This is Passpartout: The Starving Artist. A silly, tranquil drawing game that sucked me in like no other drawing game ever could. You see, I’m a terrible artist and I’ve always been insecure about my own mediocrity. Passpartout exposes me to a world of people who, while harsh at times, appreciate my bad art most of the time.
DATA WING from Dan Vogt is an Android racing game that boasts, surprisingly, some of the best writing we’ve seen in a game this year. The level-based racing gameplay is excellent on its own, but the dialogue, provided by the rather snarky AI (or is it?) “Mother,” takes it to another level.
