What to Know About Dystopian Video Game

At the festive gala of the prestigious German Computer Games Awards 2022 which took place last night, White Shadows won the Newcomer Award for “Best Debut”.

White Shadows throws us into a dark world whose dense, oppressive atmosphere casts a spell over us,” reads the description from the German Computer Game Awards. “Thanks to the successful staging and many lovingly placed details that tell a story about oppression, discrimination, and violence via environmental storytelling, the gameplay never gets boring, even in quieter moments. Puzzles and mechanics that appear in the course of the game provide variety and classical pieces of music that are only used in a few places set exciting accents. White Shadows is an audiovisual work of art with a strong message.”

Thunderful would like to congratulate the development team of Monokel and the lead producers, Mixtvision, for their extraordinary masterpiece!

As a fan for over 20 years, I strongly believe there's no sport better than professional wrestling. Whether it's writing about the sport I love or meeting those that have impacted it in a major way, I always enjoy myself. Outside of wrestling, I'm into writing, gaming, and tokusatsu.
