Natalia Figueroa Talks Fran Bow

Fran Bow Header

Fran Bow is almost the polar opposite of the recently released Dropsy. Instead of being a whimsical adventure with lots of hugs and peeing dogs, Fran Bow is a point and click about a deeply disturbed young girl who sees and does some awful things, chats with strange monsters, and confronts her dark past in a way that certainly isn’t hugging people. After playing ... Read More »

Mother Russia Bleeds is an eye-catching game. Drenched in buckets and buckets of blood and coated with a crisp pixel art style, this beat ’em up caught my attention almost immediately.

Jay Tholen Talks Dropsy

Dropsy Header

Dropsy is not what you’d expect from an indie game in 2015. It’s not a walking simulator, a horror game, or a puzzle platformer. No, it’s a bizarre throwback to the old point and click games of the 90s, starring an obese and rather frightening clown who just wants some hugs. So I managed to email the brains behind Dropsy, Jay Tholen, to discuss ... Read More »
