YYC Game Critique - Pinball Special


This month's critique will focus on two pinball-inspired games, Creature in the Well and Yoku's Island Express, both available for free with XBox Game Pass on PC and also for purchase on other platforms.


YYC Game Critique is like a book club for games, where each month we pick a new game that we feel will make for good discussion. Anyone can then purchase and play the game and sign up for the critique meetup where we discuss various topics about it. These can range from how the game was designed, how the game made us feel, any changes you would make, good and not-immediately-obvious decisions, and anything else you feel is important to discuss.

It's not necessary to finish lengthy games, however we recommend at least 1 hour of play as that's usually enough to experience the core of the game. The group aims to be as inclusive as possible, so we try to choose games that are at most $10 and available for PC.

This event is typically scheduled on the first Wednesday of every month.
