What We’re Playing

Amanda– Recently started playing As Dusk Falls. Now, I’m sure this is a good game. It’s got so many weaving choices at the end of the chapter, it’s gotta be. But it didn’t grab me. I didn’t care enough about the characters to keep playing past the first chapter.

Holly – I’m playing: Klonoa phantasy reverie series on Nintendo Switch.
I played Klonoa as a child when it was first released on PS1 and I fell in love with it, in fact, my entire family did. The story is so lovely, Klonoa is a sweet little cat boy with winged ears who ends up stumbling into a mission to save the world of Phantomile from an evil spirit who wants to turn the whole world into a nightmare. With its groundbreaking 2.5 D side-scrolling environment, this game translates perfectly to the Nintendo switch.
It was a true blessing to be able to play it again with updated graphics and a new fun two-player interface. To my mind, the game has truly stood the test of time.
