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 Article

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.

Its beauty and unexpected relevance may just have you yearning to check out this subterranean shelter-in-place adventure spanning 400 real-time days.

Song of Horror review Article

Song of Horror review

The complete five-verse permadeath horror series largely squanders its richly atmospheric presentation with a number of noteworthy design issues.

In Other Waters review Article

In Other Waters review

This sim-styled exploration of an alien ocean is richly imaginative and thoroughly engaging, delving deep into themes that are sure to hit close to home.

The Gateway Trilogy review Article

The Gateway Trilogy review

This short game collection from the creator of The Dream Machine provides a welcome puzzle challenge in a surreal story that's too abstract to be accessible.

Summit of the Wolf review Article

Summit of the Wolf review

This fantasy adventure from Unimatrix is elevated by its powerfully emotional themes, but let down by its underwhelming presentation.

Arise – A Simple Story review Article

Arise – A Simple Story review

This emotionally symbolic examination of a lifetime of memories is elevated by its gorgeous visuals, challenging time-manipulation puzzles, and thought-provoking themes.

Creepy Tale review Article

Creepy Tale review

This richly atmospheric side-scroller is a compelling journey through the big bad woods, though it also feels eerily similar to another artist's work.

The Blind Prophet review Article

The Blind Prophet review

This grim and gritty religious-themed adventure nails its graphic novel-style aesthetic, but possesses too many gameplay and translation issues to fully recommend.

Sally Face complete review Article

Sally Face review

Behind its traditional point-and-click facade, this one-of-a-kind five-part adventure series is a bold, sometimes baffling, always surprising blend of memorably offbeat adventuring.
