Fires At Midnight: Nostalgia, Drugs, and…Love? (Review)

Keeping up with Indie September is another Malaysian-made game – Fires At Midnight. This game is a recent release by Persona Theory, a Malaysian game dev company.

To be honest, I did see the “request a review copy” button on their website, but one of the biggest problems of the industry is the lack of support. So, I bought my copy. Jia you, let’s go!

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince brought back some good memories (Review)

The Trine series of games has been quite dear to me since my boyfriend introduced the sequel to me a few years ago. Its not very often that you get a puzzle role-playing game where you have to use the different abilities of such an eccentric bunch of characters and its not often that you get to share that experience with someone else.
