Kindergarten 2 from Con Man Games and SmashGames is a thoroughly odd game, one where Kindergarten is a very dangerous place. I'm not entirely sure what genre to put Kindergarten 2 under, it's a strange mix of comedy and puzzles and it's definitely not a game for kids.
Note: Copy personally purchased.
It's all about solving the needs of various characters, to progress in really weird ways. Serving as the sequel to 2017's Kindergarten, it sees you reliving Tuesday at your new school over and over again. This is certainly no normal school that's for sure…why did that kid have a knife? Why does the Science teacher have a gun? Lots of questions that you might eventually get an answer to.
There's some places where I genuinely laughed out loud, I'm talking about one of those unexpected laughs where the game catches you completely off-guard—like this:
Does it get the GamingOnLinux stamp of approval? I think it's pretty good, but it does require some patience. Screwing up a part means some annoying back-tracking which was a little frustrating at times. An incredibly quirky game, with a pretty sick sense of humour that I'm glad I picked up. I died a lot.
You can find Kindergarten 2 on Steam.
