Autumnal Waterfall 53 – One Finger Death Punch

Welcome to One Finger Death Punch, a two-button game. That’s right, it’s a game in which you only need two buttons. Like other games two-button games, Super Hexagon and Dive Kick, the concept is simple. And it’s addictive. I can sum it up in one sentence: Kung-fu action with guys coming at you from both sides and you pressing the direction button to kill them once they’re in range.

Kablam.

Get it on Steam.

The background seems way too non-stick-figure-y for my taste.

Remember a few years ba...

Autumnal Waterfall 52 – Warframe

What is Warframe? It is a free to play third-person action game where you play as robot ninjas. In Space. It is fast-paced, full of action and even a bit stealthy. It is a cooperative game in groups of up to four where you infiltrate a location, pull off the job, and then get to teh extraction. You control the titular warframe, of which there are many. Each warframe has four unique abilities and can be armed with pistols, rifles, shotguns, katana among many other kinds of weapons.

Play it for free. Official site. On Steam.

Note, all screenshots will be taken from the official Steam webshots section.

Action pose!

Autumnal Waterfall 51 – Paper Sorcerer

AutumnalWaterfall

Welcome to Paper Sorcerer, an old style RPG party quest type thing. It’s in the first person style where you wander around a dungeon, fighting monsters, building your characters and getting story. If I would have to compare it to something, I would say it’s similar in play style to Etrian Odyssey. Doesn’t help much if you don’t know what Etrian Odyssey is, so I’m going to give you some screenshots instead.

Get it on Steam and possibly other sites.

Look at those difficulties.

Yeah, the difficulty goes all the way back to 1980′s. Being a wimp, I chose Normal.

Oh indie games, you always do some weird...

Autumnal Waterfall 50 – Valthirian Arc 2

This time, I am writing about a free flash game. I’ve done it once before here (insert link to hotel manager). The game is Valthirian Arc 2, the sequel to the fantasy school simulator. It boasts some cutesy graphics while having better gameplay than the first. Now, there are actual school grounds that expand and grow as your school fame levels up. You also have a staff that’s mostly there to add life and flavor to your school. Once again, you are a principal trying to run a school for adventurers and stuff.

Play it at Newgrounds here or perhaps other placed where flash games are hosted, too.

A nice, quaint school.

Valthirian Arc...

Autumnal Waterfall 49 – Guacamelee!

Welcome to Guacamelee!, one of my favorite games released on 2013. It is a platforming beat’em’up that lets you roam from level to level. You unlock new skills that lets you reach other areas in previous levels, and everything is wrapped up in great presentation and humor.

I find everything about this game just so well done, from the combat to the platforming. The platforming, especially, can get quite tricky, which I really like. The combat is punchy, fast-paced and satisfying. The entire art style is seeping with color and Mexicaness (that’s not a word).

I would recommend playing with a controller, but a keyboard shouldn’t be too bad.

Let’s get ready to luchador! Get it on Steam, GoG, or perhaps somewhere else.

Gold Edition includes challenge levels.

You play as Juan, simple agav...

Autumnal Waterfall 48 – Stuff Time

Now it is stuff time! A time where I just decide to type semi-randomly and see what comes out. The topic will be on games, of course.

Last year was the year when Playstation 4 and Xbox One came out. I have neither of them. I also don’t own a Wii U. That means I have not played any of the new stuff that came out. Well, that’s fine, I suppose. Better games will come out later for the PS4 and Xbone, and I could possibly get them then.

I will say that I do really like my original PS3. Sure, it has less capacity than newer versions, but it also has full backwards compatability. That alone makes me like it more than newer versions.

I think my buying mentality has really been changed by Steam and Youtube...

Autumnal Waterfall 47 – Finding Teddy

Cheery Christmas, Happy Holidays, Festive Festivus, Hanukka Chanukka and everything else I forgot.

What’s going on this time? Well, I got this game on a Christmas sale. I know almost nothing about it other than its an adventure game and what the screenshots showed. I did like the style of things, so I got it.

Finding Teddy is available on Steam, Green Man Gaming and probably other locations.

Let’s do this.

It’s going to be a good time?

Well, I can say w...

Autumnal Waterfall 46 – The Cat Lady

AutumnalWaterfall

Ooh boy, this is a horror game. I usually don’t do horror games, because they horrify me. Imagine that. I have a really low tolerance for that kind of stuff. I guess sometimes, presentation and plot can make me try it out, and it was also on sale for halloween, too.

The Cat Lady works like a point and click game, though it’s entirely keyboard driven. You interact with objects and combine objects with other objects to solve puzzles. Though that’s not the main point of the game. The main point is to experience the atmosphere and the characters.

This is a game with a lot of dark themes and images, definitely not fit for younger people. But I don’t think I have any of the really disturbing stuff in the intro section.

Get it from here, GoG, or some other online distributors.

So here we go.

Scary grayscale.

Well, let’s give some basic ...

Autumnal Waterfall 45 – Goodbye Deponia

So this is the third shrike. You’re dumping just like a trashbag. Why? Just because of some mustard on the carpet.
You pathetic dorkhead. I assume your humor did just bite the dust.
But this isn’t over yet. Yeah, you can bet on that. The last part of my tale will surely appease and change your mind anyhow, so put on your deaf aid now.
The story goes on for good things come in threes.
Huzzah, good things come in thress.

Welcome to: Goodbye Deponia. The third game of the Deponia trilogy! This has been my favorite point and click adventure game in recent memories. The world, the characters, they are just all so well crafted. Clever puzzles are also abound in this game.

Find it on Steam or perhaps some other place. A full trilogy set is also available.

Why do I remember writing about the first Deponia game? I’ve tried looking, but I can’t find it anywhere. It’s strange. Oh well. Here’s a post now, so, put in your deaf aid, because we’re going to Deponia for one last time.

Goodbye. I will miss you.

Now, I’ve called adventure games jerk sim...

Autumnal Waterfall 44 – Dragon Commander

Welcome to Dragon Commander, or more accurately, Divinity: Dragon Commander. This is a spin-off game of the Divinity RPGs. I have not actually played the previous Divinity games, so I won’t be getting many of the lore references.

Dragon Commander plays pretty differently, though. It’s a mixture of a strategy game, a Real Time Strategy game and a Role Playing Game. You build up troops and take over other countries. It’s not as complicated as some other games with, say, much diplomacy options (at least from what I’ve played so far), it’s rather simple.

The single player does have a cool base for you where all your generals hang out.

Available from the developer here, GoG, Steam, or possibly other locations.

Now let’s swoop into the battlefield.

You are the dragon.

Dragon Commander is a mixture of St...
