Why the hell would anyone release a 2017 ‘Game of the Year’ list… in June 2018? Not only is everyone done with last year, but people are already discussing game of the year contenders for 2018. Well we here at Quiet Stories never got round to it, and we actually have a unique set of choices.
This is the first official edition of the Quiet Stories’ Book Club, a monthly series where we challenge you to beat at least one of the games on our list. We’ll have expansive and time consuming games, for gamers on a limited budget. We’ll have smaller, more digestible titles, for gamers with little spare time. We’ll showcase a variety of genres and platforms. We’ll recommend the newest, most talked about games, and some older titles that you probably heard about but didn’t give the time of day to. The point is, we’ll have something to cater to everyone’s needs. Hopefully you’ll end up trying something new or discover a hidden gem.
For our first month, what’s old is new. Here are 8 older games we recommend you pick up from a bargain bin and try out.
It seems unlikely that the Middle Earth series will continue. So what game will feature the nemesis system next? A Mad Max game, a Harry Potter game or what about a Suicide Squad game?
We’ve made a game… sort of.
Every month, the Quiet Stories Blog provides you with a list of titles we think you should check out. Some might by new releases, while others are titles that may have slipped past you. These are our picks for April 2018.
Today I must announce the sad news that Video Game Abominations will not be releasing. Video Game Abominations was a satirical encyclopedia filled with all your favorite video game characters. Written and illustrated by myself (Chris Bowring), this was to be Quiet Stories first official book. We launched on Kickstarter in April, with a goal of $15,200 NZD, and as of today, funding ended with $1882 NZD raised (12% of our goal).
These are the best games for every platform, recommended by the Quiet Stories team. These are the games you should play and should keep your eye on going forward.
Episode 7 of Fist Fight will (for now) be the last. Now that Quiet Stories is transitioning into game development we just don’t have the time to continue this great series. For this final episode Nick stands in for Casey to discuss A Way Out and Chris interviews one of the developers behind Mulaka.
“It was only after getting 12 hours into the campaign, that I realised what Alien: Isolation was doing to me. I soon found I was struggling to cope with work, my anxiety was higher than it had been in months and my depression had come back hard.”
