As a fan of the previous OPUS titles, each of which offered up their own unique sort of world with rich characters and story elements to engage with, I expected something along those same lines with Starsong. Weirdly, I sort of got a little of column A and column B with this new entry, which certainly has a very story-focused experience and somewhat simple but quite beautiful art style… but a story that feels mostly disconnected from what has come before aside from its general tone. The good news is that for anyone unfamiliar with the other titles you shouldn’t hesitate worrying you’ll be at a disadvantage… I was initially just as lost as you may be getting to know the situation in the story here. One consistent element is the smart periodic use of pretty unique puzzles, in this case making wonderful use of the title Starsongs in a pleasing way. It’s just a nice experience to get lost in, and once you get past the hump of trying to get your arms around what’s going on in this world and what you’re trying to accomplish it manages to take you on a wonderful and satisfying journey if you don’t mind its generally laid back pace.
