I think I found my birthday present.
Pikuniku could be one of the best games I’ve played in a really long time. There is something about:
- The movement mechanics
- The goofy yet dark story
- And the brevity of the overall experience that speaks to me
Wyatt enjoyed it too!
If you are looking for a solid distraction with heart, look no further than Pikuniku.
5/5 – Pikuniku is a solid distraction with heart.

I love how smooth the movement looks. That dragon shot at the end… priceless!

Picked up BOXBOY! + BOXGIRL! over the weekend. Tried the co-op out with Wyatt. Gameplay is tight AND requires a bit of communication (re: patience). 😛
Looking forward to trying out the single-player.
I could never quite figure out what was happening in Playdead’s INSIDE. Even as the end credits rolled, I wasn’t sure what I had just experienced (thank you, Wikipedia, for clearing things up for me). The world of INSIDE comes across as harsh and hostile. A world in which life doesn’t have much meaning. Yet by the end of the game, INSIDE flips the typical video game narrative. For once, I wasn’t the hero.
4/5 – INSIDE is worth the trip due to it’s fantastic ending. Just wait for it. Don’t spoil it.
