The Shadows That Run Alongside Our Car (2016)

The Shadows That Run Alongside Our Car is a short but powerful little visual novel about two strangers running from the the zombie apocalypse.

Pervasive Pixels: Fondly remembered games

Crowbarska made one of those list posts on Facebook a couple of weeks ago that got me thinking. The gist of it was to list the ten games that have had the most impact on you. Not necessarily “teh best games evah” or even ten of your favourite games, but those which have struck a chord and stuck with you long since you first experienced them.

The Dream Machine is a traditional point-and-click adventure game, hand-crafted using a combination of clay, 3D graphics, Photoshop wizardry and the all important creative flair.
