"very charming and well-written game from what seems to be nihon falcom's golden period, along with their in-house band, jdk. doesn't go anywhere interesting in the end but i enjoyed myself a lot."
|9 99%||Pathologic 2 (2019) - Feb 04, 2020
"bodies, theatre, colonialism, disease, a million different ideas wrapped up in an incredible convergence of mechanics and themes. godlike visual design. inspiring and exhausting. i have never gotten so angry at my computer."
|4 52%||Manifold Garden (2019) - Feb 04, 2020
"looks pretty cool, but too-simple puzzles are overcompensated for by obscure exploration."
|4 52%||Inside (2016) - Feb 04, 2020
"the ending was pretty hilarious but too much heavy-handed "atmosphere" and too little...anything else."
|5 73%||Slay the Spire (2019) - Feb 04, 2020
"visuals are boring and the music is crap, but yeah. an incredibly tightly tuned combination of deck-builders and roguelites. as repetitive as binding of isaac and others but turn-based strategy is easier for me to deal with."

"amanita's games are really cute."
|5 73%||Bastion (2011) - Feb 04, 2020
"not quite as beautiful or in-depth as transistor but still really dynamic and fun. fantastic narration."
|4 52%||The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (2014) - Feb 04, 2020
"well-designed but neither the varied-yet-repetitive dungeon crawling nor the, uh, "toilet" aesthetic are even a tiny little bit made for me."
|6 88%||Sunless Sea (2015) - Feb 04, 2020
"beautifully relaxing victorian eldritch horror. i absolutely *love* the itemisation of intangible concepts - all those searing enigmas and zee stories and memories of distant shores. there is nowhere near enough randomisation to support the roguelite structure; dying and then redoing the same story snippets several times over is a chore."
|5 73%||Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls (2014) - Feb 04, 2020
"possibly my favourite danganronpa game in terms of visuals; one area looked straight out of some thecatamites stuff. the shooter stuff is pretty bad though, and the satirical section on the sexualisation of children in anime *barely* functions as a critique, and is pretty much intolerable."
