Quick Review: SLASHER, Interrupted (PC)

Another VN review up on Fuwanovel, and it’s of another brief horror themed visual novel by a trans developer. Yeah, that’s why I planned both these reviews around the same time. Anyway I can’t really think of much else to pad out the text before posting the link, so I’m just going to go ahead …

Quick Review: Cover Me in Leaves (PC)

So, for those who haven’t heard, I’m now posting my visual novel reviews on Fuwanovel, starting with a short review of a short game, Cover Me in Leaves. This post is so my normal readers know when I post something there. Click here to read the review. Anyway, I planned to announce that I’d be …

Standard Review: Actual Sunlight (PC/Vita/Switch)

CW: Depression, suicide. Just a quick warning to give to anyone thinking of playing this; this game is absurdly bleak. When I say this, I don’t even mean bleak as in it will make you cry or anything; I’m talking that this game can completely shatter your sense of hope. If you suffer from depression …

Standard Review: Clothing & Alterations (PC) (NSFW)

CW: Discussion of kinks and fetishes. Of the many statements I’ve made in my writing career, if I was told I had to choose one specific hill to die on, I’d probably choose the statement that queer people are better at writing erotica than cishet people. And no, this isn’t because I consider it the …

Amazing VGM: First Steps (Celeste)

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! The decision to make this piece was a bit of a last minute idea I had while listening to the soundtrack. It just hit me that this makes the PERFECT Holiday themed VGM for this series. And also, I’ve been meaning to get back into the habit of making these for …

Quick Review: Digital Seclusion (PC)

CW: Discussion of agoraphobia, depression, and suicide. I think it’s safe to assume that some of us, myself included, view games as more than just entertainment. The gaming medium has a near and dear place in my heart, and many of the games I’ve played have shaped who I am as a person. While I’ve …

Quick Review: BRKÖUT (PC)

I’ve spoken about my fascination with meta-horror titles before. Even in cases where these types of games aren’t especially good, they are still at the very least, interesting. For those who are unsure what I mean by “meta-horror,” I am referring to games that lean on the 4th wall, and where the horror at least …

Top 5 Games Reviewed On Guardian Acorn in its Fourth Year

Well shit, Guardian Acorn’s 4th birthday just passed! I’m still quite in awe that this experiment of mine has lasted this long, and I’m hoping that it continues to last. And now comes the tradition where I take one last chance to talk about the best and the worst games I reviewed this year. Okay …

Quick Review: Escape Castle Death Loop (PC)

Escape Castle Death Loop is a strange game. This game started out as a simple creation for the dev’s son to play around with, and over time, he added more and more stuff to it. After spending 100+ hours on adding new stuff to this game, developer Thomas Bellissimo decided to create a Kickstarter for …
