I'll give an anti-recommendation for Nyheim. Beautiful production, and some good ideas for gameplay, but ultimately it's very random and tedious. There's a giant map with too many locations, and you can only move and encounter one space at a time. There's a mechanism where if you roll a green side you lose food, and that can happen turn after turn until you starve, because there are no strong guarantees of finding food anywhere in particular. There are items that can manipulate dice, but you can only save one per character and a lot of times, they're just not that useful.
The comparison to Elder Sign is what sold me, but Elder Sign is a much much better game. It's not even close, really. This could have been great with better development, but I think they put more into the visual style than game testing.
I gave it a good chance for a couple hours, but it's an easy delete for me at this point.
