All three of these games, which a vast majority of you have heard of before, tend to be associated with a few common ideas: nostalgia, minimalist design, and (at times) brain-breaking difficulty. Over time, I’ve definitely associated Nicalis itself with these ideas. And that’s part of why I find NightSky so fascinating. This game is unlike anything Nicalis has ever published before, and may be one of the most unique experiences found on the eShop thus far."
