Gaming In The Wild #19: THE DARK EPISODE

by John Rogers


Still: 'Fe' (2016: Zoink AB)

As summer ends and night returns to Iceland, this episode is about three dark games. Fe (pronounced, roughly, Fay-uh, from the Swedish for "fairy") is a mysterious exploration game about animals singing to each other in a forest ecosystem.

Bleak Sword is an Apple Arcade title by Spanish solo dev More 8 Bit that will thoroughly test your swiping skills.

Finally, A Dark Room is a compelling and creative text adventure that begins with lighting a fire, and takes some pleasantly and unexpected narrative swerves.   

The episode is soundtracked by the gorgeous Fe OST, by Joel Bille. Buy it here
