I’m wondering what games y’all have loved for whatever reason (art, music, story, setting, themes) but when you play them it just doesn’t click.
For me it’s Rain World. I saw the game on kickstarter and backed it immediately solely based on the art style and the gameplay footage. As the game came closer to release, obtained a publisher, and hit the shows I kept following it feverishly. Pouring over the backer updates on the player control system and ai pathing seeing just how much polish the game was getting, I was ready to throw hours and hours into the game.
When the game came out however I couldn’t put in more than an hour. The player character, the slug cat, felt aptly named as to just how sluggish you moved and the penalizing nature of player deaths kept me from going further. I love rain world, I love that I got to see it in development and back it. It’s a beautifully dark game that I just can’t keep playing.
So with that said I’m curious what are some games you’ve come to love from a distance?
