It's hard to find flaws in Return of the Obra Dinn. Everything's so polished and well-planned, completely new and familiar at the same time. There's nothing even similar to this game on the market, and, when it was over, I just wanted to keep investigating more strangers' destinies for hours on end.

10 / 10.0 - Into The Breach
Aug 27, 2018

Much more than a turn-based strategy game, than a sci-fi game or than just any other indie game, Into the Breach is a masterpiece. Challenging without being unfair, complex without being overwhelming and familiar without being cliché, it's perfectly balanced to provide a unique experience.
