The title of Natsume’s latest Harvest Moon — One World — could be taken as ironic. The series had a split-up between its publisher and developer a few years ago, which is unlikely to ever be resolved. The series began in Japan on the Super NES under the title “Story
Goblinz Studio’s reverse dungeon crawler Legend of Keepers was launched last spring for PC and consoles. Six months later, it’s about to receive its first DLC pack, Return of the Goddess. What do we mean by “reverse dungeon crawler”? Well, in most roguelite games, you enter a dungeon, uncover treasure,
Doublethink Games has announced their bullet hell game, Good Knight, will be released this fall on Steam. The concept behind Good Knight is simple: just survive.
