Unrest Review

A lot of games today, especially RPGs, present you with a series of moral choices that will have an effect on the outcome of the story. To me, this is one of the more interesting recent mechanics in games, so when I heard that Pyrodactyl’s Unrest was a game that was made up entirely of

Divinity: Original Sin Review

GRID Autosport Review

Ether One Review

Remember when the stories in video games almost universally sucked? We used to have to suffer through stories that barely deviated from templates such as “amnesiac chosen one saves the world”, “unlikely hero saves princess”, or “bold knight slays evil monster”. Sometimes they’d rock our socks off and change it up by combining them! Yeah,

A Story About My Uncle Review

You could probably load up Steam right now and find several games with simple gameplay mechanics that are short, narrative driven
