Path to Prosperity Early Access Review

 Path to Prosperity has you taking over control of a small port and building it into something profitable. You can build mines, quarries, lumber mills and more. All to generate resources that you sell to ships as they enter your port. There are many ways to make money, you can stay focused on Mining Stone or branch out into more avenues, if you so desire. You have to feed and shelter your workers, along with defending your port from pirates and other raiders. All in the prospect of making gold to send back to the Queen, which will unlock access to rare items, and win you the game.

 I like the freedom of building the port to your own specifications and managing the people and resources. You can feel the small indie team charm in this one, but with that also comes the lack of some ease of use or common functionality that you might expect from a bigger budget game.  For being an early access title made by a small indie team, it has a solid foundation that is very playable. If you think it might be something you would enjoy, I highly recommend you check it out and support Essence Games. 

Here is a video of the game in action.

Wingspan Digital Edition - Played and Reviewed - A Work of Art That You Must Play!

Hi Gamers! We got to play this game via Steam Remote Play last night and it worked great. We had never played the board game version, so we went through the tutorial first, and to be honest we were a bit overwhelm, but once we got started it all came together and was really easy to play. The animations and added flavor of bird knowledge mixed with calm music and natural sounds was so relaxing. The game itself has some great mechanics and the random scoring goals keeps the game different on every play. There are many ways to win overall and the draw of the cards can drastically change your approach. This game was a pleasure to play and one that I will come back to over and over. Here is our video if you want to see it in action, it includes our thoughts on the game right at the start, then the game session.

As Far As The Eye - Review

 As Far As The Eye is an atmospheric & charming base building survival game, that does things in an elegant and fun way.  The sounds and animations fit the world they have crafted perfectly. The skill tree the pupils have allows for deep customization and give each one its own unique characteristics. There are 5 campaign missions that show you the ropes, and then you get into the normal play, where you pick from 4 different tribes to start with. Each with its own starting resources and background. 

Here is what gameplay looks like if you want to see it in action.
