Developed by Moon Studios, a trò chơi development team spread across the world, Ori và the Blind Forest tells the story of a young guardian spirit named Ori. Child of the great tree who presides over the Forest of Nibel, Ori is separated from his tree-dad only lớn be found by Naru, a teddy-bear lượt thích creature who raises him as her own. In his absence, a darkness falls over the forest thanks to the dark owl, Kuro (and yes, the dark owl’s name is the Japanese word for ‘black’). Setting out on his own, Ori seeks lớn revive the great tree & bring light back lớn the forest.

Along the way, you’ll find yourself exploring the various corners of the forest in a 2.5D, Metroidvania-style world. You’ll encounter smaller trees that will unlock new abilities for Ori và Sein (his tiny light-spirit guide) to lớn help them traverse the forest and defend themselves from the monsters that have taken it over. Many of the abilities you unlock will feel familiar to those who have played other games within this genre – wall jumps, double jumps, charge attacks & so on all make an appearance. Some of the abilities are a bit more of a surprise, và certainly help mix up the gameplay in fun ways. I won’t spoil any for those yet to lớn play, but there is at least a bit of variation on the components we’re used to lớn in this genre.
