The Wreck is an ambitious game with a twisting web of narrative that, despite a few frustrating gameplay moments, admittedly brought me close to tears by the end. Regardless of any technical issues, a good story about mothers, daughters, and the wrecks our relationships leave behind is always one worth experiencing.
Despite some mechanical gripes, Cult of the Lamb is delightfully blasphemous in the best of ways, from the creepy-cute visuals to the fast-paced roguelite combat to the engrossing base building. Being a possessed sheep leading an evil cult has never been so much fun.
An irrefutably cool concept of "fixing the past to save the future" situated within a fascinating environment is bogged down by underwhelming writing, dated graphics, and a good deal of unnecessary, uninteresting content. For a potential-filled game about time travel, Eternal Threads is frustratingly stuck in the past.

Despite some mildly annoying logistical issues, Multiverse is a wonderfully clever puzzle platformer with a distinctive style, a quick wit, and a ton of heart.
