Hello and welcome to Parcival Plays. I am a Scottish gamer writing reviews, primarily of indie and early access games, aiming to post new content weekly.
Please check out my social channels using the buttons to the right and navigate my articles using the buttons above.


Parcival Plays is the part-time project of a Scottish gamer in his 30's.
I have been playing games on a variety of platforms since the early 90's on a Commodore 64, through an Amiga 1200 and onto PC, Dreamcast, Gamecube and Xbox360 through the 2000's. Now I play almost exclusively on my Windows PC.

In recent years, I have developed a particular interest in indie games which will form the core of my content, however I do dip into higher profile games from time to time

The idea for Parcival Plays grew out of a conversation I had with some friends in June/July 2018. As part of a project we were involved in, there was discussion about establishing a blog and featuring content by members of the community. As a pre-cursor, I began to write a couple of reviews to have some content ready. Unfortunately the blog for the project didn't come to fruition, and Parcival Plays was born.

If you have a game you would like to see featured, or are a developer who feel your game would be a good fit for my outlet, please feel free to get in touch by email on Twitter (@ParcivalP) or the Parcival Plays Discord server.
