CD-i Spotlight: Moses: The Exodus

A little disclaimer before we start. I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m not a religious type at all.

That doesn’t mean that they are not on the market but, to me, they seem to be few and far between. I’ve noticed that every first person puzzle platformer tends to have a theme since Portal came out. In Superliminal’s case, perception is reality, and … Continue reading Superliminal – A Mind-Bending Experience
