    You are not truly alone in Corpse of Discovery, but the videogame shows how loneliness is a question of degrees and shades, and not a simple binary. It is through this three-dimensional exploration of the pilgrim on a foreign world that the game shows its worth.

    Because its worlds are so expansive and fascinating, and because moving across them is such a pleasure, Corpse of Discovery might have been an all-time great had it been a straight exploration game. Instead, it grapples artlessly with a theme that has been done to death.

    Corpse of Discovery is a big idea sporting the trappings of a little game – though a great concept with loads of philosophical waxings, the game mechanics and aesthetics just don’t match the heady, cerebral premise and subject matter.

    Corpse of Discovery has some interesting ideas, but the story feels a little bit undeveloped, and the lack of innovation and its technical issues prevent it from becoming something better.

    It’s unfortunate that Corpse of Discovery can’t capitalize on it’s strong premise. Instead, it flounders, attempting to be profound and metaphysical but never managing to be anything more than “meh.”

    There were some good ideas in the concept, but the experience is terribly tedious. Add some lame platforming, and what you get is a forgettable game.

    Corpse of Discovery had promise, but a not-so-great execution.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A good idea, just not the best execution. The gameplay is interesting at points, but becomes stale. The story is okay. But for a game that becomes pretty abstract and weird, some of the main themes of the story feel like they get shoved in your face just a little bit. My main gripe with this game is that I feel like it's way too short considering its price. In total, it only offers about an hour and a half of gameplay. Even with the new lowered price of $8 (it used to be $10), I don't think that it's worth buying unless you get it for much cheaper. Expand
