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!


Hotline Miami 2

This months Not Crowdfunded, But… choices is sure to be one of our more controversial selections.  First off Hotline Miami 2 is one of the more gruesome games on the market, with no shortage of over the top violence.  In addition to it’s content, there’s the game itself; while some people absolutely adore it, others really don’t like it.  Over the next week you’ll see that even the staff of Cliqist can’t agree on how great the game is, but we all agreed that it’s certainly one worth talking about!
