Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Gods Will Be Watching’

Gods Will Be Watching

Here’s something I’m getting tired off…indie games using retro graphics. We’ve had enough. On the other hand, when it’s supported by an original concept, a unique gameplay mechanic and interesting characters the game could be made out of matchsticks and still interest me. That brings us to Gods Will Be Watching, which is already a great … Continue reading

Cheap Games Tuesday: ‘Five Nights at Freddy’s’
