Review: Little Nightmares

It's been while since a game has ensnared me like this. Where lesser games struggle for my attention as I routinely check the clock and put on podcasts, Little Nightmares hypnotized me with ever-present suspense. Your main goal in this puzz...   read

Review: The Sexy Brutale

In just under five minutes with The Sexy Brutale, I watched a man die. He was gunned down; left slumped and lifeless next to a stone altar, all before the murder weapon's echo faded. There was nothing I could do except watch the grisly scen...   read

Spooky Adventures in Babysitting with 2Dark

Two things I'm very weary of in life: kids and developers mostly remembered for big hits from 25+ years ago. Look, if you've ever played Amy, you'll understand where I'm coming from. Even so, someone thought I was the ideal person to play 2...   read

Human: Fall Flat hilariously bumbles its way onto PS4 and Xbox One

Human: Fall Flat is one of those games that has an incredibly on-the-nose title. It's a ragdoll puzzler, the kind of thing where your "human" will fall flat over and over again. Chances are that it's only through partial fault of your...   read

Rime will seem very familiar to anyone who's ever played an indie puzzler before

Rime takes place in a quiet, mysterious world (that just might have a hint of danger!), contains no spoken dialogue, stars a young boy and his mystical animal companion, and has an ambiguous story that will be left up to interpret...   read

Death Squared will test your puzzle solving skills, and your relationships

The lobby of the San Francisco Hilton was congested as 9 to 5ers met over cocktails, conversed, laughed, and routinely checked their smartphones looking for a better time than the one they were currently having. Well off my normal path, I s...   read

Review: Picross 3D Round 2

Review: Obduction

Myst was such a formative experience in the '90s -- a harbinger of a new plane of thinking in storytelling, pushing the boundaries of technical advancement and narrative-driven gaming. It defined a genre and set the stage for adventure pu...   read

Review: Human: Fall Flat

Review: Tumblestone

I can't think of the last puzzle game that had a color/shape-matching mechanic that I've genuinely enjoyed. It might be none of them, actually. I just never felt satisfied after completing a puzzle. I'm more of a candy eater than a candy cr...   read

Review: Dungeons 2

Dungeons 2 is a heart-breaker. It has a lot of charm, some ambitious ideas, and a genuinely fun dungeon builder buried somewhere deep inside it. If it focused on its strengths, I could see it being a great, laid back entry in the dungeon-bu...   read
