Quiet re­nais­sance


The point-and-click ad­ven­ture con­tin­ues its quiet re­nais­sance on PC with the beau­ti­fully drawn and con­fi­dently de­signed Un­fore­seen In­ci­dents. It’s a stan­dard ad­ven­ture game, but with taste­ful hand-drawn art, lik­able char­ac­ters, and a com­pelling mys­tery con­cern­ing a vi­ral out­break.

Red Fac­tion: Guer­rilla Re-Mars-tered may have a pre­pos­ter­ous name, but it’s an ir­re­sistible op­por­tu­nity to play Vo­li­tion’s cult 2009 shooter on a mod­ern PC. The de­struc­tion sys­tem is still hugely im­pres­sive to be­hold, even if some of the mis­sion de­sign feels a bit out­dated.

Chasm is a pol­ished Metroid­va­nia about plung­ing into a seem­ingly bot­tom­less dun­geon. The con­trols are tight, the art is gor­geous, and the com­bat is chal­leng­ing, even if it doesn’t have many new ideas to bring to the genre.
