Only If

It’s been a long time since I finished a game and sat there smiling as I recounted everything that led up to that final moment. Only If is a very straightforward, non hand-holding, adventure game that can only be described as a combination of the mind-bending of The Stanley Parable, with the lab rat level crawling of Valve’s Portal.

You play as Anthony, who passes out at a frat party and wakes up in a twisted reality that forces him through a series of strange situations backed by a vague prose. You’ll complete a system of reality-distorting puzzles as a seemingly crazed man barks orders at you while he plays the overlord.
Only If is free to play on Gamejolt or Steam.

This game is another example of next generation thinking in the video game industry, and its subtle presence is a hidden footpath that leads us to a more evolved game conceptualization process. Creability’s Only If is a piece of the framework that is the threshold of the encroaching generation of design, harnessed by the forward thinking developers of today.

Review: Metro 2033 Redux

By: Matthew Posivy

There’s just something about the post apocalypse that fascinates me. A setting like that often creates a very immersive experience, playing on our human interests, our curiosity, the kind of thing that makes us as a human race scratch our heads and wonder: “What would happen after some sort of collapse of civilization?”

Hardware Review: Lenovo Ideapad Y510P

Once in a while a laptop comes around that completely blows you away. For me, Lenovo wasn’t a name I really knew, aside from the 2002 mice and keyboards they used to have in the IT office and at work. Not something exactly impressive, but when I started googling inexpensive laptops that could deliver a powerful gaming punch, needless to say I was impressed.

After Reset Aims to be Next Big Post-Apocalyptic RPG

Recently funded indie game After Reset is now in development after funding their prequel graphic novel. This is to be a game that spans multiple chapters per game, and is set after the events of a thermonuclear apocalypse that essentially ended civilization.

Aside from the obvious inspiration drawn from the Fallout series and Planescape: Torment, After Reset is to develop its own unique atmosphere through a different style wasteland, predominately by the presence of less dilapidated cities and advanced technology that was carried forward into this reality 132 years after the apocalypse.

Black Cloud Studios plans to release a prologue sometime this Fall and there’s plenty of content on their page to get you acquainted with this world before you get your feet wet.

This was unbelievably thought-provoking, touching, inspiring, and interesting. The atmosphere of the game is conveyed in such a way that it can be taken in a few different ways. There is a wealth of creativity in the Ludum Dare game jams. If you’re big into indie games (especially free ones) you’ll find plenty of treasure if you follow that link.

Particularly, The Lions Song is a must play, game time is estimated at 10 minutes, and it gets deep.
