Huggin' and a-kissin', dancin' and a-lovin'
Although it's not about the pandemic (and it's been in development for much longer than we've all been trapped inside), Haven is a game that came at exactly the right time, because its message is all about two lovers, alone together for the foreseeable future. Having escaped the Aviary – a futuristic...
Play with pride
Happy Pride, everyone! We're updating and republishing this list of some of Switch's best and most inclusive games in celebration of Pride month. Enjoy!

Well, not JUST like wine. You can't drink a book
I don't know much about wine, but I sure like to pretend I do, and I bet I'm not alone. Who else here — of drinking age, that is — has bought a red wine to accompany dinner, because it "goes well with pasta"? How many times have you been poured a glass of wine to "taste" in a fancy restaurant,...
It does matter
Phew! It's been a heck of a week, hasn't it? It actually feels like springtime now at least, but our eyes are poised towards the summer with the slate of new release dates we've been handed. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has been brought forward from September to July! Unprecedented stuff. Splatoon 3 also finally has a release date — a
"This update is special to us"
Back in February 2021 Haven arrived from The Game Bakers, a stylish game that's best played in co-op. It's ultimately a love story about a couple, with their relationship evolving amongst all the resource gathering and rhythm-puzzle combat; we quite liked it in our Haven review. The development team has now released a...

Featuring tracks from Haven And Furi
Haven brought an enjoyable time last month. Taking the phrase "star crossed lovers" to a new level, this co-op RPG saw us playing as Yu and Kay, two fugitives escaping their oppressive society, fleeing to a different planet. It's been well received, recently taking home Best Indie Game at the Pegases Awards, and...
Lovers in a dangerous spacetime
Haven's new launch trailer is surprising from the very first second, in which the ESRB rating states that the game contains "nudity, sexual content, use of drug and alcohol, and violence". Now, the violence we knew about - it's an RPG with combat, after all - but nudity?! Goodness. (We can't actually post the trailer...

Source is for the lovers
Haven made quite an impact when it launched last month. Developed by The Game Bakers – best known for their previous work on Furi – Switch owners initially missed out, whilst it arrived on next-gen consoles, PC and Xbox One. Thankfully, this romantic RPG is now launching for us on February 4th, just in time for a certain...
