I’m sure my reaction to first hearing about Chicken Police mirrored a lot of others, “What the hell is Chicken Police?”. I then looked it up on Google and realised that it’s a noir with anthropomorphic chickens. It’s a very intriguing and almost confusing idea, one which could easily be hit or miss.

๐Ÿ’ฟ GOTHAM ’89 Video Game Vinyl Review From Shapeshift Records ๐Ÿ’ฟ @shapeshiftvinyl #Vinyl #VideoGameVinyl

A perfectly-timed release, with Batman being on a lot of minds following Matt Reeves’ (excellent) The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson as the scowl under the cowl – Shapeshift Records’ GOTHAM ’89 is a re-imagining of Danny Elfman’s 1989 Batman score as a 16-bit epic. Good.

Considering that this is Shapeshift records’ first release, it’s an impressive achievement as the presentation, design, sound – and quite frankly –the idea behind the album is all awesome.

๐Ÿ›ฃ️ Road 96 Original Soundtrack Vinyl Review G4F Records ๐Ÿ›ฃ️ @G4F_Records #VideoGameVinyl #Vinyl

My esteemed and roguish colleague Pixel Hunted recently covered Road 96, a narrative adventure from French developer Digixart – and had this to say:

“Road 96 has its heart in the right place, looks striking, is crammed full of good ideas, and has an exceptional soundtrack (it’s telling that the collectables are cassettes and that the game is full of tape players to listen to them on).”

Naturally, this information stayed rooted in my brain like an arrow of pleasure fired from a bow of joy, and so when I had the opportunity to cover the soundtrack on vinyl - I leapt upon it ferociously.

๐ŸŒบ Sephonie PC Review 8/10 "Sephonie was my first Analgesic game. It won’t be my last." ๐ŸŒธ @han_tani #IndieGame #IndieGameDev

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

A two-person development team has no business making a 3D platformer. Why not settle for something a little more achievable like a visual novel, a flash game, or just firing up the ‘ol RPG Maker like so many budding game developers have before.

But Analgesic Productions - comprising Melos Han-Tani and Marina Kittika - ignored the easy road and strode headlong into the fire with Sephonie


Surrounding them are the weatherbeaten remains of late 90s developers who tried and failed to crack the 3D platformer.

๐Ÿ’ฟ Shatter Vinyl Review | Composer – Module (Jeremiah Ross) ๐Ÿ’ฟ @jeramiahrossnz @PikPokGames

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

I had been previously unaware of Shatter, a physics-based puzzle game released on Steam and the PSN store back in 2009 by developer PikPok- and I certainly wasn’t aware of the quality of the soundtrack.

Following a news article that I posted on Twitter – regarding the games’ soundtrack now being available on streaming services – the original composer, Module – mentioned that there had been a limited vinyl release in 2011 through New Zealand-based label Mushroom Records…and there were actually a few records still available. Fast forward several weeks and the Shatter soundtrack arrived here in (not so) sunny Wales - and thus my love affair began.

๐Ÿ“€๐Ÿ’ฟ Project Sidologie: Revolutions Vinyl Review ๐Ÿ“€๐Ÿ’ฟ @C64Audio #Vinyl #VideoGameVinyl

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Product link - https://c64audio.com/collections/project-sidologie/products/project-sidologie-double-vinyl-lp

“An offshoot of the successful Kickstarter ‘Project Sidologie’ (https://c64audio.com/collections/project-sidologie), Project Sidologie Revolutions is a double-disc vinyl that takes C64 tracks composed by such luminaries as Rob Hubbard, Ben Daglish, Matt Gray and Chris Huelsbeck, and re-imagines them as Jean-Michel Jarre soundtracks, with selections representing different eras of Jarre’s catalogue.

Certainly one of the more niche records I’ve covered, Project Sidologie Revolutions is very clearly a passion project from all those involved and is highly recommended for those out there with a love for SID chip sounds, as the versions captured here are expansive and evocative takes on tracks that pulse with a timeless Commodore 64 heartbeat.

A double heavy rare vinyl LP with custom artwork and a beautiful gatefold sleeve with Giger-esque artwork by Trevor Storey. Thoughtfully, it includes a high-quality digital download pack so you can play the unique vinyl mixes on other equipment.

๐ŸŽ️๐Ÿ’จ Agent Intercept Nintendo Switch Review 7/10 "No, I exSpectre you to die" ๐ŸŽ️๐Ÿ’จ @PikPokGames

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

A racing game with mobile roots that has now blasted across to consoles, Agent intercept casts you in the role of a spy that has been given control of the Spectre, an ultra-high-tech machine that has the ability to transform into other vehicles, fire missiles, turbo boost and generally be very, very saucy.

As you work your way through the missions, getting ever closer to taking down the evil CLAW – which reminded me of Inspector Gadget, good – you’ll take down submarines, helicopters, leap into airborne carriers... and blow up a lot of henchmen in jeeps.

๐Ÿ”  Mini Words Collection Nintendo Switch Review 8/10 "A fun way to learn and improve basic language skills" ๐Ÿ”  @qubytegames #IndieGame #IndieGameDev

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

The below text is from the developer’s site, and pretty much covers what is on offer in the game. It’s a great and fun little title to improve basic language skills, but not particularly challenging for those well-versed in the English language, as the game is aimed at younger players or those learning English.

That said, Mini Words Collection is a fun way to pick up certain words from the languages listed. Even on the harder modes, it’s clear that this is more of a fun learning tool, I liked it!

๐Ÿ˜Ž GAS - The Gaming Athlete | Blue Light Blocking Glasses & Compression Socks ๐Ÿ˜Ž @The_GasOfficial

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

https://thegamingathlete.com

A bit of personal background before I dive into this article. 


I’ve been aware of the health benefits of compression socks and blue light blocking eyewear for a little while now, for two different reasons – in terms of compression socks, several years ago I had a minor health complaint that resulted in my doctor telling me that the situation would improve if I wore compression socks – the issue was partially linked to my job, which – being office-based – meant that it was a pretty sedentary affair for 7 hours of every day. 


I baulked at the thought of compression socks, as from my understanding they were flesh-coloured, and mainly for the elderly. I couldn’t imagine dropping my jockeys in front of my fiancee whilst partially dressed as Mrs Doubtfire, it seemed a recipe to fizzle out our future romantic encounters. And so, I pushed the idea away and mosied on.


Where does that health issue stand now, several years later, after doing nothing?


Marginally worse, unsurprisingly.

NeonLore has quite an interesting premise - more an interactive short story collection than a game per se, the hour or so you’ll spend drenched in neon sees your character walking around several blocks of a futuristic dystopian city, reading snippets of various characters’ lives, solving the occasional puzzle, and listening to audio stories.
