Indie Highlight – Clive ‘N’ Wrench: Time Trouble

Believe it or not, Clive ‘N’ Wrench originated from Kickstarter similar to fellow platformers A Hat In Time, Yooka-Laylee, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, Shovel Knight and Mighty No. 9.

Thus, it turns out the PlayStation 1 (otherwise known...

Griff The Winged Lion: Back To Basics

Kickstarter is a hit and miss and a mixed bag, especially in recent years, which sees the birth of phenomenal successes such as Rad Rodgers, Shovel Knight, Undertale and Shantae: Half-Genie Hero (despite it’s inferior to its predecessor, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse) and dumpster fires like Bangarang: A Short Film Before Rufio (starring Dante Basco and directed by Jonah Feingold, a butt of a shameful, unprofessional, disrespectful and downright rude director who I have the displeasure of speaking to on social media), Mighty No. 9 and Yooka-Laylee (well according to numerous naysayers and critics) deemed to fail to...
