The first game I am trying out for my blog posts is a demo from Mind Over Matter Entertainment. It is called Road to Recovery A Personal 2D Adventure Game. The first thing that sticks out to me is the story. Battling addiction and dealing with life around addiction is a serious topic to take on. Starting off waking up after a bender of some sort you leave your apartment trying to figure out what has happened the night before. It is at this point where the background of the city and music come together as you are jumping around the level. I enjoyed seeing all the different sayings graffitied on the wall and thought that was a nice touch. The piano music that you hear while playing also sets the tone of the somber world you are in.
As you are playing you meet neighbors and have the chance to question what happened the night before. This game has an interesting start to a story that I am sure gets you emotionally invested by the end. The artwork of this game so far looks great and the soundtrack while you play brings it all together. The demo was short and sweet, but I look forward to the full release so we can see how our road to recovery turns out.
