Kontrakt (Schizophrenic Hitman Adrenaline Slaughter)

  I was always fascinated by the hitman life, or is it better to say hit-person? Anyway it's not like I know a hitperson or anything but that total disregard for the line between life and death must be a dark place. And for a morality-crushing, dark video game, playing such a creature as the […]

Defense: Abominations (First-Person Survival Turret Chaos)

Defense: Abominations (First-Person Survival Turret Chaos)

  You know, when I first caught some pics of Defense: Abominations I expected an entry-level first-person shooter (FPS) effort from some Eastern European cyberflunk who can barely hack his own email. What I found was more of a mid-grade network spy who can almost hack this site's email but gives up because he's in the middle of programming […]

Witch Hunt (First-Person Flintlock Horror Pursuit)

  Boy I struggled to figure out some sort of synonym for 'hunt' to title this, and 'pursuit' is all I had for today, but it's rather fitting for Witch Hunt. I wish I was a bit smarter while writing this, but I've had a long month of job interviews, conferences, and things other than playing […]

Graveyard Keeper (Cemetery Sim That Puts You Into An Early Grave)

Graveyard Keeper (Cemetery Sim That Puts You Into An Early Grave)

  See how clever this site is with colloquialisms? I took that "early grave" idiom and applied it to this game right here about cemeteries! So clever! More clever than Graveyard Keeper, in fact, as much as that fact pulls the bones from my body and places them in the wrong tomb. That's right, I'm not going […]

My Big Sister (Soul-Crushing Reality-Infused Ghost Adventure)

My Big Sister (Soul-Crushing Reality-Infused Ghost Adventure)

  There's been a surge in 16-bit styled games in the indie market, usually of the RPG variety since Squaresoft worship will never die. Was The Secret of Mana really that good? Remember one of the bosses was Santa Claus? Yeah, forget that game. Of course they released some pretty stellar titles otherwise, but were only one of several […]

The Evil – S/T (Non-Evil, Mask-Wearing Doom Metal)

The Evil – S/T (Non-Evil, Mask-Wearing Doom Metal)

  I saw the masks and I wanted to enjoy this thoroughly. The cover, by Fernando Drowned of The Most Destructive Art, had me mask-loving, But, as it turns out I only enjoyed the music partially. There's something less threatening about doomers wearing masks on stage than you find with blackened death metal or black […]

Construct of Lethe – Exiler (Pretentious Thesaurus Metal)

Construct of Lethe – Exiler (Pretentious Thesaurus Metal)

  So here’s the thing, Construct of Lethe know exactly what they are doing musically. And by that, I mean they have such a refined ear for composition, recording, and compelling melody. They don’t just stop at the melodic death metal drudge and drear and are clearly interested in pushing their sound into a musically […]

Taina – Seelenfresser (Industrial Metal Still Tries Lol)

Taina – Seelenfresser (Industrial Metal Still Tries Lol)

  I should have known before I started. Taina, I'm sorry, Seelenfresser was set to sprint, but it tripped immediately, shaken by the poof of the starting pistol. The 1990s are gone, friends, though we still worship them when we forget. What we tend to forget is the parts we actually aren't nostalgic for at all. Here's a […]

DE·TA·US·TO·AS – The Immaculate Triumvirate (Sexy Death Industrial)

DE·TA·US·TO·AS – The Immaculate Triumvirate (Sexy Death Industrial)

  The Immaculate Triumvirate by DE·TA·US·TO·AS, bedecked with the photographic mastery of Eva Paià, is not the unholy see of Roman Emperor Gods that I had let wreak havoc upon the middle ages but, rather, a duo of Catalonian shades which impart my dark wisdom upon provincials. In "As Above So Below," the shades bring […]

Deluded Mind (First-Person Asylum Drug Romp)

Deluded Mind (First-Person Asylum Drug Romp)

  My first thought on anything trying to frighten me using an asylum setting is one big looooooool I don't feel like writing. Whoops. Deluded Mind came up rather randomly while I was searching for another scray [sic] video game to review and I have to tell you it was not the theme that drew me to […]
