It's been over 9 years since we were able to download Ori and The Blind Forest for PC for the first time. And, with more than 9 million units sold between its two installments, the proposal from Moon Studios and Microsoft Studios has become a benchmark within the metroidvania genre and platform adventures.

Welcome to the Nibel Forest

Ori and the Blind Forest is presented as an action-platform adventure with RPG elements and a 100% metroidvania heart. Our mission? Save the Nibel Forest and help a young orphan become the hero of his home.

The game stands out for its delicious, measured gameplay and mechanics. Between 10 and 15 hours of pure fun with gameplay as satisfying as its moments of action or platformer challenges. It's true that it's a somewhat difficult title, but its tight learning curve, character evolution, clever level design, and precise movements make the adventure an attractive challenge.

It is enough to play Ori and the Blind Forest to discover that another of its great strengths is its artistic section. First of all, the graphics and animations have been crafted by hand. Using a color palette that seeks a constant balance between Nibel's once colorful past and her current withered situation. A contrast that provides chromatic variety. Secondly, the orchestrated OST finishes putting the icing on the cake of a section that manages to transmit a story of love, sacrifice and hope with great success.

A delightful, and heartwarming, truly magical action-platformer adventure.

Ready to explore every nook and cranny of the Nibel Forest? It may not be the most extensive metroidvania. However, if you want to live a captivating and magical experience, this is the game for you.
