In this gameplay video, Ready Set Indie Games plays Gloom.

In Gloom, you play as a character who suffers from amnesia and upon falling asleep drift into what is known as the Common Dream. Gathering the pages of the Necronomicon you try to make sense of what is going on while battling all types of creatures, but be careful because when you die. You start off at the beginning.

The gameplay was interesting, I would have liked something to show what the controls were. I figured them out as I played and ended up looking in options to see what the control setting was. Overall, the game was really interesting and I did enjoy the pixel art of the game.

In this gameplay video, Ready Set Indie Games plays Monster Prom 2: Monster Camp.

Monster Prom 2: Monster Camp is the sequel to Monster Prom. In this visual novel, you must now woo and wow one of the new perspectives. I am really impressed with what the developers have done with the sequel. They have added filters to the game which tones down a lot of the things, that may be too much for some people and that made me happy because I really enjoy the visual novel but was a little put off with some of the things from the first game.

Therefore adding the filters was an excellent choice and made this an even more enjoyable playable experience. Of course, there are still some things the filter doesn't block, but for the most part, it tones it down a lot.

There is also a filter you can turn on for those who didn't play the first Monster Prom which is what I did so for those who didn't play the first game, this is spoiler-free and does not mention the first game.

Overall, the game is well done and I Highly Recommend it. This can be enjoyed as a single-player game or a local/online co-op game.

In this gameplay video, Ready Set Indie Games plays Enceladus (Web Browser).

Enceladus is a text-based game reminisce of MUD type games popular in the '70s and '80s. I thought the game was interesting as it has been a long time since I played a Text-Based Adventure game, but some of the commands are a bit confusing.

I did have fun with the game and there is a discord for the game, but at the time that I played, there was no one online. So not sure if everyone meets up at one time to play or not.

If you would like to play Enceladus for yourself, you can do so on the following platform(s):
