NEW MERCH SITE COMING SOON!

The utter state We Happy Few was released in is unbelievable. Despite a successful Kickstarter, Gearbox support, and years of development, this mess should never have left Early Access.

Time for one of our classic post-mortems. This time it’s not about one game, but three games and the studio responsible for two of ’em.

The Culling II abandoned everything to pursue literally the wrong thing, while Boss Key Productions’ Lawbreakers and Radical Heights were just… wow.
