You can’t just pop every balloon that floats around in Kimono Cats. It requires players to pay attention to win m’lady’s heart.
Summer is here, and for most people, that means taking an enjoyable walk to enjoy the season! Some may want to visit the park or head to the beach for a stroll along the boardwalk. That’s the vibe Kimono Cats by HumaNature Studios is going for, and in this much anticipated update, you’re playing an unnamed hero with a female companion whom he’s courting. While this “narrative” isn’t fixed as it now offers gender-neutral character designs/customizations, I’m glad the game is being future-proofed!
As for how far the default mode goes, there are a lot of levels to hit, and I’m still not done! Here, players are primarily throwing darts at balloons so that their contents will drop for me to catch and give to Miaow. Her reactions rate how well your progress is. Part of the goal includes winning her heart. It’s a scenario often found in many high school anime in one form or another. As a festival takes place and teens attend it, there’ll be a scene where the boy has to take on some game to win a prize for his girlfriend.

In Jumplight Odyssey, you can build, expand, and customise the Catalina’s decks to create a personalised ship on your journey to the fabled Forever Star.
Available on Steam
League of Geeks has a free playable demo for Jumplight Odyssey, a roguelite colony sim inspired by genre staples and classic ‘70s sci-fi anime. The demo is available to download during the Steam Next Fest, now taking place (June 19-26, 2023), and this sneak peek is looking very retro! This latest project, from the studio behind the hugely successful indie hit, Armello, promises to be a hit.
Here, players start a career as captain of the SDF Catalina. As the overseer, you’re not only preparing to go explore strange new worlds, but also managing the crew of your star cruiser. Here, you can customise the ship’s decks with dozens of fully placeable objects, and do a lot of roster checks so everybody is happy. Like in Yamato (aka Star Blazers), you’re sometimes involved in making sure there’s no conflicts between crew, especially if they have a bridge position.
When Baginski is more caught up with Sony’s God of War for inspiration than to bring in full Wuxia style action in Knights of the Zodiac, what’s presented isn’t all that exciting.
Maybe some long beloved classic anime series should not be adapted to live-action. Technically, that hasn’t stopped some American producers from bringing the best IPs to the big screen, like Alita. When the original studio is involved, sometimes what’s made is a mixed bag. To find the right talents to helm a live action take means checking on their credentials. Knights of Zodiac suffers because Tomasz Baginski’s involvement with The Witcher is a far cry from what this IP represents.
I was hoping for more high stake concerns in the vein of Gods of Egypt instead of a cyberpunk style wannabe Power Rangers episode. That’s because there’s often five warriors working together to honour the name of Athena. But even then, there’s others who will tarnish her role in history; she’s hardly a threat if I remember the series premise correctly.
It’s Fringe Festival season and while its rare to have a show truly dedicated to otakus, Alicein Project wants to change all that with The Guardians of Wonder!
In Los Angeles, the Fringe Theatre scene is even more spectacular when considering the range of talent who have learned the Arts here. The Hollywood Fringe Festival is world renowned! And they will be hosting The Guardians of Wonder, an anime themed spectacular, spectacular by Alicein Project!
This team is better known for their stage adaptation of the popular video game “NieR:Automata,” and “YoRHa” series. It promises to fuse everything fans adore from anime, manga and video games into one really big show, if we’re to borrow a phrase from Ed Sullivan.
Cowboy Bebop, the new sci-fi series streaming on Netflix, follows the exploits of Jet Black and Spike Spiegel, a pair of bounty hunters travelling the solar system while trying to make ends meet. In their line of work,they have to deal with everything the solar system sends their way from drug dealing nut jobs to ridiculous fuel costs and everything in between.
Cowboy Bebop is also based off the classic anime of the same name from 1998 with the same characters and premise. Currently rated nearly 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, many consider it to be legendary, and I’m one of them. So when Netflix announced a live-action remake of Cowboy Bebop, I was excited. Though the fandom immediately split on whether or not this reboot was going to be good or if it should have been made at all. Remakes and reboots rarelyhave a very good track record, but I’m not against them at all, so I decided to becautiously optimistic.
