The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince review Article

The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince review

This side-scrolling PS4 exclusive is a lovely fairy tale platforming adventure that stumbles over some pacing and design issues.

The Initiate 2: The First Interviews review

There's more people and admittedly less space than the original, but just as many engaging challenges to be solved in this story-thin, puzzle-centric sequel.

Torn review Article

Torn review

While not particularly deep, this VR-exclusive, physics-based scavenger hunt is a rip-roaring good time while it lasts.

Here They Lie review Article

Here They Lie review

This PlayStation horror exclusive is rich in disturbing atmosphere, but honestly there's very little gameplay or comprehensible story resting deep within it.

Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of the Dusk review

The visual novel series from Japan is back with a new mystery anthology, but even the pretense of gameplay is found lacking this time around.

Without Escape review Article

Without Escape review

This short room-escape adventure rarely gets past its uninspired find-the-key formula that ultimately leads nowhere in particular.

Shiver review

It's far from cozy, but this ultra-short slideshow horror adventure delivers disappointingly few chills.

The Cabinets of Doctor Arcana review Article

The Cabinets of Doctor Arcana review

This unapologetically old-school puzzler is stuffed full of familiar challenges and gothic atmosphere, but very little creativity manages to spill out.

Blind review Article

Blind review

Its haunting atmosphere and echolocation-based mechanics make it worth seeing this VR exclusive through its few missteps in the dark.

This short but lovely time-bending puzzler celebrates the friendship of children as it spirals ever onwards and upwards to a touching finish.

State of Mind review Article

State of Mind review

We're left feeling ambivalent about the transhumanist sci-fi adventure that hinders fascinating themes with an unfocused story, and a unique presentation with underwhelming gameplay.

A promising new puzzle series gets started by substantially expanding the Escape Room formula to an entire suburban home.

Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption review

The Quest for Glory creators are back, showing they're still at the head of the class for classic-styled adventure-RPG hybrids.

The Invisible Hours review Article

The Invisible Hours review

Gameplay is nowhere to be seen, but this voyeuristic whodunit provides a compelling murder mystery in the style of immersive theater.
