    The Works of Mercy is an initially promising thriller about the morality of our choices that promptly dies thrashing and gurgling. Post-mortem reveals the cause of death to be flimsy writing and bare-bones gameplay.

    With clumsy controls and a focus on codes and combinations, Catsperience leaves little room for life as a feline.

    Half Past Fate is a bundle of joy not only for fans of rom-coms, but for those who enjoy character-driven adventures and are looking to immerse themselves in a slow-paced, feel-good collection of human stories.

    The lack of puzzles and other challenges lets the gaming experience fall short, but the beautiful graphics, gripping story and wonderful music still make The Shattering a worthwhile experience, even if it’s an emotionally difficult one.

    Bloodshore delivers what it advertises: as a true interactive movie, it provides some decent schlock here and there, but ultimately its narrative and characters come up lacking.

    Lost At Sea takes on a bold concept, and does a serviceable job of telling its story through well-designed puzzles. That said, many other parts of the game feel underdeveloped, and while still a memorable experience, a bit more expansion could have made it unforgettable.

    The presence of a few decent adventure environments and puzzles can’t save the weak stealth game that is Sir Typhil’s second medieval fantasy outing, Poltergeist Treasure.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Critic Score
    Sir Typhil’s short introduction in Unicorn Dungeon would have been far sweeter without the tacked-on dungeon crawling that detracts from what’s otherwise a solid if unspectacular fantasy adventure debut.

    With classic zaniness and puzzle solving and updated production values, Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space marries the best of the old with the new in this modern remaster.

    The Plane Effect is a well-crafted surreal and atmospheric experience with philosophical undertones. While not perfect (though not too far from it), it is heartily recommended.

    A good game with beautiful graphics, well animated characters that puts a unique spin on a mysterious American legend. A humorous story that’s occasionally slowed down by its minigames.

    The unique and beautifully designed Haimrik is a fast-paced, text-driven action-puzzler with a fair amount of challenge throughout its fantastical and frequently brutal journey.

    Siblings aren’t the only thing missing in Lost Brothers, as this buggy trip through a hidden cave is bereft of either acceptable storytelling or anything to do.

    Although quite short and the RPG and adventure elements don’t mesh particularly well, Phoenix Tales is a solid game with a light but fun story, brought to life by a charming presentation.

    Waiting for a minute to pass has never been such whimsical fun as in the gorgeously serene Until 9:15 a.m..

    Keyword: A Spider’s Thread is an ambitious light hacking game that is rough around the edges and highly implausible, but should still provide several hours of entertainment for fans of the genre.

    Like a David Lynch-inspired fever dream, Who’s Lila? refuses to be fit into a box, its bold graphics, creepy story, and peculiar facial expression mechanic making it one of the most unusual adventure games in recent history.

    It’s a simple game that everyone should be able to relate to, but some of the design choices and a number of production limitations make playing Alexey’s Winter feel too much like trudging through a cold winter blizzard yourself.

    The side-scrolling SAMUDRA has an admirably strong environmental message and some lovely deep-sea art, but that’s not enough to overcome the unimaginative gameplay and vague storytelling.

    Despite some shaky puzzle mechanics, Hermitage: Strange Case Files is a compelling Lovecraftian visual novel horror anthology that’s well worth your time if you have even a passing interest in creepy creatures or cosmic terrors.

    Pants Quest is a cute and cozy micro-adventure about dealing with stressors and being an adult. The comedy doesn’t always land, but otherwise the hour or so it will take you to get your pants on is highly enjoyable.

    The acting is good and the central mystery is intriguing enough to want to see it through, but Who Pressed Mute on Uncle Marcus? isn’t able to rise above its repetitive nature and lack of any real gameplay to maintain interest all the way to the final unveiling.

    Syberia: The World Before is a wonderful return to form for Benoît Sokal’s venerable series. Beautiful, engaging, and moving, it’s the strongest chapter in Kate Walker’s journey yet.

    Letters – a written adventure is a delightful word manipulation game, chronicling one young woman’s life and how language can change it. While it isn’t always as engrossing as it could be, it has charm in spades and should—at least the first time around—engage those interested in story-driven experiences.

    With its surreal atmosphere and a deliberately ambiguous story that leaves many questions unanswered, Magnus Imago may reward those willing to delve deeper with plenty to think about, but it doesn’t provide much challenge or narrative resolution as a reward for your efforts.

    Feeling more like an expansion than a complete game, Nelson and the Magic Cauldron: The Journey refines the series’ technical aspects and continues the comically absurd adventures of its eponymous hero for those already initiated to his world.

    SCARF is a lovely 3D puzzle-platformer with a pleasing blend of genre elements, though the further you get, the more it starts to fray at the seams.

    It may be a little dense and awkward on occasion, but Warp Frontier boldly flies into some deep, dark places, mostly managing to balance challenging puzzles with personal choices and big ideas.

    The storytelling is a little vague and lacks emotional punch, but if you’re looking for some innovative mechanics and visual artistry, Moncage’s perspective-based puzzles set in colorful cube vignettes are a marvel to experience.

    Side-scrolling through a suburban household as a tiny robot in Time Loader provides an immensely satisfying environmental puzzle-platforming experience that more than makes up for the weak endings.
