#6: Gato Roboto (2019, Nintendo Switch)
What do you get when you take a small cat in a mech suit and a mission to save a distant planet? Well, you get Gato Roboto, of course! In this bite-sized Metroidvania adventure, you'll do just that. Navigate an alien planet as a small cat named Kiki armed with a powerful mech suit as you collect powerups, discover secrets, take down enemies, and more!
#5: Void Bastards (2019, Xbox one/PC)
In this episode, we journey deep into the Sargasso Nebula as I review Void Bastards for Xbox One and PC. Void Bastards is a strategy-shooter with roguelike elements from the creative minds behind BioShock and System Shock. You are part of an endless supply of prisoners aboard the Void Ark looking to board enemy vessels, salvage loot, upgrade your weapons, and make it out of the galaxy in one piece. The only issue is, everything is out to kill you. Will you make it out alive?
Indie Reviews #4: Trover Saves The Universe (2019, PSVR)
Justin Roiland (co-creator of Rick and Morty) has another hilarious adventure for you to embark on. In Trover Saves The Universe, an evil alien being named Glorkon has stolen your two dogs, jammed them into his eye sockets, and is threatening to destroy everything. It's up to you and Trover, a timid eye socket monster, to rescue them and save the universe from destruction.
