I can’t think of a game in the genre I’d recommend more right now than Fashion Police Squad.

Deck Nine manages to take Life is Strange’s classic signatures of indie music, small-town mysteries, and teenage angst and elevate it from the original creation. What could have been a bumbling soft-reboot of Life is Strange, Life is Strange: True Colors turned into the best game in the series so far.

Sep 6, 2021

If you’re willing to let your guard down, open up your heart, and accept Button City as it is, you will get a very wholesome experience with lots of laughs and some very charming art.

Minute of Islands is an incredibly stunning game with a timely narrative, minimal gameplay, and small platforming puzzles.

Very few games get as much right with their formula as Death’s Door does.

Even among fans of dialogue-driven adventure titles, I couldn’t possibly recommend Last Stop.

2.5 / 5.0 - Scarlet Nexus
Aug 4, 2021

Scarlet Nexus has the foundation of a great idea that’s executed poorly and spends more time introducing new systems than exploring the ones already provided.

I would avoid Cris Tales on the Switch until there’s been some patching done or you’ve tested it on another platform.

I’ve always said that the best and most interesting games are being made at the experimental level in game jams and Essays on Empathy proves that.

Once I found myself hitting my stride in Cozy Grove, it became a before-bed ritual.

May 13, 2021

While I have my grievances, of which there are many, I still really loved playing Element TD 2 and know I’ll be sinking a lot of time into it in the future, especially if any of my issues are resolved.

Mar 23, 2021

Not bested by its predecessor, Bravely Default 2 offers a fairly inoffensive experience with some interesting gameplay tweaks and a very enjoyable job system.

Super Seducer 3 would be good fun to play with a couple of friends on a boring night or to make fun of with some lady friends. Other than that though, my hope is that any particularly lonely gamers don’t use Super Seducer 3 as a blueprint for finding companionship.

Olija is a mysterious adventure that won't overstay it's welcome but leave you wanting more immediately after playing it.

Ryza 2 does little to break the mold, but what it does do is polish the existing formula.

Even though Twin Mirror is listed as a thriller, there’s nothing really thrilling about it.

The Pathless may not be my favorite game, I found quite a bit wrong with it, but the messaging was clear and resonated with me.
