Shadwen has got promise, but is it launching too soon?

Frozenbyte really doesn’t waste any time, does it? Less than a year after Trine 3 was released, the developer is back with timey-wimey stealth game Shadwen. Unfortunately, while it shows promise, maybe Frozenbyte is a bit too eager t...   read

Review: Hitman: Sapienza

Hitman's first episode was a measured, strong proof of concept: that Hitman works best in large sandboxes with interstitial systems, rather than trying to string what are effectively set-pieces into a linear narrative. The job (professional...   read

I want to vacay in Hitman's Sapienza

Despite my confident, casual unholstering of the word "vacay," I've never actually taken a vacation, on account of all the poverty. Still, feels good to dream, and Hitman's take on Italy looks downright idyllic. I mean, not the weird bit wi...   read

Trine developer's new game, Shadwen, sneaks onto PC and PS4 in May
