OXENFREE is centered around a group of teenagers, loosely led by main protagonist Alex, who snuck onto — and are trying to get off of — a nearly-abandoned island that harbors a dark extradimensional secret. Its two main plot-forwarding devices: a portable transistor radio and complex dialogue trees.
Dandara, a Metroidvania-style platformer from Long Hat House and publisher Raw Fury, has been out on all platforms for a while, but I only just recently completed it on iPadOS.

When it comes to Destiny 2, I extremely do not like the Infinite Forest. I’m not a big fan of the planet Mercury in general, whether I’m playing Crucible, strikes, or the weekly Flashpoint. As of now, there are two exceptions, both temporary: the seasonal variations on the Infinite Forest, the Haunted Forest and the Verdant Forest.
