Leo wasn't allowed toys as a kid, but now that he's all grown up he's going to take yours. He used to play by the rules, but then governments and corporations set fire to the rules and still expected him to behave. He probably would have if it hadn't been for his new friend Jerry. See, Jerry isn't human; he's a personalised marketing VR... and he's malfunctioning. Unhinged ultraviolence from Alex Paknadel (Arcadia) and Martin Simmonds (Punks Not Dead).

    This is only the start of Friendo, and we get the feeling that the relationship between leo and Jerry is going to be fascinating to dive into. If Jerry is an A.I. gone wrong, what kind of dastardly plans will Leo become embroiled in? Will he use Jerry to make his life better or to wreak havoc on the consumer-centric world? Safe to say, we're very excited to see where this story goes. Read Full Review
