    The Black Mirror games are $2.50 a pop on GOG this week. Are they worth it if I'm not super into horror but do like adventure games and exploration?

    Huh, his new game was exposed in March. It's one of recipients of Bayern's funding program: https://www.fff-bayern.de/fileadmin...ldungen/Vergabemeldungen_Games_Maerz_2019.pdf

    It's.. an orc restaurant management game with dungeon crawling.

    Okay I was hasty: https://www.gameswirtschaft.de/politik/fff-bayern-orcs-kitchen-daedalic/

    I guess it makes sense Poki's new game is not in the stage of concept development after a year.

    OK, this is released now, and if the part of the description about classic adventure games is not the most the reassuring, I have to say the trailer makes me intrigued anyway, especially since it's on GoG :

    Well at least it mentions having puzzles. Not so keen on the klyukva setting though...

    It's an alright traditional p&c although with some annoying bits early on where the subject matter gets in the way of the design, notably you get a line of multiple fetch quests across 2-3 screens in a row and there's one or two questionable puzzles later as well but they have near-constant optional hint-lines and hint npcs that spell them out for you if you want it which ameliorates it somewhat.
    The parody isn't terribly hard-hitting or serious it's more of an excuse to have a Soviet-ish/Sattelite state-ish setting which is the more fun part of the game, later part of the story feels like it cribs bits/characters from Deponia but it's not terribly important beyond giving you a reason to do stuff anyhow.
