Steam Game Festival 2021 February – These are the indie game demos we tried
Naturally, we browsed and browsed until there was nowhere left to browse, and tried our hands at some of the more interesting-looking titles on offer – some of them proved to be just as pleasant as they seemed, while others were… well, disappointing, to say the least.

Amnesia: Rebirth – A dark, but less memorable descent – Review
Amnesia: Rebirth starts not entirely unlike its predecessor, although the circumstances surrounding it are quite different.

What Happened, a psychological horror game from developer Genius Slackers, touches upon a topic that I feel needs more exposure – it tells the story of a disturbed high school student, Stiles, as he struggles with severe depression and anxiety, highlighting his unstable mental health through a series of a surreal, symbolic experiences.
