You will probably leave with several favourite characters, having glimpsed their lives beyond that one night of supernatural threats. You’re never left in doubt about what the threat actually is, and that only serves to prove that classic monster and ghost stories still work despite all their tropes, or indeed precisely because of them. The Quarry’s charming writing and cinematic presentation make it an engrossing horror caper – even if this is, paradoxically, a game that’s often at its best when you’re not actively playing it.

The mind behind Threes brings us this 'cosy-crunchy' turn-based adventure that's delightfully deep and brilliantly approachable.

No Recommendation / Blank - Kena: Bridge of Spirits
Sep 21, 2021

Kena is smooth as a pebble - a game engineered to be so unoffensive there's no reason not to play it, or to play it at all.

A strong love for storytelling and the feel of games like Earthbound makes Eastward shine even where the gameplay flags.

No Recommendation / Blank - 12 Minutes
Aug 18, 2021

There's quality within this intriguing time loop, though by the end you're left wondering whether the core idea is a good one after all.

Capcom shakes up the formula slightly for this enjoyable historical romp rooted in real-life events.

A beautifully realised old school JRPG whose only downfall is its story of all things.

No Recommendation / Blank - Minute of Islands

Minute of Islands is a beautiful thing, but the gameplay can't keep up and there's no real narrative to be found.

Thanks to its adorable characters and a story that makes no excuses for how absurd it is, World's End Club is a lot of fun.
