Untitled Goose Game is neither deep nor thought-provoking. But it's so, so, so fun, and that's enough for what it wants to be. House House proves, once again, that they can transform any unusual idea into a one-of-a-kind experience, funny from beginning to end.

6.5 / 10.0 - Creature in the Well
Sep 22, 2019

Creature in the Well is not memorable, but potentially really fun in parts. If you can ignore the repetition and monotony in some levels and let yourself dive into the game's captivating and beautifully-crafted atmosphere, it's possible to enjoy the experience.

Headliner: NoviNews has some good intentions and can be very good during some sections of gameplay, but an oversimplified political system and lacklustre art and sound directions prevent the game from fulfilling its full potential. Having said that, it can still be a good entry point for people who want to get into the world of politics in a more meaningful way.

9 / 10.0 - Slay The Spire
Jul 20, 2019

Slay the Spire is one of the most fun and refined games released this year, be it in its game mechanics, its strategy elements, its choice possibilities or its soundtrack. That's why its lacklustre art direction surprises me so much.

7 / 10.0 - Baba Is You
Jul 2, 2019

Baba is You has very high peaks, especially in the early stages and in the introduction of new rules, but its lows are terrible. Trying to be extremely difficult, it ends up with a bad, frustrating, and stale level design. The game seems to have forgotten that less is usually more.

7 / 10.0 - Pikuniku
Feb 24, 2019

Pikuniku is a little game that can be a lot of fun and even funny at times, but is, most of the time, monotonous and unoriginal. It shines brightest when it's not afraid to be naturally quirky but sometimes tries too hard to fabricate quirkiness that doesn't belong.

9.5 / 10.0 - The Red Strings Club
Feb 11, 2019

Loaded with philosophy, The Red Strings Club is able to capture the player in a narrative that is deeply controversial and full of dualities with simple but satisfactory gameplay, reaching its pinnacle with one of the best endings ever in a game.

9 / 10.0 - GRIS
Dec 29, 2018

From the first cutscene, GRIS shows what it is here for. Fully committing to its minimalism, it knows how to balance sentimentality and reflexion, noise and silence, to create an experience like no other. This game is truly a work of art.

4 / 10.0 - Desert Child
Dec 24, 2018

An aesthetically pleasing game is worthless if its gameplay is repetitive, dull and unimaginative. Oscar Brittain seems to not have realized that on time, unfortunately, and Desert Child ended up becoming another beautiful but extraordinarily shallow indie game.

It's hard to find flaws in Return of the Obra Dinn. Everything's so polished and well-planned, completely new and familiar at the same time. There's nothing even similar to this game on the market, and, when it was over, I just wanted to keep investigating more strangers' destinies for hours on end.
