Saving the Sacred Forest

In a stream-line of games that I probably finished faster than the game developers think it should have been, I played Ori and the Blind Forest. Throughout the game, I had to prevent myself from crying. The beginning was emotional. The few lines of dialogue were emotional. The cut scenes were emotional. The ending was emotional. I honestly do not want to spoil any part of the game because it is an emotional rollercoaster. I feel like the most I can tell you is that you are a magical being tasked with saving the forest from the darkness. The story is moving, the art is some of the most beautiful that I have seen in a game. The only thing I didn’t like was the really picky platforming. It did get pretty frustrating when you had to have your jumps precise in pixels because of how tiny the landing place was, but again, that’s just me being really picky. I would suggest that anyone plays this game and keep a tissue box handy.
