Tidy your room!
Do you know how many different ways you can move a string and some pegs? Let me show you, because you will certainly find out if you play the next game listed. Bending a string around a bunch of pegs leaves so much open space to wrap your string around and so many pictures to create. If you aren’t interested in the simplicity of string based puzzles, you can attempt to connect planets together to trade, frantically try to clean your room before your mother comes home, take on a bunch of monsters by blowing them off your platform, and flee from a cat in a world of hazards.

Play something for nothing
From extremely challenging platformers that challenge your typing skills to walking simulators just meant for relaxation, there is a bit of everything to be played this week. Starting off, I have a platformer that might cause you to rage quit – but it is very unique in concept. You must type in order to move from area to area, in search of a mysterious item that will save your species. If difficult platformers aren’t your thing, you can explore beautiful worlds full of swaying grass and nice structures in a well made walking simulator or solve some light bending puzzles and take photos of a strangely abandoned planet. Speaking of abandoned, you might want to find out what mysteries are deep within a house where the family was murdered, or even explore the memories of your late mother. There are many types of adventures to explore… Read the rest of this entry »
Detectives, skulls birds
This week, I bring you a bunch of strange games to explore and think about during your weekend. In my bag of games, I have a super colorful, yet very challenging game about gaining souls and throwing creatures against much stronger creatures in hopes of destroying them. I have a game about being lost in a childlike mind – stuck in a world where you are forgetting yourself, trying to escape against the wishes of your old friends. A cool car racing game, where a giant decorated skull challenges you, and guides you through intense courses and even through space. A game following the thoughts of a serial killer, and another inside the mind of a detective that can’t quite solve a case… Plenty of new adventures and worlds for you to dive right into.

Typing, golf, nightmares
Remember in school when your teacher would have you play those typing games, just to learn how to use a keyboard? Imagine if instead of your teacher it was filmmaker David Lynch teaching you everything you need to know about typing. Maybe then you would have paid more attention! You can find out if that’s the case via one of this week’s free games. However, If you already know how to type, you could also learn how to play a new type of golf, explore a puzzle filled dungeon, start your own conspiracies through Twitter, or lead a team through a post-disaster world. All of these amazing worlds are buried below. Read the rest of this entry »

Visual novels have been experiencing a cultural renaissance in recent years as developers continue to challenge genre conventions and tackle themes that AAA titles are hesitant to explore. Last year saw a flood of VNs capture the popular consciousness, but Butterfly Soup, in particular, charmed its way into players’ hearts and shot to the top of critics’ radars. Now there’s a sequel in development, due in the summer of 2019, and I’ve been speaking to developer Brianna Lei about how she hopes to continue the story.
Warning: This article contains spoilers for Butterfly Soup 1.
