Review: Return of the Obra Dinn on Switch

Categories: Reviews, Switch

Lucas Pope made a name for himself with 2013’s Papers, Please; a dour dystopic experience where you play as an immigration officer charged with checking those who cross the border to an authoritarian nation. Pope’s previous work was concerned with putting faces and names to the masses that cross the…

Time travel is a well-worn concept in the realm of Japanese role-playing games, from the aeon spanning Chrono Trigger to the many branches of Radiant Historia.

Review: Risk of Rain 2

Categories: Reviews, Switch

Arguably the best part of roguelikes is when you’ve finally collected enough loot to achieve god-like status, obliterating everything in your path like a hurricane without even trying. The first Risk of Rain, a sci-fi roguelike defined by potent power-ups and an ever-escalating difficulty, was particularly great at evoking that…

In a world of sequels and spinoffs and inspired bys, it’s always a treat playing something that captures a one-of-a-kind feel. As far as concepts go, Untitled Goose Game does just that, and does so with pride. You take on the role of a goose, just a goose, out and…
