I’m digging the world so far, as well as the way it’s expressed. I like the visual novel aspects, the art style they’re using and the way it expresses itself in their world and, as with all Supergiant Games releases thus far, the music is amazing. It feels like a steady blend of these thing.
I just don’t ACTUALLY like playing the Rites so far. I can’t find a good control scheme that works for me and feels natural. Playing it with its KB+M settings just doesn’t feel good. Using WASD doesn’t feel natural to me anymore, and their click-to-move system is also weird to me after playing so much stuff where RMB is what moves you around. Most everyone I know has played it with a controller though, so I’m about to try that out for my next Rite and hopefully that changes things. If not, well there’s no such thing as a Game Over for losing, so that’s reassuring.
It doesn’t help that, for a number of reasons, I’d rather gut myself than play a Sports Game.
