Summary

I’m old enough to remember this genre the first time round! Huddled around a small screen, usually playing with mates and thinking every choice through. Such a thrilling experience even back then. Until now it’s mostly died out or lived on through books. Stories Untold let’s you not only relive the genre but also manages to encapsulate the feels and atmosphere when you play a game like this. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time as it just grabbed me and didn’t let go until it was over, I wanted more but I am so happy with what I got. Stories Untold is a short but excellent game and well worth checking out.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
