Review: Pinstripe

Some things are worth fighting for. Some things are worth walking through hell for. And whatever you hold dear is all the more precious when you've lost everything else. Ted has lost everything else. His wife is gone. He's a "disgraced mini...

Co-op platformer Super Chariot coming to Switch

Review: Mom Hid My Game!

She hides the game because she loves you. She wants you to grow up to become a lawyer or doctor, certainly not someone who plays video games. Mom Hid My Game! isn't simply a game, it's a life lesson we should all take into consideration whi...

Review: Embers of Mirrim

Embers of Mirrim is all about a griffin-like creature that can split into two halves, light and dark. It's a fitting metaphor for the gameplay found within: though it has one central mechanic, it explores that idea in a lot of different way...

Review: Bridge Constructor Portal

Bridge Constructor Portal is a mashup I didn't know I wanted. Whether it's a sign of more to come or merely an out-of-the-blue one-off, I'm surprised this game exists -- and also how much I like it. It borrows the ingenious puzzle mechanics...

Review: Gorogoa

I didn’t hear about Gorogoa until I read an article about its creator, Jason Roberts, and his seven-year journey developing this game. It intrigued me, as did the art in the screenshots, and I felt I owed it to him in some way to play...

Rime has some issues on the Nintendo Switch

This game was originally released for other platforms back in May of this year. After finally getting my hands on the Nintendo Switch version, almost six months later, I think it’s fairly safe to say that the delay was a good call. Ev...

Review: Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together! DLC

I couldn't recommend Snipperclips enough when it launched alongside the Nintendo Switch and, to this day, it's still one of my favorite games for the system. It's creative, lighthearted, approachable, and gives you just enough room to be a ...
