As we’ve seen time and time again, being the bad guy can be a fun experience. And one of the ultimate bad guys around would be a deadly disease which the developers of Plague Inc Evolved are counting on.

That combines the thrill of Rogue-like design with the methodical and often slower pace of a tower defense to make something entirely new. While the game is not finished yet, there is a lot to like here.
When news of a Kickstarter to revive the God Game genre was announced by Peter Molyneux, there was excitement and some reservation at the thought of giving Peter another chance to run with one of his dream ideas. Yet the prospect to get another God Game was too good to pass up and Godus was funded.
Months later and after numerous delays, broken promises and confusing mechanics, Godus is as far away from the God Game genre as a game can get and at this point one of the worst projects to come from Kickstarter.
If you’ve been following this site, then you know I have a love for rogue-likes and mechanic heavy games. And today’s kickstarter for The Darkest Dungeon is a game that practically ticks off every box on my must play checklist, with an awesome Gothic style to boot.
