itch.io Recommends: cults and rest, jungles and islands


This week’s suggestions are an unlikely duo. One is a tense exploration of religion and cults, the opposite is about chilling out within the woods. See what I imply? The factor that unites them each is simply how good they’re: The Church within the Darkness is an fascinating fusion of stealth and narrative and A Short Hike appears like a recreation that I can come again to each time I’m pressured. Read on for the complete suggestions.

The Church within the Darkness

I’ve been following The Church within the Darkness for fairly some time and I’m excited to report that it’s lastly out. The recreation guarantees a narrative of infiltrating a cult within the jungles of South America and stealth motion gameplay to go together with it. It’s an fascinating setup that I haven’t seen rather a lot in video games. 

What actually carries Church by means of is its writing which retains the plot tense whereas additionally surprisingly human. The chief antagonists of the sport are a pair of charismatic leaders who I had no bother imagining being profitable in actual life and supply a robust incentive so that you can proceed your jaunt by means of the compound. If you’ve any curiosity in cults, sneaking, or recreation narratives, that is one which must be in your wishlist.

A Short Hike

For full tonal whiplash we’ve got A Short Hike. I’m at all times excited to loosen up and A Short Hike is ticking all of the packing containers. The complete recreation takes place on an island park and also you’re capable of discover in any method you need: strolling, mountain climbing, or flying. Yep, flying. You play as an anthropomorphized fowl so that you’re capable of traverse the island in additional game-y methods than a traditional walk-em-up. There are lots of various things to search out on the island from fishing spots to pleasant hikers, which provides to what may be my new favourite rest recreation. Your journey ends once you climb up the mountain within the middle of the island however at no level does A Short Hike drive your hand. You can take your time exploring the island at no matter tempo feels most comfy for you and I actually admire it. A brief hike is a bite-sized delight that snuck up on me in all the precise methods.
