TN’s Indie Impressions – Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Koji Igarashi is the creator and progenitor of the Metroidvania genre, all thanks to his original creation Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. However, Konami didnt want to fund another one of those, so Iga just said screw it, and made his own new world. That world, and game, is Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. Is this the SOTN successor everyone wanted?

Well, lets see how it stacks up!

This was January’s Patreon Choice Voted Game!

TN’s Indie Impressions (EA) – Monster Sanctuary

Ever wonder what would happen if you took the concept of Pokemon (ie catching monsters and fighting with em), and combined that with the gameplay and exploration of Metroid? No?

Well someone did, and that developer is behind the game Monster Sanctuary. A game about being a member of the Keeper Order, a group tasked with keeping the monster population in check by building their own bonds with monsters, and fighting them against the wild ones.

Is this idea executed well? Watch and learn!

TN’s Indie Impressions – Knightin+

Sometimes a simple quick game is all you really want or need. Sometimes a call back to nostalgia is a perfect balm to soothe the soul. Sometimes you just want to kill things, take their stuff, and not bother with story or plot.
Knightin+ covers all of that with its cute 16bit pixel art, its simple but engaging gameplay, and its devious puzzles. While the game frustrated me (the optional puzzles are brutal) I can still recommend it to those who want something cheap and fun to play. So join Sir Lootsalot on his quest for cold hard cash!

TN’s Indie Impressions – Warsim

I love a good text based / ASCII romp, and when the developer of this game contacted me via email and kindly asked me to take a look, well I could hardly say no.
So here we are, playing the weirdly named game “Warsim” which really should be called “Kingsim” since its kingdom management not war management. But hey, its a fun odd game if you can handle the visuals (ie the TEXT)

Steeped in Greek Mythology with some unique spins on classical characters, how does Hades hold up in the world of Early Access? Does it need to cook longer in the fires of the Phlegethon or is it worth paying the boatman to cross the river Styx and play? Lets find out together!

TN’s Indie Impressions – Felix the Reaper

Today I wish to DANCE! As an agent of the Department of Death, its Felix’s job to make sure people die right on schedule. And he does it with flair, style, and panache! But me? Well, I am horrible at this game, as I am most hardcore puzzle games, and thus havent gotten a single gold star at all. Is Felix the Reaper worth letting int your heart though? Will you help him find love with Betty from the Department of Life? Only you know the answer to that.
