I may as well not play the rest now frankly, utterly disgraceful from Jim.

BUMP

Because I'm still playing this.  And I'm thinking that maybe, just maybe, I might love it after all.

Some context I guess.  I got to the Ruined Atoll playing very slowly under my own steam, but there was always a question mark over whether I was going to carry on.  The Back Page Discord does a monthly game club, like a book club only everyone plays a game - and somebody mentioned Tunic was free on PS Plus so I pushed really hard for it to be this month's game.  Now it is, and I've played 2.5h in the last two weeks and made it to the Quarry.  That doesn't seem a lot but, compared to previous process and considering I've been mainlining TTYD and noting that I do most of my gaming in portable where the smudgy visual compromises hurt my eyes (breathe), it's a massive step up.

It's not the rock-hard bosses that appeal, although taking down the last boss was a palpable moment of triumph.  And it's not the atmosphere, which is still cold despite more details about the world just about dribbling out.  It's the finding daft shortcuts, it's the lovely aesthetic, it's the power curve as Fox Lad slashes his way through enemies that previously terrified.  

Also: it's having people to talk about it with.  No NPCs to talk to?  Talk to PCs instead.  There's so much in Tunic that feels like Gaming Moments to be discussed.  Triumphs that feel more like triumphs when talked about.  It makes me sad that we never had a community Tunic-a-long here, or none that I ever saw anyway.  

If anybody else starts up Tunic, do come chat with me about it, on Discord or here.  It's better that way.  In the meantime, I've got a boss I've heard terrible things about to die repeatedly against. No


EDIT: He was horrible, I hate this game now. But also:

I think I might know what you mean by this!

I was really lucky in that I had a real-life NPC to talk about the game with, which does help - and it was like the old school days where, if avoiding the internet, you could discuss secret weird things you found. I miss the time period where I was playing this.

I think I'm now fully into 'weird things' territory - having repaired my character, the game now seems to have gone full-on puzzler. Interesting.

Oh, and that manual? That nice little idea that didn't really work? Utterly essential apparently.
