Ori And The Blind Forest

  -  

Ori and the Blind Forest was one of those exclusive Xbox One titles used to really sell the system – and it worked, at least for me. Ori’s gorgeous visuals and engaging reveal trailer really helped to seal the deal.

Developed by Moon Studios, a game development team spread across the world, Ori and 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 to be found by Naru, a teddy-bear like 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 to revive the great tree and bring light back to 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 and Sein (his tiny light-spirit guide) to 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 and so on all make an appearance. Some of the abilities are a bit more of a surprise, and certainly help mix up the gameplay in fun ways. I won’t spoil any for those yet to play, but there is at least a bit of variation on the components we’re used to in this genre.
