I don’t know what it is but Wadjet games really know how to make a story. Not just the story but their character and world creation is next level. From the off, you are immediately thrown into the action and regardless of your previous experience, they make you feel like you have played these games for years. Not since their last game has I played a game that had me ignoring all my other real-world responsibilities, I just had to know what happened next and it really did deliver every time. The addition of touchscreen controls really takes it to the next level. Ok so sometimes I got frustrated by puzzles but that’s more my low IQ than the game and a few UI issues but who cares when you get such a fantastic dozen or so hours of a game. In short Wadjet Eye games knock out another stone-cold classic in the form of Unavowed and it is perfect for the Nintendo Switch.

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!
