Ghost on the Shore

PC
9.00
Cathlyn VaniaJun 24, 2022
Ghost on the Shore is a quiet exploration game that gets progressively more intense as the plot unravels. With a focus on storytelling, players who enjoy supernatural mystery and period drama will find this to be an intriguing journey.

Insomnis

PS4PS5
8.00
Drew OniaJun 23, 2022
Insomnis on the PlayStation 5 isn’t quite a next-generation experience but is nonetheless a thrilling haunted house adventure worth playing should you have missed out on the original release.

Last Labyrinth

PCPS4
4.00
Pascal TekaiaJun 20, 2022
The puzzles make an effort to redeem Last Labyrinth, but with its already unsatisfying narrative stretched even thinner by tedious pacing and unnecessary repetition, it’s best to avoid the trap of playing this one.

Catie in MeowmeowLand

Aurora MeyerJun 17, 2022
Although a bit repetitive and not very challenging, Catie in MeowmeowLand serves up a delightful and whimsical game experience which gives you a well-deserved escape from reality.

Magnus Failure

PC
4.00
Piero SerraJun 15, 2022
Magnus Failure has an interesting setting with a fairly decent little set of partly illogical puzzles to solve, but really not much more than that.

Freud's Bones-the game

PC
6.00
Erik ParkinJun 12, 2022
Freud’s Bones is a decent game: a unique premise brought to life by well-executed graphics, music, and interface. However, the monotonous puzzles could frustrate players.

Inked: A Tale of Love

8.00
Eran CohenJun 10, 2022
Inked: A Tale of Love is an excellent adventure game. The compelling story and the concept behind it should appeal to most adventure game fans, and especially to lovers of physics-based puzzles.

Dexter Stardust : Adventures in Outer Space

SwitchPC
9.00
Peter MattssonJun 08, 2022
Dexter Stardust is a gloriously over-the-top, Latin-themed homage to pulp sci-fi and classic adventures. The story takes a backseat to the puzzles for a while, but it has attitude and good vibes to spare.

NORCO

PC
9.00
Sean Robertson Jun 04, 2022
NORCO is a one-of-a-kind adventure, expertly written with (almost) perfect artistic direction. The lack of frequent puzzles is made up for by their unusual quality and variety. A must-play for narrative adventure fans.

Growbot

PC
7.00
Courtney EhrenhoflerJun 03, 2022
Growbot’s charming art is one of the best things about the game. All hand-drawn with a delightfully colorful, soft palette, every single scene is full of detail and care. It’s a truly beautiful world that looks like it belongs inside a children’s book more so than a video game, and makes the space station feel surprisingly organic for such a high-tech setting. Special mention also goes to the sound design. Scored by Jessica Fichot, the calming instrumental tracks that play as you wander through the space station perfectly complement the ambiance.

Perfect Tides

PC
9.00
Piero SerraMay 29, 2022
Perfect Tides is a triumph of good writing, combining raw teenage emotions with humor and simple but abundant puzzles, only slightly spoiled at times by some minor narrative vagaries.

Wanderer VR

PCPS4
7.00
Sean ParkerMay 25, 2022
While it has a few design decisions holding it back, the time-traveling joys of Wanderer promise a bright future for adventure games within the VR space.

Leprechaun Shadow

PC
6.00
Richard HooverMay 23, 2022
A touch of noir to Leprechaun Shadow breathes fresh life into Sir Typhil’s fantasy adventure series, though a long, unpolished RPG portion can be a bit hard to swallow.

Highly Likely

PC
3.00
Matt AukampMay 22, 2022
With its interesting rural Ukrainian setting, beautiful graphics and engaging Narrator, Highly Likely could have been an enjoyable interactive folk tale, if only the interaction wasn’t so painstakingly tedious and dull so as to make the entire thing feel like a frustrating waste of time.

Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit

PC
8.00
Erik ParkinMay 21, 2022
Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit is an excellent game with an engrossing story brought to life by well-executed graphics, music, interface, and voice acting.

NeonLore

PS4Switch
5.00
Drew OniaMay 18, 2022
NeonLore’s overall quality is inconsistent, and for every beautiful vista there’s an equally awkward graphical anomaly. Yet, for all it lacks, the game’s thesis does come through, and it will undoubtedly appeal to cyberpunk fans interested in exploring a frozen moment in the terrifying world of tomorrow.

The Works of Mercy

PC
2.00
Kevin LynnMay 15, 2022
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.

Catsperience

PC
6.00
Richard HooverMay 13, 2022
With clumsy controls and a focus on codes and combinations, Catsperience leaves little room for life as a feline.

Half Past Fate

PCSwitch
9.00
Cathlyn VaniaMay 12, 2022
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 Shattering

PC
8.00
Aurora MeyerMay 10, 2022
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

iOSPS4PS5SwitchXbox OneXbox Series X|S
4.00
Pascal TekaiaMay 07, 2022
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

PCPS5Xbox Series X|S
6.00
Drew OniaMay 06, 2022
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.

Poltergeist Treasure

PC
4.00
Richard HooverMay 03, 2022
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.

Unicorn Dungeon

PC
5.00
Richard HooverApr 29, 2022
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.

Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space

PCSwitchXbox One
9.00
Richard HooverApr 28, 2022
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.
