HOGuru Plays – Haunted Hotel

HH1A

With this game, I delve back into the history of HOGs, to a time when players were expected to just be happy that they were faced with a screen full of random garbage and a list of specific things to click on. A time before narrative coherence, integrated puzzles, or any conception of fairness in HOS design.


HOGuru Plays – Nightmares From The Deep 2: The Siren’s Call

I’d played the last game in the Nightmares From The Deep series, and enjoyed it thoroughly, so my expectations were high going into this game. I’ll start off this piece by saying that yes, they were met, and this is another high-quality game published by Artifex Mundi, but in addition to general production excellence, the game had something of a huge surprise for me.
