Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, developed by Starbreeze Studios, is a unique little bit of gaming.
Dust: An Elysian Tail is an independently developed game that was published by Microsoft last year. Developed by Humble Hearts, I just recently got around to playing it, and am here to tell you that… well, before I get ahead of myself, let’s do this in the usual format.
Banished is a game with an incredibly simple premise: You control between four and six families of people that have been exiled from their previous town and have to start over somewhere in the wilderness.

The Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville, available now on Steam, is a game that made me think. No, it didn’t present me with any interesting moral quandries, nor did it push gaming forward in any way.
