Time Played: An hour...ish? (I'm playing on a PS4, and if there's a way to measure time spent on a game, I haven't found it)
The Histories Review
Thou still unexplored world of enemies
Thou step-child of Metroidvania
Sylvan game-designer, who canst thus express
A bloody tale more sweetly than our rhyme:
What digital legend haunt about thy shape
of deities or mortals, or of both,
In Dion or the halls of Agora
What men or gods are these? What NPCs loth?
What mad pursuit? What struggle to understand the combat mechanic?
What shields and swords and pikes that break so easily?
(What? I read things other than game reviews and trashy young-adult fiction, you know)
