Ori And The Blind Forest

Ori And The Blind Forest

 

This is one smart deep game developed by Moon Studios and published by Microsoft Studios,

directed and story written by Thomas Mahler as the mastermind behind this piece of art and

it is both produced and programmed by Gennadiy Korol under the Unity game engine for PC

and Xbox One. And the final art of the game is given by the artist Johannes Figlhuber and the

composer of the program music, Gareth Coker. This game was released back in 2015 on 11-th of March.

A few people teamed-up, but extraordinary result emerged. This little platform-adventure, Metroidvania,

single-player game has a lot to say and express in very unique way as the story in its background is about

a young orphan destined for heroics and explores a deeply emotional story about love and sacrifice, and

the hope that exists in us all. 

The story in plain view is that the forest of Nibel is dying. After a powerful storm sets a series of devastating

events in motion and Ori, a white guardian spirit, and Sein, the "light and eyes" of the Forest's Spirit Tree are

tasked to restore life in the forest. The voice of the Spirit Tree in the forest of Nibel narrates the story of when

Ori fell from the tree during a storm as a newborn and was adopted by a creature named Naru, who raised Ori

as her own. A cataclysmic event soon makes the forest and its food supply wither, and Naru dies. Newly orphaned,

Ori was left to explore the forest on their own. After collapsing near the Spirit Tree of the forest and being restored

to life by it, Ori later meets Sein. To progress in the game, you are tasked to move between platforms and solve puzzles.

The game features a system called "soul links", which allows you to save at will, and a upgrade system that gives the ability

to strengthen Ori's skills.

It is simply mesmerising how deep this story goes and how emotional turns it has. Simply one of the rarest high-quality story-wise games.
