Jewel Match Solitaire L’Amour by Suricate Software is coming to Steam for PC.

This follows a similar agreement to bring Suricate’s other Jewel Match Solitaire titles to Steam last year.

Jake Birkett, owner of Grey Alien Games said: “We are delighted to publish Suricate Software’s romantic themed game on Steam. Jewel Match Solitaire L’Amour is a truly charming game and we think it’s just right for Valentine’s Day.”

Grey Alien Games has several of its own titles on Steam, including Regency Solitaire and solitaire-driven RPG, Shadowhand.

Jewel Match Solitaire L’Amour is due to launch on 14 February, 2019.

My 2018 Indie Game Picks (PC)

Saturday, January 12th, 2019

Each year I put the most interesting and fun PC games I playd in a folder. Most of them are indie(ish)

Here are my 2018 picks (note that they may not have been new in 2018):

I got very addicted to Kingdom (and it looks great). I thought Intro the Breach and Slay the Spire were very clever. I played a bunch of shoot ’em ups for fun. Some card and turn-based combat games for research (many did not make it onto this list). And I played a bunch of other weird things, some of which were great!

What were your 2018 picks?

My 2013-2016 Indie Game Picks (PC)

Saturday, January 12th, 2019

Every year I put PC games that were fun and/or interesting into a special folder. Most of then are indie games but an occasional AAA game creeps in sometimes.

The games weren’t necessarily new that year but that was just when I happened to play them.

Anyway, here are my lists from 2013-2016. Do you remember playing some of these?


My favourite game was FTL. I got super-addicted to it and managed to beat it eventually.


Steamworld Dig is a fantastic game and the newer Steamworld Dig 2 is even better. Also Crypt of the Necrodancer was great.


Darkest Dungeon was fantastic, and hard, and it made an impression on me. Shovel Knight was also really great, and so were many of the other games I played that year.


Legend of Grimrock 2 was my favourite. I’ve been a fan of Dungeon Master style games ever since the Amiga.
