Crimson Room: Decade Review

Crimson Room: Decade will not be on anyone’s favorite puzzle games list. It’s aggravatingly unfair and lacks any imagination for a game that proudly proclaims ten years of experience. The unnecessarily complicated storyline is delivered so fast and then is completely forgotten when some discovery could’ve made it another mystery to solve. The actual puzzles are so asinine, that you’ll usually think there’s something more … Continue reading Crimson Room: Decade Review

Goetia Video Review

Goetia is one of those games that seems like it’s going to be good but then wows you with how exceptional it is. From the masterful storytelling, nerve-rattling audio and jaw-dropping visuals, this game deserves recognition for its near flawless composition. The story of a young woman’s spirit digging through a gigantic tomb in search of her family’s downfall is so poignant and engaging that … Continue reading Goetia Video Review

NightCry Video Review

I’m a huge fan of the classic Clock Tower series- and so because of that, I’m sure I’m a little partial. If you’re a fan too, you might get a kick out of this new game by Hifumi Kono. It’s a little pricey, but the Italian/Japanese horror inspirations and subtextual motifs make for a fantastic experience. If you’re not familiar with the Clock Tower franchise, … Continue reading NightCry Video Review

Deponia Doomsday Video Review

I love Daedalic Entertainment. They’re single-handedly showing that Point and Click Adventures are still a viable source for thoughtful and engaging entertainment. While Deponia Doomsday isn’t my favorite of the series, it’s still worth journeying through once again. The story isn’t as focused as it could’ve been and spends most of its time justifying the trilogy’s ending in some moments that feel more like lecturing … Continue reading Deponia Doomsday Video Review

Heaven’s Hope Review

 Heaven’s Hope is a mediocre game at best.  It really doesn’t have a ton to offer veteran players, and the challenge is almost non-existent. Worst of all, the game feels like one of those Christian pamphlets you get on your car window.  Given the subject matter, it is refreshing that the game condemns zealotry while promoting rationalism.  I enjoyed the spiritual and moral aspects of … Continue reading Heaven’s Hope Review

Alpha Polaris: A Horror Adventure Game Review

While it lacks the finesse needed in the genre, Alpha Polaris nails several key areas.  They took one of nature’s most beautiful anomalies and added a dark presence to it.  You’ll truly feel the isolation of living out in the tundra.  Unfortunately, the developers seem like they tackled a larger project than they could handle, and the game focuses itself in all of the wrong … Continue reading Alpha Polaris: A Horror Adventure Game Review

Anna’s Quest Review

Anna’s Quest may appear to be made for children, but this game is a dark journey through the end of a childhood.  The game evokes a helpless sense of loneliness, but uplifts with the optimism that only a child could bring in the bleakest of situations.  On your crusade to save your father from a curse, you’ll meet talking animals, manipulating witches and save people … Continue reading Anna’s Quest Review
