Not really a very nice thing to see, right? Yeah. It’s not. And making a game that goes out of its way to antagonize players is not a good thing either. Or is it? It appears, that players will consume everything if it’s pretty. because Mutant Year Zero has a lot of positive reviews on Steam apart from having a lot of flaws. But we’re here to unapologetically dissect this game. Grab your popcorn, folks!

Can you really make this game, that will be so artsy, that game journalists would give it a solid 10/10, but the regular players, who aren’t elevated enough will forget about it in minutes? I guess you can, but what’s the point? You can make the game, that is artsy AND you can have a nice and solid gameplay there. Also, did I hear the cutting edge VGA graphical and MIDI performance? No? We’ll add those anyway. Enjoy your stay at the age of guilds! Enjoy the Loom.

There is a game called The order of the Thorne – King’s Challenge, that tried to be a Sierra point and click adventures’ spiritual successor and at the same time – the fairy tale with the fairy tale logic and story. Did it go well together? Not really. But that’s not the question you should ask in Duck in Games. Can we gain something from it? Yes, absolutely yes. Let’s see what’s in there for us, brave explorers of the wilds!

This time we dive quite deep into the wonderful world of Hero shooters. Like Overwatch. Or even better – Quake Champions. The titan when it was announced appeared to have clay feet and started to crumble right from the beginning. While Overwatch stands and dominates the market. What happened to Quake? Why is it on life support before Quake 1 multiplayer? We have to bring it on and learn something from the game design of Quake Champions.

Usually when people grow up, become more mature, the themes they are interested in mature as well. But in some media being childish and over-the-top is not a curse, it’s a blessing. Today we’re looking at the Armikrog, the more tame spiritual successor of the Neverhood – a game, that spawned such a dedicated fanbase, that they helped the original creators gather the needed amount on the Kickstarter and even more. Was more tame and less out there Armikrog a good spiritual successor to the Neverhood? Hop in to find out.

What is better? Have the bare minimum of character development or having a character, that is developed so far and deep, that you lose the initial idea of said character? What is more suitable for the FPS game? I bet you already know the answer, but let’s dive into the character development through the cutscenes.

When you pick up the game about the mysterious occurrences in the remote city in the US where there are only two people interested in the situation one being a person of action and open-minded and the other is firmly standing on the ground, you get… No, not the X-Files, it’s Kathy Rain, the game is so obviously inspired by the X-Files, that it works with the formula rather well. Apart from the one thing – the music. Music in this game is not something you should be hyped about. But let’s dig deeper and find the truth, somewhere out there.

A Short Hike is a very sunny and nice indie game that we were looking at on Twitch recently and I thought that having so little time as couple of hours of gameplay and quite a silent protagonist, the game has a very strong narrative design and should be dissected for the knowledge. And I can’t be quite objective about this game so bear in mind, your mileage may vary.

Your first game, even if it’s not your real first game will suck major time. Wanna see how you can make it better? Learn from the good people in the industry, learn from the developers of Shadowrun Returns. Don’t repeat after them. Analyze what they did, extrapolate it, use this knowledge to become a better consumer, developer or just a better person. Just… don’t try to make larger-than-life game as your first one, ok?

Sometimes crafting is the only thing, that keeps your game afloat. Sometimes it’s an anchor, that continuously tries to drown your game. In Fallout 3 crafting is bad. It was a step into some direction, sure, but was it a good step, or a step, that made you fall flat on your face? We’re about to find out.
