Essence

Essence is a Beautiful Walking Simulator

When it comes to adventure games, whether they be of the traditional point-and-click variety or more of a "walking simulator," one of the things that always has to grab me is the atmosphere. It's not required, just as good graphics or even any graphics at all ...

Why is the Ghost Theory Kickstarter Failing?

When I first wrote about Ghost Theory about three weeks ago, I was amazed at how unique and charming the game looked. Most first person horror games these days are still cashing in on Slenderman and Amnesia, with the occasional Five Nights at Freddy’s rip-off....

Project Phoenix Could Still Rise From The Ashes

Ira

Hands-On With Ira, A Surprising Sci-Fi Adventure

What an odd little thing Ira’s demo turned out to be. It didn’t start that way, putting you in the role of a hobo on a train in 1932. Everything seemed normal, at least in the way we think of normal in relation to videogames, when I was talking to this banjo p...
