“Approaching crush depth, please return to the surface ASAP” I hear my pda tell me. Despite its rather pertinent warning (Dying by being crushed is NOT a fate I am particuarly fond of), I am so close to my objective I have no intention of doing so. To prevent the destruction of my seamoth (a mini-submersible), I exit the submarine and immediately begin surveying the area. From the events of…

Hello fair readers!  Sometimes life gives me an awesome gift.  Then, life kicks me in the face with shoes covered in the cold virus and runs away cackling.  Life is kind of a jerk.  However, thanks to said illness, I played an obscene amount of my favorite game, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, and its newest expansion, Afterbirth. If you’ve played the first game, you know just how fun and…

Giana Sisters: Dream Runners Review

November 18, 2015

3…2…1! The race begins! I frantically try to find the controls, searching for the way to move forward while the others leave me in the dust. I find the controls to be awkward for me at first, having the movement keys be arrow keys instead of WASD. They (meaning easy AI players, as I could not find any real people online) left me so far behind that I died from…

When I think of SOMA after playing I am constantly reminded why Fractional Games is so well known for their talent of making amazing horror games.

Perception is reality in this first person puzzler developed by Pillow Castle Games. Museum of Simulation Technology, which is currently the working title of the game, is inspired by “forced perspective”, a camera trick, which makes things appear smaller or larger, depending on where the viewer is standing.
