Our next game is weird in a very strange and off-kilter sort of way. Which is not to say that this hybrid paltformer/puzzler/adventure game is bad; far from it. But it is definitely an odd duck all the same.
From the same creative mind that gave us First-Person Tutor, comes another game that presents a slightly demented look at a very real world event. In this case its public debate and you know what? On second thought I take back that ‘demented’ comment; this game is all too true to real life if the current presidential campaign is anything to judge by. *shudders*
There have been any number of games made in tribute to Terry Cavanagh’s VVVVVV but I do believe this might just be the first one actually set in the man’s mouth. Or any game developer’s mouth if it comes to that.
There. Are. No. Words.
MUST PLAY OF THE WEEK!
Sometimes I have a lot to say about a MUST PLAY. Well… Actually I always have a lot to say about a MUST PLAY (that is one of the reasons it is a MUST PLAY) but there are times when I choose to say little so as not to spoil the experience for all of you. As is the case with this week’s MUST PLAY, the long awaited second chapter in the Myosotis saga. What I will say is this: the second chapter of Myosotis is every bit as compelling, engaging, and completely twisted as the first. This series, in its second outing, continues to be a mind screw in video game form and I continue to love every second of it. As one of the characters in the second chapter themselves says “I adore that which is weird” and thus I adore this game. From gameplay to visuals to story to the haunting music (from composer and singer Hania Lee; be sure to check out her blog for more works including brilliant covers of TV themes like MLP: Friendship is Magic and Pokemon) featured in the game, this continues to be a first-rate and exciting series. Bring on chapter 3.
