Dem-OH! August Round-up
It has been a relatively quiet month for demos – both playing them and new demo output. But I have to say I enjoyed my short vacation in the sun and look forward to a couple more time-outs in September and October. It has been a heck of a year but as we wind down into the drowsy Autumn months, I encourage all of you to try something a little different these long cool nights. And if you’re looking to expand your horizons in the world of video games, we may just have the right few cozy games for you to look forward to curling up with this spooky season.

Why isn’t Supraland talked about? Like, ever?! I never see it on Top 10 lists (not even Top 10 unknown games, etc) but it’s so damn fun! First-person 3D puzzle platformer’s aren’t exactly common but even if they were, these titles would stand head and shoulders above the competition. The original made it onto my GOTY 2019 and Six Inches Under, which is described as Supraland 1.5 due to the power-up similarities and story parallels, is absolutely a contender for my list this year. Full of wonderfully terrible humour, constant rewarding power-ups, more secrets than you can shake a shovel at, and some of the best puzzle design you’re likely to come across. The Supraland series deserves to be celebrated. So why not be the first of your friends to take it for a spin, so you can personally start the inevitable chain of recommendations and earn all that second-hand glory for yourself.
