  • I’m all for games that provide a solid experience regardless of how minimalist a way it may be pulling that off. That is, perhaps in all cases I can imagine except for Ord. There’s something novel about it, essentially consisting of simple short stories with a choose-your-own-adventure style. The thing is it is so minimalist, between the descriptions and your choices simply being one word and there being no presentation that helps to enhance the experience, that there’s no reason for it to be a game to buy. You could accomplish pretty well the entirety of the game experience on a webpage somewhere and blow through everything in the space of one sitting, especially since there simply aren’t that many stories or branches within them to begin with. I generally applaud games looking to be different and change the perception of what games can be but this is simply a bridge too far.
