) Review – Not Just Another Zombie Game

They Are Billions Numantian Games When I’d first caught drift of indie developer, Numantian Games’ They Are Billions, I was sort of just “meh.” Although it aspired to be a sort of combination of Starcraft and World War Z, the whole zombie craze has pretty much already worn out its welcome. Really now—how many times…

7 Days to Die Review – One of the Better Zombie Games Left Out There

7 Days to Die The Fun Pimps Zombies have long been a part of the general public’s collective consciousness ever since the 1950s. Along with werewolves, fairies, ghosts and goblins, vampires, and such, they never really struck me as being particularly scary in any way, shape, or form. Now if we’re talking some type of…
