Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes – PC Game Review

What is Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes

Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes is an extraordinary point-and-click adventure created by Daedalic Entertainment GmbH – the creators of the award winning games “The Whispered World” and “Deponia”. They had made another adventure named Edna & Harvey before – it is called “The Breakout”. In contrast Harvey’s New Eyes’s protagonist isn’t Edna like in “The Breakout” but Lilli – her best friend. It all starts in a garden behind a monastery, where Lilli is trying to rake up leaves on the ground, and the narrator welcomes you to the game.

The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile – PC Game Review

What is The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile

The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile is a brutal fast-paced action platformer. It’s gruesome, violent and full of action. The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile was originally released in 2011 on Xbox 360. From 12 May, 2017 it’s upgraded version is available on STEAM. The art style is characteristic for Ska Studios. I played their souls-like game Salt and Sanctuary before The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile and the art style is identical. No shame. It’s still unique and remarkable and what’s more important it fits the game styles their making.

Just Ignore Them – PC Game Review

What is Just Ignore Them

Just Ignore Them is a short pixel-graphic point-and-click adventure with slightly horror atmosphere. It has multiple endings and they’re based on your choices. To be exact a good one and a bad one. To achieve the good one, you have to behave well. To play the bad one, just kill someone when you have the chance. So there’s no science. What I really like is how open and uncensored are the dialogs between two main characters. Yes, Just Ignore Them warns you in the beginning that it contains violence, strong language and disturbing graphic. But c’mon pixelated disturbing graphic doesn’t even count. It’s pixelated… Even though Just Ignore Them managed to stay creepy and messed-up in the right way.

And one important thing – it isn’t based on jump-scares at all. All fear is in your mind.
