Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones review: Worth losing your mind over

Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones review
With a dark atmosphere that draws you deeper and deeper, Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones encourages you to solve any situation your way and live with your decisions. A clear sign that I’m getting really into a game is the rituals I develop while playing it — brewing a hot beverage, turning off...

Jenny LeClue review: Choose your own murder mystery

Jenny LeClue review
Gorgeous, well-written and smart, Jenny LeClue is a game for aspiring detectives young and old. Jenny LeClue: Detectivu plays almost like those teen detective novels you used to read when you were young (at least I did). It stars a caffeinate-addicted, cynical version of Nancy Drew who’s out to solve the case of a...

The Surge 2 review: When it gives you a hand, take the entire arm

The Surge 2 review
Despite some buggy textures, minor framerate drops, and a few crashes, action RPG and Souls-like fans will easily fall in love with The Surge 2. The Surge 2, the sequel to Deck 13's The Surge, is finally here, and fans of Souls-likes should be excited. With many improvements over its predecessor,...

Little Misfortune review: Happiness to the world

Little Misfortune review
Choice, consequences, and glitter are at the heart of Little Misfortune, a twisted journey full of charm where you spread happiness in a bleak world or die trying. Little Misfortune is an adorable but morbid adventure game from the creators of Fran Bow, another morbid (slightly less adorable) adventure. It's about a little girl...

Devil’s Hunt review: A fallen angel

Devil's Hunt review demons
Devil's Hunt is a mess of cliché story and awkward combat. Its art direction and camera work are not impressive enough to redeem it. Arcade action games, especially ones with a solid story, are always a joy to play. Devil May Cry and God of War are among the very best in the genre,...

Children of Morta review: Family matters

Children of Morta reivew
Children of Morta is a beautifully crafted pixel art dungeon crawler with a refreshing emphasis on character and a theme rarely seen in gaming: Family. I've always had a soft spot for pixel art games thanks to their simple yet colorful worlds. Children of Morta happens to be one of those games.

Daymare 1998 review: Where evil not longer resides

Daymare 1998 review
Daymare 1998 tries to mix classic Resident Evil with modern horror like Dead Space, but is sabotaged by its own old-school obsession. Daymare 1998 started as a fan remake of Resident Evil 2. Capcom quickly put a stop to it but encouraged Invader Studios to take all the hard work they did and turn...

Creature in the Well review: Hits a few bumpers

Creature in the Well review
Creature in the Well can be a beautiful and intense bullet hell if you can make it past the repetitive first half. I was very excited about Creature in the Well when it was first announced on Nintendo Direct. A dungeon crawler with pinball-based combat and puzzle-solving is an intriguing concept. Besides, I always...

Blair Witch review: Stay out of these woods

Blair Witch E3 2019
Blair Witch so desperately wants to be a psychological horror game, it completely neglects its few clever mechanics. But you can pet the dog. The Blair Witch Project doesn’t have the best history with video games (look it up). I was cautiously optimistic that the new Blair Witch will break this curse. After all,...

Wargroove review: There are always more wars to fight

Wargroove is a fantastic and gorgeous sandbox strategy game that lets you build and share campaigns which are often more engaging than the actual story. Are you the kind of player who loves creating stories and scenarios? Do miss the days of old when playing a turn-based tactical strategy game? Did you grow up...
