If you love gorgeous visuals, folklore-inspired stories, well-written dialogue and solving puzzles, then I’ve got the game for you.
Röki first released on PC last year, but from today it’s finally available on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Priced at $19.99 or your local equivalent, this gorgeous adventure game tells the story of Tove, a young girl on a mission to save her family that sees her traverse a strange and fantastical land. Along the way she’ll meet many a folklore-inspired character, make new friends, meet some enemies and need to solve many puzzles.
It really is a fantastically-told story that will keep you hooked from start to finish. You’ll immediately come to care for Tove as you journey with her through a range of beautifully-designed environments. And on PS5 and Xbox Series X, those environments will look more stunning than ever; both consoles are capable of running Röki at 4K resolutions and 60fps.
I’ll leave you with the summary from my review of the game on PC, back in July 2020:
“With around a 10-hour runtime – although your mileage may differ depending how quickly you deal with the game’s tougher puzzles – Röki is a delight from start to finish. It’s hard to put down; its story and characters encapsulate you in their magical world right from the get-go. As you play, it’s hard to shake the feeling that you’ve uncovered something really special; and considering Röki is the first game from Polygon Treehouse, it leaves me very excited to see what comes next.”
