Underneath its flaws, Gamedec is a truly unique game that I could spend 30 more hours in.

8.5 / 10.0 - Black Book
Aug 5, 2021

Black Book has surprised me with how charming, self confident and thoughtful its systems are, even if its pacing is a little inconsistent and some acts are better than others.

Chicory is a wonderful, creative outing that is as grounding as it is it bursting with charm.

Jun 10, 2021

Overboard! is an excellent exploration of the whodunit genre that is both grounded and willing to do whatever it likes. This, in turn, makes it incredibly likable.

6 / 10.0 - Biomutant
May 24, 2021

Biomutant is like listening to that song your friend just adores but you don’t have it in you to tell them you don’t like it. You smile your way through it but the experience you really like is watching them talk about it. You stomach the song because you love your friend.

9 / 10.0 - MAMIYA
May 2, 2021

Sometimes, Mamiya gets you to analyze yourself in ways that are uncomfortable, but those moments of clarity bring the narrative back down to a place that's as fascinating as it is haunting.
