Laboratory X-29 is a sci-fi roguelite-like top-down shooter, where the protagonist takes his chances to escape from the Lab after an accident. Shoot your way out to freedom, clear rooms full of other dangerous experiments, find out the secrets hidden in this place and eat chicken to survive.
Escape a procedurally generated laboratory, where every attempt is different. Each new room you enter will be full of dangerous experiments that you have to fight back and survive.
Find out the secrets hidden in this strange place. What kind of experiments were conducted here? What kind of creatures were created? And increase your chances of getting out of the Lab with every piece of knowledge you collect.
After a recent accident, it seems that even the matter of the world has thinned and now you can meet charactersfrom other universes! Who knows, maybe they will give you something useful.
Now the air of the lab is poisoned with a toxin and you lose your health every second. Luckily, you have found a fried chicken, which is part of experiments too. Eating it restores your health, BUT you will have to face unpredictable sideeffects.
Good luck on your run through Laboratory X-29! (\/) 0_o (\/)

The longest January in the history of January is finally done. 2023 can finally be set in motion, and we can shift gears to what might be the longest February. In any case, time never stands still with all things retro, and we’ve been treated to some awesomely cool new things this time.
While we mainly talk about the highly retro side of gaming, we tend to forget that the 90s will fall under that category nowadays. We’ve been drawing inspiration from the most old-school things, and they do help inspire us with newer creative ideas.
We also like to reminisce on simpler times back when life was much slower and in a good way. We also want to recognize greatness and show appreciation through something nice. Let’s talk about that.
First up, we have to game the looks and feels retro but is newer than your average modern title. We’re talking about A Space for the Unbound. It’s a gorgeous pixel art experience brought to us by Mojiken Studios and produced by Toge Productions. Released in January of this year, the plot of this pixel art masterpiece revolves around teenagers Atma and Ryan and is set very nicely in the late 90s’.
It takes us on a journey to Indonesia but highlights all of the elements one would find in your favorite Japanese anime. With a compelling story and a gorgeous art style, you’ll likely pick this up if you like slower, less action-packed, slice-of-life titles that add a little bit of the supernatural.
It’s always nice to unwind now and then, right? So if you’re keen on developing and reliving that feeling of youthful exuberance, then it’s best to check out A Space for the Unboundon your favorite console.
We all love a thrilling action movie, especially if it came from a few decades ago. I’m sure they just hit differently and in more ways than one.
While the James Bond franchise has been around for the longest time and has yet to wrap things up, we can’t deny how one particular installment made a considerable mark in gaming. Yes, I’m talking about GoldenEye 007.
The pioneer of competitive first-person shooters. According to many, the Nintendo64 catalog has been on switch online for a while now, and GoldenEye 007 has been a Nintendo fan favorite since it gained popularity way back. Since Nintendo teased it in September last year, everyone’s been waiting. Thankfully the wait is up. Just before January ended, GoldenEye 007 for Switch online came to be. Complete with its glorious full multiplayer expansion.
Yes, it’s here, and all the now grownup fans can relive its classic competitive PVP whenever they wish whether it’s on the go or your gorgeous widescreen. GoldenEye 007 experience is here, and it’s here to stay. Given that news update, we hope you’re all shaken and not stirred.
Lastly, here is some nice feel-good news, especially if you live in Japan. We all know Final Fantasy and how massive of a franchise. With 15 major titles so far, a variety of spinoffs, and a critically acclaimedMMORPG, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone who hasn’t at least heard about it. That being said, we can’t deny that the seventh installment had the most significant impact on mainstream gaming.
While we’re not too keen on the details, like whether or not you don’t have to come in for work, it’s nice that a game with such a legacy now has its place in history. Imagine if you just so happen to be playing Final Fantasy on Final Fantasy VII day, that could be quite the epic story many years from now. An epic story that could be told by the grandkids. Gather around to play final fantasy 30 or 25 at least.

When I first read that there was a cat-based Metroidvania that’s inspired by Slavic mythology, I knew I had to check it out.
If you’re like me, you have an appreciation for well-crafted pixel art video games. So when I saw Cotton Fantasy coming to the Nintendo Switch, I was immediately intrigued, given the genre and cat-based storyline. It turned out to be my second favorite teenage witch-based game of 2022, and it’s worth picking up for any pixel lover. Here’s why I love this game so much…
Now, the retro game ingenuity keeps getting better every month, and there's always a lot of action and excitement for everyone. The titles over on Kickstarter are no different. This time we're going full-on sword and board, medieval fantasy style, but it's not quite what you'd expect. Fables of Talumos is a top-down retro-style action-adventure game set in a unique fantasy world, complete with magic monsters and a whole lot of exploration.
Dan Beckerton takes inspiration from his experiences with the Zelda franchise, Warcraft III, and, surprise, surprise, Dark Souls. Talomus is a colorful place breathing with life, courtesy of its four distinct races. The Hetonians are your good old human race; the Skogen is a race of deer-like humanoids with a strong affinity for nature; the Forlorn is cursed dragon-born humanoids brought to life by evil sorcery, and the Fallen are the undead hordes that seek revenge on everything that breathes freaky. You'll follow the story of an adventurer named Oskar as he travels through the moonlight realm to save his wife from an ominous disaster.
Really cranking up the “follow your dreams” quote to the extreme now, are we? Fables of Talumos is definitely worth checking out if you're a diehard retro epic fantasy fanatic.
Adventuring is nice, but there are safer ways to make a living in the old-timey days of yore. Breakfast Studios got you covered with Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator, and no joke, it's literally what the title says. It's all in first-person, and it's up to you to do all the medieval shopkeeping things like crafting, buying and selling, franchising your medieval shops, and dabbling in a little bit of magic. No medieval game would be complete without a bit of arcane now, wouldn't it?
The low-poly style adds a bit of charm to the game's world, and while you won't be venturing far and wide, you won't be stuck behind a shopkeep’s table either. There's a lot to do and very little time in the kingdom, and Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator looks to keep you busy if you're up to the challenge. So which medieval epic adventure do you choose? Go out and save the world? Or chill a bit and let the coin flow? Whatever path you take, just make sure you have fun on your journey!
