I don’t throw the word “literally” around lightly, but I quite literally don’t know what to say about To The Moon.
It’s not that the game has rendered me speechless, it’s just that I don’t know what I’m allowed to say about it. It’s only a few hours long, short enough that I inadvertently finished it while trying to figure out what to write about it.
Didn’t Minecraft already come out on the Switch? I could have sworn I barely failed to double-dip on that when the system launched. Maybe I’m thinking of some other voxel-based survival-builder game. Goodness knows there’ve been enough of them.
Utopia literally means “not a place.” I’m just enough of an etymology nerd to want to make the joke that Startopia means “not a space” but too much of one to let myself do it.
(A better title would have been Diastopia, but only about three people in the world would have known what that meant.)
With E3 coming out, most of the major developers are punting this week, and I don’t blame them. Anybody who would write something that could have a significant impact on mass purchasing decisions isn’t talking about games that are coming out this week.
I suppose my pick is something of a punt as well. I first played Flashback – AKA "Total Recall: The Game" – on my Atari Jaguar.
