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.

It has even been considered as worthy of preservation by the Academy Foundation (those people who hand out the Oscars), and received a couple of sequels too. Early animation was crazy. Marv Newland went on to make a lot more animated films and series (including some in the..

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..
