Ori And The Blind Forest
Part swell platformer, part moving artwork, Ori is an incredible video game.
I remember, when I was a kid, how much joy video games brought me. My friends and I would huddle together next to the playground at lunch and pour over manuals for Starfox and Mario, desperate to get home and fire up the Super Nintendo. Recess was a brief respite from the heavy molasses that time was dragged through.
Ori And The Blind Forest reminds me of that feeling, of that joy. It’s a stunning work of art, a playful adventure game and a sweet-but-never-sacchrine morality tale.
Stop what you’re doing and get it.
