When you think about the purpose people have on this Earth, what comes to mind? Would it be saving those that we swore to protect or would our purpose be those that cause harm to those that we thought we could trust? Do you think you would practice every day to perfect your craft or would you let the days slip away just hoping that you are prepared for whatever may come your way? When you really start to think… Read more.

I am not sure how I ended up here in this mansion. It's not as empty as it looks. The walls seem to be able to talk to enclose something or someone within their confinements.

I need to find a way to end this… Read more.

If humanity as you know it changed, how easily could you adapt to it if it was like nothing you were prepared for?

But does developer Vertigo Games bring us the fear of change and allow those to help make it adaptable? Let's find out with… Read more.

Meliora. The name alone brings the thoughts and the anger. It was a place full of magic and wonders still yet to be fully seen. The enemy forces were strong, maybe a little too strong.

These times are dark and filled with a plague that brings out hatred and… Read more.
Being an ape has its downfalls. Sure you get to make ape sounds, try to keep to yourself when other people are looking at you making faces thinking you will react, and just not having the space to move around as much as one would like.

One of the many games that gave us a new perspective on how we play was called A Fisherman's Tale by developer Innerspace VR and publisher Vertigo Games. Two years later, the same team brought its spiritual successor for all to experience what it was like to become an apprentice and mix it with the storytelling & puzzles as you embark from mask-to-make and puzzle-to-puzzle as you explore through the "mask realm" called Maskmaker. And while the game has been… Read more.

Ever since the review of Unplugged, I have been enjoying my time with it more and more while trying my hardest to unlock those final songs. Part of the reason was I kept going back to certain songs while the other part was trying to master the different goals with the different difficulties.

Back in April of 2020, we learned about a new 4-player co-op VR shooter from the developer, Vertigo Games, called After the Fall. Then, in March of 2021, we were introduced into its cinematic world.

We all enjoy different things in life. But there is one thing that a lot of us will agree that one of the things we have in common and that is music.

Sometimes we like to sing along while… Read more.

When there is a frozen aftermath of an alternate 1980s Los Angeles there are a couple of things that we can be sure of. One, someone didn't listen to someone about what could happen and as a result, things will result in bad and terrible things.

Twenty years later, it's the survivors that are… Read more.

Before the pandemic, I think there is one thing we could all agree on and that is no one likes traffic. The sitting and waiting, the additional frustration, and even possible accidents all because of a traffic jam.

But as things start to ease up some and more people getting out and driving, the traffic is also starting… Read more.
Certain things in life are supposed to be simple and reliable. Things such as vehicles, cities full of life, and traffic lights.

The people can get ran over, and even zombies or natural disasters could be unleashed. But that's where you come in or at… Read more.

One of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes is the one about five different characters inside a box just wondering what else could there be out there and do whatever they can to find an exit.
