THE LOG HOUSE (Guest Review)

THE LOG HOUSE (Guest Review)

“I know that they are strong and fast. They don’t feel fear, don’t even know what it means. You can’t ward them off with charms and urban legends. They can climb and run and they never tire. Only the light can distract them, and once that has gone, you have nothing. They will see you, and once they have, they will never stop until they have you. If they knew we were here, we’d already be dead.” -Penny, protagonist of…

Needless to say I was wielding a hefty bar of expectations going into this. You play a member of the FBI’s Serial…

The Consuming Shadow- Minimalism Maximized by B.B. Blazkowicz

The Consuming Shadow- Minimalism Maximized by B.B. Blazkowicz

The Consuming Shadow is a 2D rogue-like survival horror game by Yahtzee Crowshaw. In it you play as a character known only as “The Scholar” who is tasked with stopping an invading “Lovecraftian” god by discovering and completing a banishment ritual at Stonehenge. Game-play is split between plotting courses across an overland map of England in your car and exploring various “Dungeons”. I chose the title “Minimalism Maximized” because the game executes a dizzying level of subtly and complexity using…
