Review of State of Mind


Rating by smulan posted on Feb 1, 2019


Excellent game


If you liked Dreamfall, you likely will like this game too. It deals with things similar to those in Martin Ganteföhrs older game Moment of Silence, but in a much more elegant way and with AAA production values. It’s absorbing and fascinating in a way very few games manages to be.

Time Played: 10-20 hours

Review of Sara & the Sarcastic Creatures: Episode 4 - Weirdos on a Train

Impactful


I played this game shortly after it came out in 2012. Seven years later, I'm still thinking about it. As a kid, I just found it so interesting! I wish the cliffhanger had been resolved, and every so often I go online and peek around for any news about it. Sara & the Sarcastic Creatures had a great atmosphere and a lot of charm. I'm still looking for simple online adventure games that approach the memorable nature and surprisingly intriguing plot that this game had.

Review of What Remains of Edith Finch

A beautiful story with great imagery and writing


But it is essentially a movie. I felt much more immersed in Dear Esther and more immersed even in Gone Home (although I found the Gone Home story trite). I think this may be my favorite walking simulator/game-movie, but as a game I found it very thin. The most game-like elements tended to be annoying. It was totally linear. It's a poor video game and a lovely movie.

Time Played: 2-5 hours

A game everyone should have played. The message is too important!


The game is very short, but very nicely made. However, that does not matter for a game like this. The message is SO important, that everyone should have played it. This story can not be told enough. Especially for those who have come in contact with something so terrible as this.

Review of Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror

You never forget your first...


This was my first adventure game.
A long, long time ago. More than 20 years.
It was this game that made me fall in love with adventure games.
I've played better, way better games, but I'm still in love with this game and I still remember many scenes and puzzles. This was a memorable game for me...

Really awesome and fun!


The reviewer is right. Fans, such as yours truly, of the original Larry will not be disappointed. Had a lot of fun and nostalgia with this one.

Review of The Mind of Marlo


Rating by DrHermann posted on Dec 13, 2018


A short easy tale with a twist


I decided to add this title to my collection after reading the stellar review on this site and seeing its easy availability on Steam coupled with an attractively low price. My interest was piqued even though the comedic genre is usually one which I avoid.

On starting the game, I was struck by the simplicity of the design and the very good voice work. The graphics are late 80's pixels and entirely effective for the style of game. The voicework is just right for the type of game too, with an Essex accented character. At least I think it's Essex, certainly the area East of London anyway.

Content wise, the game is quite basic, with just a few easy puzzles and 4 fully playable screens, with 2 more employed during intro and cut scenes. Puzzles are extremely easy and none will require any head-scratching. In fact, as there are so few locations, trying everything on anything would only take a short time for anyone who does somehow manage to get stuck. Thus I'd say this title would make a great introduction to adventure game newbies, though not young kids as there are a few strong expletives thrown in for good measure.

As already mentioned, while this is not my favourite type of game, I enjoyed it and this was perhaps due to the short length (1 hour) meaning it didn't outstay its welcome.

3.5 stars as in spite of the length and simplicity, the price is low, the concept is clever and I did have an hour of fun.
