Bright Memory: Infinite – PS5 Review

Bright Memory: Infinite is a sci-fi single-player FPS set in 2036 China where you investigate a singularity threatening the world. It was made by indie developer Zeng Xiancheng of FYQD Studio with their first major release and publisher Playism (DEEEER Simulator). Bright Memory was originally released in Steam early access in 2019 as an episodic game. After success on Steam, Xiancheng was inspired to re-release Bright Memory in full rather than in episodes. FYQD Studio has found success, both in Steam early access and being awarded the Unreal Dev Grant from Epic Games. I played the PS5 version of Bright Memory and it is also available now on Windows PC, Switch and Xbox series S&X. We wrote an article on the GameSpot Play For All 2021 gameplay trailer reveal which you read here. ...

Gibbon: Beyond The Trees Switch Review

Developed by Broken Rules, Gibbon: Beyond The Trees is a hand-drawn adventure game featuring three adorable gibbons as they travel through lands unknown. I first played the start of this at WASD Live in London, and it was one of the stand-out titles for me there. I’m very happy to finally finish it and write a review. It is currently available on Apple Arcade, Steam, Nintendo Switch and itch. Gibbon: Beyond The Trees - Move over Tarzan! Beyond the aforementioned cute and fuzzy lesser apes, this is a game focusing on the ecological challenges that gibbons face in the wild. Witnessed from the perspective of Pink (no, not the singer), Beyond The Trees doesn't shy away from showing the destructive force that the human race sometimes is. It highlights issues such as deforestation, poaching an...

Dolmen PS5 Review

Almost a year after Dolmen was announced at a Koch Media preview event, it is finally here. I've been anticipating this since I saw it and now I finally get to play it. My initial impression last year was that looked like a mixture of Dark Souls and Dead Space - Dark Souls in Space! If executing correctly, that sounds like an amazing idea. Dolmen - Less Like Souls, More Soulless Dolmen is the first major game developed by Brazilian studio Massive Work Studio and published under the newly formed Prime Matter. The game was released on May 20th, 2020 on both generations of PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. A dolmen by definition is a single chamber tomb. Will this game live up to its namesake? Will the game be filled with wonder and treasures, or will it be empty and nothing but bare bones? Rea...

Midnight Ghost Hunt PC Review

How do you make games like Phasmophobia and Prop Hunt better? Why you stitch them together in a Frankenstein-esque attempt to create a miracle and spit in the face of God. At least, that's what Vaulted Sky Games, the developers of Midnight Ghost Hunt, would tell you. And I’ll be damned, but they might actually have the style to pull it off. Available through Steam's Early Access, the ambitious title does a lot to stack up to the experience of the gaming titans it’s riffing from. Sure, there are some rough spots, but this game does a LOT with its concept. Who you gonna call? Midnight Ghost Hunters! Yeah, that doesn’t sound right… I'll tell you right off the bat that this is a game that you should be playing with friends. Much like prop hunt and Phasmophobia before it, Midnight Ghost Hunt ...
