A peaceful adventure.
12 December 2018 | by Gamesearcher1See all my reviews

A game that I thought would be OK at best truly blew me away. This game is the personification of calmness, and I could play this game hundreds of times, and still enjoy it. It has a beautiful art-style, any screenshot of the game worthy to be placed in an art museum. The game, when you think about it, is a puzzle game, but serves so much than that. The prospect of travelling with someone that you'll most likely never meet again is a bittersweet situation, and it keeps you dedicated till the end. The soundtrack is absolutely phenomenal, and I see why it was nominated a Grammy. The music adds so much vibrance, and, sometimes, tension. It might be a dull, lifeless walking simulator to some, but to me, it's an absolutely immersive game.
