IN THE SPOTLIGHT


Sometimes you come across something so cute, that you simply can't ignore it. And to be honest, when I saw the trailer for Ghost of a Tale, I couldn't ignore it, even if I wanted to... which I most certainly didn't in this case! My husband and DumeeGamer collaborator Ferry told me about this game and, after seeing it in action, I can only say that it is truly one of a kind. So, sit back and let me tell you why.

A very, very, very long time ago, all species of animals lived together peacefully in a tranquil world. Then, out of nowhere, a huge ball of mystical green flames force started ravaging the peaceful lands of the world. There were many animals who tried to stand up against this mysterious force and were subsequently vanquished by it. One day, out of blind panic, the mice sent one of their own to bargain with the flame for their very lives. To save their own skin, the mice offered to expose the weaknesses of the other animals, making it easier for the Flame to conquer them. Thoroughly unimpressed by this act of treason, the flame destroyed the lands and homes of the mice...

EVEN MORE EPIC STUFF

  • Deltarune (Chapter 1) Ahh Deltarune, the long awaited return of the famous Toby Fox (creator of the epic masterpiece that is Undertale) has come. I remember watching the February Nintendo Direct in the hope that my boy Sans would get announced as the newest Smash Bros DLC fighter (I'm dead serious, I need this man in the game). That didn't happen (yet), however, we got something equally awesome...

  • I and Me A fun and challenging puzzle game? With super cute black kitties?? Sign me up please! When I got the chance to review this adorable title there was no doubt in my mind this was going to be an amazing journey! I had previously seen this title a few times in the Nintendo Switch store and was always this close to buying it, but then I saw different title and yeah, you know how these things go. Too bad I didn't buy it the first time though, because it is just too cute and adorable!

  • Move or Die The weekend is nearly upon us; a perfect opportunity to play a party game with your friends, don't you think? Sure, you could go for another round of Fortnite, or play some Mario Party, or one of the endless multiplayer modes that seem to be a part of almost every triple A game nowadays. And while these are all excellent options of course, may I recommend a wickedly delightful party game by the hand of developer Those Awesome Guys? With that name you can't go wrong, right?

  • Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn In 2011, I was so blown away by Kirby's Epic Yarn on the Nintendo Wii (Remember, that console where you had to move around a lot?). The game looked so beautiful with all the colors and everything in the world was made of yarn and various fabrics. Plus, the story was totally awesome! So, finding out that this awesome game was going to be available for my trusty Nintendo 3DS, was the best news!

  • The Lego Movie 2 Videogame We have all had those days where we're playing games and we long for something simple, something less intense, something fun. You may remember those old Lego games from your childhood like Lego Chess or Lego Rock Raiders, but what if I told you that these Lego games are still up and running? Both children, people who have retired and all those in between can now enjoy the simple fun that Lego Movie 2 has to offer.

  • Left Alive I was really looking forward to playing a brand new stealth-based action gameplay from Square Enix! Them being the designer from one of my favorite game series, the Metal gear solid series, I was excited to see to see this dark and gritty world were the only option is to survive. As a gamer, you have many challenges to survive, like having a crappy internet connection...

  • E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial I need to go deeper... how tough can it even be? It's not like rocket science... I mean, it's actually the exact opposite of rocket science... Now, where was I? Oh yes, I have the oxygen tubing all duct-taped together and the Oxygen collector is built top-side. I even found the special ingredient that, together with the industrial defibrillator will power this amazing discovery I made; a discovery that will fund this endeavor we call Big Red HQ forever and, most probably, until infinity plus one.

  • Echidna Shuffle Welcome to this colourful forest, where bugs try to make their way home and very friendly Echidnas roam the forest floor, happily giving the travelling bugs a ride to their destination. These Echidnas don't mind taking these bugs along, who jump on and off like tourists on the double-decker busses in London. Only without the actual London, busses and tourists. Besides, busses in a forest would just be silly, wouldn't you agree?

  • Death end re;Quest When an enormous beast came from the sky, the land fell into despair and chaos. Corruption spread throughout the land, violence and thievery became the standard of living. Only after the beast suddenly froze and shattered into a million pieces, the world seemed like it was back to the way it was. But strange things started to happen; mass suicide, people disappearing without so much of a trace; let's just say that it all went downhill fairly quickly...
