    Wandersong is an unforgettable adventure and one of the most interesting indie game of this year. Bow down to the little bard.

    Every new story act and every location had characters that I grew fond of, and interactions were wholesome and genuinely funny.

    If you’re after a unique experience, Wandersong completely has you covered. The singing mechanic works perfectly, and while it may feel a bit too easy at times, the combination of the visuals, writing, and various gameplay objectives across a generous seven-act structure make for an incredibly compelling platforming experience that you’d do well to check out.

    If there’s one thing that could have taken this from alright to great, the game could have treated its mechanic as an actual puzzle instead of a gimmick. More Zelda-style instrument playing than Moonwalker-inspired song and dance.

Playing as a bard trying to save the world, this puzzle platformer delivers on as many laughs as it does feels. Everything from combat to trying to advance to the next area is done through singing, which leads to a lot of creative writing with the wacky characters the game introduces. For only a 20 dollar asking price, you get a lengthy ten hour long journey traveling the land as a wholesome bard, enjoying beautiful music of the world and having a lot of wholesome encounters. I honestly can't bring myself to say anything bad about this game, and recommend it to anyone who wants a good smile. Expand

    This. Game.

    I have just recently finished Wandersong and I cannot get over how good of a game it is.
    The game takes place in 7 different acts, each in a different place with different characters. Every act is the perfect length, so you get a beautiful breath of fresh air every now and again. The characters are some of the best in any video game I've played, each filled to the brim with personality and backstory. It's just plain fun to run around and talk to people. The gameplay, art style and music is gorgeous. The singing mechanic is used in so many different ways, wether your luring birds or using it as a light, singing is marvelous. No spoilers, but I will tell you that the ending is incredibly satisfying. Deserves a sequel. 10/10
