I was a bit of a latecomer to the mysterious and magical world of H. P. Lovecraft. I was always aware that he existed and I've obviously been given clues to the universe through a lot of games, comics, and literature, but it's only recently that I've read some of the more interesting work, diving into the theories, lore, and sub-narratives while experiencing Call of Cthulhu back in 2018. So when Lovecraft's Untold Stories arrived on Xbox One I was very keen to see what this game could offer to the world. But does it pay a fitting homage to the legacy of the master, or does it drive itself around the bend to madness?

We’re in a curious state of being with Alder’s Blood: Definitive Edition. The craft on display in this stealthy turn-based strategy game is superb, and we can’t help but admire the nihilistic Banner Saga-style art and world. But it’s a beautifully designed chair that we find painful sitting in, thanks to its randomness, its punishing failure, and its unwieldy management layers.

In 1993, Id Software revolutionized the first person shooter genre with Doom. Finally, in 1996 the studio was ready for a proper follow-up. Needless to say there was a lot to live up to, especially for it to succeed. Arguably just as revolutionary and fantastic as its spiritual predecessor, Quake came out as another huge success - both critically and commercially.

It pushes back on the Artifex Mundi template, and while it doesn’t do anything you’d classify as unexpected, it at least makes you snort and chuckle as it goes through those motions. There’s a flow to the puzzles, but not at the expense of challenge, and you’ll arrive at its multiple endings with something approaching satisfaction.

It was way back in October 2019 when we first heard news that Failbetter Games would be taking their PC hit Sunless Skies: Sovereign Edition to Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, with a planned early 2020 launch spoken of. Of course, much went on from there on out, wiping 2020 plans off the list of many. Now though it's time to move ahead as we find the game rocking up in console-land.
