Review: Floor Kids

There’s nothing else out there quite like this game. Floor Kids attempts to meld the free-flowing body squirming of breakdancing with the much-loved rhythm genre, succeeding surprisingly well. It’s a project created by an artist...

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...
