Another week, another ten new games on my wishlist. Wowsers!
This week I’m tempted to go with Satellite Repairman, in which you play a person tasked with keeping a planetary satellite system up and running in the midst of a pan-galactic war. It’s like if Battlefield 1 had put the player in charge of tending the carrier pigeons for the whole game.
My problem is that I'm as impressionable as a dollop of warm wax. When I hear someone make an impassioned or well thought-out argument I can't help but rethink my own ideas. More often than not, I circle back around to my initial position, but I like to think of it as being a learning experience rather than a waste of time.
Like virtual reality.
I wasn't expecting much when I first stepped onto the indie games floor of MAGFest 2017. I've been to several conventions representing Extra Life in Philadelphia, and after several lengthy research sessions trawling through YouTube to find something worthwhile for our Week Aheads, I've grown jaded.
Now we’re getting back into the swing of things. This is a good-looking week. My wishlist expanded quite a bit just while researching the list. Don’t worry. I won’t inflict my top-ten list of this week’s releases on you. I’ll only pick one, but believe me when I tell you it’s a struggle.
After a lot of deliberation, I think I’ll go with Torn Tales.
