The Blind Prophet review: Fighting demons and minigames

Despite a few minor flaws, The Blind Prophet is a solid adventure game with a dark story, classic point-and-click puzzles, and a beautiful hand-drawn art style. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, a year in development, and a few delays, The Blind Prophet - Blood of the Apostle is now available to all.

Effie review: Nostalgia spread a little too thin

effie
Inspired by multiple classic titles, Effie combines fun combat and platforming with an empty world to underwhelming results. I'm a massive fan of platformers and colorful action-adventure games. Being on the same playing field as indie gems like A Hat in Time and the wacky Lego games, Effie has its work cut out for...

Lightmatter review: Shines bright, but still overshadowed

Lightmatter review
Lightmatter is a gratifying puzzle game with a simple premise. It plays, looks, and sounds fantastic, but could do with fewer Portal references and a more robust story. It's been 13 years since Portal came out and blew us all away with its mind-bending puzzles and insanely good writing. Ever since then, we occasionally...

Killer Chambers review: Oh Lord I died 273 times

Killer Chambers
Killer Chambers is an unforgiving action-platformer - a classic bullet-hell that will put your pattern-memorizing abilities and reaction time to the test. Jump over, duck under, and dodge deadly projectiles. But nevermind how good and how quick you are, your blood will still decorate the walls of the chamber.

Ashen review: The world is brighter together

Ashen review
Ashen borrows a lot from the Dark Souls series, but adds enough new elements to forge its own way and create a friendlier experience. You can't avoid it - Ashen borrows everything from Dark Souls. The combat system, enemies that lurk in dark corners waiting to jump you, the healing flask, manual saving at...

Cardpocalypse review: Play like a 90’s kid, fight like a 90’s kid

Cardpocalypse review
Cardpocalypse is a cute title with simple but solid card game mechanics. It brings the '90s back and successfully charms you with its nostalgic mojo. Cardpocalypse brings a new card game to the table. It is easy to grasp, harder to master, but eventually, you'll dominate over every kid in your class.

Mosaic review: A cog against the machine

Mosaic review
A bleak point-and-click about work-life balance. Mosaic's dull atmosphere is punctuated with unique visuals, the power of music, and some seriously trippy gameplay. Mosaic is a statement about grind-culture and the stress, helplessness, and disillusionment burnout can cause. Or, it's a game about blowing off work to do recreational drugs with a bunch of...

Still There review: Existential drama between puzzles

Still There
Sci-fi, surrealism, and emotional turmoil come together to create Still There, a story about a grief-stricken astronaut floating in space and solving intricate puzzles. Still There is part complex puzzle game, part moving story about a man hiding from his past. The two parts often clash, which makes the game’s tone shift dramatically from...

Tools Up review: Hilarious couch co-op that’ll fix up your party

Tools Up is a couch co-op party game that builds up the laughs. Work Together to renovate someone's dream home, or throw your friends around for fun. Tools Up is a four-player co-op that'll immediately remind you of Overcooked. But instead of cooking, you renovate apartments or at least try to hilarious results.
