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.

9.5 / 10.0 - The Outer Worlds
Feb 13, 2020

The Outer Worlds is one of the most ambitious indie projects ever, but somehow it feels very humane. Be it for its lovely characters, its surprisingly consistent universe or its tiny time-saving options, it's possible to see, at all times, the humanity behind this game. Because of that, it's an experience I recommend with all my heart.

Lonely Mountains: Downhill is, most likely, the best BMX game released in the last few years. The attention to details is commendable and, despite some flaws, the gorgeous atmosphere and fun gameplay stand out.

Morphies Law Remorphed had the potential to be a captivating online shooter, but it fails in gameplay quality and variety. Despite some noticeable improvements from the original game, it's hard to avoid the feeling that its great concept was wasted. Without a robust foundation, it doesn't matter how solid the walls and ceiling are — it all comes crashing down anyway.

7 / 10.0 - Neo Cab
Oct 16, 2019

Neo Cab asks a lot of interesting questions about precariousness, automation, social control through technology, data usage, and especially how to hold on to your humanity in a monopoly under unregulated capitalism. The execution of the game is questionable, but it can be worth it to give it a look for fans of narrative-focused experiences.

Untitled Goose Game is neither deep nor thought-provoking. But it's so, so, so fun, and that's enough for what it wants to be. House House proves, once again, that they can transform any unusual idea into a one-of-a-kind experience, funny from beginning to end.

Creature in the Well is not memorable, but potentially really fun in parts. If you can ignore the repetition and monotony in some levels and let yourself dive into the game's captivating and beautifully-crafted atmosphere, it's possible to enjoy the experience.

9.5 / 10.0 - Children of Morta
Sep 17, 2019

When I began playing, I was not expecting anything different from other games of the genre. As the story progressed, however, both the gameplay and the smooth style of the game surprised me, ultimately leaving me considering it one of the best experiences released in the last few years.

Headliner: NoviNews has some good intentions and can be very good during some sections of gameplay, but an oversimplified political system and lacklustre art and sound directions prevent the game from fulfilling its full potential. Having said that, it can still be a good entry point for people who want to get into the world of politics in a more meaningful way.
