Hel is a cool idea: a procedurally generated Norse afterlife where you wander through ominous ruins in the dark night. In practice it’s really nicely done graphically, but super easy to get lost and turned around, and the options are unpolished (it froze for me a couple times). There’s a way to complete the game but I haven’t done it yet…I’ll have to come back to this one.Read more...

Another excellent walking sim from Connor Sherlock here, and also part of his first collection of games. Sunken Citadel gives you a torch and sends you deep underground to explore an underground complex that reminds me of Dark Souls’s castle complex in both mood and scale. Navigating the dungeon here is at times claustrophobic and disorienting, and then suddenly sublime and awe-inspiring. It’s also very dark, and I found myself repeatedly expecting something terrifying to appear around a corner.Read more...
