As a story it's fine, but as a game I expect so much more than what's on offer. Perhaps if the developers had invested in making an audiobook rather than a full-on videogame, they would have produced a better product.

9 / 10.0 - The Textorcist
Apr 29, 2019

One of the most polished, well thought-out indie titles I've played recently featuring a solid theme, beautiful visuals and a learning curve that'd rival you-know-what… yeah, I reckon you should try this one.

There are good ideas here, but I wouldn't say the game is worth playing. Even if you are a survival game nut or seriously invested in long, drawn out stories, I'd probably recommend against grabbing this one.

7.5 / 10.0 - TSIOQUE
Feb 22, 2019

Charming visuals, puzzle solving, medieval fantasy, there's literally nothing else you need in your life. I had a few frustrations here and there, but all in all TSIOQUE felt so worth my time; grab it for a rainy day, curl up on the sofa and prepare for a game best experienced first hand.

The game encapsulates the frustration and confusion that I have often heard Kafka's work draws upon. Unfortunately, these things work about as well in a videogame as a dollop of jam does in a classic novel. I'd avoid unless you really like the author.

8 / 10.0 - Hollow Knight
Apr 29, 2017

A unique, technically impressive and mechanically sound addition to the metroidvania subgenre. Hollow Knight is a great challenge, not lacking in any of the quality expected of similar, yet higher profile titles.

It's not bad as such, just not particularly challenging. Adam Wolfe does some interesting things to keep the player involved, but fails to stimulate in the way that this kind of fiction really should.

9 / 10.0 - Tales of Berseria
Feb 5, 2017

A combination of complex characters and gameplay makes this one as satisfying as it is enjoyable. Even if you haven’t played any of its predecessors, Tales of Berseria is more than worth your time.

8.5 / 10.0 - OneShot
Dec 31, 2016

It’s short, but worth every second of your time. This version is somewhat more forgiving than the original, much to my disappointment, but the visuals, atmosphere and narrative come together to create a particularly impressive experience.

8.5 / 10.0 - Xanadu Next
Dec 26, 2016

One of those games that can be appreciated regardless of how long it’s been around – Xanadu Next makes some brilliant use of videogame elements that we have all come to love, and although the player often lacks meaningful choice the game is never truly restrictive.
