Today we're looking at the last of our 'New Beginnings', and to finish up the month, I thought I'd take a look at a strange little game that's a bit quirky.
Specifically, that's Eets.

There is always something interesting about seeing a game set in someone else's world. Today's game does exactly that.
Some may know of the Majesty series, started by Cyberlore Studios, with the world of Ardania. Today we're looking at the Defenders of Ardania.

Zombies, everyone loves zombies. And in some of the games we've looked at, they've been major components of the underlying theme in the game - part of the storyline but not using the zombies as part of the mechanics.
Today's game not only features zombies thematically, but also as major mechanics in the game itself - and that game is Containment: The Zombie Puzzler.

Today we're taking a look at a game I picked up in one of the indie bundles - that like Ninja Garden, seems to not be really an indie game. (At least, when it made its way to Steam it was published by a separate firm.)
We're taking a look at Bad Rats - 'the Rats' Revenge'.

Well, yesterday we looked at a game that began with the letter Z, and before we head back round the alphabet again, let's take a quick look at a game whose name starts with a number.
Today, then, we're taking a look around 3079. The game still seems to get gameplay-changing updates, so in the interests of clarity, I'm looking at v2.18.9.

Well, I didn't have any games that fitted 'New Beginnings' that began with the letter Y, so without further ado, I moved onto Z.
Today we're taking a look at Ziro.

Today we're taking a look at a quirky RTS game, called XIII Century.
The notion of a medieval battle RTS that has strategic consequences (more than just simple RTS techniques) intrigues me. Let's hope the game plays out.

Today on Game A Day, continuing our New Beginnings theme, we're taking a look at a game that I've not only not played, but if it weren't for having picked up a collection, I'd never have even heard of.
Today, I'm taking a look at The Wizard's Pen, by PopCap Games.

Today's instalment of Game-A-Day is definitely a quirky one. There actually are surprisingly few games that begin with the letter V, but we'll what this V game brings.
Without much further ado, we're looking at Vessel.
