Review: Fugue in Void

Fugue in Void by Moshe Link is a Brutalism-themed exploration game, and a journey through a world that is probably not the one that usually surrounds us, but a world that we surround ourselves. The developer describes it as the “perfect break from all those action packed games out there“, supposedly targeting those who prefer […]

Review: Lake Ridden

Lake Ridden by Midnight Hub is an exploration puzzle game with a light story. It starts out a little underwhelming as mostly a relaxing walk through the woods, but that will soon change and you’ll realize how amazingly put together the environments are: the attention to detail is great and everything looks fantastic — the […]

I really liked […]

The puzzles are about exploring and getting past difficult terrain, which is done by using different types of placable cubes (some act like simple stepping stones, some as vehicles, and some in other ways).

Review: The House of Da Vinci

The House of Da Vinci by Blue Brain Games is a 3D puzzle game based around the contraptions imagined by Leonardo da Vinci¹. Not all of these contraptions were realized, but now you get to see and experience some of them in-game plus a lot of other clever mechanisms, hidden passages, and so on. It’s […]

Review: XING: The Land Beyond

XING: The Land Beyond by White Lotus Interactive is a 3D puzzle game with a good variety of things to figure out and places to explore. Exploration wasn’t a main theme, but there were some rewards to be found here and there. I had a good few hours of great fun (14 according to Steam). […]
