Gods Will Be Watching is an adventure game of tense moments, where you’ll be forced to make tough decisions that straddle the grey side of morality. Unfortunately the tough choices are sandwiched between poorly defined puzzles and an amazing pixel art style.
Abyss Odyssey is the latest game from Ace Team, the makers of the insane Zeno Clash and Rock of Ages. The developers continue their streak of original games with an attempt at combining rogue-lite design with fighting games. The experience is different but there is a certain lack of polish that keeps the game at the moment only skin deep.

The Wolf Among Us concluded its season lately and leaves some questions answered and raised a lot more.
