Forests sure do look beautiful, but even beloved fairy tales warn of the deadly secrets they can conceal. Another such cautionary tale is heading our way later this year in the form of CyberPunch Studios' upcoming The Fabled Woods.
Memories are terribly unreliable things due to the effects of time, perception, and even the emotional impact of events being recalled well after the fact. In fact, they can often become entirely misleading.

Not so, says indie developer Fractalcatz Games, who have recently released the debut installment of their three-part psychological mystery adventure, Related.
The Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson we've come to know and love are distinguished middle-aged gentlemen with years of experience under their belts. But how did such an impressive legacy begin?
