Creepy Tale 2 review

The dark fairytale sequel feels more visually distinctive than its predecessor, but it's haunted by too many missteps proving that bigger isn't always better.

The hours spent tooling around Studio Fizbin's gorgeous archipelago in this clever, emotionally powerful puzzle-platforming adventure will make you glad you chose to play it.

Ultreïa review

This slickly designed sci-fi adventure sure looks good, but there's little to push it above and beyond to a better-rounded experience.

Though playtime is cut understandably short, this lovely hand-designed papercraft adventure unfolds with abundant charm.

Don’t Forget Me review Article

Don’t Forget Me review

Though it poses some interesting concepts, this sci-fi pixel art adventure's problematic writing and underwhelming gameplay result in an unmemorable experience.

Devotion review Article

Devotion review

Those who relish a more personal, dread-filled type of horror than abject terror will feel great affection for Red Candle's long-awaited follow-up to Detention.

Conspiracy! review Article

Conspiracy! review

This research-based satire of current American events can be mildly diverting for an hour, but those looking for anything deeper should elect to look elsewhere.

The Medium review Article

The Medium review

With great scares and atmosphere but poor storytelling and repetitive gameplay, the quality of Bloober Team's dual-world horror adventure ends up somewhere in the middle.

The Longing review

Those craving a thoughtful, relaxing experience will find it in this beautiful and surprisingly prescient idle adventure spanning 400 real-time days.

Twin Mirror review Article

Twin Mirror review

The cracks begin to show right away in a dual-personality thriller that never really reflects the high standards we've come to expect from the creator of Life Is Strange.

Monkeys & Dragons review Article

Monkeys & Dragons review

This retro-styled adventure tries hard to ape its LucasArts inspiration, but it all goes up in smoke due to a number of major design issues.

Carto review

This charming mapmaking adventure is all about the journey of joyous discovery unfolding, at times forgetting it even has an end destination.

Lucifer Within Us review Article

Lucifer Within Us review

There are plenty of strong elements in this unique supernatural detective mystery, but its ease and streamlined approach barely give them a chance to come out in force.

There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension review Article

There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension review

There is no review of a non-game that isn't a brilliantly hilarious deconstruction of various genres while still not remaining a delightfully clever outside-the-box adventure at heart.

Ourea review Article

Ourea review

This lovely environmental puzzler could have rocked if not for its painfully short length that only teases bigger, better things.
