Reviews

“In many ways, this feels like a celebration of the studio’s history and shows the foundation of the auteur tone they’ve developed along the way.”
Noisy Pixel

“It’s a game collection, a documentary, an act of personal introspection, and a baring of souls, all at once, and the result is something truly remarkable.”
Shindig

“I don’t know if Essays on Empathy will find an audience. If anything, it incorporates numerous design decisions which seem to impede its ability to find an audience. But it is a game which I, personally, am thankful for, and will be for a long time to come.”
