Unforeseen Incidents

It’s with an unshakeable sense of surprise I write you this review of Unforeseen Incidents – which is somewhat fitting, I guess, given the title. A point-and-click adventure, the first from a tiny, unknown indie developer, and it’s…actually excellent? What? That’s not how the script […]
