Feature: Music to our ears

Röki’s music sounds as gorgeous as the game looks

Polygon Treehouse's excellent adventure game Röki is out today, and as you may have seen from my Röki review, I was rather enamoured with it. It's a lovely, heartwarming and beautiful-looking game, but its soundtrack deserves special mention as well.

Screenshot Saturday Sundays! Like some sort of digital bake-off, game developers across the land offer up their finest works-in-progress to be scrutinised on a Twitter hashtag. Once more I - the Mary Berry of screenshot judging - must hand-pick some of this weekend's best offerings.

Explore Scandinavian forest folklore in upcoming Röki

What’s hiding away in the dark, cold forests of Röki? A handful of Scandinavian folklore, some puzzles for you to dig in and solve, and “an emotional punch,” at least if developer Polygon Treehouse’s studio mission is anything to go by. So don’t say you weren’t warned.Here’s a nice calming “lullaby” trailer for your Saturday afternoon nap. It’s definitely not creepy at all. Don’t even…
