Pursuing Pixels

037 - It Sucks Until You Get the Double Jump

January 20, 2020

Welcome back to Pursuing Pixels.  This week, it's ALL Metroidvanias—or maybe action-adventure platformers?  Whatever you wanna call them, we tackle a couple of games that we're checking out for the first time, and also get DJ's thoughts on a PP favorite, Chasm.  Before we get to that, followed by an open-ended Metroidvania discussion, we all sunk a little time into Ori & the Blind Forest in anticipation for the game's sequel, which comes out in a couple of months.  John & Kevin also take a look at yet another Metroidvania with procedurally-generated roguelike elements, A Robot Named Fight!, which is the game that sparked the discussion to begin with.
