About me

kkatlasHi! My name is Katrina and I am a freelance writer and artist based in Melbourne, Australia. My passion is video game journalism and I have previously contributed to publications like:

I currently weave words for Gameranx & GameGrin. I have loved games since I was a child, and that passion has never faded. One of my fondest memories is playing Tetris for the first time on a tiny handheld device, and not realising there was a rotate button.

Languages fascinate me – especially Japanese. If you’ve ever heard someone say that learning a new language allows you to see through new eyes-it’s definitely true.

If I wasn’t a writer, I’d be a drummer or guitarist for a heavy metal band. Seriously.


This particular blog you’ve stumbled upon is primarily dedicated to game reviews, battles, and analyses, but I may go off on a linguistic tangent from time to time. To read my crazy ramblings on various games, just click whichever square screams ‘read me.’ I also post a lot of art work here, some of which is available to buy from the K.K.Atlas Art Shop. I have loved drawing ever since I was a kid, but these days I really enjoy painting a lot too. In my spare time I like to compose music, and if you visit the K.K.Atlas Art Shop page, you can hear one of my original songs (Whirlpool) playing in the background.

In the future, I hope to make my own games that teach people something. A really good site for making your own games is Sploder, which is what I used to make a game called “Nihongo no tesuto” or My Japanese Test. Click here to give it a go – I hope you learn something from it!

P.S. Yes, I stole Alex from Tomb Raider’s shirt.

  1. Hey Katrina, recently started goblin sword, and so far it’s a great play. Definitely pays homage to some of my favorite games from the NES/SNES days. Anyway, maybe a dumb question, but I noticed a quest was put out 10 torches. I’ve found numerous torches but can’t figure how to us them out!


    1. Hi Dylan, I’m glad you found it! Definitely agree, I would love a few more games like this. No, not dumb at all, you can use either the ice sword or wave sword. Then just stand next to the torch and slash, it will be extinguished. Good luck with all the other quests:)
