Taryn is a digital content strategist with an avid appetite for literature and gaming. She graduated from the University of Washington Bothell with a degree in Culture, Literature, and the Arts, and since then has been engaged in copywriting for businesses from AutoNation to DirtFish Rally School. While she'll happily play most games set in front of her, Taryn heartily prefers a good ol' turn-based strategy RPG, such as Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia and Divinity: Original Sin.

Puzzle your way through tiny, meticulously beautiful landscapes in Umiro, the minute indie title that proves that great things do sometimes come in small packages.

Puzzle your way through smoothly-textured environments and command an army of Guardians in Masters of Anima, a noteworthy genre-fusing indie.

The Adventure Pals is a cartoonish romp with bombastic platforming gameplay that’s as addictive as it is silly. Easy controls and eye-popping art contribute to a candy-sweet experience — one that ultimately leaves you wanting something a little more substantial.

Grow your kingdom and unite the world in peace in Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, an ambitious JRPG title that offers a visually astounding treat alongside (mostly) on-point gameplay.

Equal parts charming and cheeky, Minit plays on a 60-second time mechanic that keeps you hotly anticipating every moment. Nostalgic black-and-white art and straightforward puzzles contribute to Minit’s unique simplicity — a simplicity which, ultimately, is both its strength and its final drawback.
