What's in the box?
It used to be that describing a game's aesthetic as 'boxy' would be a negative. Zarvot developer Snowhydra, however, would likely see it as a boast. Zarvot's story mode stars two sentient cubes named Charcoal and Mustard, who set out on a journey to assemble a birthday present for their friend Red. It's a quest that's equal parts...
