Ori and the Blind Forest on Xbox One and PC May Just Be One of the Most Beautiful Games of 2014

Published by Microsoft and developed by Moon Studios, Ori and the Blind Forest charmed many when it appeared at E3, and gained even more appreciation at Gamescom. Not only the game is a lot of fun, but it’s absolutely beautiful. (Ori and the Blind Forest, PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Don't know how I feel about this one just yet... Will pick it up on Xbone regardless

Have a feeling Game of the Year might come down to this and Child of Light. Will go down as the year of 2d gaming : )

Guess you missed all the retail games out or coming out this year.
incendy35  +   541d ago
Nope, I have played pretty much everything worth playing. Child of Light is GOTY so far, by a large margin.
dragon82  +   541d ago
That's fair I guess. Your original comment made sound like you were one of those guys who claims there are no games out. I do agree that Child of Light is one of my favorite games so far this gen. I just think that a retail game will win GOTY. It will probably go to Destiny.
TRD4L1fe  +   541d ago
Destiny will win.

is moon studio a first party for microsoft or is it just this game?
n4rc  +   541d ago
They are a virtual studio.. Ms is just publishing. Maybe even helping with development but no, ms doesn't own them or the IP (that I'm aware of)
OpieWinston  +   541d ago
According to the interview with IGN...They're a First party MS "Studio".

MS just has to pay wages, no studio time.

They are a 1st Party.

Well... It seems ms acquired the IP.

But the repeated references to being an independent developer, and only that ign page saying they are a first party (and independent in the same page lol)

So I guess there's some question on that one.. Developing a ms owned IP would make them a second party no?

But if you guys are right.. that's cool.. Seem to be a talented group.
