Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden Review

Played on Windows.
Also available on PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Mutant Year Zero is a tactical strategy game mixed with an adventure game producing an interesting combination. Quite a few compare it directly to XCOM for its tactical and turn-based gameplay and that makes sense.

Northgard Review

Played on Windows
Also available on macOS and Linux

Northgard’s story starts pretty simply, it’s a revenge story, where your family has been slaughtered, and you’re out to make those who did pay. Simple, but efficient setting off a great course of events. The odd thing is this isn’t a typical action or adventure game, instead what we have here is a throwback to the old days of the RTS. But is it any good?

When Ski Lifts Go Wrong Review

Played on Windows.
Also Available on macOS and Switch.

It’s time to return to the indie roots. I found When Ski Lifts Go Wrong based on some gifs the creator had posted on Reddit. It had a compelling development story about a guy, his brother, and his friend making the game. I’m not one to consider team sizes. What did impress was the look and gameplay he was showing off was impressive, and I wanted to see if it lived up to the gifs.

Q.U.B.E. 2 Review

Played on Windows
Also Available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch

In 2011, Q.U.B.E. first came out. It was a unique physics-based puzzler. While it had a similar aesthetic to Portal, it offered a unique and interesting puzzle game, with a focus on manipulating parts of the wall and was a solid puzzle with a great design. Toxic Games has returned with a sequel, Q.U.B.E. 2. Will it also shine?
