As Victor Holloway, an antiquarian plagued by dark visions, players will cross paths with two cults tied to the mythical land of ecstasy called Lusst’ghaa. Be warned, though, as this game is filled with sex, violence, torture, and other disturbing elements.

Graphics: Interesting and unique locations, but character models and animations could be better.

Faraday Protocol is a first-person puzzle game set in the unique testing chambers of an alien space station. The game features very striking visuals and gameplay that is simple to grasp but flexible enough to deliver lots of interesting puzzles. Using the Bia Tool to absorb and redistribute energy is a lot of fun, but the game veers a little too much into button-pushing territory towards the end. Nevertheless, despite some repetition, we really enjoyed Faraday Protocol and can heartily recommend it to fans of the genre.
Gameplay: Easy to grasp but filled with lots of clever puzzles.
Graphics: The overall aesthetics are very striking but a little lacking when it comes to variation.
Sound: The audio is minimal but decent
