The Game Crater's Reviews
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.
Eastward is the epitome of a role-playing game that pays homage to retro classics. Not only does it boast gorgeously drawn pixel art and an addicting soundtrack, but it also features a thought-provoking narrative and a world that will have you thinking about it long after you've finished the game.
Despite being only developed by a handful of people, Edge of Eternity is by far one of the greatest JRPGs ever made. Its stunning visuals, incredible soundtrack, complex narrative and intricate combat make it an incredibly ambitious title that fulfils each and every promise it makes.
Shot in the Dark is a simple yet elegant game with some of the most engaging gameplay I have ever experienced. With the 3 colour 8-bit aesthetic and memorable music, the game had me enraptured from start to finish. I can't wait to see what Possum House Games does next.
Say No! More is an absolute riot to play. While some of the humour doesn't always land, I constantly caught myself grinning with glee as I played. This is absolutely a game worth saying yes to, if only to delight in its wonderful sense of humour and surprisingly introspective narrative.
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.
It Takes Two is the pinnacle of co-op gaming, featuring stunning interactive environments, unpredictable levels and a whole lot of video game references. It offers a strong narrative, even though it sometimes feels like it drags on a bit too long. Nonetheless, It Takes Two feels original and has set the benchmark for two-player games.
Half-Life: Alyx has its flaws, though these are hard to focus on when no other game offers an experience such as this. For now, Half-Life: Alyx is an absolute must-play title for both Half-Life fans and VR enthusiasts or anyone that has an opportunity to play it.
The Demon’s Souls Remake is the most technically impressive Souls game to date. It is superior to the original, but at its core, it is the same game. The game offers the same core gameplay-loop you know and love, set in a fantastic world and atmosphere.
Chicory: A Colorful Tale is a stunning game that should be on everyone's list of games to play. It features plenty of creative gameplay mechanics, which proved to be engaging with very minimal faults. The storyline is also incredibly charming, and you'll likely struggle to find a more wholesome game than Chicory.
