Indie Game Reviews
My Steam Curator Linux Gaming Philosophy features reviews of games by independent and small developers that can be played with a controller on SteamOS/Linux.

All reviews are based on a complete playthrough of each game. I accept freebies but can only promise a review for games that hold my attention up to the end.
Review Showcase
Do Not Feed the Monkeys gives you fly-on-the-wall access to the drama of unwitting actors in their struggle through life.

The inaction implied by the title offers more of a suggestion than an imperative. Venturing deeper into each story arc reveals uncomfortable secrets unknown to anyone but you. Detective work is surprisingly streamlined in this game, with most stories offering a range of endings that vary with your ethical inclinations. While such mechanics may attract the attention of reckless voyeurs, others may instead discover a path toward enlightenment.

In keeping with other games from this developer, Do Not Feed the Monkeys features a daily grind to keep your health and finances in check. This addictive cycle absolves itself by keeping total playtime to sixteen in-game days. Replay is essential, if only to catch the full range of stories.

An unparalleled combination of puzzles, sleuthing, and management, Do Not Feed the Monkeys awakens our awareness to the influence of surveillance.

Picked up Kelvin and the Infamous Machine after reading your review. Sounds like it will be a lot of fun! :D
