Ori and the Will of the Wisps feels so dang good

June 11, 2018 1 min read

Microsoft had a fairly stacked E3 press conference with reveals for Devil May Cry 5and From Software's badass Tenchu-looking action game Sekiro. I'm dying to dig into both! But there's another game that's flying slightly more under the radar than it should be: Ori and the Will of the Wisps. I've played a bit of the Ori and the Blind Forestsequel during a pre-E3 event and it just feels phenomenal.

The last game was a wonderful debut for Moon Studios, but the now-50-person team is looking to push things even further with Will of the Wisps. As game director Thomas Mahler puts it:

"When Blind Forest was done, we read through all the message boards and everything, read everything every journalist wrote, and we looked at 'what were the complaints?' The goal is: how can we perfect the metroidvania? How can we really push the genre forward?"
