This Is Not A Review: Seeking Dawn

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Seeking Dawn, developed and published by Multiverse.


Planet Nomads Preview

While I can’t say for sure what’s going on inside the developers’ heads, it’s impossible to look at Planet Nomads’ aesthetic and not come away with the impression that – at least on some level, the game exists as a way to make good on No Man’s Sky’s promises. It’s a game matching NMS’ 70s sci-fi look but keeping the scope to a single planet. Will setting more modest goals lead to a better result?

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

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