Here I publish reviews on games that I play. Some of these reviews may contain minor or major spoilers, which are explicitly stated in relevant sections.

The main purpose of this is to:

  1. Capture my impressions of a game.
    Memory fades easily and it is nice for me to have a place like this, where I can recall my exact feelings of playing a game.
  2. Do some analysis and highlight things that I especially liked or disliked
    Everybody wants to be a game designer, I included! I think this compilation of good vs bad mechanics/designs/approaches may be useful for me.

All of this is 100% subjective, of course. If you don’t agree with something — this is fine! You may reach me out and we can discuss it if you want :)
