Need a Change of Pace From Your Typical Gaming Fare? “Play” Arcadia

on February 4, 2012 4:30 PM

Here’s a massive change from the usual sensory overload most of us are used to from modern video games: Arcada, a text adventure from Jonas Kyratzes. It’s more of a “Choose Your  Own Adventure” book than an actual game, but it’s a surprisingly relaxing experience.

Even if it’s just words, there’s something profoundly cathartic about the subject matter and the general slice-of-life nature of it all. If you feel like you need to slow your life a bit and wind down, this is perfect for you. Check it out here, and maybe take a nap after you’re done. It’s what I’m about to do.

Allen is an utter whore of a gamer; he's completely open-minded to all games, be they AAA blockbusters or $5 casual children's games. His focus is on indie games specifically, valuing gameplay and ingenuity over sparkly visuals and ridiculous gimmicks. When he's not geeking out over the newest art game, he's out toning his sexy, sculpted shoulders while surfing epic 1.5ft waves, or having a good time with local, high-gravity microbrews.
