About Kirk Hiner

Raised on Intellivision and Star Frontiers, I've been a gamer since I was old enough to say, "There's nothing on TV." There's still nothing on TV so I'm still playing games, and I likely will be until I'm able to retire to Wuhu Island.

Review: Dead or School (Nintendo Switch)

Review: inbento (Nintendo Switch)

I’m not entirely sure it’s possible for a game to be cuter than inbento. What could be more adorable and wholesome than a game centered around a mother cat making bento boxes for her kitten? But is it fun to play?
