I just spent several hours of my life sucking small windmills, shredding bright vegetables, and crafting curious articles in The Deep Woods. All the while gaining power as I gather the ingredients to design an army of minions. Who wouldn't want one of these?
This is The Wild at Heart, a hand-drawn puzzle adventure game from Moonlight Kids. It is a game that provokes feelings of Alice in Wonderland and focuses mainly on childhood friendship and escapism.
Her artistic style reminds me of Song of The Sea, the 2014 animated film. This, along with her ASMR-worthy SFX, creates a feeling as if she’s surrounded by a comfort blanket, while you’re brought to this strangely nostalgic world by a compelling cast of strange characters.
Like the Pikmin series, it consists of hatching and throwing little fantasy forest creatures at your unsuspecting enemies. You'll find the undergrowth to solve the simple logic puzzles that are drawn, while improving your skills to get to areas you couldn't before.
Sounds like your standard puzzle adventure, right? But the script of the game has given life to this 2D world with small injections of surreal humor and a plot that is not the same.
Some of the elements of the story may seem exaggerated, such as avoiding the darkness because bad"But it's a gender-conscious parody." Your character is called & # 39; Wake & # 39 ;, a little boy who has walked through a tree portal for crying out loud.
And with developers developing updates called things like the “oopsies” patch, and dialogue with small text animations, I feel like the developers definitely had my humor. This is for strangers who are ready to explore a deep childhood pain and perhaps cry a little, in a safe and cozy space, with good friends (albeit slightly creepy).
It’s worth buying if you want fun and absurd adventures, and you can get it on Steam now $ 24.99 (£ 19.49). And remember what we always say … "Darkness is bad."
