Selected Articles

  • "The best way to describe it is as a somewhat lo-fi mashup between Nintendo’s Super Punch Out!!, a first-person adventure game, and a black and white noir comic, but that barely scratches the surface of its surreal atmosphere and tone, which combines humor and revenge themes with a pop art sheen."
    - Leonardo Faierman, Black Girl Nerds
  • "En Pato Box vivimos la caída y ascenso de un plumífero Boxeador."
    - David Vigón Rodríguez, UVE Juegos

    - Khee Hoon Chan, Unwinnable
