Game: The Night Of The Rabbit
Format: PC & Mac
Genre: Point & Click Adventure
Developer: Daedalic Entertainment
Publisher: Daedalic Entertainment
How many games do you know of which can really deliver this most subtle of experiences?
Well, not many, let me assure you.
The Night Of The Rabbit is amongst the very few modern adventure games which not only aspires to, but actually achieves this.
One of my non-adventure gaming chums asked me to try and describe what it’s like to play this game. My response? “Like a holiday from all the guns & ammo”. But this doesn’t tell the whole tale. It’s not so much a holiday it’s more an escape. (more…)

Murdered: Soul Suspect takes players into a whole new realm of mystery where the case is personal and the clues just out of reach. A new take on the action/adventure genre, Murdered: Soul Suspect challenges players to solve possibly the hardest case of all… their own murder.
Murdered: Soul Suspect sees players take the role of Ronan O’Connor, a detective with a checkered past, whose life is brought to an untimely end by a brutal and relentless killer. Unable to move on and stuck in the limbo world of Dusk, he won’t find peace until he can bring his killer to justice from the afterlife.
Using his new-found supernatural abilities, Ronan is free to explore the town of Salem, Massachusetts, from his shadowy afterlife. Unable to communicate with the detectives on his case, Ronan must read the minds of the living, influencing their thoughts and actions. As part of his investigation, he must interrogate the ghosts of Salem’s past citizens to piece together the puzzle, while battling demonic spirits to save his soul and uncover the shocking truth about who is responsible for his death.

Game: Rush Bros.
Developer: XYLA Entertainment
Publisher: XYLA Entertainment
I like to consider myself a fan of fast-paced platformers. I cut my teeth on Sonic the Hedgehog, defeated Dr. Fetus in Super Meat Boy and I wouldn’t rest on DustForce until I had “Double S” ranked a stage with an acceptable placing on its leaderboards. Not only that, but I also have a personal weak spot for games where the music and game react with one another, BIT.TRIP I love thee!
Rush Bros. wears its influences proudly on its sleeve, promising to be a “pulse-pounding, music infused platform racing game”. The levels respond to the beat of the music, and there is a perfectly competent split screen mode, but did it make my pulse pound?
No, although it did raise my blood pressure. (more…)

About five years ago I started to feel weird. I first felt it while being on trains, in cars or buses. I couldn’t really point my finger on what it was. I felt uneasy, uncomfortable, all in all pretty weird. It wasn’t really a problem when I was inside and especially not outside. But it stayed with me. I felt dizzy with a dry mouth and I had the feeling that I was going to puke every second. Soon I started to feel like this a lot. And by a lot, I mean pretty much all the time; in classes, at home alone, while out with my friends or family. It was bad. Luckily I still managed to finish my Economics school with good grades, thanks to teachers that understood what was happening to me.
After that it didn’t take me long to figure out what was going on. I started having panic attacks. When I realized this it only got worse. It happened more often until it was happening on a daily basis. It was bad. Because I was afraid of having panic attacks while not being in a safe environment I started suffering from Agoraphobia as well. Whenever I had the time to think about something, this was the first thing that came to my mind. Standing at a grocery store waiting to pay? Oh yeah, you might have a panic attack now. What’s gonna happen? And boom, there it was. I was devastated. I didn’t want to get out of bed, meet friends or do anything in general.
Being of the view that it’s always good to get an outside perspective I’d been in therapy for a number of years already, but it wasn’t really helping. Things looked bleak.
The core of this story is how one simple, almost stupid, game helped me get over this. And the game?
Angry Birds. (more…)
