Another Sight – Nintendo Switch | Review

There aren’t many video game studios in Italy, so it was interesting for me to see what this game from Lunar Great Wall Studios was like. Based in Milan, the studio only opened its doors in 2016, and Another Sight is its first game. Released originally for PC in 2018,…read more >

Neon Junctions – PS4 | Review

I have a thing for certain aesthetics, so booting up Neon Junctions I was pleased to see this puzzle game infused with the aesthetics of synthwave. I was then left disappointed as it had the same background and style throughout this short game. It's a very bland experience. Whilst it…read more >
