Overthinking Games: the freedom of communicating in Wandersong

The central idea behind Wandersong is coming across things and singing at them, just to see what happens. Sure, there’s also this bit in the plot about the impending apocalypse, but no rush, we will eventually solve that with a song, too. More so than the story, the singing in Wandersong made me think about all the ways our brains connect to music, and how…

Steam may have flagged Wandersong and others as ‘fake’ for months

Valve's attempts to identify 'fake' games on Steam through automated metrics may have backfired, hurting the developers of some excellent games in the process. As brought up by Wandersong developer Greg Lobanov on Twitter yesterday, the well-reviewed, multi-award-winning game was flagged as an unknown quantity on the store. Until Steam somehow learnt more about the game through users interactions with it, it wouldn't be eligible…

Alyse Stanley’s 5 best games of 2018

It’s been a pretty stinking great year for indie games. We’ve seen the release of several long-hyped darlings (finally) as well as a few surprise hits that went on to dominate newsfeeds. You easily could have missed them, though, what with all the big budget map fest games making huge waves this year. I know there are about a million games demanding your attention right…

Wandersong review

You can jump on your bed in Wandersong. You start the game by waking up after a revelation: the end is nigh, and you can’t do anything about it because you’re just a bard, the most useless class ever. The situation doesn’t look good. But before getting out of your house, you can jump on your bed. And in that moment I understood that, despite…

Wandersong’s achievements are emblematic of its great attention to detail

Bard-based adventure Wandersong is, simply put, delightful. But though its colourful style and heartwarming story of hope in the face of adversity are excellent, it’s the little details that I find myself enjoying most. There are so many of them, scattered through every part of the game, but a really good example can be found in its achievements. Spoilers up to and including Act Four…

Musical platformer Wandersong makes its solo debut today

Bards are the best, and musical platform adventure Wandersong understands why - everyone else gets a big sword, or can throw fireballs, but the bard? They're going to sing their problems into submission, no matter how apocalyptic or dire they may be. And from the look of the launch trailer below, things are pretty dang dire for this little bard. The world is ending, and…
