Spiritfarer Review - When Death Rhymes With Poetry

After Jotun and Sundered, Thunder Lotus Games returns this time with a third game called: Spiritfarer . Announced as a sweet management game about death, the title had something to arouse curiosity, but is a concept alone is not enough to make a good game. Let's see what has to offer this adventure much calmer but above all much more intimate than its predecessors. So I decided to test the game on a standard PlayStation 4 over approximately 30 hours of play with English subtitles. Although a French version is already available on Steam for those fellow French Canadians and Europeans of course, it will only arrive on consoles in the days/weeks to come, while the update is validated by the various manufacturers. To infinity and beyond Spiritfarer , this is your new function. After a brief introduction telling you that you will have to accompany the spirits on their way to the next world, you are let loose aboard a special boat that only you can operate. What strikes you from the firs

Spelunky 2 Review - An Abysmal Exploration In The Gaming Arena

Yes, Spelunky 2 is finally here, and now not only you will be able to play it on PC, but on PS4 as well! I have to say that I've been waiting for it for such a long time. In fact, I've been waiting for that game since the first appearance back in 2018, mainly after the launch of a mini-trailer that showed almost nothing but except for the title of the game. But since then, the publisher and developer Mossmouth, in partnership with Blitwork, have distilled the information on this game and they just did it very sparingly. The game has been available since September 15 for PlayStation 4, and will soon be available on steam and all other media as well.  Spelunky 2 is absolutely a must-have. A legitimate and perfectly mastered sequel to the best 2D platformer of all time. As in the first Spelunky released, (that was back then in June 2012), the story is quite anecdotal, a pretext like in a Mario, where you can live an extraordinary fun adventure. So if we remember in the first ver

Spelunky 2: Last Straight Line For Development, With Some Images As A Bonus

Originally released in 2008 on PC, remade in 2012 on Xbox 360, ported in 2013 on PS4 and PSVita then finally in 2014 on PS4, the first Spelunky had a long life and became a successful title.

Which Classic Video Game Character Are You?

It's amazing to see how far video games have come. If we go back to the '80s, no one could imagine how some video games started. In fact, they started with just an idea in mind with a bunch of animated pixels called sprites. These sprites, however, also include some of our best characters. For example, from Duncky Konk The Mario franchise was born. Just think about Mario Bros and even Super Mario Bros games. What about Zelda and even Sonic? We all know these characters since our childhood, and 30 years later those characters also evaluate with the technology.  Everyone's favorite portly plumber used to look like a pointy-nosed old man. Now he looks like a well-defined mustachioed hero. Character's like Princess Zelda, Kirby, and even Lara Croft, saw the same treatment. But what if you were one of those characters? Witch of the classic video game character are you? I know this iss crazy to think about that, but if we take a moment we will find that retro and classic

Are 2D Games Still Popular in 2020?

In 2020, the video game industry is full of new releases. Whatever if you are a game designer working for a 3A game company, or even if you are just an indy game developer, chances are you probably ask this question yourself: are 2D games still popular in 2020? The answer might surprising because actually 2D games are more popular than ever before starting with the retrogaming industry. Thankfully, 2D gaming later saw a resurgence in the industry,  and with most of these AAA series receiving 2D (or at least 2.5D) entries. Just think of these popular indie games like Nuclear Throne, Hyper Light Drifter, and also Super Meat Boy! Those 2D video games pave the way forward for what was nearly a lost art. Even if some blockbusters like Red Dead Redemption 2, Fortnite, and Overwatch seems to dominate the market, there will always be a place for 2D pixel art somehow. We have to remember that a video game is still an electronic game that involves interaction with a user interface to generate v
