Pony Island's puzzled got the better of my interest and patience, and not being a fan of the chaos hurt its chances of winning me over. I dig subversion under the right circumstances, but that is a perilously subjective tightrope to tread. The Hex sounds like it might fare better, though perhaps I'm just not as interested in works that exist solely to tear other works down.

Either way, good review. Tiptoeing around spoilers is never fun.


What does a retired demoscener get as a pension? Low anticipation, which is a cut of one's full time high anticipation...

^This.

Good job telling us about the game without telling us about the game. That ain't easy.

You missed a word here:

"Kid’s tale works not only because how innovatively it’s told..."

You're reviewing a bunch of games you can't fully talk about lately. I guess that sort of thing can keep a person sharp. Unlike say, not writing anything at all.

Also: another winning tagline! How long can he keep this up?

I don't have to prove I'm refined - that's what makes me refined!

I'm probably putting as much effort into taglines ad I am entire reviews. At some point, the pun streak will end and I will be very sad.

Thanks for the comments, both. I really dig Mullin's stuff; it's satire, so it isn't always above just poking fun, but there's always a narrative twisted up and cleverly included. It was a tricky review to pick through, but I don;t think I left anything dangerously spoilery in there.

Appreciate the catch, Marc. Thanks both for reading.


For us. For them. For you.
