    The Last Day of June review

    Last Day of June

    The Last Day of June is an emotional, gentle puzzle, where you must live one sunny afternoon over and over again to try and avert tragedy. It doesn't feel especially new, but it'll still probably make you a bit teary.  You'll be able to gauge your likely response to The Last Day of June based... more

    Fe review

    Fe

    Fe is all very lovely and (literally) harmonious, with fun layers of platforming. Coloured flowers and singing is a nice enough way to spend a rainy afternoon. If you liked the feel of Ori and the Blind Forest – not the way Ori actually... more

    State of Mind review

    State of Mind

    The originality of its vision and the thrust of its narrative more than excuse some sci-fi clichés, and you’re left with a breezy adventure game which compels with its ideas, if not always with its play. All is not well in the world of Richard Nolan. He’s just been in a... more

    Stay

    Stay’s compelling lead character and gripping dialogue ensures you’ll want to see Quinn’s journey through to the end. It’s just a shame it spends a bit too much time testing your patience with irksome puzzles and some needless waffling. Stay reminds me of those many hours I spent hunched over my computer,... more

    The Occupation review

    The Occupation

    The Occupation is a game of intriguing ideas and sublime atmosphere; the tension of its real-time thrills gives way to a romance with journalistic sleuthing. The Occupation is set in North West England, in 1987, in the fictional... more

    Destroy All Humans! review

    Destroy All Humans (2020)

    I would recommend the remake to anyone with a nostalgic thirst for the original, but so, too, to those that like their laughs with a dark bite. Fifteen years ago, in Destroy All Humans!, the Earth was invaded. The chief... more

    The Pathless

    I would prescribe The Pathless to anyone feeling numbed and locked by our days of inanition; it’s perfect if you feel your home becoming an isle on the edge of the world. If you add up all the games that Matt Nava has worked on, Flower, Journey,... more

    ABZU

    The Bradwell Conspiracy

    The Bradwell Conspiracy is a quiet exploration of resistance under capitalism, and the repercussions of a 'better' world. The environments are extravagantly detailed and the puzzles become increasingly intricate, towards a denouement that's shocking yet grounded in our own experiences. The Bradwell family is best known for developing home appliances and... more
