The Fidelio Incident – Review

Fidelio Incident Teaser

The Fidelio Incident is a 2 hour puzzle infused walking simulator. Graphics are gorgeous and realistic. Voice acting and sound are fantastic. The story revolves around a couple that got separated during a plane crash. There are also lots flashbacks describing how the two met in troubled times at the height of the Northern Ireland conflict.

Far From Noise – Review

Far From Noise - Significate Day

Far From Noise is one of those short but charming Indie titles. It asks existential questions through a conversation between the main protagonist and a stag.

Dear Esther: Landmark Edition – Review

dear esther - teaser

Dear Esther started the game genre of walking simulators. It is a first person exploration game that has no running, no jumping, no enemies, no shooting, no puzzles nor any form of survival. It is a game full of perfect moments, beautiful music and reflection. It wants to touch your heart and wants to show that video games can be much more than just achieving a mission. Read more
