The story's major revelations surround those few parts of the house that are tricky to access: the unlit crawlspaces that seem to have exits everywhere, and the ruined wing on the second floor. Piercing those recesses is fun, but the revelations themselves are a disappointment softened only by the ease with which you see them coming. The Suicide of Rachel Foster is quite effectively written and acted, at first - Nicole is an endearingly tough, drawling lead, and there's some pleasant suspense around Irving, the bumbling guardian angel who has secrets of his own.

Most of the guns are freely available from the very start, including a pistol that spews out about 45 bullets per second, an anti-tank rifle, and an absolutely devastating minigun. It’s the source of some of the most memorable shootouts I’ve ever had. … [Read more...] about Have You Played… E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy?
Here's a top down survival horror game with a comical bent, belonging to the same universe as Bendy and the Ink Machine. You play as Boris the Wolf, who must navigate a creepy old cartoon studio haunted by a "monstrous Ink Demon". There are survival elements (you need to watch your stamina, and you need to eat food) and apparently the levels are randomly generated, so despite the low cost you may get some mileage out of this one. … [Read more...] about Five new Steam games you probably missed (February 17, 2020)
