Flewn Review: The Old Whale and the Sea

Flewn By: Gabriel Smetzer It's hard not to be instantly captivated by the screenshots advertising Gabriel Smetzer's new interactive story called Flewn about an old whale on stilts searching for the ocean. The artwork is definitely the game's strongest point. It looks almost like something out of a Tim Burton movie. While it is advertised as a game, there isn't much game here. It's primarily an interactive storybook in which you swipe…

It might be my game of the year, as no other game burrowed into my head that deep. It's such a unique and chilling experience. At five bucks, it was already a great deal, but for those who weren't ready to take the plunge at that price, there's really…

One Button Travel By: TheCodingMonkeys Let me say this right up front: I haven't played any of these "chat" games before, such as Lifeline or The Martian. I don't have an Apple Watch, and I didn't think the experience would be quite the same on an iPhone. But One Button Travel looked intriguing enough and the art style grabbed my attention. So I wanted to give it a try. It immediately made…
