The Straight (Jacketed) Story: Lylian

Last month I mentioned Lylian, a very strange-looking side-scrolling platformer about a girl in an asylum who imagines her way out. There's now a demo of it, so you can see what you make of the straight-jacketed oddity. Episode 1 is now released, and there's no doubt that it's packed with original ideas. Very, very strange ideas. The big concern does appear to be the combat, which is choppy and unsatisfying. But the environments are certainly intriguing enough to make it worth checking out.
