My review is live: Alcarys Complex review
I’ve reviewed over 170 games thus far, but Alcarys Complex is going to be the hardest review yet. Not because it’s particularly complicated, though it certainly has its odd little complexities, but rather, because I have to find some way to reconcile my enjoyment of the game with all of the bugs and miscellaneous issues (including a few centered around the writing) that I faced. The sheer number of problems I had to deal with would be enough to doom just about any other game, yet I was able to—mostly—overlook them in this game’s case. Why? I honestly don’t know. It’s just weirdly charming and unlike anything else I’ve played, so I kept coming back for more despite the seemingly endless problems.
