Are you a fan of Myst? Odyssey is cut from the same cloth, tasking players with unravelling the mysteries of a 3D environment, solving mind-bending puzzles and exploring in first-person as they go. After a short stint in Early Access, it’s just released on Steam.
For more small studio goodness, check out our list of the . Odyssey
While Myst is a bit old-school now, Odyssey features physics-based puzzles and a story penned by Eric Lindstrom, writer of Tomb Raider Underworld. 
The game itself is developed by The Young Socratics, a group focused on delivering educational videogames that are also actually fun to play. It’s a fusion of scientific literature and videogame design basically.

Late Shift review

Added: 24.04.2017 8:00 | 4 views | 0 comments


For those who view video games as an adjunct to cinema rather than an alternative, the rise and fall of the interactive movie in the mid-1990s was something of a befuddling mystery. For a moment, and from a particular angle, the cinematic Choose Your Own Adventure, a genre facilitated by the advent of CD-Rom technology that allowed film clips to be spliced together to tell a story according to the whims of the viewer, seemed like the future of games. It was not to be.
Late Shift is one of a gathering number of contemporary projects, from Quantum Break to Her Story to Wales Interactive's own The Bunker, to return to the inextinguishable promise of interactive filmmaking. This is a broadly traditional take on the concept, albeit one that's been lavishly filmed, and penned by Michael R. Johnson, co-writer of Guy Ritchie's 2009 boisterous take on Sherlock Holmes. You play as Matt Thomson, a wunderkind mathematics student with a fruity South London accent who moonlights as a security guard in a car park, an underground stable for luxury vehicles.
One night, while working the late shift, Thomson becomes embroiled in a plot to scam an eminent London auction house. The target is a Ming dynasty-era rice bowl that is worth millions. It's a choice of McGuffin that leads to some inadvertently comical lines (e.g.: "I haven't got your fucking rice bowl"), but the script reassures us that it's a prize for which, over the centuries, "many have died". Thomson's descent into the criminal world is swift but not necessarily inexorable. The choices you make as the story unravels dictate whether or not he crosses lines that take him into the realms of felonious guilt, or remains an unwilling co-conspirator, able to later prove his innocence.

Little Nightmares review

Added: 21.04.2017 14:00 | 9 views | 0 comments


is everything you may have loved about LittleBigPlanet thrown into a sausage grinder with everything you may have dreaded in Silent Hill. A side-scrolling 3D platformer that conjures up a wealth of grisly implications within a brisk five-hour runtime, it reapplies Media Molecule's conceit of playing a nimble tot among gargantuan domestic objects to a fetid, ocean-going warren of beaten metal and oozing flesh, touched a little questionably by imagery derived from the atrocities of the 20th century.
Like LittleBigPlanet (and last year's overly saccharine Unravel), the game is a testament to the power of childish make-believe. But where LittleBigPlanet's boulder-sized yarnballs and undulating felt backdrops celebrate a child's freedom from the hang-ups of an adult's imagination, Little Nightmares channels the fear of a toddler navigating a world it doesn't yet fit: that period in life when the edge of a dining table is an impassable horizon, stairways are mountainsides, and turning a door handle requires the full weight of your body.
The game casts you as Six, a diminutive stowaway in a luminous yellow mac, armed with naught but her wits and a flip-top lighter that is used to kindle lamps that serve as checkpoints. Your goal is simply to get through the game's swaying labyrinth intact - yanking on switches and dragging objects around in order to activate mechanisms or open doors many, many times your height. Six is a delicately wrought little personality, her eyes darting to puzzle props as she cups the lighter's flame, and there's a gentle absurdity to the sight of her hurling enormous tubes of toilet roll at breakable surfaces, or tugging a giant key from a peg by swinging back and forth. That absurdity fades swiftly, however, when you encounter the creatures these objects belong to.
