Inside (Switch) Review

Portable Nightmares

HIGH One of this gen’s best indies, now on the go.

LOW Nothing new here for returning players.

WTF The ending is still one of the wildest moments in all of gaming.


Paratopic Review

People Are Strange, When You’re A Stranger

HIGH Lo-fi visuals and eerie atmosphere.

LOW The experience might be too short for some players.

WTF What is on those tapes?


SOMA (Safe Mode) Review

Better Safe Than Sorry

HIGH Safe Mode opens the door for timid players to experience SOMA’s story.

LOW Chase sequences now lack a sense of danger.

WTF I’ll never get used to using the right trigger to interact with objects.


Dusk Preview

The best part about experimental retro games is the ability for game makers with some vision to explore an interesting idea – what if previous generations of devs kept making titles at a given level of technology rather than constantly chasing graphical improvements?


Little Nightmares: The Hideaway Review

A Recurring Dream

HIGH The furnace room is a hub, and it was satisfying to repeatedly return to it.

LOW This time around, the “Inside-lite” label is earned.

WTF Interacting with the Nomes is the core mechanic — the AI should work better than it does.
