LOW If I miss that jump one more time, I swear…

The Eternal Cylinder Preview

It’s only March, but I’m going to say that The Eternal Cylinder will be one the most innovative games of 2021. This action-adventure with survival elements puts the players in the shoes of cute and tiny creatures called Trebhums. Their objective is simple — save their world from the evil Cylinder. However, this basic premise is soon revealed to be a memorable odyssey.

Let Sleeping Dragons Lie

WTF: I can’t believe I used to think 8-bit music in headphones was pleasant.

Everhood Review

Immortality, Morality, and Dancing

HIGH The combination of profound themes and wacky characters is terrific.

LOW Dodging rhythm-based attacks off-beat is counterintuitive.

WTF Buddha throwing musical notes at me.
