Kairo's alpha impressed John last year and Nathan enjoyed his wander around the recently released demo, but I can't tell you whether the full game lives up to the promise of those early portions because I haven't played it yet. I shall remedy that soon as the first-person adventure is out now and I have a definite hankering to explore its strange spaces, and the skeletons of machinery and mystery within. It's $8 and is available for Windows and OSX, with a Linux release due later this year. We've shared the most recent trailer before but here it is again, because moving images are fine entertainment for the eyes.
