Review: Shape of the World

by Nazih Fareson June 8, 2018
An independent game made by just one person for 4 years might seem worrisome but when you learn who he is, you’ll understand. Stu Maxell is a Senior VFX Artist at The Coalition, and while working on the Gears of War license, he also focused on his own little pet project known as Shape of […]

Review: NORTH

by Nazih Fareson March 9, 2018
In the midst of big title releases, sometimes little tiny interactive experiments are a good way for me to change the routine. In this case, I’m talking about NORTH, an exploration game developed by German studio Outlands and published by Sometimes You. Definitely what is considered an experimental game, NORTH is a title with deep emotions […]

For those of you that never heard of 22cans, it is the studio founded by iconic developer Peter Molyneux, creator of Populous, Fable and the God game genre.

Review: The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

by Nazih Fareson February 3, 2018
Composed of developers from People Can Fly (creators of the crazy FPS BulletStorm),The Astronauts’ first game is very different from what they are known for. A calm adventure, without the slightest trace of fighting and at the limit of being a contemplative experience, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is one great experience now available on […]

Review: Kholat

by Nazih Fareson July 3, 2017
Want to immerse yourself in a glacial and mysterious survival game in the heart of the Urals? Well you better be ready for Kholat, a simple, beautiful, immersive, but frustrating adventure and repetitive game. Based on the 1959 Dyatlov Pass incident, it tells the story of 9 hikers that were found dead in the Kholat […]


Review: Perception

by Mazen Abdallahon June 30, 2017
Games like Amnesia and Outlast changed the definition of horror so much that now virtually every horror title is set in first-person and paced with a slower, more psychological burn. Consequently, new titles have to do more to stand out. In the case of Perception, the main concept is that your protagonist is a blind […]

Review: Syndrome

by Mazen Abdallahon October 14, 2016
At first glance, Syndrome actually has quite a bit working against it. It’s an ‘old-school’ survival horror that’s set in space. So essentially, it’s a step back in terms of survival horror, and it draws on some pretty big clichés, most notably the whole ‘something terrible happening on a spacecraft’ shtick. So the big question […]

Review: Breached

by Nazih Fareson June 28, 2016
Breached is a science fiction game in which you wake up from a long cryogenic sleep. As the main protagonist, you must also try to repair your shelter before running out of oxygen. If the concept is not fundamentally innovative, we must admit that Breached has few surprises for players accustomed to survival games in hostile environments. Indeed, […]
