But with proper strategic effort, good decision-making skills and a smidge of luck, your journey through this thriller of a gamebook just might have a happy ending. Maybe.

Speculating Screenshots (20th June 2015)

Speculating Screenshots
For most, weekends means two days off work with some much-needed R&R. But for game developers, it's also a time during which they get to show off what they've been working on. I am of course referring to Screenshot Saturday, which involves tweeting screenshots with the #ScreenshotSaturday hashtag. Screenshots which I will be critiquing some of every single Tuesday, in Speculating Screenshots.

Let’s Get It Kickstarted: Luckless Seven

Luckless Seven (GL)
Every action has a reaction, every choice a consequence. That's how it is in the real world, and as it turns out, also in Luckless Seven, the tale of a young man's attempt at making something of his life. Oddly enough, this is accomplished - partially - through… card battling! That and a vast array of social interactions, all of which will help shape the future of Mark, the protagonist. Groovy.

Let’s Get It Kickstarted: Night City Assault

Night City Assault (Kickstarter)
Roy Silver is a man on a mission, straight out of a late 1980's brawler, as Night City Assault has more than a little in common with popular genre entries from back then. It seem to borrow the best bits though, including stylish asskicking a super clichéd plot: an evil syndicate's kidnapped your partner, so naturally, you're gonna attempt a heroic rescue, taking down every last one of those bastards in the process. Fight fight fight!
