Blade Ballet Preview

This sexy beast of a game is something I just discovered at the last Playcrafting NYC event a couple of nights ago. DreamSail Games knocked it out of the park with this super polished arena deathmatch game that bleeds style, fun and replay. Blade Ballet has several arenas that are interactive, power ups, a good choice of bots with individual powers and weaknesses and more content is on the way. Blade Ballet is a wonderful looking multiplayer gaming take on robot wars.

Arcadian Atlas is a 2D isometric tactical RPG set in the richly detailed pixel art world of Arcadia. Watch your footing and mind the elevations as you traverse the maps. Let the moody jazz soundtrack carry you through a thought provoking and ruthless story of love, deceit, murder, companionship and war.

Sumer Preview

At Playcrafting NYC’s last Demo and Play night of the year I was treated to a whole slew of games that caught my eye. Today lets talk about Sumer!

Antipole DX Preview

Antipole DX is a platformer that’s inspired by the 16 and 32 bit classics that we know and love and adds gravity to the mix. I’ve been following this game for a while now and I was darn happy to get my hands on it at Gameacon and find it doing better than ever. When I first came across the game a few months ago it needed some loving. Thankfully the team behind it has tightened up the controls and put some more polish on it. Antipole DX now looks, runs and plays beautifully.

Sombrero Preview

At Gameacon this weekend the very first game I came upon was Sombrero. I have to say it was an awesome way to start the con. A a two year labor of love by Nick Robalik Sombrero is fast four player action with plenty to see and do in game. It’s an area deathmatch game with multiple modes and an awesome quirky art style.

Starlit Adventures preview

This is just a few early impressions because I think I am only a quarter of the way in. Starlit Adventures is kind of blowing my mind right now. This game feels so polished I’d swear Starlit Adventures is an official Nintendo game. The character design, sound effects and gameplay so far are just insane considering this is a “Freemium” game.

Blind Blade Preview

This past weekend at Gameacon I came upon an awesome game called Blind Blade. Developed by Heavy Key Studios and inspired by Samurai Jack’s iconic episode Samurai versus Ninja Blind Blade is an amazing versus game.
