Thanks to its tough-but-fair challenge, Playtonic has made a very rewarding game.

7.5 / 10.0 - Nobodies
Sep 30, 2019

Nobodies is one of those little games that won't blow your mind, but is an enjoyable romp nevertheless. There's some neat puzzles thanks to its twist on adventure game logic alongside some devious black comedy. If you can forgive some tedious puzzles at times and some glitching, this is worth your time. Just don't be surprised if you get stumped.

Greedfall, even with its flaws, is a game that’s very easy to sink time into without regret.

5.5 / 10.0 - Darq
Aug 15, 2019

While there are moments where the spookiness clicks, like its hectic climax, the rest is forgettable. It will give a fright once in a while, but that shock quickly disappears.

It can be an alright introduction to the genre for people who haven’t experienced old school adventure games and don’t want to use walkthroughs. Anyone else will find a title that’s pretty, fluid, and underwhelming.

8.5 / 10.0 - The Occupation
Mar 4, 2019

There's a lot to love with The Occupation. It's got humanity, tension, and plenty of little touches that make finding that extra bit of information exciting without the usual violence you've come to expect from stealth games. However, its focus on no manual saving and real-time gameplay will be a dealbreaker. It's not for everyone, but anyone craving consequence and narrative in their stealth game will find a challenge worth facing.

5 / 10.0 - Fimbul
Feb 28, 2019

Even though there's heart and care put into the game's style and use of myth, the same isn't true for the rest of it. It runs fine and the combat is functional, but it won't leave a huge impression. If you're fond of Norse Mythology and don't have much time to spare, Fimbul might be up your alley. A single playthrough is enjoyable enough, but filling up the story thread and replaying the same battles repeatedly isn't worth the effort.
