“Gobliiins” review

This game is French. That doesn’t mean that it’s full of pretentiousness, baguettes and “le fromage”; instead it’s full of charm, puzzles and peculiar visuals.

No HUD, no speech, no useless text, just the good old visual storytelling in this groundbreaking action adventure. Be prepared to die a lot and then cry for more when the game […]
