    Explore the vast and beautiful world of Valley using the power of the L.E.A.F. suit: a fierce exoskeleton that grants exceptional speed and agility along with the phenomenal ability to manipulate the life and death of all living things.

    Valley is a First-Person adventure unlike any other. Hidden deep within a remote region of the Rocky Mountains, you find yourself bewildered within a secluded valley. With the power of a recently discovered L.E.A.F. suit (Leap Effortlessly though Air Functionality), run and jump your way through beautiful forests, dangerous ruins and vast environments; all the while utilizing the power to control life and death to uncover the startling secrets of the mysterious valley.

    Be forewarned, with these new-found abilities comes a daunting repercussion: the more you experience death within the valley, the more the valley will die around you.

    Valley might be more like a book than a video game; you pick it up, you experience its story to your satisfaction, you put it down. Given the low impact of the bulk of its gameplay, it’s almost puzzling that they bothered to include a few moderately challenging sections at all amid what is mostly just a pleasant jaunt through an appealing world. As long as a would-be player understands that this is not your typical FPS and it’s a somewhat shorter experience as well, there is something cool and refreshing to be found here. In a games market often trying to operate as either an endless buffet or a sticky-sweet dessert parlour, Valley is a satisfying meal that doesn't outstay its welcome.

    Valley is an enjoyable experience that tells a comfortable narrative through brilliant music, exemplary writing, and a creative setting. It doesn’t quite hit all the notes of what we ought to know for a satisfying ending and it is, unfortunately, plagued by a lack of map, lighting issues, and terrible frame-rate drops. Locomotion in the L.E.A.F. suit is often the most fun you’ll have in the game and it is wonderful to be able to take such a simple and heartfelt story with you in handheld mode on the Switch, however, once the game is done you probably won’t be inclined to play it again.

    It fully engages you throughout your journey, but it’s all over before you know it.

    Valley is a relaxing indie game with an absorbing narrative and beautiful setting.

    Its a very short game, but what is here is very enjoyable. Valley has some really interesting mechanics, with its take on death being particularly unique and poetic. The L.E.A.F. suit, which provides you with the ability to cheat death, give and take life, and traverse through the world with fast, fluid movement is a lot of fun to use.

    Another thing Valley has going for it is its great soundtrack, and it ramps up at just the right moments.

    The game doesn't do much wrong in its roughly 3 hour runtime, although it did crash on me at one point and its save system could be improved.

    Valley is a sweet little indie with some fresh new ideas, and it certainly doesn't overstay it's welcome. I highly recommend it!
