Harold Halibut review

Harold Halibut review

Harold Halibut is a curious fish, using its retro-futuristic, painstakingly handcrafted world and cast of weird but relatable characters to tell a heartfelt but ambling, puzzle-free story that’s (in the best way) more soap opera than space opera... Read more

A Highland Song review

A Highland Song review

A Highland Song is a beautifully frustrating journey into the Highlands, Scottish history, and the life of a troubled teenager. Showcasing both the marvels and the menace of that rugged land, it offers a powerful sense of place, memorable tales, and a big heart... Read more

Superfluous Returnz review

Superfluous Returnz review

Superfluous Returnz isn’t superfluous at all, as its not-so-super hero's bumbling (and occasionally credibility-defying) antics offer an all-too-brief breath of fresh country air... Read more

Lake: Season’s Greetings DLC review

Lake: Season’s Greetings DLC review

The Season's Greetings DLC views Lake's world through very different eyes, offering reassuring familiarity while shaking things up just enough to make them fresh again. Retaining the same slow, puzzle-free style and relatable characters, it's not for everyone but will surely feel like the perfect gift for fans of the original game... Read more

Midnight Girl review

Midnight Girl review

Midnight Girl looks and sounds like a slice of ’60s cool, drawing you into its atmospheric world and keeping you moving. Your life as a burglar doesn’t always match the glamour of the movies, but it's still a lively if all too brief escape... Read more

Rendezvous review

Rendezvous review

Rendezvous offers cyberpunk with a distinctive Indonesian flavour. Its awkward combat and simple puzzles may soon be forgotten, but its gritty story and pungent atmosphere will stay with you... Read more

Tails Noir Preludes review

Tails Noir Preludes review

Tails: The Backbone Preludes is full of living, breathing characters who, for all their fur and tails, have to make some very human choices. Beautiful and mournful, it may be light on gameplay but will draw you into its web of subtle decisions that makes for more than just one compelling playthrough... Read more

Azazel's Christmas Fable review

Azazel's Christmas Fable review

Azazel's Christmas Fable is like a slice of tasty Christmas cake: comforting if undemanding, and guaranteed to get you in a festive mood... Read more

Lord Winklebottom Investigates review

Lord Winklebottom Investigates review

Lord Winklebottom Investigates is an unapologetically eccentric love letter to cosy crime, Englishness, and tea. The mystery may be more comic than complex, but its world is a delightful spot to visit for a little while... Read more
