Video Game #20

Set in 2088, Tacoma places the player in a future where megacorporations are a key influence in society. The player takes on the role of Amitjyoti Ferrier, an employee of the Venturis Corporation who’s been tasked with entering the abandoned Tacoma station and retrieving AI data from each of its sections as well as retrieving the physical processing module of ODIN, the station's AI. Noted for the emotional connection the game forges between the player and the characters, Tacoma was well received by critics and fans of Fullbright's first game Gone Home.

Tabletop Game #20

There’s something for everyone to love in this shufflebuilding game for 2–4 players. Each player takes control of two factions and combines their decks to build their own legion of unbeatable minions. With over 60 factions to choose from which can combine to form over 1,770 unique pairs, Smash Up truly has something for everyone. Players may find themselves drawn to factions such as Aliens, Pirates, Wizards, Zombies, Bear Cavalry, Steampunks, Cyborg Apes, Time Travelers, Giant Ants, Kitty Cats, Princesses, Sharks, Grannies or Kaiju, to name just a few, or they may gravitate more toward factions 'inspired' by popular culture franchises such as Star Trek, Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Transformers. With a remarkable attention to detail and a sense of humor all its own, Smash Up is an award-winning labor of love that will always leave players wanting more.

Video Game #21

Noted for its story, character and atmosphere, OFF had developed a strong cult following even before a sanctioned fan translation into English was released. Following the mysterious Batter on his sacred mission to purify the world of OFF, the game's story slowly unfolds as the player is led through different Zones which are as memorable as they are bizarre. Created entirely by writer and designer Mortis Ghost and composer Alias Conrad Coldwood, OFF both celebrates and subverts conventional RPG mechanics with a unique blend of combat, puzzles and exploration that were inspired by games like Killer7, Final Fantasy and Myst.
