Middara: Unintentional Malum Act I
Unboxing the Anime-infused Adventure
Middara is like walking into your favorite sushi bar, but instead of sushi, they’re serving up a tantalizing array of anime-inspired artwork, character progression, and surprisingly in-depth storylines. The game takes you on a whirlwind adventure of dungeon crawling, turn-based combat, and exploration across a unique world. It’s the gaming equivalent of binge-watching an entire anime series in one sitting – equal parts exhilarating and exhausting.
The Delicious Filling – Character Building
Where Middara stands out from the pack is its fantastic character building and progression. Each of the playable characters has multiple paths they can take, and players can mix and match abilities to create a unique combination of powerful heroes. It’s like building a customizable sushi roll from scratch – except it’s an overpowered magical being instead of a spicy tuna hand roll.

Oathsworn: Into the Deepwood
An Oath to Tell More than Just a Story
Oathsworn is like that beautifully aged and intricate tapestry you see at a museum, telling a story of epic battles and heart-wrenching trials remarkably seamlessly woven in.

Choose Your Own Adventure – A Tapestry of Choices
In addition to its engrossing story, Oathsworn boasts a unique “choose your own adventure” approach to gameplay, where your decisions will ultimately shape the ending of your campaign. It’s like a choose-your-own-adventure book on steroids, offering more in-depth characters, higher stakes, and a chance to flex your decision-making muscles.
