The lights are on
Amidst a number of large, triple-A projects, a seemingly smaller game called Ori and the Blind Forest was shown off from Moon Studios.
Little is known about the strange action/platformer, but the early trailer shown at this year’s Microsoft press brieing showed some beautiful, ethereal visuals that seem inspired by a universe like the anime Princess Mononoke. Large fantasy creatures interact with anthropomorphized animal characters in a magical fantasy setting. The gameplay looks to mix action, platforming, and potentially some puzzle mechanics – but that’s mostly conjecture at this point.
We’re eager to learn more about this attractive looking project, and the studio behind it.
