10 / 10.0 - Disco Elysium
Oct 20, 2019

Literature-centric game, full of unexpected references and non-standard accents. Detective noir meets deep and charming old-school RPG and going to real masterpiece

Unscored - Pathologic 2
Jun 2, 2019

Sometimes mockingly difficult, sometimes archaic, full of charm (both negative and positive), extremely atmospheric and very deep, Pathologic 2 can be included in the compulsory program on acquaintance with games as art objects. It is the only one. Now in two faces.

Despite its superficiality, 11-11: Memories Retold manages to display the poison that is war, and evokes the feeling of bitterness from the unlearned lessons of history. The game is so humane that you will forgive her many things.

Return of the Obra Dinn is a skillfully woven web of events and destinies. Unraveling it is not only an excellent workout for the mind, but also a real pleasure. Lucas Pope again remolded routine processes into an exciting gameplay, and, most importantly, he gracefully escaped the “second game syndrome”.

7.5 / 10.0 - The Gardens Between
Oct 5, 2018

The Gardens Between is a great way to spend autumn evening, when the bare branches unfriendly huddle outside the window, and the soul is filled with melancholy. It's time to get into the boat of memories and float in the past.

8.5 / 10.0 - FAR: Lone Sails
Jun 2, 2018

FAR: Lone Sails is not long, very simple game, but with perfect rhytm and surprisingly addictive process. So much that you'll want to beat it in one session. And, perhaps, to start anew – it will not reveal something new and will not offer challenges, but it is very pleasant to swim along the waves of its melancholy. Kind of like to read a nice poem and then go over it.

Despite the star authors, Where The Water Tastes Like Wine runs the risk of being overlooked by the general public. Game is very specific in form and deep in content, almost devoid of gameplay in the usual sense. A collection of stories, dipping into folklore and exploring basic American archetypes under the guise of a video game.

9 / 10.0 - Gorogoa
Jan 12, 2018

Gorogoa is a rare example of a game that's unique in form and interesting in content. It's a short (just a couple of hours) game, but with very rich and touching story, really interesting puzzles, and stunning visuals.
