Review: Journey for Elysium (PC VR)

A short trip to the afterlife.

For the past several months now, we have offered up glimpses of the story-driven VR adventure title Journey for Elysium. We saw a game that had a unique visual style, the promise of a story that would take us all to an afterlife, a world filled with architecture inspired by Greek mythology, and mind-bending puzzles to solve.

    Candy Crush Developer Going After The Banner Saga Over the Word 'Saga'

    King, the development studio behind Candy Crush Saga didn't feel as though they already won the "Biggest Jackass Developer" award yet by their move to trademark the word "candy." No, instead they now also going after games that have the word "saga" in their name.
