Alcudia by Dukebot – https://dukebot.itch.io/alcudia A unique pharmaceutical nightmare mixing Cronenberg (a little Brandon and a little David) with charming pixel art. I was really impressed by how different the style was from Dukebot previous title Blue Sunday while maintaining a similar sensibility. Burger and Frights by Donitz – https://donitz.itch.io/burger-frights A Bike-riding Groundhog Day in Hell […]

Steam Backlog Back In 1995 by Throw the warped code out – https://store.steampowered.com/app/433380/Back_in_1995/ Back In 1995 was the precursor of that PS1-era horror revival but totally skipped on it. The initial charm didn’t have the same effect as if I had played it when it was released, but the experience of Back In 1995 goes […]
