Our 15 favourite PC games of 2020 so far

Halloo, gentle reader. Since we're half way through the entire year of 2020 (yet somehow it is also still March?), we decided to run down, lasso and tie up some of our favourite games from the last six months, and force them into a nice list for you. 2020 still has plenty of new PC games to come, of course, but these are the ones…

You can dive into In Other Waters’ extraterrestrial oceans today

In Other Waters sounds quite beautiful. It looks nice as well, with that cyan and yellow scheme above, but the most beautiful parts about it you won't see at all. They're described to you, an exosuit AI, by the xenobiologist wearing you while exploring an ocean full of alien lifeforms. The manage-y, explore-y, narrative-y sci-fi game is out today so you're welcome to dive in.…

In Other Waters review

In Other Waters invites you to map out alien seas this Spring

Lurking in the deepest depths since its successful Kickstarter campaign wrapped up in 2018, extraterrestrial xeno-biologist In Other Waters will finally surface on Steam later this Spring. Captained by developer Gareth Damian Martin and a crew of collaborators, In Other Waters doesn't let you go on a Subnautica-style ocean romp yourself. You're an AI pilot on that diver's back, guiding them through alien seas, plotting…

In Other Waters explores an alien ocean through a unique interface

I'm almost ready to leave the enticing waters of Subnautica, so I was pleased to find another alien ocean to submerge myself in this morning. I've just played the demo of In Other Waters, a narrative-driven exploration game about investigating a strange planet and doing xeno-biology.Unlike with Subnautica, my impression of what that world really looks like is entirely in my head. All I actually…
