You Should Be Playing ‘NoStranger’

NoStranger (No Stranger) By: Scott Mulligan It's rare these days for me to feel so strongly about a game that I need to write a post just to make sure people know the game exists. But the developer of NoStranger emailed me late last night and I was curious, so I fired up the game. An hour later, I was forcing myself to stop playing so I could get some sleep. I…

‘Causality’ Review: If I Could Turn Back Time

‘Hidden Folks’ Review: Poke Some Folks

Hidden Folks By: Adriaan de Jongh I'll admit, I had some reservations about Hidden Folks ever since I heard about it. Even though I liked Where's Waldo as a kid, I'm not a big fan of hidden object games. And in all appearances, that's what the game seemed to be, albeit in a cute package. I saw screenshots and GIFs of it and thought it looked charming, but was worried there wouldn't…
