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 ...

Get ready to pop, there's a HuniePop sequel in the works

HuniePop works for a number of reasons, but also doesn't work for its intended one. It's fun as a Bejeweled-light that rewards progress, and it's also kind of a party game my roommate and I had a lot of fun laughing at. If you played the f...

Pikuniku might be your next friendship-ruining co-op game

Pikuniku was such a fitting game to play first at PAX West. It encapsulates the show perfectly. It was situated all the way in the back of the Indie Megabooth, an area of the show floor that has gotten increasingly (and deservedly) more cro...

Review: Last Day of June

Have you ever been in love? If so, you would be hard pressed to have a love as true and as nauseating as that of Carl and June. You can tell how crazy they are about each other from a single glance and that's saying something considering th...
