Metamorphosis: Demo Review

I remember taking a world literature class in high school many years ago, and one of the most intriguing stories was Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, where a young man named Gregor Samsa wakes up one morning to find he has changed into a bug.  There is no explanation for why this has happened, and the…

Shady Part of Me: A Girl and Her Shadow Unite

Shady Part of Me is a unique puzzle-platformer where a girl and her shadow work together to solve puzzles and progress through a watercolor landscape. The two main characters are opposites. The girl is afraid of light and must hide in the shadows, while her shadow must remain in the light and uses shadows as…

Subnautica: A “Broken” Masterpiece

Always on the lookout for good sales on digital games, easily the best deal I ever got was when I downloaded Subnautica for free, thanks to PlayStation’s whole “Play at Home” program.  Having already seen Youtuber 8-BitRyan play the game online, I never really intended on playing Subnautica for myself, as awesome as it looked. …

Goofing Off in Subnautica is Far Too Addicting

Subnautica is one of many games that I have heard good things about, but seeing as I had already watched a playthrough online, I saw no reason to play it for myself.  That all changed when I was perusing the PlayStation Store, only to notice that Subnautica was available for…free?  Was I seeing this right? …

Limbo: Does It Live Up to Its Successor?

In the past, I reviewed an amazing indie horror game called Inside.  Before this game blessed us with its eerie presence, Playdead released another game you may have heard of by the name of Limbo.  Limbo seemed to be a big deal at the time, though after watching a brief playthrough of the first chunk…

Earthlock: Demo Review

As I peruse the demos currently available on the PlayStation Store, I am bombarded with a staggering number of similar looking RPGs.  Typically a genre that consumes a whole lot of one’s time, RPGs are kind of a big commitment, and so it makes sense to check out the demo first in order to decide…

The Mooseman: Beautiful, Eerie, Yet Unsatisfying

Ever since I have begun buying digital games, I have found no shortage of interesting, artsy looking options.  Beautiful they may be, but more often than not, these games prove why you shouldn’t judge something based on looks alone.  The most recent example of this is The Mooseman, an extremely intriguing looking game that is…

Spelunky: Demo Review

Spelunky falls into a broad category of games that I have heard good things about, but have never actually played.  Thanks to the trial version that I downloaded on the PS4, I finally had a chance to experience this game for myself.  Though my initial impression was fairly neutral, I quickly grew to appreciate Spelunky…

Cat Quest: Demo Review

G’day, folks, in recent times, I have taken to downloading free demos as a means to experience a greater variety of games without having to pay for something I may not end up liking.  (Y’know, the very reason demos exist.)  Being someone who adores animals, especially those of the feline variety, it was no wonder…

Cheeky Charlatans: Sans

By now, I doubt anyone hasn’t heard of the incredibly popular indie game Undertale.  One of the most notable aspects of the game is the ability to complete it without killing a single enemy.  While you also have the option to do the complete opposite (AKA the Genocide Route), I don’t think I’d ever have…
