My E3 2018 game impressions round up!
Interfectorem (2016) is a horror/mystery point-and-click game that truly utilizes the definition of its title: “killed, destroyed” throughout its narrative.
Telltale's The Walking Dead series turns the danger of zombies into a backdrop for the true story: the examination of humanity and the desperation that arises as a consequence of the apocalypse.
