Ori and the Will of the Wisps
Ori and the Blind Forest was a shining indie gem combining insanely detailed hand-drawn art, a heartfelt story, and a deeply moving score alongside challenging and unique platforming. The Will of the Wisps picks right up on that formula adding in the requisite upgrades every good sequel needs. If Ori can recapture the joy and heartbreak of the first game, this is a guaranteed winner.
