    This looks really weird, but it’s Suda 51… I’ll definitely need to try out the demo at least.

  • Hugoku

    Definitely worth checking out!

    Grashopper Manufacture’s take on ghost and goblins… pretty decent for its pricetag (800 msp)

    Suda 51 brings us another interesting title. Played through the story earlier, now I need to play through it again to see if I can make heads or tails out of it. Good game.

      The demo doesn’t really give you much of a taste… how are the boss battles? What’s with the cat’s head grass thing?
      I am intrigued but not completely sure about it yet…

        Boss battles are the same as most platformers, watch for the pattern and attack. The story is pretty twisted if you like that sort of thing. Still not sure whats with the cat’s head grass, I think it’s just a basic collectible. If you go to the menu where you can see them all they will sing and kinda dance for you. If your on the fence I’d say wait for it to possibly go on sale.
