Conarium review

The high point of this atmospheric 3D horror is its rich Lovecraftian lore, but the gameplay experience supporting it falls flat.

Quern: Undying Thoughts review

While breaking no new ground, the Myst legacy lives on in this highly polished, puzzle-packed indie adventure.

Barrow Hill: The Dark Path review

The unexpected horror sequel treads a very familiar course, but leads once again to some largely effective atmosphere and gameplay.

Monumental review

This indie puzzler is a massive disappointment that hearkens back to the genre's dreary days of poor Myst clones.

Dream review

This surreal adventure largely wastes its potential as a Myst-style sleeper, and a host of bugs serve as a rude wake-up call.

Homesick review

This short first-person adventure is rich in melancholy atmosphere, but its flimsy story isn't much to write home about.

Pneuma: Breath of Life review

While its metaphysical premise seems fresh at first, this 3D puzzler winds up feeling stifled by its familiar formula.

MIND: Path to Thalamus review Article

MIND: Path to Thalamus review

This beautiful first-person puzzler looks and plays like a surreal dream, but neither its story nor puzzles will put much demand on your frontal lobe.

Among the Sleep review

This unique horror seen through the eyes of a two-year-old is rich in creepy atmosphere but its gameplay is a bit wobbly on its legs.

The Journeyman Project: Pegasus Prime review

Updated and re-released, the 2014 edition looks better than ever, though its cosmetic makeover can't hide all of the original game's shortfalls.

Eleusis review Article

Eleusis review

Steeped in early atmosphere, even optional enemies can't sustain the tension through this 3D horror adventure's weak story and puzzles.
