Game Recs: 3 Quick, Free Games to Make You Smile

I don't know about you all, but I find that life can be tough, and it helps to find things here and there that can make you smile. For me, games are one of the best distractions. Sometimes a whole long and involved game takes too much time and focus though. That's why quick, simple games can be great! I came across these three games lately---two of which only take a few minutes, the other less...
 

Visual Novel Review: Lake of Voices by GB Patch Games

A dark, beautifully illustrated visual novel that completely gripped me! Lake of Voices is a horror/fantasy visual novel in which you and a fellow guard, with the help of the guide, have to cross a dangerous lake with deadly creatures in order to get to a village on the other side that needs your help. But you're not the only two crossing the lake tonight, and the trip is full of perils that...
 

Gaming News: Upcoming Indie Games to Get Excited About in 2019

I was going to do an upcoming game releases post every two months this year, but, as it turns out, it's hard to find upcoming indie games.

This is my first one, and I only have two games to share since games I'm interested in are harder to find than books I'm interested in, but that's ok. Quality over...
 

Announcement: I’ve Added a Gaming Category to the Blog!

I've reviewed a few visual novel/dating sim type games so far, and I've talked about The Sims here and there, but I've finally added an actual gaming category! If you're only here for the books, don't worry. This is not a big change. I'm still going to post mostly about books and reading. I would just also like to try posting a little bit more about games now that I'm interested in trying...
 

Sims Shenanigans: My Supernatural Sims House Update (2) (AKA The One in Which I Let All 8 Sims Loose at the Carnival)

Yay, time for another update! I think you all are going to like this one. It's a fun one. I also have one last sim to introduce (there won't be any more since eight is the limit in the game). Annnnd I even have a little treat at the end for my Jacovine fans ;-) Also, I changed my graphic settings in the game (after the pictures for this post were taken), turned some of them down to compensate...
