      Is this game any good? Not that I'll ever buy physical media ever again. I'm a twenty first century digital boy!

        Yeah, it's a "metroidvania" type. Difficulty ramps up pretty smoothly... Then spikes a little at certain places.

        Played 12 hours and got 100% map and collectables and loved all of it

        It seems like a cross between Limbo, Trine and Super Meat Boy and it's pretty amazing. Certainly beautiful to look at, plays very well with a controller and introduces you to special movements and stuff in nice steps. But some parts are infuriating and I could only play it in short bursts because having to play the same bit over and over and over to get passed it wound me the fuck up too many times. Still worth playing 100% true
