We interrupt this regularly scheduled treatise on the games on my to-play list to bring you a sudden and unexpected look at Illuminated Games‘ Golem Creation Kit, a game that I just sort of spotted on the Steam front page one day. The preview materials show all the aesthetic and graphical appeal of a Flash-based hidden object game, and I’m 90% sure the title is primarily a play on Fallout‘s GECK. I wouldn’t be able to tell you what made me look at this game and immediately decide ‘yes, this is what I want to review next week’.
But all the same, that’s totally what happened.
(Spoiler levels: Narrative, medium. Mechanical, high.)
(Game source: Impulse-bought it myself.)
After the break: Golem Creation Kit. Could it just be that I’m really into the idea of shaping inert materials into rad magical beings? Because if that’s the case, I have to wonder why I didn’t go into robotics instead of human-technology interaction.
