Verne: The Shape of Fantasy and four more games

The other day I made a quick-fire poll on Twitter. Yes, we are still calling it Twitter here at Indie-Gems. But I digress. The poll in question was about what game to include on this week’s list. I say game and not games as I gave you, the reader, three games to pick and choose from. The games you decided against were, Desynced by Stage Games, and Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew by Mimimi.

Now, as a long-time fan of Mimimi and their games, I was a bit bummed by the outcome. But rules are rules, right? I know. I am known to break the rules. But not this time. I might do it next week though. Yes, that was a joke. No, not the part about there being a reader’s choice next week. That will continue to be a thing going forward.

On the subject of going forward. How about we take a look at the highlights of week 33?

Verne: The Shape of Fantasy by Gametopia


Astronaut: The Best by Universal Happymaker


En Garde! by Fireplace Games


BOOK OF HOURS by Weather Factory


Bomb Rush Cyberfunk by Team Reptile (Readers choice)


There is order in chaos

I wish the heading were applicable in the case of Order Automatica by New Beings. No, I am not saying it is a bad game that should be ignored. If that were the case, I would not write about the game to begin with. What I am saying is that the game has to become more streamlined. And for that to happen, they need feedback from players like yourself. Yes, there is a playtest available that you can apply for. Give it a try and tell them what you like or dislike about the game.

While talking about things we like or dislike. Paradox Interactive is currently in full swing celebrating the fact that Europa Universalis IV turned ten years old. Yes, it is OK to dislike their DLC model. But I also think the DLC model is one of the reasons for the game having survived this long. I mean, ten years is no small feat in today’s market. And it has to be financed in one way, shape, or form. So, hats off, and congrats to everyone involved in the game throughout the years.

With that said, enjoy a celebratory piece of cake and take care until next week!
