  1. Crucible Falls:Together Forever Review May 22, 2018 by Branden Lizardi When I heard that we had a co-op horror game on our review docket, I jumped at the opportunity. I was intrigued by the idea of a frightening experience tied together with cooperative gameplay. This is what Crucible Falls: Together Forever, by BakeNeko Games Limited, offered. Two players, trapped in the cryptic restrictions of a serial killer, work together to face the ordeals presented to them. Little did I know that the toughest ordeal was tolerating the mountain of flaws and issues within this game. Crucible Falls sounds like a fantastic idea. It’s a creative merger between two well-known genres. In a sense, this is the essence of the game. It’s a great idea, but nothing more.

  2. Cast of the Seven Godsends Review Cast of the Seven Godsends Review May 22, 2018 by Jonathan Simpson Cast of the Seven Godsends from Merge Games is a faithful tribute to old school arcade titles like Ghouls ‘n Ghosts. Unfortunately, in being so faithful the game is polluted with many outdated mechanics leading to a frustrating experience.
  3. The Office Quest Review May 21, 2018 by Tom Olson If you are in the mood for a pleasant point-and-click adventure, then The Office Quest will keep you entertained for an evening or two. It’s a straight port from the mobile version, but still works well enough on a PC that it’s not overly obvious. The charming art style initially attracted me, but the challenging and fun puzzles are what kept me going until the end.
  4. Kirby Star Allies Review May 21, 2018 by Cameron Davies Kirby Star Allies is a forgettable experience from start to finish, with an underwhelming story which is only remedied by a few select features such as a decent multiplayer and a fun boss rush mode.

    Video games are great at bringing people together, but for years, many have felt left out. People with impaired vision, hearing, or mobility often struggle to enjoy a medium that combines images, sound, and interactivity.
