    Despite the minor issues I have with the game’s iOS version, Hindsight is an essential if you enjoy emotional narratives. I love how it constantly has you interacting even with simple swipes as you experience great narration, music, and a memorable story. If you enjoy short stories, Hindsight is absolutely worth your time and one of my favorite stories in gaming this year. This is also my favorite game from Joel McDonald now, above Prune.

    This introspective puzzle game occasionally disrupts its own flow but is otherwise a pretty special experience.

    Hindsight is a bittersweet narrative journey featuring gorgeous 3D scenes and fantastic voice acting. The gameplay feels a little lacking and the story hammers on the same point repetitively after a while, but it certainly packs an emotional punch in the end.

    While it shares some of its playful approach to perspective with Gorogoa, this is no puzzle game and involves no player choice, but it does have a pleasing emotional resonance, even if the relentless melancholy eventually makes you want to go back to Poinpy.
