Two Tribes has been making puzzle-styled games for over a decade. It was announced that their latest game: Rive, would be the final game from the studio. After making a name for themselves in the puzzle genre, the team’s final outing is their most different and one of the best from the studio.
I can honestly say that I have not played a platformer like Metrico+. Developed by studio Digital Dreams, the game is equal parts unique design and aesthetics. Its unusual style may put some people off, but this could be literally the most fun you’ll have with bars and graphs.
RPGs have always had a foundation in the table-top genre. Table-top options like adventure books and Dungeons and Dragons helped to provide the architecture for games like Baldur’s Gate and more. Tin Man Games have been re-releasing classic adventure books for modern audiences over the years, but The Warlock of Firetop Mountain represents something new.
This is a game that is trying to capture the table-top and rogue-like/RPG audiences of today. Delivering something that may not hit each flavor perfectly, but is a great first step nonetheless.
The Final Station starts off with a great hook. The concept is that zombies have taken over and you must survive via train. While the basics are there, The Final Station just doesn’t have enough steam to make it to its destination.
