Cocoon is like a puzzle game made by Valve
Plus, No One Will Save You has video game DNA
Yes, Portal is technically a puzzle game made by Valve, but it mixes in the FPS genre. Cocoon is different. It’s a puzzle-ass puzzle game. You play as a bug buddy who must zip in and out of universes contained within beautiful orbs that the critter can carry on its back like an adorable, spherical backpack. Or to put it plainly: You use carriable cosmos to solve puzzles. It's amazing — and surprisingly easy to follow.
Heads up: Cocoon is on Xbox Game Pass, so if you’re a subscriber be sure to download it for free and save yourself some cash.
In the back half of today’s episode, we discuss No One Will Save You, a new alien invasion movie exclusive to Hulu that reminds us a lot of Limbo and Inside.
