We here at Cliqist love crowdfunded games, but we are gamers just like you guys, and that means we play, well, everything. The “Not Crowdfunded, But…” series will be a regular dose of non-crowdfunded magic from us to you, covering everything from the latest Gears of Halo Theft Auto 5: Bad Creed Warfare Company XIII-2 Sonic’s Return to indie hits and obscure retro titles. Anything goes! The staff here at Cliqist votes on submissions (which you can enter!) and once we have it narrowed down, we do the review!

That’s right, folks, if you have any ideas for games you’d like to see us cover, send us an email at greg@cliqist.com and we’ll add your submission to our own. At that point, our staff will vote and we’ll have stuff to write! Feel free to make multiple submissions (of different games, of course)! Since we’ve been populating our YouTube channel lately, you might even get to see some of our staff bumble around with your favorite games!


How dare we choose Life is Strange for our February Not Crowdfunded, But… game over Grim Fandango HD?  It was a tough decision, but in the end it came down to what Life is Strange has to offer.  While Grim Fandango HD is a fantastic adventure game, and a great blast from the past; Life is Strange is fresh, challenging, and.. different.  Find out more as our coverage of this unique adventure rolls out over the next week.
