Sunshine is amazing. The gimmick they use leads to a lot of fun moments and makes the game way more interesting than it looks.

Sunshine is great. Alex might not make it though.
KH has one episode and then was tragically cancelled (supposedly)

Kingdom Heartache(?) was weird, but fun. As someone who's never played Kingdom Hearts before, it was interesting to see its beginnings.

Steal My Sunshine is one of the best features GB has ever done. You can bet on it.

KH feature is still in limbo. First and only episode was good but the early game is not that interesting.
