‘CubeQuest’ Review: The Perfect Sequel

CubeQuest - a QB Game By: Stephan Goebel The original QB - a cube's quest released almost exactly six years ago and I had mostly positive things to say about it in my review.

After all, this is a game where the main mechanic is taking things out from boxes and placing them around a room. You don't need a…

Voodoo Detective By: Short Sleeve Studio Despite being a longtime fan of point-and-click adventures, there's a lot of them that I start and never finish. This is usually due to either getting hopelessly stuck and not wanting to look up answers, or simply losing interest due to the writing or length of the game.

‘Moncage’ Review: It’s All About Perspective

Moncage By: Optillusion / X.D. Network I knew the first time I saw a teaser of Moncage that it would be something special. I just didn't quite grasp the extent of its brilliance until I finally got my hands on it. There's a little bit of Vignettes in there, as well as some Gorogoa, the way you play with perspective to unlock new scenes. But Moncage pushes its mechanics to the limits…
