Ori and the Blind Forest is out in the wild, and you really should consider getting it because it’s fantastic. Don’t let its cute exterior fool you though, because this game offers up some serious platforming challenges that will require all of your skill and focus to conquer. Just to put things into perspective in regards to the game’s difficulty, I died ~950 times and took 14.5 hours to complete Ori and the Blind Forest, and while I’m not a pro gamer, I’m not completely inefficient either, so you will be challenged your first time through.
Anyway, the three videos below feature Ori’s journey up Sorrow Path, which is the part of Nibel forest that houses the Sunstone, which is a key item needed to enter the last dungeon, Mount Horu. This particular objective is just one example of all the various platforming techniques and abilities you must use in Ori and the Blind Forest to solve the puzzles that block your way forward.
The footage is unedited, so you’ll get to see exactly what it’s like to play Ori and the Blind Forest for the first time. There’s a ton of trial and error to figure out what you need to do to progress, so if you’ve played Super Meat Boy, there are similarities in regards to dying a lot to learn the correct path. Head on down below to check out Ori and his buddy Stein in action.
