Year 2015 is nearing its end. Time flies so fast when you’re having a great time, especially when you spend a lot of your free time submerged in beautiful fantasy words.
Writing in this blog has been such an experience. Though I didn’t get to blog as much during the last quarter of this year, I was still able to play some of the best games out there. This is what I’m going to share with all of you right now.
In no order of priority:
The Room 3
It’s a grand escape. Creepy rooms, hidden puzzles, unknown elements working its way to ensure you can’t go anywhere. The Room 3 will forever be a part of your consciousness. It’s here to make you stay and tinker away into its secrets. And who is the Craftsman who seem to know the answers about this mysterious world you found yourself into.
Prune is remarkably beautiful. Rich, vibrant colors are used that contrast very nicely with a soft beige background. The overall theme is very minimalist with just enough texture in the background to give the visuals a bit of depth. Animations are very smooth and fluid. The game comes with a very relaxing soundtrack that blends very well into this game. I find myself wishing I could blow-up the visual for each finished level, frame it, and hang it on my living room wall. Everything is a beautiful work of art I would be willing to collect. Seriously!
