Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York review: a rich, bloody VN

Coteries of New York review
Coteries of New York is a highly interactive visual novel with a classic Vampire: The Masquerade story of power struggles and betrayal. You'll face many critical choices, and more importantly - their consequences. I admit I'm not all that into visual novels, but I am a Vampire: The Masquerade fan....

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated review: It’s not ready

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated review
SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated is a platformer suited for children, with a bit of humor for adults. The gameplay is simplistic and often boring, the multiplayer is half-baked, but the game catches that Bikini Bottom vibe. In a pineapple, under the sea, lives SpongeBob SquarePants, a...

West of Dead review: Unfinished business

West of Dead review
West of Dead has everything it needs to succeed, and yet it remains stuck in its own little limbo - forever moving forward but never getting anywhere. The roguelike genre is on fire. It presents indie developers with a priceless opportunity to take a familiar and beloved formula, and use...

Summer in Mara review: A fruitful vacation

Summer of Mara review
Summer in Mara takes some of the best elements from The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and embeds them in a fun and relaxing farming sim that encourages exploration and creativity. I was never a big fan of farming sims like Stardew Valley or My Time at Portia. But after...

Beyond Blue review: Studying the sea, under the sea

Beyond Blue review
Inspired by the Blue Planet 2 series, Beyond Blue is the perfect example of how to make a game about making a documentary, but not much beyond that. Developed and published by E-line Media, Beyond Blue is a single-player underwater simulator where you play as a marine biologist, tracking a...

Genki Covert Dock review: Small, portable, and powerful

Genki Covert Dock
Genki Covert Dock will make your Switch more portable than ever. It's small, easy to use, and does everything its official big brother does. Did you ever have to go away for the weekend, and just decided to settle for using your Nintendo Switch in handheld mode the whole time,...

Evan’s Remains review: One jump ahead of a mystery

Evan's Remains review
Evan's Remains is a beautiful game where the story is more puzzling than the riddles. It is a short, story-driven adventure with simple gameplay that's full of tough decisions and mystery. When I first glimpsed Evan's Remains, I couldn't imagine that I'll develop so many feelings in so little time....

Liberated review: Come for the game, stay for the comic book

Liberated review
Liberated is part comic book and part side-scrolling shooter. The comic book part is excellent and tells a powerful dystopian story. The game part? Not so much. Liberated is split into two pretty separate experiences. One is an engaging comic book about a dystopian world where Big Brother is everywhere....

Atomicrops review: An absolute blast of a game

Atomicrops review
Atomicrops takes several fan-favorite genres, sticks them in a blender, and shoots forward one of the best and craziest games of 2020. We first stumbled upon Atomicrops at Gamescom 2019, just before it went into Early Access. Since then, the game just kept getting better and better with every update...

Detective Boiled-Hard review: A good day to boil hard

Detective Boiled-Hard review
All things considered, Detective Boiled-Hard is a fun, funky, and wacky adventure game developed by one hardcore adventure game and movie fanatic. Because Because Games is back with yet another funny, crude, and at times just plain absurd adventure game. This time, instead of traveling all over the world as...
