๐ŸŽฎ WAVE Game Studio Interview ๐ŸŽฎ @WaveGameStudios #IndieGames #GameDev

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

WAVE Game Studios are the publishers behind Senile Team’s Intrepid Izzy, a brand new Dreamcast game that was very well received at GF HQ (https://www.gamesfreezer.co.uk/2021/07/intrepid-izzy-dreamcast-review-910-im.html?m=1) and they recently - and impressively - travelled the width and breadth of the UK in a bid to spread the word of Intrepid Izzy far and wide. 

Taking time out of their mile-crushing schedule to talk to us at Games Freezer, we took the opportunity to get to the heart of this extremely hands-on and quite frankly, impressively gruelling mission.

If the name Michael Welch isn’t familiar to you, his games Scorched Tanks and Pocket Tanks almost certainly will be, especially if you owned an Amiga.

Birmingham is a great location for any event as it's so darn easy to get to for everyone and as such it means that it becomes a great place to meet up with like minded video games nerds every year. 

This year's EGX event was no exception with plenty of lovely people and loads of lovely video games to play!

Here's my favourite 5 games from this years video games extravaganza that i'm totally excited to buy in 2019!

๐Ÿ–ณ๐Ÿ’ฃ Anonymous Game Dev's Story: "Hard Work & Review Bombing" ๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ–ณ #GameDev #IndieGames

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On
Dark Blue Monkey talks with an Indie Team about their experience of going through Kickstarter, being a boss, releasing on Steam, and why they’ll never ever do it again.


Our guest today went through the full Indie Dev experience;  working full time, doing a Kickstarter campaign, hiring a developer, and then finally releasing onto Steam.   


While this may seem like the ultimate dream for most of us, unfortunately for the team the experience proved to be far from the utopia we imagine it to be. Just as their project reached fruition,  they fell victim to the now infamous review bombing while the game was still in early release, still at launch price.

Trying to do the right thing, they tried to sidestep the clunkiness of Steam’s forums and help players directly who were having problems by giving them access to Skype and email.  This resulted in mounting numbers of unpleasant messages following them into the real world. For this reason, they’ve chosen to share their experience anonymously.


This is a tale of caution, and hopefully will help any aspiring indie developers to avoid the same pitfalls.

Normally whilst showering in the morning I think of video games related ideas. 
These range from articles to write for Games freezer to Video Games that I’d love to see get made.

In today's world of Indie Devs, the impossible is now possible as the indie devs are always bringing out games that you never thought would ever get a chance in the world of AAA big budget games. 

The indie Devs are creating new genres and genre mashups that delight niche audiences and wider audiences alike.

☆ Review: Vive Le Roi "Meet The Narcoleptic Executioner!" - PC ☆ #GameDev

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

VIVE LE ROI - PC

Vive Le Roi is a stealth puzzle video game created by Sylvain Seccia


There aren’t too many games set during the French Revolution which sets this game apart from others of its ilk, it is also a port of a mobile game and although the stripped back gameplay does show its mobile roots, lovers of stealth puzzle games shouldn’t be put off as this is a solid little title.


Can I save King Louis XVI?

Will my knowledge of French history improve?

Why did the executioner get offered the job when he clearly suffers from narcolepsy?

Let’s find out.

☆ 8 Video Game Mechanics That Changed My View Of Video Games Forever ☆ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite

The Definition Of Game Mechanics:

“Game mechanics are rule based systems/simulations that facilitate and encourage a user to explore and learn the properties of their possibility space through the use of feedback mechanisms.”

I’ve been thinking back to some of the games that I loved to play over the years and thinking about the mechanics of those games that made me realise what was possible to achieve in the medium. The best mechanics seem to hook you and here’s 8 that hooked me….

Hotline Miami has kept me entertained for the last few weeks and now I have completed this brilliant game I am left wondering how I went from bumbling bludgeoner to hard to kill hitman in a game that tested me every step of the way. 

This video game was tough to begin with and then proceeded to get tougher!

One of my favourite past times on a Sunday night is to sit down in front of the TV and get my laptop out.

Then I head over to Kickstarter, type in Video Games and get myself knee deep in the latest video games Kickstarters so I can share with you the cream of the Kickstarter crop.

Are You Ready?

Last night a video game stole my heart and then messed with my brain!

The Count Lucanor is one surprise that I wasn’t expecting when I loaded it up from Steam.

When I took a peek at the screen shots I was thinking it looks like a nice pixel art style Action RPG.

When it started up I was hooked from moment one.

I’ve had a few days to play Velocity Stream and I can safely say that this game is something special.

The initial view leads you to think of Wipeout and F-Zero which are those awesome futuristic racers that all other futuristic racers tend to be compared to.

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

When I set out to make the Games Freezer website I was firmly in the retrogaming camp as I had become disillusioned with the current generation of video games 
(this was XBOX360&PS4 era).

I wanted to create a space to share my passion for the video games of old and all the cool culture surrounding the retrogaming scene.
