Irony Curtain is the funniest game of the year. It’s also a great tribute to the PC clickers of old, and a good PnC game in its own right

8 / 10.0 - We. The Revolution
Apr 1, 2019

While its scope may turn off people looking for a more focused game, you simply couldn’t ask for a better representation of the time period — even when it strays from what the books say for the sake of a consistent narrative

8 / 10.0 - Truberbrook
Mar 10, 2019

In a world now devoid of high-profile point-and-click games, Trüberbrook is more than qualified to become a cult classic some time down the road

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is not only a fantastic return of an iconic series, but a dazzling reminder that Suda51 has still got it.

9 / 10.0 - Tempest 4000
Jul 29, 2018

Tempest 4000 is the greatest version of an arcade classic and is absolutely worth your time. If you’re into old-school games, you owe it to yourself to pick it up. Even if you’re not, 4000 could surprise you. As your dad would say, ‘get some culture in ya’.

6 / 10.0 - MachiaVillain
May 24, 2018

MachiaVillain is a fun game at its core but poor UI, fun stuff being suffocated by the pillow of frantic micromanagement, and subpar presentation threaten to drag it down

6.5 / 10.0 - Without Escape
May 3, 2018

A strong sense of identity, solid scripts, and a willingness to take risks may just make this game a cult classic amongst enthusiasts. I know I won’t forget it for a while.

6 / 10.0 - Rad Rodgers
Mar 14, 2018

Kirby is back in a new platforming adventure and this time he’s bringing some friends aUp in the air, where the eagles fly, there exist excellent 2D platformers that pay tribute to older games while still retaining their own identity. Rad Rodgers came so close to soaring alongside them, but its wings melted a bit, so it has to glide for a bit and look down at the scattered bodies of Kickstarter nostalgiabait…and their own wings. Their very crappy wingslong for the trip

Civilization VI: Rise and Fall sets out to make the game’s midgame more interesting by playing to the base game’s strengths. For the most part, it succeeds. But when it flounders, it makes you yearn for the game’s second expansion

7 / 10.0 - Crossing Souls
Feb 13, 2018

Crossing Souls has charm in spades, from its perfectly emulated presentation of the Golden Age of Film to its engaging exploration. While its combat leaves a lot to be desired and its puzzles are shrug-inducing most of the time, Crossing Souls won’t walk away without some new fans

In an RPG landscape dominated by third-person political thrillers, it’s a relief to sit down and play a game that takes us back to the golden age of video games. Seven: The Days Long Gone certainly holds that charm and appeal, thanks to its wonderful aesthetic. Unfortunately, its poor design consistency and frustrating mechanics make it unrecommendable for anybody but those starved for another game in a beloved genre.

Dream Daddy comes from a nice idea, but is often hard to take seriously. It’s good fun for at least a couple of hours, but if you’re playing for the ‘novelty’ you won’t be playing much longer than that.
