The Cabinets of Doctor Arcana review

TARTARUS review

Judgment is delivered: This sci-fi adventure in space cooks up a tedious overload of anachronistic DOS-style command line puzzles and very little else.

The Book of Unwritten Tales 2

The Book of Unwritten Tales 2

An epic tale that reunites some much-loved characters and recreates the magic of good, old-fashioned point-and-click adventuring in a hyper-attractive world, the Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is a must-play for fans of the genre.

Silence

Silence

Silence offers a captivating mix of innocent delight layered over an undercurrent of wistful sadness, wrapped up in lovely art and music. The story could have done with a bit more flesh on its bones, but it’s filled with nuance and heart.

The Wardrobe

The Wardrobe

For a game about the undead, The Wardrobe is ironically packed with life. A few unfair puzzles can’t dampen its sheer enthusiasm and sense of fun.
