Review: The Little Acre

Double Fine is bringing Full Throttle back into our lives with a remaster, and I am so thankful for that. I've somehow only partially played this beloved point-and-click adventure, so I'll happily take this as my chance at redemption. The ...

Kentucky Route Zero Act IV is out right the heck now

Over three years ago, the surreal adventure game Kentucky Route Zero drifted out into the open road. Its dreamlike portrayal of rural America is something I and many others have been waiting to jump back into for quite some time. Devel...

 
 
Dark Fear Review photo

Review: Dark Fear

I am probably a horror game maker's favorite sort of person. I scare very easily when it comes to video games. Movies, not so much, but video games, man, they get me. Like, was Resident Evil 4 supposed to be super scary or is that...

Review: Kathy Rain

Every great modern detective has a vehicle that sums them up in a visual nutshell. Morse had the Jag, Columbo had that Peugeot deathtrap, Jack Irish had the Studebaker for a while, and to a lesser extent, the Scooby Gang had the Mystery Mac...

 
 
 
NightCry review photo

Review: NightCry

It seems lately we're in the Renaissance period for nostalgia and reimaginings of successful properties from the '90s. NightCry is one such game among this movement, the spiritual successor to the Clock Tower horror series which garnered ov...

Review: Day of the Tentacle Remastered

The Last Door Season 2 hits Steam Early Access

The first season of point-and-click horror game The Last Door was an utterly chilling exploration of the intersection between Catholic guilt and Lovecraftian mythology. I loved it, and if you're looking for a title to cuddle up to this...

Void and Meddler photo

Void and Meddler is a grimy cyberpunk point-and-click

Cyberpunk is often a particularly nasty genre. It's an evolution of noir, which is why you see conventions of noir regularly appear in cyberpunk stories. The morally ambiguous main character, the even more ambiguous romantic interest, ...

The Goosebumps game sure is gonna make you read a lot

Reading? In my video games? I guess that's par for the course in a click-and-point title. And, if you're really twisting my arm, it's probably a big part of reading books, too. At least Goosebumps is thematically consistent acros...

Review: Armikrog

I still have my original copy of The Neverhood, bestowed upon me when my family bought our first Gateway computer in the mid-'90s. I was in complete awe over the challengingly silly puzzles, phenomenal claymation, and the eclectic soundtrac...
