Ori and the Blind Forest is a massive undertaking on a scale that I had not anticipated. Where I expected a simple platformer instead lies a Metroidvania adventure sprawling across a map that doesn't fully fit on the screen. From the Forlorn Ruins to the Ginso Tree and everything in between, this is a massive and beautiful world inhabited with wonder and danger.
Developer Frontier Developments calls this new game a "spiritual successor" to Roller Coaster Tycoon, which is quite a lofty bar to set for a brand new IP like this, but the game fills its end of the bargain quite admirably.

The Middle-Eastern city of Harran has been overrun by the walking, running, screaming, exploding dead. It's up to you to employ the mightiest parkour skills the world has ever seen if you want to help turn the apocalypse around in Dying Light.
Though Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris varies quite a bit from its more serious sister series, Tomb Raider, the bite-sized action with a classic twist is just as enjoyable.
