mjs822 finished As Dusk Falls
I know these choose-your-own-adventure games are boring to some, and hell you could argue they aren’t even really games, but I feel compelled to play them all anyway. As Dusk Falls is another decent addition to the genre, focusing on the fallout of a robbery gone wrong in a sleepy Arizona town. You play as a few different characters first through the night of the robbery, and then trying to move on with the rest of their lives. There’s loads of different paths you could end up on- some story beats that seemed obvious, perhaps even unavoidable in my play through actually appear to be ones that only a minority of players ended up choosing. More than many other games of this type Im interested in replaying some sections just to see what else could happen, because the story seems like it could really change a lot with some different choices. But we’ll see! Also of note, a lot of threads are left hanging, clearly Interior Night is planning on a sequel. Sure, put it on Game Pass and I’ll be back.

mjs822 finished Somerville
The hallmarks of Limbo and Inside are there- short runtime, clever puzzles, trippy story told without dialogue. But where Somerville goes wrong reveals just what made those two so special. The 3D environment makes it confusing where you’re supposed to go or what could be interacted with; the character moves slow enough to make a player want to quit; and honestly I had no idea what was going on here story-wise by the end. I do think a 3D Limbo-like (is there a term for this?) could work, but this one isn’t it yet.
