Indie Game Showcase – Haunted – Halloween ’85

It’s time to check out Haunted Halloween ’85. I saw this one at PAX East this year, and finally made time to play it. I’m sorry I waited so long. This is a nostalgic beat ’em up with some platforming mixed in. Step in the WABAC machine to 1985.

Available on Steam and NES cartridge for a truly old school retro experience. Check them out on the web at

With tips and tricks on traffic flow, as well as pinching traffic, I hope this will help you address some of these problems and help your city grow.

This is console gameplay, so no mods are available. All of this is done within vanilla Cities Skylines on Xbox One.

We Happy Few Goes AAA

We Happy Few, one of my favorite upcoming indie games, has gone AAA. Gearbox is now publishing it, and regardless of how you feel about Gearbox, it means a price increase to $60.

It also comes along with some of the other trappings of a AAA title including DLC, a Season Pass, and a Collector’s Edition (where the game in NOT included).

Good news is if you already own it via Early Access, you will still get the full game for free, but it’s full price for everyone else. Oh, and of course no DLC included with Early Access.
