The funniest game you’ve (probably) never played

It may be coming up on being three years old but if anyone ever asks me for recommendations on something “light” or “fun” to play on PC, one of my go-to responses will likely always be “have you heard of West of Loathing?” The initial sell may not be the catchiest – it’s an indie, […]
