MADievals: The Rise of Rusty Steelknee review review teaser image

With its lack of relevant story progression until a rushed finale, MADievals won’t make a lasting impression, but its eccentric characters, plethora of anachronisms, and straight-up weirdness keep this fantasy medieval romp entertaining in the moment... Read more

Slay the Princess review

Slay the Princess review – Subversive, brilliantly executed visual novel continually surprises with impactful player choice review teaser image

While Slay the Princess comes in a deceptively simple package, it contains what feels like a whole universe of horror, humor and humanity; it takes the visual novel format and pushes it as far as it will go, with a story that changes and adapts to every decision you make without ever forsaking its central themes of identity, eternity, and the nature of life and death...
