Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

age 8+

Eerie and imaginative puzzle game that asks ethical questions.

This is a wonderful game that requires reasoning to make progress. An excellent intro and simple controls help with the slightly complex gameplay. It feels like a blend of sudoku with hard sci-fi. The age rating is going to depend a ton on your kid's personality. If they like mysterious things it seems like a great redirect from other games or stories that may also have undesirable traits. I haven't finished this fairly long game yet, but I think I'm far enough in to have a sense of it's character. It also asks some serious questions about what makes us human and what alien life could be like. Overall, this games makes you think.
