Photographs is the next story-driven puzzler from the creators of 10000000

Photographs is the EightyEight Games's follow-up to 10000000 and You Must Build A Boat, promising a collecting of unique stories each told through different kinds of puzzles and gameplay.

With pixel art from Thimbleweed Park's Octavi Navarro, Photographs is described less as a puzzle game, but a narrative driven adventure told through its puzzles. The game will be divided into five distinct tales, taking you on a journey between times, locations, and characters presented through increasingly challenging puzzles.

Do we need TWO Harry Potter mobile games? YES says our expert panel

Earlier this week, new outfit Portkey Games revealed plans for a second official Harry Potter title, this time with Jam City. Hogwarts Mystery will be a mobile RPG where you can live seven years at Hogwarts, learning magic in class and duelling in corridors.



This comes just a month after Portkey revealed it's partnering with Niantic to make a Pokemon GO-style wand-'em-up, Wizards Unite. It seems that 20 years after JK Rowling published her first book in the Potterverse, love for The Boy Who Lived and his chums remains at frenzy levels.



But is it all a bit too much? Does 2018 really need both Hogwarts Mystery and Wizards Unite? Will they be any good, and which of them will be best? Once again we hit the Reply All button and get our gaming experts to give their definitive analysis on what we know so far:

Pocket Gamer Advent Calendar 2017 - Day fourteen: Galaxy of Pen and Paper

We don't want to spoil the surprise, so we'll publish the complete list of our best games of 2017 after Christmas. That's right in time for the January sales anyway, so you can grab yourself some of them on the cheap if you don't win.

VS. Super Mario Bros is headed to the Switch on December 22nd

Yep, you read that right. Japan should be feeling properly nostalgic this Christmas as VS. Super Mario Bros arrives on the Nintendo Switch. 

VS. Super Mario Bros is the arcade version of Super Mario Bros (1985) in which you'll take up arms as either Mario or Luigi and a pal will take up the latter. I know, that was totally not obvious, right?

Not long after Mario Bros arrived on the Switch's Arcade Archives, this second entry is but one of many more to come. Of course, there's no sign of Ninty's ever-awaited virtual console as of yet, but we this is an okay solution for now right?...Right?
