Category: Deep Looks

Deep Looks act as review substitutes for games that do not meet our criteria for being fully-scored reviews (such as being DLC or the game not being completed for whatever reason).

Roguebook Deep Look

Trapped inside a magic book, the only way out is to deck build. Abrakam Entertainment and Richard Garfield construct a clever roguelike that pushes against genre conventions in some interesting ways.

Loop Hero Deep Look

Four Quarters’ nifty rogue-lite RPG is a fascinating little title with a lot hiding under the surface. Even though it doesn’t all quite come together, it’s an interesting game well worth checking out.

void tRrLM(); //Void Terrarium Deep Look

Nippon Ichi Software’s void tRrLM(); //Void Terrarium sees players controlling a helper robot trying to help a girl survive a hostile world. Though it tries to add a few interesting elements to the roguelike formula, they end up buried under the nature of the gameplay.

Children of Morta Deep Look

Children of Morta is a story-heavy roguelite following the Bergsons, a family that acts as the guardians of Mount Morta looking to halt the corruption spreading from it. RPGamer takes a look at its recently-released Nintendo Switch version.

The Executioner Deep Look

Lesser Evil Games set about to bring a wholly original idea to the gaming market. Those without a strong stomach need not apply, but will those with an iron constitution find a game worth pardoning?

Swag and Sorcery Deep Look

Swag and Sorcery bills itself as an idle RPG and city-building game. While there is truth in that advertised blending of genres, the ingredients offered don’t combine into a palatable recipe for success.

Vaporum PS4 Deep Look

Vaporum was designed and released for the PC a couple of years back. Does the PS4 release hold up for this grid-based steampunk dungeon crawler?

War Theatre Deep Look

War Theatre wants to recruit YOU to serve on the front lines of tactical combat. Unfortunately, its lack of user-friendly design earns it a dishonorable discharge, post-haste.

Into the Breach Deep Look

Saving the world from giant insects is way more fun with mecha as opposed to using a can of bug spray. Just be mindful of side effects which may include wanton destruction and civilian death.
