Valley of Shadow

Valley of Shadow is a first-person narrative puzzle game developed by Tony Vaccaro. I played this game at Awesome Con 2019 along with Crescendo. There is little story in the game. Other than you are in a dark world. You will uncover your childhood memories and armed with a light staff. Valley of Shadows reminds me of early 2000 3D first-person perspective games. Your staff have different types of spells like Light, Force Missile and Fireball. Each type can light up room, ignite wood and turn water into steam. These are called side effects which helps you solve puzzles. Exploring can reward you with eastern eggs and secrets. The game is design to steer the player in a different direction.

The game is over the top black comedy. DeathComing have well-depth character sprites and graphics. There is some lewd humor like spying on aliens. The death dialogue is funny and depressing in a way. I really love this game in a nutshell. Playing the reaper is never good or bad. The controls are simple and easy to learn. DeathComing has vast playability with a casual tone. You control the fate of people. Gathering souls might be evil and causing someone demise. The reaper is the good guy. A agent of light is the antagonist of the game.

What is SpiritSphere?

Hello readers it’s been a while since I did a indie game hands on post. We will explore two games SpiritSphere and Meme Machine. These games play very causal and fans will love these titles. SpiritSphere is a ping-pong Windjammers indie game developed by Eendhoorn Games. The game draws inspiration from Legend of Zelda due to top-down camera angle. Spiritsphere plays like air-hockey with local multiplayer. I wish there was online in this game. There is different game modes such play against cpu. Earn coins to get new spheres and Squash mode. Squash mode is each player has a turn to hit the wall. Although if it’s not your turn, the other player scores. Players can choose up to 4 players for team match. If you don’t want to play with a partner. Go head to head with your friend.

SpiritSphere gameplay

The main goal of SpiritSphere is to get the sphere on the other player side. Simple enough right but wait there is more. There are different items and powerup to give player a edge. SpiritSphere features a small roster of characters but more will come. The game graphic is NES 8-bit style with eccentric soundtrack.  The game is easy to pick for newcomers and veterans. Each character have unique abilities for knocking spheres. My thoughts on SpiritSphere as a whole. The game is very fun arcade-ish with retro value. NES fans will feel right at home with this. Grab a buddy and talk trash with this indie game. Make sure you get SpiritSphere on Steam and Nintendo Switch.
