Hob

Hob is a great game. It made me notice and enjoy things I'd normally overlook or filter out subconsciously. If you want something well-crafted, relaxing and engaging, give it a go....

Best games of 2016

Looking at this list now, I think if you only had to play one game from this list, make it: The Swapper It's a puzzle platformer with a self-cloning mechanic. There have been a few like it, but The Swapper really shines. The dark and brooding world you find yourself in will haunt and oppress and choke you the entire time.

I’m not a big fan of free-to-play games, but as long as they’re carefully designed, I don’t mind too much, either. The first impression of the game was good. Funny introductory dialogue, cute pixelated graphics, along with the realization that this is probably exactly what people feared Disney would do with the franchise, were all appealing. Following the tutorial instructions I quickly realized this is going to be a Tamagotchi game....
