What Comes After is an inspiringly told portrayal of the beauty of life. It perfectly balances discussions about suicide, the trials and tribulations of life and the meaning of it all with a detailed and stylised art style that oozes warmth and joy.
Sarawak is a wonderfully crafted narrative adventure that follows an endearing character as she journey's to explore herself and the mysteries of her life. It features a well-written story that's brimming with character, charm, and wit. It has incredible art that complements incredibly vivid prose and fun, engaging puzzles to help make the experience a little more interactive.
The Colonists is a genuinely brilliant game that has nuzzled its way nicely onto the Switch. It is a game filled to the brim with brilliant ideas and an abundance of complexity. Yet its streamlined controls and delightfully helpful tutorial supplies you with enough basics that even casual players will be able to understand.
Genesis Noir is a visually spectacular video game with an enthralling, albeit abstract, narrative. While its more gameplay focused segments often bring the game down a notch, whenever Genesis Noir treats the player to one of its lavishly animated cutscenes, it's hard not to salivate at its gorgeous art style. The eclectic mix of sound and visuals create an experience unlike any other in video game history. Genesis Noir is truly unique, and while not always a fun experience, it is by far one of the most mesmerising adventures I've ever had the pleasure of undertaking.
Cyanide & Happiness - Freakpocalypse is an entertaining game with a bittersweet sense of humour. This won't be for everyone as it is entirely reliant on the player enjoying Cyanide & Happiness' trademark cynically crass humour.
Forgotten Fields is a beautiful game that tells a heartwarming and painfully relatable narrative. While its gameplay can be shallow, and there were numerous visual bugs, Forgotten Fields' narrative is so strong and meaningful that I could overlook its various shortcomings.
