Unlucky Seven Early Access Review

Being in Early Access could save the game if things go well, but extensive work is needed to take the nugget of a good story and pull it into a game people can enjoy.

Age of Wonders: Planetfall Review

Despite issues with AI and a level of complexity that will likely frustrate new players, Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a well-rounded experience with stunning visuals and extensive replay value. 

Chook & Sosig: Walk the Plank Review

Chook and Sosig: Walk the Plank is a charming point-and-click adventure title that offers fun for all ages. Despite a few errors in execution, the humor, premise, and choice of endings offers something for everyone to enjoy.

Tropico 6 Review

Tropico 6 involves a huge time investment and a steep learning curve, but it is a solid entry in the management/sim genre.

Anima: Gate of Memories - The Nameless Chronicles Review

Too many things got in the way of enjoying The Nameless Chronicles, as it simply doesn’t seem polished enough. Too spastic in camera movements, too repetitive in fights, and too devoid of scenery makes it hard to appreciate the otherwise interesting story.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm Review

Life is Strange: Before the Storm plays like a cutscene with a point-and-click element that is a joy; no button combinations or consulting a grainy minimap: Daedalus himself designed the levels. The title deals with weighty issues wrapped in stunning visuals and peppered with a comprehensive soundtrack by real artists. This addition to the franchise is a must-play.

Beholder Review

I would highly recommend beholder because the art and music style perfectly captures the story. The struggle between the decisions is one that causes real struggle and emotional turmoil. This may not be a game you come back to over and over, but you’re going to sink your time into a few play throughs to try and make the ‘right’ decisions, whatever they may be.
