Children of Morta Review

A beautifully written, composed, and visualized roguelike.

Angelo and Deemon: One Hell of a Quest Review

A humorous and beautifully drawn point-and-click adventure, Angelo and Deemon: One Hell of a Quest is fun to play, but unfortunately falls flat story-wise.

Greedfall Review

Stellar storytelling and an immersive world design makes Greedfall fun to play, but disappointing character customization, poor graphics, and bad animation prevent the title from truly shining.

DARQ Review

Charming and twisted, DARQ is a fantastic and immersive experience that doesn’t overstay its welcome. 

Remnant: From the Ashes Review

Leaping, looting, lacerating, and laughing, Remnant: From The Ashes explodes with character, violence, and a down-right great time in co-op. The procedural generation of the missions presents players with surprises and challenges each time they boot up the title. With its roots in Dark Souls-like gameplay, this is sure to be a powerful title to land in 2019.

Sea of Solitude Review

A title that aims high, but is severely undermined by clunky controls, painful camera movements, and  confusing, cartoonishly over-the-top story elements.

The Sinking City Early Access Review

A challenging detective experience with interesting gameplay mechanics that will appeal to horror fans, but is hindered by wonky controls, loading screens, and an empty world.

Pathologic 2 Review

An interesting narrative and eerie ambience are present, but frustratingly tedious survival features, poor combat, and performance issues plague the title.

A Plague Tale: Innocence Review

A masterfully-narrated moving experience that could not be told in any other media. Imperfect due to railroaded gameplay, but otherwise it could've been a revolution instead of just a great game.

Generation Zero Review

An interesting take on the post-apocalyptic genre, full of beautiful vistas and a streamlined interface. Moments of awe are punctuated with run-ins with the buggy and inconsistent AI.

Eastshade Review

A relaxing and beautiful experience, marred only by the occasional technical issue.

Second Look: The Long Dark

The Long Dark inspires a different, more primal kind of fear than a lot of other survival entries. Bye-bye zombies, hello hypothermia.

Beholder 2 Review

Beholder 2’s strengths include great storytelling, impactful choices, and high replayability, while its weaknesses are unavoidable, repetitive mini-games and lack of fast travel.

Call of Cthulhu Review

While it delivers a strong start, Call of Cthulhu starts to stumble and fall near the end, demonstrating a lack of polish and poor localization.

SINNER: Sacrifice for Redemption Review

Good graphics can’t redeem some of the poorer design choices in SINNER: Sacrifice for Redemption. A very, very rough take on the Soulsborne formula, SINNER is really only for diehard fans that are truly desperate for something new to cut their teeth on.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Review

Despite some frame-rate stutters, slight audio-visual desyncs, and the occasional bad texture rendering, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is eerie, challenging, thoughtful, compelling, and downright fun.

PLANET ALPHA Review

Breathtakingly beautiful, but short and without much variety, means that you’ll probably really have to love side-scrollers to fully enjoy Planet Alpha.

The King's Bird Review

The King’s Bird is a momentum-based platformer with smoothly vibrant visuals and a story that’s as indecipherable as the vague objects in its backgrounds.

We Happy Few Review

We Happy Few is far from flawless, but ultimately makes up for it with its fascinating story of a comically-dark dystopia.

The Sojourn Announced

Publisher Iceberg Interactive and indie developer Shifting Tides reveal The Sojourn, a first-person puzzle game in which you traverse parallel worlds of light and darkness in search of answers to the nature of reality. The Sojourn is slated for release in 2019.
