„On balance, my time with SoulWorker has been one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had with this type of game“

Ed Orr,


„I love how it adds more RTS sensibilities to the mix, and even if the Early Access state is a little rough (there's placeholder art, and some pathfinding issues) I can see the potential.“

"Dropzone Preview – A Twist in the MOBA Formula",

„All in all, the whole package sits on a good engine with a large amount of challenge, meaning that it won't get old anytime soon.“

Orcs Must Die! Unchained Closed Beta Impressions - Rock Paper Shotgun

„Orcs Must Die! Unchained doesn’t actually feel like it’s piggybacking, though. It feels more like an evolution of ideas Robot has been developing for years. [Read]

„But just looking through my starting hand it instantly became very clear that Hex is like nothing we’ve seen, especially as far as digital TCG’s go. Each ability and description had me more interested than the last. The cards in Hex are limited only by the creativity of the team making them. Which means there are no limits for Hex. It’s a new game with entirely new and unique cards made specially for the game.“

„Grown ups, though, should be prepared for that sceptical look when they start a quick game of Elsword during their lunch-break. But it might also happen, that their colleagues turn out to be secret teammates who would love to join. It’s tons of fun, playing together with others!“

Martin Deppe,

„[...] the company Gameforge that has its home in Karlsruhe has increased its revenue by 6000 percent in the last five years. Today more than 400 people work at the south german headquarters developing, operationg, marketing and supporting the browser games.“
