Plant Tycoon Review

Plant Tycoon

Developer: Last Day of Work
Publisher: Same as Above
Released on Sep 27, 2007

Plant Tycoon is my go-to waiting game right before finals week. It is a relaxing gardening simulator where you grow and nurture plants, then crossbreed mature ones to produce new offspring. Being a gardener, the goal is to pollinate different species of plants until you finally discover the six magical plants to restore the ecological balance to the island of Isola.

Genre: Casual Sim

A Throwback to Undertale

Undertale

Developer: Toby Fox
Publisher: The Annoying Dog
Released on Sept 15, 2015

Undertale is the one fangame RPG I’ve been longing to talk about at length. The only thing stopping me was the extreme hype thrown around by the fanbase.

Antichamber Review

Antichamber

Developer: Alexander Bruce
Publisher: Demruth
Released on Jan 31, 2013

Antichamber is a 1st person puzzle game known for twisting the boundaries of reality using confined spaces and color-coded blocks, designed in a style similar to Escher’s. It’s one psychologically trippy game that makes the player doubt what they’re seeing. Branching paths and endless hallways are everywhere, creating a sense of disorientation for those who just want to reach the end.

Genre: An Indie Puzzle-Adventure Game
