Patterns and the dangers of Early Access games

Linden Lab, the creators of Second Life and Blockworld, recently had an early access game out called Patterns. I use the past tense because Patterns is now a thing of the past.

When You’re Gone explores emotions, and that’s interesting

I wouldn’t say I particularly love horror games. I’ve enjoyed the Resident Evil series, and I loved Fatal Frame 2, but that’s the extent of it.
