Installation 01 a fan-made Halo game being made by Halo lovers working from around the world. We aim to build an artistic tribute to Halo that recreates the multiplayer experience of the Bungie-era games. The game will be free to play on all PC platforms, including: Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Installation 01 is looking fantastic and I’m eager to try out the multi-player portion of the game.  These independent developers may include a single-player campaign as well which I’m sure would be quite impressive.  Installation 01 should be arriving sometime in the future with no release date set as of yet.  I for one am going to keep tabs on this game.  If you would like to know more about the game visit and check out all of their Halo goodness.

Action / RPG / Adventure With Roguelike Elements

In the summer of 2015 after a chain of unrelated events, three old friends came together and decided to create games. Dubbed Laughing Machines, we didn’t notice how our project turned from a tiny game which required only 2-3 months of development into a serious business: several more people have joined our team and after dozens of sleepless nights we’ve decided to demonstrate our debut game – meet UnDungeon!

I love surprising, weird science fiction games and UnDungeon fits that description to a tee.  You’ll get to play as one of seven mysterious alien Heralds each from its own world.  They are the keepers of a device called the “core” which allows them to resurrect each time they die.  UnDungeon throws these worlds together which were first thought unreachable by several light years of space travel.  The cataclysmic event called “The Shift”, which is far beyond human understanding caused this and has hence made the Earth a more dangerous place.  A multiverse of parallel worlds was created that exist multi-dimensionally where you get to fight these alien species.

The game-play looks fun and the pixel style of artwork is really beautiful and refreshing.  The seven alien character species are definitely odd and all have their own unique powers and abilities.  The combat system is intricate allowing players to fight in real time using artifacts and amplifiers to counter an opposing threat!  The developers at Laughing Machines are making the game using realistic physics for in-game projectiles, debris, bouncing, and grenades.

UnDungeon is slated to be released January 2018 on the PC, Mac, and Linux.  The game is currently a Kick Starter project and should also be released on Xbox One, PS4, and PS Vita as further funded stretch goals are met.  The developers need your help to make the project a reality.  I am definitely backing the project and have already donated 15 euros.  I’d love to play this game on PC, but I would really like to play the game on my PS4 in wide screen HD with surround sound!  Check out the video below and I think you might be impressed.  You can donate to the Kick Starter campaign here if you would like.  I would like to say good luck to Laughing Machines in making such an interesting and odd sci-fi fantasy style of game wrapped in a gorgeous pixel skin!


Slain began as a Kickstarter campaign for Wolfbrew games.

Slain, developed by Wolfbrew Games is inspired by sidescroller games of the 1980’s and 90’s like Golden Axe, Altered Beast, and of course one of my favorites Shadow of the Beast!  Over 1000 backers donated to the project on Kickstarter to bring the game to life. Continue reading
