    Iris and the Giant is unassuming, but quietly brilliant. A positively beautiful turn- and card- based roguelike that won’t gobble up hundreds of hours of your life.

    I really never thought I would ever be someone who played deckbuilding games. I never managed to get into Slay The Spire or Darkest Dungeon, and figured it wasn’t a genre I’d ever get to grips with. And then I stumbled on Meteorfall. It was love at first sight. It clicked. I got it. I got really good at it! I played it until I was on game+++ modes for every character, in a way I never play games! I’m having very similar feelings about Iris And The Giant.

    Truly intriguing. So far it’s the best new tactical card game this year. And a true feast for eyes and ears. [05/2020, p.68]

The story was cute, albeit kinda hamfisted and not as well written as I'd have liked, but overall I felt like they at least did a good job of weaving the themes of the story into the gameplay itself, which is always really cool to see.

    If you can get past the gratingly bad voice work and writing, a jaggedly unpolished game awaits you.

    then again, it wouldn't make sense if a game about depression was fun to play
