Curious Expedition 2 is a great game during its first hours and expeditions, even excellent. But when there's nothing new to discover — which happens way too quickly for a roguelike — there's not much left to enjoy.

6 / 10.0 - TOHU
Feb 11, 2021

TOHU is not bad, per se, but I would have enjoyed it more were it a cartoon. Its gameplay is way too simple and the solutions to its puzzles way too absurd, resulting in a game that fails to truly captivate at any moment.

3 / 10.0 - Teratopia
Feb 1, 2021

Teratopia doesn't know which genre it wants to fit in, doesn't know who it's for and seems not to be able to decide on a tone to maintain. Even putting aside the appaling lack of ambition, it is deeply flawed in the most basic of concepts, resulting in an experience that's equal parts boring and frustrating.

8.5 / 10.0 - Nuts
Jan 28, 2021

Developed by a team working remotely, NUTS is a unique and surprisingly effective experience for what seems to be, at first, a mere squirrel-photographing simulator. The attention and care put into each and every aspect of the game are tangible, but there's no denying that more gameplay variety and some small adjustments would be ideal for this game to become a masterpiece.

9 / 10.0 - Sunlight
Jan 21, 2021

I don't even feel comfortable talking about Sunlight. It's such an intimate and personal experience that the ideal scenario is to live it at your own pace — to get immersed in this transcendental story with no idea of how it's going to turn out and psychologically prepared to revisit your own past in a journey with a bittersweet destination.

Super Meat Boy Forever is good enough for a bit of entertainment, but there are few reasons to play it over the original game, which is still superior in nearly every aspect.

4 / 10.0 - Calico
Dec 23, 2020

Pets, coffee and cuteness: what could possibly go wrong? Turns out, a lot. Calico proves that good intentions don't automatically lead to good products, with its short development period leading to a game that feels more and more undercooked at every turn.

With unexpected twists, hilarious jokes, and innovative mechanics, There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension is undoubtedly one of the most eccentric and unique games ever released.

9 / 10.0 - Embracelet
Dec 11, 2020

Embracelet is a virtual hug from Machineboy to anyone willing to play it. Somehow, it tells a lovely classic coming-of-age tale with a twist that makes the player feel everything and more, still without tripping on itself.

7 / 10.0 - Superliminal
Jul 7, 2020

Superliminal is interesting and fun for the most part, but the repetitive mechanics and lacking originality in its story and script leave a lot to be desired.
