I challenged the ruins. This game was at times intriguing, challenging, and infuriating. I can appreciate the uniqueness of this game’s blend of Metroidvania mechanics with complex notetaking , observation, and puzzle solving. I think at times this felt like the game for me, especially early on when progress was consistent and satisfying. Towards the latter half of the game, I became increasingly frustrated and impatient. Overall I’m glad I played, and I’m considering playing the 2nd game sometime in the future.
