So happy to see Gnosia get some well-deserved appreciation. I love that game to death, for all the reasons mentioned and more. There's an ethereal quality to the art that creates a unique atmosphere, and the futuristic-sounding score only adds to it. I think Andi nailed the mechanisms by which the repetitive gameplay loop manages to stay fresh, all the while telling a pretty engaging story no less.

Also, hard agree on Raging Loop sucking lol.


When you praised Gnosia, you became a great ChoiceBeat reader. But when you slammed Raging Loop, you became the ideal ChoiceBeat reader.
