Night Call Review

There really should be more games like Night Call out there. It tries something unique and succeeds at it, delivering compelling short stories through a limited yet meaningful interaction and wrapped up in a classy aesthetic. The game shows humanism and wisdom that the billion-dollar titles can only dream of.

The Shapeshifting Detective Review

In the end, The Shapeshifting Detective will give you a solid mystery to solve with some unique story mechanics behind it. As a bonus, the game also has some great replayability as well, and it can be entertaining to see how one playthrough changes from the next.

The Council - Episode 2: Hide and Seek Review

While Episode 2 may very well be a tad shorter than the previous, it still managed to give me more of the skill-based gameplay and intriguing story that Episode 1 started, which is very much a good thing. I will add that like most story-based games, Hide and Seek is a "convergence point" in the story as I played two different characters through to the end (which is fine, as you can't have too many diverging choices over five episodes after all).

The Raven Remastered Review

If you're anything like me, it's hard to say no to a good old-fashioned mystery, so there's a good chance that The Raven: Remastered (based on the 2013 game The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief) may have caught your eye. And for good reason!

Alaska Review

From top to bottom, Alaska fails to inspire any sense of wonder, mystery, or excitement. That last one might sound strange - how can life in the Alaskan wilderness be “fun?” It kind of isn't and instead of trying to find your own fun out of the mundane, the developers at Wreck Tangle Games trap you inside a fiercely linear story punctuated by the most oddly designed mini-games I have ever experienced.

8-bit Adventures Anthology: Volume One Review

8-bit Adventures Anthology: Volume One shows how little is needed to create immersing experiences. Do yourself a favor and relax with crude pixels with cool stories.
