Flag This Down: Taxi Journey

Whenever Lexis Numerique announce a new game, they have my attention. And that's all because of In Memoriam (Missing: Since January in the States) from 2003 - a fascinating blurring of game and reality that I've not seen matched. I've yet to click with anything else they've made, but In Memoriam is enough to keep me interested in what's next. And what's next is, coo,…

Amy Wants To Hold Your Hand

Amy is a game with zombies in it, but don't leave just yet. I know we're oversaturated with them, but that doesn't mean we should be jaded about every upcoming game that involves the shambling nonliving. It's still possible to use them in interesting ways and, for me at least, even just shooting them in the head isn't boring quite yet. Amy's doing something very…
