Aaron Riccio's Reviews

Aaron Riccio's been arguing over the merits of video games since discovering the merits of 1990's Miracle Piano Teaching System straight through to recent kerfluffles over the value of so-called walking simulators. His sweet spot is the intersection between puzzle, action, and adventure games, though he realistically tries to play just about everything, and is an ardent supporter of any artists attempting to break new ground.

Each part is so overflowing with jokes, ideas, characters, and charm that you won't want to separate from the whole game.

For all of the work that Deck 13 has put into creating an intriguing city, the actual exploration is sometimes marred by technical issues.
