Joshua Nuernberger

Gemini Rue is an upcoming indie adventure game created by Joshua Nuernberger.  Recently picked up by Dave Gilbert and his studio Wadjet Eye Games, it quite simply looks stunning, a slice of science fiction adventuring that initially evokes comparisons (at least visually) with Blade Runner, before surprising with a narrative that feels both refreshingly unique and wholly its own.

It has been my greatest pleasure, both via HardyDev and Alternative Magazine Online, to review some of the finest indie adventure games of the past few years. Perhaps that explains why I am so excited this month: It feels like Gemini Rue is going to be something  truly special. I am therefore proud to present an interview with Joshua Nuernberger, with a guest appearance by Dave Gilbert! (more…)

Rings a bell? It should!

I had just finished playing through and reviewing the excellent third season of Sam & Max, and, more importantly, Back to the Future is one of my favourite blockbuster, fun, 80s films. One of my favourite film franchises, in excellent hands – what could possibly go wrong?

If you ask someone what the best LEGO video game is, the answer can be only one:

- Biggles on Mars!

Nevertheless, only a few could name the author of Biggles on Mars – the mysterious thecatamites. Well, at least not until recently – when this creator’s latest game Space Funeral won unprecedented acclaim, and turned his Games 4 Schools edutainment portal for kids into the first stop on the web for Japanese RPG fanatics!
