So far, I’ve had a lot of fun with Traverser. It’s been something different and refreshing to play. The art style is wonderful, the story has its lighter moments but also has a gritty feel to it, and it’s an engaging game that makes you want to come back for more.
The sad thing is that, like a lot of games, I think it’s not all that long. In fact, I think after this video here there might only be one, maybe two, episodes left to record. But, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, and the game is fun and has a bit of a replay value to it.
Last time, things left off with us having ventured through the sewers and finally coming across a giant octopus that was blocking our way. This time, after a few attempts, I manage to bring the beast down and get us into the Lower City. It’s here that we see, both literally and figuratively, how the “other side” lives. We also get some insight into the motives of the rebels, the plot they have, and gain information on the whereabouts of Valerie’s father.
Next time, we’ll explore Foss’s mansion and find out how all of this stuff really plays out!
