Photographs is the latest puzzle game from developer Luca Redwood. Redwood’s fantastic body of work includes classics like 10,000,000 and You Must Build A Boat. Both of these games would make a list of my top 20 favorite mobile games, but sadly, Photographs just misses the mark.
Control is a game that really fired on all cylinders for me. I’ve grown tired of the narrative space that so many third-person action games operate in, but this is a world and story I just want more of. By combining that with combat that encouraged me to fight aggressively and strategically, Control shot to the top of my favorite games of 2019. I feel this is Remedy’s best work, and some of the best weird fiction ever produced in games.
