The dash/time management genre of PC games has died down quite a bit over just three short years. Back then, the popularity of titles like Diner Dash lead to a massive influx of [insert an event here] Dash. Imminent Games looks to bring back this style of games with their adorably fun, Drip Drip.
Finding the right balance of challenge and enjoyment is key when developing a game. Sure, when you’re a child you can spend hour after hour after hour on the same level of Earthworm Jim, but as soon as exams, a job, or heaven forbid, a social life start to get in the way, the few precious hours you get alone with a game have to be engaging and fun, but also progressive. Orcs Must Die! 2 fits this bill perfectly.

An old school shooter built on the amazing CryEngine 3. Sounds like a magnificent idea, doesn’t it? Surely, a combination of the new and old is bound to produce something beautiful. I’m afraid it’s only a gimmick as the engine just creates a blur around everything the player sees. Not exactly viable for a fast-paced Quake-style game. This coupled with a small amount of players, Nexuiz simply falls short.

Chances are good you’ve never heard of the term “visual novel.” If you have, then you either associate it with Japanese sex games or are a fan of the genre who knows better. I’ll save those in the latter category some reading and say up front that you should buy Cinders because it’s one of the best Western visual novels I’ve read. Everyone else might want to read on to find out more about this game, and the genre it occupies.
