Finding a Shiny Guantlet

Welcome Time Wasters! This week I searched around until I discovered a game in development called Shiny Gauntlet. The protagonist of the game is a spirit that is trying to escape a dungeon. Shiny Gauntlet is an indie game that has rouge-like elements to it. The game drops players in a randomly-generated, unlit dungeon and has them run around as different classes killing monsters and collecting loot until they reach the end. What makes Shiny Gauntlet a little different from other rougelike games is that players don’t permanently have a class. Instead, the player’s class is affected by what weapon they … Continue reading Finding a Shiny Guantlet

Trials in the Town of Salem

This week Billy lies and cheats his way to the top in Town of Salem. It’s a browser game that is basically a chat room with some extra features. It’s not about having the best gear, highest levels or quickest reflexes. Instead, the game rewards the players that are best at lying and keeping track of details.

Exploring the Universe Sandbox

Welcome Time Wasters! This week I spent my time exploring the cosmos in Universe Sandbox. Universe Sandbox is a strange game to have in my Steam library. The game isn’t exactly a game, but it’s more of a simulator. That’s strange for me because I’m not a big fan of simulators. However, I really do find myself able to enjoy this game. Universe Sandbox allows players to create an infinite number of universes to play with and explore. When I say explore, I mean look around at all the different formations and rotations of planets in the universe. So it and creating really … Continue reading Exploring the Universe Sandbox

Checking Out the Jobchanger Brigade Prealpha

Welcome Time Wasters! I’ve gone further than any hipster has hoped to go. Instead of just checking out a game in it’s alpha, I’m looking at one in its prealpha. Get your fedoras and neckbeards ready! (Note: I do own a fedora and have been known to sport a neckbeard from time to time. It’s a joke, people.) Alright, so this week’s game is called Jobchanger Brigade. It’s a 2D game that has RPG elements combined with hack-n-slash combat. The game is very early in its build so there isn’t much in the way of story. All I can figure is … Continue reading Checking Out the Jobchanger Brigade Prealpha
