Tunic review
by João Carvalho

I know this game is compared to Zelda Link's Awakening, but I've never played that one, so this review is unbiased.
The game is so good! I was going to play it expecting just another indie game, but quickly found out that there is so much to explore and it is done in such a way that I was amazed and feeling like a kid again. Things like "wouldn't it be awesome to have a secret passage behind the waterfall" and there it is, the secret passage!
Also, the pages and the "not holding your hand" are a nice way to escape the standard "go here and do a quest" cliché.
Finally, the accessibility options are perfect and even better because they don't affect the trophies! I was afraid of turning ON the option to not have stamina, but as soon as I turned it ON, the game was even more perfect for me.
I'm planning on buying on Playstation to do a platinum!

I'm getting very very tired of indie devs injecting poorly executed Dark Souls-esque boss fights into every game. Very dissapointing.
What an amazing game! Didn't knew about it before, and what an incredible surprise. The game book mechanic is genius, and the puzzles are all great (even if some of them are crazy bullshit!). With an option to make your own annotations in the book and a better fast travel option, this one would've been easily a 10/10.

So yeah, 9/10 made me feel like a dumbass.
