Have You Played… Old Man’s Journey?

I am neither old nor a man, but boy did Old Man's Journey hit me right in the feels. I never thought I'd have much in common with a rotund, white-haired fisherman living on top of a cliff in a sleepy seaside village, but let me tell you, underneath his jolly, Father Christmas facade and his 'awww, let's herd some sheep and take a nice…

It's a gentle story-o-puzzler with a picturebook…

Hill-raiser: Old Man’s Journey demonstrates how to deform gorgeous terrain

Old Man's Journey [official site] is one of those games which caught my eye entirely because of the artwork. It reminded me of some boardgame artists I really like, as well as some charming French children's book illustrations I half-remember from my childhood. BUT!

Impressions: Secrets Of Raetikon

Ignore the terrible name - Secrets Of Raetikon is absolutely lovely. From And Yet It Moves developers Broken Rules, this serene action explorer gives you wings and lets you fly. Because you play a bird, see. Sorry metaphors. Just out on Steam's Early Access, I've been having a splendid time. Here are my impressions so far.

Looking Fly: Secrets Of Raetikon Is Gorgeous

I am deathly afraid of heights, yet I desperately long to fly high above the clouds, unrestrained by any sort of machinery or the laws of physics. This is the complex duality of my nature. If I was actually granted the power of flight, I'd be the worst superhero ever - too busy screaming until I vomited a lung on confused bystanders to save anybody.…
