    Review: The Sinking City (PC)

    That sinking feeling.

    Frogware's The Sinking City is perhaps the best love letter to Lovecraft that we have seen in quite some time, but that may not be saying much. This most direct competition to The Sinking City was 2018's Call of Cthulhu, which really failed to capitalize on any single gameplay aspect. The Sinking City, on the other hand, at least manages to excel in one or two key areas, even if it barely stays afloat in others.

    The city of Oakmont is the main location for The Sinking City. The first thing you see upon arrival is dreariness. Well, that and a dead...

    2064: Read Only Memories Sequel Announced

    A new, mysterious case needs to be cracked.

    MidBoss is the studio responsible for bringing the world a little mystery adventure title called 2064: Read Only Memories. This original title came out back in 2017 and has earned some overall "Strong" review scores from a number of outlets, even sitting at a "very positive" user score after hundreds of Steam reviews.

    The game blended together elements of mystery, crime solving, adventure, and a hefty splash of cyberpunk. This past week, a sequel was announced for 2064. It's called Read Only Memories: N...

    Review: Call of Cthulhu (PC)

    Choices matter?
    Call of Cthulhu places you in the shoes of Edward Pierce, a private investigator that falls firmly in the overused trope of being one drink away from full blown alcoholism. Pierce is a man with a mysterious past and, apparently, a pre-destined future. A future that finds him headed towards Darkwater Island in an attempt to get some concrete answers as to what really happened to the Hawkins family. Was it a simple accident that consumed the lives of a mother, father, and their child, or was it something far more sinister? Darkwater is as much of a character in Call of Cthulhu as Pierce or the other island inhabitants. It's as inviting to outsiders as a slap across the face, but serves as the perfect setting for a story that involves the eldritch monster Cthulhu. Darkwater seems almost lost in time, shrouded in what seems like a perpetual green gloom and mist th...

    Review: The Station (PC)


    Space walk with me.

    From start to its somewhat expected finish, The Station had its hooks in me something fierce. Let it be known right now that I love a great story driven experience and The Station delivered in spades. Though a bit shorter than I would have liked, I was fully immersed for every single second of it. Let's not beat around the bush here: The Station is what some may call a "walking simulator" or even a "story-driven experience." Whatever you call it, I call it a fun and thoroughly enjoyable time. The story is delivered through a series of relatively short audio logs, floating holographic messages, and optional documents that all come together to build this world and story. All I will say about the plot is what you can pick up from the trailers and screenshots for the game. You are sent to a damaged space stat...

    Hands On Gameplay Preview of Past Cure

    Back in January, I was offered the opportunity to try out an early build of the upcoming psychological thriller meets third-person action title, Past Cure. The build of the game I played was just two levels from the full game. At the time of the preview, the game was still very much in development at Phantom 8 Studio. Typically, when you play a game you notice that they tend to mesh all of their gameplay elements into a singular focus for the entirety of the experience. There usually isn't a very clear-cut change in tone and gameplay focus between two levels. That doesn't seem to be the case with Past Cure. Instead, there will be levels where the playable character Ian, relies on stealth, avoidance, and capacity to solve some fairly easy puzzles. All of these happen in a dark, creepy dream-world filled with visions and nightmares that don't ...

    Final Episode of Bear With me Out Today

    The third and final episode for Bear With Me is out today on the PC. This "noire point-and-click adventure" attempts to wrap up the mystery that involves a 10 year old girl, her imaginary friends, and her missing brother.
    Mischief is afoot in the hand-drawn, monochromatic metropolis of Paper City, and only Amber and her grizzled stuffed toy companion, Ted E. Bear, can crack the case. Together the duo interview toys brought to life by the power of her imagination, search for clues and solve puzzles. The wisecracking residents of Paper City spout witty one-liners and pop culture puns. At the close of Episode 2 the series' heroine, Amber, was

  • Review: Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy (Mobile/3DS)

    Riddle me this.
    The last Professor Layton game I played was, I believe, the very first one to ever come out for the Nintendo DS. It was Professor Layton and the Curious Village and it came out back in 2007. I may have played or owned Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box but I honestly cannot remember for sure. This is all really beside the point. What I can say with certainty here is that Professor Layton and the Curious Village seemed to offer a splendid blend of new ideas, lovable characters, absurd situations, and plenty of brain teasers and traditional puzzles to dive into. I loved it. At the time there really wasn't much like it and really, outside of the other entries in the Layton franchise, there still really aren't too many games like it.

    Fast-forward about ten years and Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy has just...
