• Minute of Islands - Mo and Miri together

    Minute of Islands review

    Life as Mo knew it changed when the blight came. Deadly fungus spores taking over the islands where she lives and poisoning her friends and family. The four giants that roam the islands take on the enormous responsibility of keeping the islands safe, and they go deep underground to power the transmitters to keep the spores at bay. Theirs is a thankless, endless task, but what other choice do they have? Mo is scared of the surface, so she goes underground with them, and the giants deem her worthy of being the holder of the powerful Omni Switch.

  • Beacon Pines - one of the games featured in the Steam Game Festival

    Super Steam Game Festival 2021 Demos

    The Steam Game Festival is here for 2021, and there are more than 500 demos included! Unfortunately, I don’t have enough clones (or any) to get through anywhere near that many demos, and I imagine you don’t either. I have been able to play quite a few, though, and there’s still time to play even more! Here are my choices of where to start the festival.
