Review

Drizzlepath: Deja Vu is a walking sim that has a stunning atmosphere, and truly eye pleasing scenery as you walk the path up the mountain to discover the meaning of life itself.

It’s such a simple idea, we all do it everyday; walking, and all you have to do is walk; even though sometimes what seemed for ages, and I did get lost once following the light of a lighthouse. Though I was captivated from the start.

As you walk the mountain path, there are voiced narratives that give insight into existence, and make you think about the meaning of life and the human mind. Some of the narrative was a little too philosophical for me, however, it didn’t really change my experience of the game.

The music changes as you walk; sometimes playful, sometimes eerie, mostly it was soothing. Each piece of music made a connection to the moment you were in, it was almost like it was guiding you, and warning of any impending dangers.

The textures of the plants, trees, and structures were so detailed, I had to stop at numerous times, just to check out the detailing. A bit much, I know, But I couldn’t help it.

The sounds of the animals, water, breeze, and even the footsteps on the ground were so real. The level of detail and texture was not taken lightly, and I for one was impressed with the game being so short.

I won’t spoil anything, however, I just want to add that there were some pretty intricate looking, looming statues along the way that were interesting.

The lighting of the game was perfect, though there were times when the elements got a little too blinding.

I just wanted to look at the game and its pretty colour palette.
