The Sad Story of Emmeline Burns


A neat tale featuring romance and travesty

Divider (1)

Here we have a game developed by Sekai Projects and written and programmed by Emi-hime. The story revolves around the romance of 2 female characters taking place in the 1800s. The story is told from the perspective of a deceased Emmeline Burns who is now a ghost who slowly iterates her tale of romance and struggles of not being able to live a full life.

Music is quite ho-hom, yet does the job of providing adequate mood to the story unfolding.

This tale will last you a mere 2 hours but will leave you with quite a satisfactory feeling at the message delivered throughout.

Talos Principle is a rather unique title that has been spat out by a Croatian developer known as Croteam. The main object of this puzzle adventure is self-discovery.


The journey begins where you start off as an android and is confused about its present whereabouts. There is a voice from an omnipotent being who guides you around your current surroundings. As you continue your journey you learn more about yourself and life through philosophical texts at terminals. These terminals are based on the DOS OS which had more common usage in the late eighties and early nighties.

Oceanhorn: Monster of the Uncharted Seas

Here is a special title out I stumbled on for originally IOS and later ported to PC. It seems to have the aesthetics of Wind Waker with the charm of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past as well. At the heart of it all, it is a pure Zelda clone, yet a very good one.


The developers seem to be new as I have never heard of Cornfox & Brothers, but they do have some talent on board especially in the composer department as you will hear tunes by the likes of Nobuo Uematsu, Kenji Ito and more. So what sets this apart from just being a Zelda clone? Not much, but that is not necessarily a bad thing.
