Eclipse: Edge of Light

review Eclipse: Edge of Light

This alien world VR adventure makes for a bit of jetpack-boosted fun, but the novelty quickly passes without much gameplay or story to support it.

Veritas

review Veritas

There's no escaping its lack of fine-tuning, but the truth is, this indie sci-fi adventure really excels in its puzzle-centric gameplay.

Detective Boiled-Hard

review Detective Boiled-Hard

You'll find far more laughs than story or gameplay complexity in this short but very funny indie detective comedy.

Interactivity: The Interactive Experience

review Interactivity: The Interactive Experience

This short meta-narrative adventure exhibits similar ideas to The Stanley Parable, but pushes enough right buttons to be worth a look.

Cloudpunk

review Cloudpunk

This open world cyberpunk adventure is light on gameplay but delivers big, by air and land, with its impressive dystopian backdrop and the stories of those who populate it.

The Secrets of Jesus

review The Secrets of Jesus

This what-if take on the life of Christ attempts to hammer home its Biblical foundation but fails in its execution due to an overwritten script and underwhelming gameplay.

From Beyond: Prologue

review From Beyond: Prologue

This MacVenture-style throwback series shows promise, but here and now this Lovecraftian debut is merely a stage-setter for more to come.

Night Lights

review Night Lights

This charming little puzzle-platformer has some nice ideas dealing with light and shadow, but it runs out of power just when it should be ramping up.

The Room VR: A Dark Matter

review The Room VR: A Dark Matter

The popular puzzle game series makes an enlightened first foray into the realm of virtual reality with another substantial challenge.
