‘Causality’ Review: If I Could Turn Back Time

Causality By: Loju Games As you might know, Snakebird was my 2016 Game of the Year. It showed me that a turn-based, seemingly simple puzzler can be tough as nails but user-friendly in every possible way. It made me more critical of the puzzle games I play, looking at them with fresh eyes. Are they just throwing everything they could think of at a player to make it seem longer? Are they punishing the player to make it seem more difficult? Is there anything between the puzzles and the player Read more [...]

My Week Unwrapped: February 11, 2017

Welcome back, everyone, to the latest installment of My Week Unwrapped! It's been a busy week for me, but some of the games I'm playing aren't coming out until next week and I can't talk about them yet.

YANKAI’S TRIANGLE Review: Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop

YANKAI'S TRIANGLE By: Kenny Sun Kenny Sun's YANKAI'S TRIANGLE is a very simple puzzle game. Perhaps under different circumstances, I might have found it too simple and deleted it after a few minutes. But instead, I played through over three hundred levels in less than twenty-four hours and still keep going back to it. I can't stop. And since there's effectively an infinite number of randomly generated levels, I don't have to. So what makes YANKAI'S TRIANGLE so compelling? I think it's a number Read more [...]
