Subsurface Circular Review

Many novels, films, and other media have explored the themes of the emotions, motivations and rights of sentient robots in humanity's near future. These elements drive the story machinery of Subsurface Circular, a text adventure/mystery that just barely qualifies as a game. Although it has stellar production values within its limited scope, the heart of Subsurface Circular is not combat or gameplay, but narrative.

Code 7 Review

Before adventure games got graphics, everything that was presented in them was written. They were also played by typing in words to communicate with the game world. How would this kind of text adventure work in these days, with games pushing the boundaries of photorealistic graphics for ever more authentic immersion? Pretty damn well, as cyber thriller Code 7 proves.

80 Days

80 Days is a simple game about globe trotting. But in those travels are a number fantastic smaller narratives that make what could be a dull and straightforward journey incredibly engaging. More so than that is the game’s ability to make picking route both terrifying and rewarding. But most of all is the shear personality and replayability of 80 Days. I’ve circumnavigated the Earth fives times and every single trip has been different. Well written, fun, easy to pickup and difficult to put down, 80 Days is not only one of the best mobile games around, it's one of the best video games, mobile or not, to come out in 2014 so far.
