Shine – Journey of Light Review
Posted: 2 weeks ago.
Play involves guiding your ball of light to find lost friends. As you discover other lights, they join with you and help you along your journey. You must avoid spikes, falling rocks and other dangers but you never come to any real harm.
The game work for players of all ages. Younger people may play it as a simple puzzle game, but for older players, there is a power metaphor here for the different stages and challenges of life. The game is bookended with narration, but it's the unspoken interactions that are the most moving.
