For the Empire – Single-player surprise in Battlefront II

When I came across the first rebel soldier, I decided to go for a silent takedown. That surely just makes them unconscious, I thought. I would not feel good at all about hurting rebels on my escape from a prison cell, as they are normally fighting alongside Luke and Leia against the Empire. The sound of breaking bones informed me that a silent takedown does not mean unconsciousness. There it was. I had killed my first rebel. This really did not feel good.

Path to Mnemosyne – Review

Path to Mnemosyne is creepy two hour puzzler with a unique hand drawn aesthetic. The visuals are disturbing and claustrophobic which fits the tone of the story perfectly. Puzzles in the game are unique, never overstay their welcome and get trickier the further you get into the game.

Everything is embedded in a unique impressionistic art style and a soundtrack done by a real orchestra.

Far From Noise – Review

Far From Noise - Significate Day

Far From Noise is one of those short but charming Indie titles. It asks existential questions through a conversation between the main protagonist and a stag. The graphics are simple but match the brooding mood of the conversations perfectly. The icing on the cake is an excellent soundtrack that reminded me in some parts of Dear Esther. Read more

RNG or drop chance in video games with focus on Warframe

RNG and drop chance is one of most confusing and frustrating subjects for Warframe players. Not only because of the math but because of all the half-truths found in forums and reddit. That is why I initially created a youtube video about this topic. This blog post is a loose transcript of said video. Read more
