Shipwreck Escape

Shipwreck Escape

So I wrote a review around half way through the game. Im new to reviews and wanted to edit mine now that I finished the game.

The game itself is fun. Some levels feel super easy and come to you right away while other levels take some time and “trial and error” before you understand what needs to be done. There are multiple endings so if you want to at the end you can go through again just to unlock these different endings. For me it took about 9 hours to complete but being a puzzle game, some probably could do it much quicker!

## Angelo and Deemon: One Hell of a Quest

This game had been on my radar for a long time but bad reviews always put me off. I finally saw it on sale for just over €2 and bought it.

The dialogues are a bit simplistic but there are a couple of funny moments. The game flows well, the in-game help is good (no need to look for walkthroughs) and, thanks to the nice voice acting, the two and a half hours or so are worth the full price of the game.

Although the game is short, there is never the impression of seeing something cut or rushed. Everything is very clean, without bugs. Most of the game follows a sharable logic, except for a couple of points where you have to read the mind of the developers. Points that we can solve thanks to the (aforementioned) in-game help.

*– [Real player with 10.3 hrs in game](*

Very nice, but somewhat flawed game.


- Artwork. It's top-notch. Splendid characters on splendid backgrounds. Animation is somewhat simplistic, but nice nonetheless.

- Voice acting. Very good for an indie game. Even the Ben's voice matches the original perfectly.

- Puzzles. Very good. Challenging enough to please a seasoned adventure gamer. Rare find nowadays.

- Plot. It's OK. Good pace, nice ideas.


- Writing. Some characters and their stories aren't consistent enough. Some are plain silly.

Keeping his word, Wlad Marhulets—CEO and founder of Unfold Games—refused a lucrative Epic games exclusivity offer, respecting the gamers who already added the game on their Steam wishlist. After knowing this, I promptly wishlisted DARQ without hesitation nor knowing more about its content. Establishing trust between the company and customers is the first step in making a product successful. Nowadays, the prevalence of mindless cash-grabbing strategy followed by various developers makes it unwonted to come across those who are willing to turn down a remunerative deal in favor of keeping their promise.

DARQ is the debut love child of horror and creativity by Unfold Games, better known as Wlad Marhulets. He's a critically acclaimed composer for films who has now taken to creating video games. I'd have gone through life not playing this had it not been for one fateful day- an account called Unfold Games just followed me on Twitter. Since then progress of its development popped up on my feed and ever fascinated, I monitored closely from behind the scenes. With the final product out for almost a year- I see that still not many have played it. So is this game worth losing sleep over?

![Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller]( "")

## Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller

When I started playing _Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller_ in 2016 the game's unusually brutal and violent nature caught me unaware and scared me away (the fact that the pace of the game slowed down after the opening events was also one of the reasons why I stopped playing it). When giving it a second chance more than 2 years later, I was positively disappointed. After having finished it I must say this is the goriest adventure game I have ever seen - many characters ended up getting killed/mutilated by the time the credits started to roll. This unexpectedly serious tone of course has nothing (or at least little) to do with _Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller_ being a great point and click adventure game, if we can overlook some of its shortcomings (and the base concept of the use of psychic abilities).

### Introduction

When I first encountered _Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller_, it was in a bundle -It looked interesting but I put it on the back burner since I was busy with other games. Fast forward a few years, I asked my friends on Steam what game I should play as a break from my usual things, and this title came up. After looking into I realized this seemed like a great idea! I had not played a point-and-click adventure game in a while, the other reviews seemed positive and it was recommended by friends as well. Drawn in by the comic book art style and the opportunity to play a female protagonist I booted the game up and instantly became addicted. This title offers a solid story, good gameplay and hours of fun for any gamer.

![Oxenfree]( "")

## Oxenfree

Oxenfree is another unique experience that I search Steam for, it’s odd how often I find what can be discussed into “what is a game?”

But like many of these games that I have played, such as Edith Finch, Her Story, and Orwell, there’s so much more to the story that simply dismissing it as “not a game” ignores the important question. “Is it worth the money for the experience, whether it’s a game or not?”

Oxenfree gets me to answer the question with an “Oh god, yes”. It’s non-traditional in how it does it, but it brought me in with a great story and then made it better for a second playthrough.

### **Information**

**Title:** Oxenfree

**Developer(s):** Night School Studio

**Publisher(s):** Night School Studio

**Genre(s):** Graphic adventure

**Release Date:** 15 Jan, 2016

**Mode(s):** Single-player

### **Review**

It's unusual to see an indie game that perfectly manages to balance both character-driven and plot-driven qualities of a story; consequently, this equipoise creates a spiffing interconnectedness between the two driving forces of the tale, which skyrockets the overall momentum of the experience. Oxenfree—the first game of Night School Studio—revolves around a bunch of teenagers who decide to travel to a remote, mystifying island to have some fun. While doing so, they recklessly try to put the sinister urban legends of the island to the test by perturbing the supernatural lifeform within it; well, in brief, the urban legends pass the test with grade A+.

![Slender Threads: Prologue]( "")

## Slender Threads: Prologue

This is a wonderfully promising demo and you should give it a shot.

Slender Threads is a point+click with traditional adventure puzzles. Based on the demo content, I would consider Slender Threads as an offbeat horror game with equal parts unsettling scares and gentle humor. If you liked Twin Peaks, Truberbrook, Thimbleweed Park, Nine Witches, or Willy Morgan and the Curse of Bonetown, then Slender Threads is right in your strike zone.

In this demo, we play as a book salesman who has just checked into a crappy motel in a podunk little town. Exploring the town, we meet a few humorous characters, such as a stereotypically unhelpful government employee and a smarmy realtor. However, we very quickly realize that something creepy is going on; we meet a suspicious masked man, witness a horrific accident; hear mysterious voices over a radio, and get drawn into investigating a mysterious disappearance.

Please see my review on

I have copied to text below.

Slender Threads is a game by Argentinian based indie company, Blyts, founded in 2008 and known for its other titles such as Nobodies and Kelvin and the Infamous Machine. The game is to be their latest release and falls into the modern point and click adventure category; it is somewhat similar in style to the fantastic Deponia and the remasters of the classic Monkey Island series. I was lucky enough to get access to the prologue chapter of the new game when we ‘met’ the developer at the recent Gamescom event and, despite there being no definitive final release date yet, I couldn’t wait to dive in.
