At Pax South 2020 I became enamored by an indie title called Greak. So much so that I had brought over everyone who had come to San Antonio with me over to the booth to play this title by Navegante. Everything from the artwork, music, and overall feel of the game screamed for me to play the demo multiple times. In addition, I found out that not only does Greak have the potential to capture the heart and minds of gamers, the developers are really nice people too. The kind of people you want to root for and ultimately see succeed. I took a few minutes speaking with them as a very excited and intriguing fan to learn as much as I could about the title. The more the developers spoke about the game the more I could tell this game was a passion project and it truly meant a lot to them. Visit their website for more information.
