    The Sinking City review

    The Sinking City

    The Sinking City is well worth playing for the initial rhythm of its casework and the freshness of its setting, but its mechanics, like its mystery, end up flooded. If you want to do a Lovecraft game, in 2019, here’s what you do: tell... more

    Gris

    Gris plays to your aural and optical senses by delivering something exquisite in that area, but lacks a compelling story to prop itself up alongside equivalents. Dumb fun will always be a part of what makes video games so great. But in... more

    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
