Mordy: Digital is superficially a love story. It’s really about that feeling you get at 2 in the morning when insomnia has you surfing the internet checking out forums and pages you haven’t been to in years. I can’t remember the last time I connected to a BBS, but when I played Digital all those memories came flooding back. Downloading warez with my 56 kpbs (and less!) modem, listening to that satisfying dialing noise, playing MajorMOO and chatting strangers on bulletin boards. More interactive fiction than game, but one of the most moving things I’ve played (or interacted with) all year.

Nhex: The gameplay is bad and gets worse the further you get into it – fortunately it’s only about an hour long, and well worth it if you have any memories of dialing into BBSs. I think RPS’s take on it was pretty OTM:
