GRIS: iOS First Impressions

GRIS By: Nomada Studio / Devolver Digital Ever since I first saw the trailer for Nomada Studio's gorgeous puzzle-platformer, GRIS, I've been hoping that it might come to iOS one day.

Sam Barlow’s Anticipated ‘Her Story’ Successor, ‘Telling Lies,’ Releases August 23rd (Preview Inside)

Telling Lies By: Sam Barlow / Annapurna Interactive Sam Barlow's Her Story is one of my favorite video games, perhaps the one that's stuck with me the most. I clearly remember back in 2015, getting it a few days ahead of release and thinking I would just play for a little bit and then get back to cleaning my apartment.
