All right, this was supposed to go up yesterday, but I had a full weekend including an operating system reinstall, so.
Anyway, this blog has been dead for a while for various reasons, which all contributed to my interest in games declining. But I still follow the gaming news and talk to friends about the subject, so I figured I’d just share what I run across now and then.
Let’s start with the only game I’ve played lately, EverDelve, by
Shuriken Games — a recent acquaintance. It’s a rather odd combination between a roguelike and a classic dungeon crawler (except with an overhead rather than first-person view), with a JRPG-like combat system. EverDelve is under heavy development, but already quite compelling despite the balancing issues (which, I’m being told, are deliberately being ignored for now).
And yes, it’s made in Flash. For a game like this, I’ll make an exception.
