Finally getting a chance to review one of the most enjoyable co-op board games I've played to date. A friend of mine found it on Kickstarter and jumped in. I missed out but eventually bought a copy of my own to play. Kingdom Death is described by it's creator Adam Poots as a "Boutique Survival Horror" game. Well to be honest there's plenty of horror, but not much survival! This game is fucking brutal! I've played through 3 full games now, each progressing a bit further than the last but never successfully "beating" the game.
Almost a year since any new posts on this website? What's going on? Well, i'll get to that in another post, but for a short answer - i've not been gaming anywhere near as much as I used to. Instead I've been playing a lot of board games lately! I've been meaning to come back and write some new content and I thought, what better way than with a board game review!
The more I played this game, the more it felt like Wonderboy. But that's not exactly a compliment. What I mean is, the controls are a bit clunky for a platformer, but once you get used to them the game is not half bad, considering I got it for $0.16 in those Steam auctions. I decided to finish it and review it anyway.
It was just announced on Gizmodo that Archive.org has added 2322 games to their internet library archive. All of these games are free to play directly in your browser right now. They run pretty well and best of all you won't be breaking any copyright rules. There is a lot of junk in there to sift through, but a lot of gems too. Luckily, I am a retro game filtering expert.
Just added some new God Mode videos to Youtube. It's actually not a bad game considering it was just over $1. It is a little bit buggy in some parts and does need a little bit of polish, mainly the co-op mode crashing where only the host can do anything and the rest stand still. Also the aiming is a bit rough, presumably because it is adapted from a console game. Other than that, it's a great game to play to just blow off steam and have a few laughs with mates.
