Have you ever wanted to murder psychotic unicorns as an adorable cat on a skateboard? If so, allow me to back away slowly while recommending Gori: Cuddly Carnage.

He also highlights that Gori was “a cat from day one,” and that while it could be seen that “a game came out with a cat that was very successful, so you throw in a cat,” that simply isn’t the case. “Gori had already been demoed a year or twoRead more on pcgamesn.com
