Hello! Welcome back to our regular feature where we write a little bit about some of the games we’ve found ourselves playing over the last few days. This time: Skis, cards, and impossible missions.
If you fancy catching up on some of the older editions of What we’ve been playing,
here’s our archive.
Steep is one of those beautiful games that lives so luxuriously in the mind. Long runs, the swish of passing trees, the crunch of compacted snow. Ubisoft approached winter sports in a very Ubisoft way: what if you could have all of them at once? What if everything you did showered you with points? What if the map was almost implausibly vast? Going back into a game like this – a game I have such lovely memories of – feels a bit dangerous. What if I don’t love it any more?
