Welcome to another installment of Inspired By Metroid! This week, we’re diving into a game that helped launch the Metroidvania renaissance, Moon Studio’s 2015 masterpiece, Ori and the Blind Forest! Andy describes this game as “one of the greatest games ever made””, and this week we dive into all the reasons why that is. From the incredible momentum based gameplay to the dense map full of secrets to discover to the incredibly moving soundtrack to the amazing cast of characters and deeply emotional story and how it connected with us, we cover everything you can think of from our adventure in the forest of Nibel.
Come bask in the glory of one of the true greats as we deliver one of our best episodes yet!
