Don't most Internet game magazines like Gamespot and IGN have PC game reviews? Wouldn't think reviews of PC games should be hard to find. Just google the title of the game and add review.

Wizards and Warriors II: Ironsword on the NES.

Really hard! Oh my god I had patience back then.

When I think of it, I might actually have played a game even before Super Mario Bros. We had this really old computer at home which my dad sometimes used to write things on. It was one of those really old ones that actually had a black screen with light green text on it, and it couldn't show graphics. I have no idea what the computer was called, though.
Anyway, there was this text adventure on it that I tried out with my dad (since I couldn't read any English when I was just a really small kid, I could barely read at all). I don't know the title of the game, but it involved a dark cave and you could pick up a magic wand to open a door.

OK. It would be interesting to see what games were the first people ever tried. Let that nostalgic feeling from childhood come back to you.
I guess I'll start out.

It was Super Mario Bros. on a rented NES from the video store. I was 6 years old.  ​

My sloth is my loyal companion. We also share intimate moments.

I'm not so sure. I can't say I really liked Machinarium that much. It started out well, but then it turned out to rely heavily on try and failure switch puzzles. I miss proper adventure puzzles.

Well, I can write blog posts about games. But I wouldn't want to violate any site policies.

I'm loving the world map. What maker are you using? That 3D map looks really tempting.

You can write about any games or music or whatever, not just indie games I think. You should PM Drule, we do need a few new writers.

OK. Well, I can always ask him.

Hmm.. well I don't know if I can write only about indie games. It feels a bit limited.

Isn't the main site pretty much dead?

I'm walking around with this desire to speak my mind about games, and a game blog would be the perfect place to do so. The thing is, I don't want to do it on my own. Therefore I try airing the idea of starting up a game blog with intelligent and experienced gamers from around the web, which of course includes you people.

Could this be an interesting thing to do? Starting from scratch, writing about anything game related that you feel confident of writing about. I like Wordpress, but the platform can be a topic up for descussion. I've recently started a game blog of my own here: http://mertesgameblog.wordpress.com/, but I'd rather join a team effort: more updates, more readers.

So, how does this sound? Anyone interested?

Alright, fair enough.

That said, I played the demo today and totally fell in love. Really excellent work so far.

Thanks. Glad you enjoyed it.

Merte, this looks amazing.

But, what about Origin?!

Needed a break from it, to do something different. I hope to continue making it soon.

finished the demo and it was pretty good. the puzzles were clever and made sense.

the graphics are stylish with the whole silhouette look and add to the surreal atmosphere of the game. looking forward to the finished product! :D

just were will Leif go next, the suspense is killing me!

Neat! Glad you enjoyed it.
My brother thought Leif was black and nude, so I'm glad someone understood the style. :)
