Minimalism in games is always a bit of a wild card, sometimes having some surprises in store and sometimes making for a ho hum experience. In Soul Searching visually it is certainly old school, rocking a very pixelated look. With it being a survival game the emphasis is on exploration, discovery, and a bit of taking risks in order to make it. The issue, for me at least, is that it’s really slow to get rolling or feel like you’re accomplishing anything of note. With at least a handful of quality survival titles on the system there’s a sort of pace of expectation that has been established and Soul Searching being a comparatively slow walk really put a strain on my interest. If you don’t mind taking your time and are intrigued by a new world to be discovered though you may find it to your liking.
