Dyad: The Kotaku Review
To say that Shawn McGrath’s Dyad is intense is an understatement. The game may technically count as a mind-altering drug, and believe me, that’s a good thing.
In my video review, above, I break down not only the experience of playing Dyad but also where it’s roots lay and why it goes above and beyond them.
Try not to turn into a Star Child watching it.

What I played: the entire game, plus 5 hours trying to beat my own scores.
