Outer Wilds is a space exploration & adventure puzzle game. You, the player, take on the role of the newest member of the Outer Wilds, a team of astronauts tasked with venturing out into the galaxy.
Many of the games I’ve played in the past that really put an emphasis on the art style usually lack when it comes to gameplay. Not that it means the gameplay is automatically going to be bad, but it’s going to feel limited. At least, this has always been my experience. You’ll maybe have just two or three buttons to mash, and the game won’t get much more complex than that. This is what I’ve thought about these different “Interactive art” style games that I’ve played in the past. That is until I played Ovivo, and I was pleasantly surprised at what the game turned out to be.
The First Tree is an endearing game about the parallel lives of a human couple and a fox mother. Both with their own struggles, finding a way to cope with life. This is the second game by David Wehle. If you wanted to read my review on his first game Home is Where One Starts… you can find it here.
Welcome to a new edition of Five Dollar Dives! Today I am going to be looking at the indie horror game There’s a Butcher Around.
If you have played a horror game then you might know what to expect, but for the most part, I can say what you have in mind is not what this game is.

The Gardens Between is a charming and interesting game about two kids who are sucked into another dimension to solve puzzles. Every level is thematic, and some can be rather challenging. So get your thinking caps on!
Welcome to a new edition of Five Dollar Dives! Today I am going to be looking at the indie platformer Super Phantom Cat.
I would be lying if I said this games graphical style is not what caught my eye. It also has cats, so naturally the moment my fiancee Sara saw it she insisted that I review this game.
Have you ever wanted to play as a little cat on a grand adventure? Well, this is the game for you! You take on the role of a cat on a journey in this cute and endearing story. As you travel through the empire of Felingard, you will learn magic spells and find lots of loot. I’ve replayed this in anticipation for the sequel that comes out this year, Cat Quest 2: The Lupus Empire. Continue reading “Cat Quest — A Pawsome Catventure”
Welcome to a special edition of Five Dollar Dives! This week I am taking a look at One Finger Death Punch 2.
Note: Although One Finger Death Punch 2 costs more than $5, I am making an exception for this game as I already reviewed the original game. It’s also priced at a very affordable $5.99, and I definitely think the extra money is worth it in this case. Now, let’s get on with the review!
