New Releases: Week of October 30th, 2022

Did you carve a pumpkin yet? As soon as I am done writing this I have to start searching for some carving templates. What's that? Templates are for losers? I agree, my creative skills are basically nothing. If I want something other than some triangles for eyes, nose and a series of them for a mouth...I need a template. Maybe that is why I am always in awe of the art in a game. Sometimes I just look at the screen and wonder.."How did someone do that?!?! Let alone come up with that idea?!?!" If you are one of those no-template people and you do more than the triangle method for your jack-o-lantern then my hat is off to you!

Spolier alert: last week may have been our high point this year. I am kind of surprised actually as I thought the really big releases would drop closer to the holiday season. Oh well, more room for the indies I guess!

Lonesome Village
Release Date:
November 1st, 2022
Platforms: PC, PS5, Switch, XSX/S

Lonesome Village is a cartoon-esque puzzle life simulator/adventure game. If you, like Mrs-Soup, finished Stardew Valley maybe Lonesome Village can fill that void.


Release Date:
 November 4th, 2022
Platforms: PC, Switch

Apparently it is life simulator week. Maybe because real life is just a cesspool of madness and we need a break and maybe something we can control. Yes? No? Maybe? Anyway, Harvestella is more Final Fantasy-esque in its art style but like Lonesome Village can fish!


The Chant
Release Date: November 3rd, 2022
Platforms: PC, Switch

And we go from one life simulator to..well you could argue another but this one is a little less cutesy "Let's go fishing" and more like "Jesus fuck! What was that?!?! Holy Shit! Run!!!!!" Just another reason not to ever join a cult...or be talked into "not a cult" by your friends. Rule number 1 in avoiding cults, if you have to say "It's not a cult", it's a cult.
