Review: Dream Quest

23 May 2014 0

Dream Quest is the opposite of Warhammer Quest. Owen wrote of Warhammer Quest, "There’s little in this game that you haven’t seen elsewhere, but you’ve rarely seen that stuff assembled into such an elegant, sophisticated package." Dream Quest takes some of gaming's hottest and most novel elements and joins them...

Four sides to every story.
One of the most heart-warmingly generous aspects of human nature is our unstoppable desire to anthropomorphise. After millions of years of bloody, unsentimental struggle on the savannah, the thing we are most eager to do with our hard-won sentience is project it...

He cut my head off because we were wearing the same hat. *Embarassing.*

Review

The most surprising thing about RCT 4 is that Atari kept their name on it.

How exactly does the "healing grenade" work? A gaming mystery.
When we talk about currency, we're really talking about time. People spend time doing things. If you spend time engaged in “work,” you're allowed to exchange a few semi-abstract timeness units in for slips of paper,...
