Switch doesn't have a one-handed controller so I made one — This is neat 10-minute video running through the design consideratons, revisions, and details on creating a controller you can use with one handed. A neat accessibility creation. You can get your own too.

REVIEW Tinykin — "does a lot with a little, taking the ideas of the game's that inspired it and making something wholly its own."

Jordan Biordi // CGMagazine

REVIEW Ooblets — "an adorably sweet meal made with familiar creature-collection and farming sim-style ingredients, but its flavor is missing the depth it needs to make it stand out."

Casey DeFreitas // IGN

REVIEW Please, Touch The Artwork — "a masterful interpretation and adaptation of modern art".

Sean Davies // Finger Guns

REVIEW Gerda: A Flame in Winter — "tells its story with charm and empathy, whilst driving home the brutality of living as a civilian in wartime."

James Law // Gfinity

REVIEW City Wars: Tokyo Reign — "proves itself to be an impressive and immensely enjoyable roguelike deckbuilder that stands out well from the pack."

Mitch Vogel // Nintendo Life

REVIEW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection

Glen Bolger // SwitchUp

PREVIEW 'Dredge' hooked me with its uncanny blend of fishing and eldritch horror — An 'unusual fishing RPG' that's coming to Switch.

Cian Maher // Polygon

ICYMI RITE — My review of this new precision platformer.
