Definitivamente interesante, y entretenido; sobre todo en los primeros minutos. Lamentablemente me fue perdiendo mientras avanzaba, ya que los lentes nuevos y las opciones para editar las fotos no eran lo suficiente para mantener la mecánica viva. Lamentable, porque al principio de verdad que me gustó mucho.
It's like if Tony Hawk didn't have a skateboard and just had to walk around. The level designs in a Tony Hawk game are really impressive when you think about it. They take these normal locations and have to skateboard-ify them. Create rails and ramps that seemlessly flow into moer things to trick off of. Umarangi Generation is in a similar boat where it needs to create levels with interesting things to take pictures of and have those things work at multiple different angles. And it does a really good job of that. Its got excellent environments and excellent enviromental story telling.
ThorHighHeels also really knocked the soundtrack out of the park.
i really appreciated the visual aesthetic and the soundtrack, i really appreciated the slow burn of the story that gets told. i really appreciated that this is first and foremost a game about photography, about lining up a great photo.
i did not appreciate the controls, i did not appreciate the opaque objectives, i did not appreciate the time pressure, and let's be honest even though i'm the biggest doomer of them all, i'm gonna go ahead and say it: i don't think the game spoke to me along those lines (except for the very last line of the game) nearly as strongly as it did some other people. i spent more time hunting down "the word boomer" or "a kiwi" than i did coming to terms with being "the last generation" (who, let's be real, seemed to be having plenty of dance parties)
