This game was primarily designed to be a multiplayer party game both online and on the couch, but can also play it solo like you see here. And the premise is pretty simple, I mean, you just wanna be the first person to get the treasure at the end of the level. However, you’ll notice that the rainbow color washes over the screen, see that there? Well depending on the color, it makes part of the levels disappear and reappear. So this game is constantly changing, and way more tricky than it looks. It’s also more about timing and strategy than really just running as quickly as you can. This Deluxe Edition that I got at PAX comes with stickers. There’s also a lanyard in here, so you can hang around your neck.
Also, it has all the DLC, and it comes with the soundtrack on CD. Next up is the physical import version of Syberia. Many of you are already going to be familiar with this because it is a port of a classic point-and-click adventure that I think got its start on the PC back in the early 2000s. What I like about this game is that it really relies on puzzles. This is as old-school as it gets. However, I also like its kind of cool, steampunk look to the environments, and also the objects that you mess around with. And I’m hoping that you can kinda tell from the footage I’m capturing here that they slightly upgraded the 3D models, which look pretty good compared to the older backgrounds. This physical version came out in Europe, and it’s pretty easy to find on Amazon, that’s where I got my copy.
But what’s cool is they also got a couple other versions also on physical, so they have a version that has the first and second game included together, as well as a physical version of the third game in the series. (wind blows) And speaking of multiple games that come on one Switch cartridge, here is Opus Collection. This cartridge contains two games. The first one’s called The Day We Found Earth, and the second one called Rocket of Whispers. In the first game, you play as a lovable robot that is living millions of years in the future, and your mission is to try and find the original location of earth. This game is a trip, it kind of plays like a telescope simulator, where you try to use clues to search the cosmos for planets that might be kinda close to what earth is described to be like. It’s a fairly simple game, it only takes about two hours to complete, and I highly recommend it. It’s got a really cool story. And then the second game is completely new.
