So, I think there’s at least a few of us games geeks around here. So, let us share in the fun games keeping those idle thumbs at bay.
I’m currently enjoying Volume very much. It’s a stealth based game, re-telling the Robin Hood story, set in the future. Sounds odd, but it’s really good fun. It’s made by the bloke that made Thomas Was Alone, who I have been lucky enough to meet, a thoroughly nice chap. Also features voice acting from Danny Wallace, Andy Serkis & Jim Sterling. About 1/3 of the way in, I’d heartlily recommend it.
I also downloaded a mobile game last night called Lifeline. Only played a little bit, but it seems really interesting so far. It’s a kind of text-based adventure game. The story is based around a chap who has crashed his ship and lands on a moon, somewhere. You guide him through his adventure, but the twist is events occur in real time. So for example, dude says he’s going to explore something that looks about an hour away, it’ll be an hour before anything happens in the game. Heard good things, keen to see where it goes. At 79p, it’s worth a blast I’d say.
