Review: Wattam

Outer Wilds is a world I'm dying to explore

Review: Donut County

Holes get a bad rap. Their existence signifies an absence; the appearance of a hole means something can never be whole. Losing a loved one leaves a hole in our heart. Perceived gaps in storytelling are called "plot holes". Places that peopl...
