The Caligula Effect: Overdose Review

A JRPG that will appeal to fans of the genre with its interesting setting and unique combat system, but it's ultimately marred by tedious battles and dull dialogue.

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.

Bladed Fury Review

Featuring a unique Chinese aesthetic and fun, fast-paced gameplay, Bladed Fury is a great gaming experience brimming with personality.

7'scarlet Review

A beautiful and well-crafted visual novel, 7'scarletexcels at storytelling and manages to create a compelling mystery full of shocking twists and turns.

Eternity: The Last Unicorn Review

Fixed camera angles, boring gameplay, wooden animations, and poor localization all mar Eternity: The Last Unicorn beyond the point of being anything approaching enjoyable.

What Never Was Review

Polished but short, you'll be left wanting more: more puzzles, more story, and more from this developer.

WARRIORS OROCHI 4 Review

Strong mechanics, fun combat, and a lot of replay value are brought down by so-so graphics and a story that’s impossible to follow, yet you’ll still have fun mowing down scores of enemies.

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.

To Hell with Hell Early Access Review

To Hell with Hell uses a plethora of exhaustible masks with abilities to offer a great new mechanic to the roguelike crawler genre, but overall lacks a considerable amount of mechanical fine-tuning.

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.

Smoke and Sacrifice Review

There’s a lot to like here, from gorgeous graphics to a robust crafting system, but frustrating combat and high difficulty early in the game may drive some players away.

Forgotton Anne Review

Be whisked away to the Forgotten Lands in Forgotton Anne, the cinematic side-scrolling platformer that wholly enchants with its outstanding art and captivating storytelling.

Atelier Lydie & Suelle ~The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings~ Review

You might be disappointed if you were hoping for certain aspects from the first two titles in the trilogy to be present, such as Life Points, an open world, mastering specific items, etc. Still, Atelier Lydie and Suelle is an enjoyable and relaxing experience that is worthwhile in its own right.

YUMENIKKI -DREAM DIARY- Review

Yume Nikki: Dream Diary is a visually faithful recreation of the original Yume Nikki, but beyond that, it falls short. A slew of game-breaking bugs and unintuitive gameplay creates a disappointing experience not worth the asking price.

We Happy Few Updates Announced

Compulsion Games has an important update about We Happy Few to share today. Watch the video below for the full details and as well as a sneak peek at gameplay footage from Sally's storyline.

Ayo: A Rain Tale Review

Ayo shares with its audience a sincere message encapsulated by game, and continues the progression we have seen recently of video games used as a vehicle beyond the immediate capacity for ‘interactive entertainment.’ Despite a clunky camera and some problematic puzzles, this platformer boats a solid foundation, with promise of several hours of enlightening fun.

A Hat in Time Review

A Hat In Time has grasped the title of the highest-earning 3D indie platformer ever funded on Kickstarter, and it’s no stretch of the imagination to see why. The story, the play, the graphics, everything it has instills in gamers one of the most comforting and thrilling nostalgic experiences in recent game development history. This platformer is itself a perfect modern game, with all of the classic staples players know and love, rather than being just an old game made in the present day; in a world of constant evolution and innovation, few things are as comforting as a nice easy blast from the past.

Mages of Mystralia Review

Mages of Mystralia is for gamers looking for more than hack-and-slash action RPGs. It has a unique magic crafting system, puzzles, and challenges that compel you to play more, unlock more spell customization options, and grow stronger. Designed for the Steam Controller, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, you’ll master your magic and empower your destiny as you save the world of magic users.

Echo Review

Echo proves that innovation can truly be limitless as long as there are people willing to push boundaries and explore new ideas. With a stunningly flawless trifecta of gameplay, storyline, and visuals, Ultra Ultra has knocked it out of the park with their first foray into indie gaming. Regardless of your tastes, styles, or interests, this adventure is sure to satisfy nearly all of your cravings. The only craving that you will be left with is for more and more game to play.

Slap Village: Reality Slap Review

The uniqueness of this title carries it to the end, and is ready to go for a couple episodes more, leaving you intrigued about the conspiracies and ground-breaking truths you have discovered: a solid couple hours invested in a protagonist you care about, wanting to see it to its end, and then twice over.
