New Releases

Narita BoyWindows PC (Steam, GOG), MacOS (Steam), Switch, PS4
“Inside the binary code, the digital realm connects with reality. Him has returned and deleted The Creator’s memories. Supervisor program, Motherboard, and her agents have activated the Narita Boy protocol. The Stallions are coming, and the Digital Kingdom needs a hero.”
We played the demo for this game when it became available back in February. Based on our impressions this game is all about the experience, and soaking in its world and story.

8Doors: Arum’s Afterlife Adventure – Windows PC (Steam, GOG)
“8Doors” is a story-driven Metroidvania-style action platformer heavily influenced by Korean folktales. Play as ‘Arum’, a brave girl that has voluntarily entered the realm of the afterlife in search of her father’s soul and help guide her through the ‘8 Doors of Purgatory’ to solve the mysteries that lie deep within.”
We plan on reviewing this on April 26th, so stay tuned! Of course if it looks interesting to you, don’t wait for us.
