IN THE SPOTLIGHT

A few years ago, a man called Koji Igarashi came to Kickstarter with one burning desire. He left his former employer but still wanted to make a game worthy of his legacy. Due to copyright legislation, he couldn't make the game exactly in the style he was famous for, so he decided to make a entirely new game with all the best ideas he worked on in the past mixed into one. 65.000 backers thought this was a very good idea and the monetary goal he needed was truly and utterly dwarfed by the amount of funding he received...

"Now, who is this Koji Igarashi? And why do so many people pour their hard-earned money into his Kickstarter campaign?", I hear you ask? Well... have you ever heard of a little franchise called Castlevania? Mr. Igarashi is actually the mastermind behind most of these titles, and probably best know for his work on Castlevania Symphony of the Night. arguably THE best game ever made! Yes I know I'm not supposed to be writing down my own preferences but just ask some of the more serious or fanatic gamers out there... they will most likely tell you the same.

EVEN MORE EPIC STUFF

  • Doom 3 And here we are once again, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls; at our trusty Big Red HQ. Although I must say that it's kinda boring around here at the moment. There's absolutely nobody around to boss around or just simply annoy every now and again. After I returned from my mission to get our cyclo-temperature-defining device's main control switch back from our friend Bob Ross, who had been using it as a paint brush and, in doing so, turned our nice cozy HQ into a scene from Ice age, everything was still fine and dandy...

  • Super Wiloo Demake How sad would you be if your dog got kidnapped? I for one would be very sad and would do anything to get my favorite canine friend back. And that's exactly what we're going to do in a super cute platform game, developed by LightUP and ported by Ratalaika Games that goes by the name of Super Wiloo Demake.

  • Hoggy 2 What would you do if your children were abducted by a nefarious bunch of extra-terrestrial bad guys? What do you mean, "is this a hypothetical question?". Of course it is. When have you last seen visitors from out of space kidnap a bunch of brightly colored blob children? Yesterday? Damn, what neighborhood are you from?! No wait, never mind; don't answer that question.

  • La Stanza During our own "Let's Celebrate of Five years of DumeeGamer" event, we had the privilege of meeting up with the good people of Quined Games, who were good enough to come over and party with us. This, of course, made for a good opportunity to try a few of their newest upcoming board games, one of which is a cool game called La Stanza.

  • Zombie Driver: Immortal Edition Goodmorning boss. I'm afraid I have bad news. I can't come into work today. Why? Well, because my car is in the shop right now. What's wrong with it? Well, there's blood and guts clogging up the radiator, the front and rear bumper are hanging on by a thread and, oh yeah, I'm having miniguns and flamethrowers installed on either side of the hood. What have I been doing? Well, boss, I could tell you, but you probably wouldn't believe me if I did...

  • Dune 2: Battle for Arrakis For all that is holy in this world, could someone please fix the damn air conditioning? What do you mean there is nothing you can do?!? Get your tools, go into the Tech Room and make sure cold air starts flowing trough the ducts again. it isn't that hard, is it now? What do you mean, "yes it is"? Oh, we'll see about that, won't we now?

  • Mochi Mochi Boy Mochi Mochi Boy is a lovely colourful puzzle game that features loads of cuteness. This port of the game, developed by Pixelteriyaki and ported to PS4 and PS Vita, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One by Ratalaika Games, was first released on July 16th for the Ps4 and a few day later also on the other platforms. Just by looking at the pictures of this game, I know this is going to be right up my alley! It looks adorable and with all the cute chibi-faces I can't wait to play this!

  • Pawarumi In a galaxy not far, far away, but somehow both long, long ago as well as in the distant future, a young woman named Axo, who is the best female pilot of the empire, reaches out to everyone who will hear her last message. She's very sorry she destroyed every defense system on planet Earth, but she was under the control of an alien Entity. The only thing she can do now is to sacrifice her life and make up for everything that she did and hopefully destroy the alien entity that caused all of this misery.

  • Bouncy Bullets Bouncy Bullets is a 3D platformer in which you jump across big colourful platforms in a very bright and just as colourful world published. The game is developed by Petite Games and published by Ratalaika Games. It was first released on July 9th 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Vita, followed by the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch versions. Now, I hadn't heard of this game yet, but was very excited to try it out since I love the games published by Ratalaika so far!
