Hooked Gamers has posted a new review of Uncanny Games' OIO. Based on concepts from mythology and fairy tales, the game puts players in the role of a small wooden man awakened from petrified sleep. Hooked Gamers gave OIO a score of 8 out of 10.

The unknown is an interesting way to start a game. OIO begins by displaying its beautiful hand-drawn environments. This provides a fitting papery aesthetic, since the characters and large parts of the setting are made of wood. The twisting forms and watery bogs shaping the surroundings bear a resemblance to what one would imagine to be the bowels of Wonderland. Inhabiting these vast spaces are plenty of wooden characters, yet none of them show signs of life. A stray beam of sunlight penetrates this subterranean underbelly and causes one of these vacant characters to become animate. Thrust into this world without a clue and amongst such expressionist architecture causes the player to be wary of each step they take. Vulnerability and fear come hand-in-hand.
