PC Pick: Jack King Spooner's Beeswing

December 12, 2014 6:40 AM | Konstantinos Dimopoulos / Gnome

bee.pngJack King Spooner's Beeswing is a wonderful game. A wonderful, personal and yet at times simply wondrous game, that effortlessly and occasionally radically changes its visual style but always remains a consistent thing of unique beauty. A beautiful autobiographical game then, though also one with a brilliant soundtrack. And things to say most of us can relate to. Also, an exploration game with adventure bits thrown in that you should grab for your Windows or Linux PC.

ChaosReborn.pngThe original Chaos: The Battle of Wizards --a turn based strategy game designed and developed by Julian Gollop years before he moved on to X-COM-- was a masterpiece. Actually, it still is and remains a fluid, extremely clever and highly tactical game that has finally been kickstarted to modernity under the guise of Chaos Reborn.

particulars.jpgParticulars, from Australian developer SeeThrough Studios, is an action puzzle game in which the player is a quark and must attract and repel other particles to meet the goals of every stage. It's more than that, though. The stages are steeped in the story of a woman who has some unfortunate things in her past and is now being chased by strange men.

Y2K: Haruki Murakami and the Giant Robots

December 5, 2014 7:00 AM | Konstantinos Dimopoulos / Gnome

Drawing inspiration from the works of Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami and games such as Earthbound (possibly Killer 7 too), Y2K by Two Brothers developer Ackk Studios is bound to be as unique and refreshing a JRPG as one could reasonably hope for. Intriguingly it even promises to start off with an elevator and an urban legend.
