Our next Stevivor GOTY award was a close one: best side-scroller.
In the end, Moon Studios’ Ori and the Blind Forest narrowly edged out Shovel Knight (which was a controversial title anyway, release date wise).
“As far as presentation goes, the game is GORGEOUS,” Matt said of Ori in his review. “The graphical style is rich, layered and full of colour. You’ll shift from cool greens and blues in deep areas of the forest to autumnal oranges and browns, helping to visually separate the different zones of the game world as well as the enemies and hazards.”
Stay tuned for more GOTY next week!
