Wot I Think – Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist

Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist is the new game from the new studio from William Pugh, co-developer of The Stanley Parable. It starts British comedian Simon Amstell, and could arguably be said to maybe possibly feature a grappling hook. It’s free, and out now, and here’s whether it’s worth your precious, precious time.

The Beginner’s Guide To The Beginner’s Guide – The New Game From Stanley Parable Creator

Have You Played… The Stanley Parable?

Employee 432

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.
