Enter iiyama: a leading international monitor manufacturer, based in Japan (the land of manga, anime, Space Invaders and Nintendo – NBD).
Producing high-end technology products since as early as 1973, they decided to write a new chapter in every hardcore gamers wet dreams phantasy. And yes, we have them in our Game Room and at those monthly FIFA tournaments.

  • Support of FreeSync Technology ensuring fluid and accurate transition between those crispy images
  • Black Tuner functionality, allowing gamers to adjust brightness and dark shades, so you can see what might be creeping up on you in those dark corners.
  • Predefined and custom gaming modes to quickly adjust settings to your own preferences

Submachine: A Game Series for Adventurers

You are alone in a basement. And you need to get out. Simple, eh? Maybe not. What begun as just one entry by Mateusz Skutnik, became a fan-favourite series in the indie game scene, especially for the lovers of adventure games. The player needs to use items in an “escape room” environment to solve puzzles and find their way out of the basement they are trapped in. At the same time, despite the lack of other characters, you constantly have a feeling that you are not alone. Add to that the use of ambient music (à la “Myst” series), and you make this a game (and subsequent series) a timeless, atmospheric experience. The series started in  mid-00’s, and slowly the creator would release new entries every now and..

Bambi Meets Godzilla. Yes, Really.

When you think of classic animation, what comes to mind first? Probably, iconic movies such as The Lion King or Toy Story, right? But what about another animation classic, Bambi Meets Godzilla.

The plot is very simple: Bambi (yes, the deer) is just chilling, when suddenly he gets stepped by Godzilla. That’s it. The 90-second long clip is absurd, hilarious, but also innovative for its time.

Marv Newland went on to make a lot more animated films and series (including some in the..

But what is the price you need to pay if you are looking for Steam’s most expensive single, standalone game? Well, one of the newest games available on the platform, The Hidden and Unknown goes for a whooping 1.949,09€! No, your eyes are not deceiving you. The game was developed by ProX, a person or studio (we are not sure) famous for bringing you…eh…The Hidden and Unknown. That’s it. That is the only game they have ever released on Steam. We haven’t played the game (obviously), but there are some walkthroughs on YouTube about..
