Miandro’s Spotlight is a weekly blog update rounding up what has been happening to the blog such as the latest posts, what’s caught my eye, and what I plan for the near future.
Earlier today, the indie developer for To The Moon, Kan Gao, has released a two-minute trailer for the game’s sequel, Finding Paradise.
To The Moon is an indie adventure game focusing mainly on its story and puzzle-solving gameplay centered around two doctors, Neil and Eva, as they traverse the memories of their client, Johnny Wyles, in order to fulfill his childhood dreams of becoming an astronaut.
The game’s sequel, Finding Paradise, promises the same focus on story, music and puzzle-solving as the doctors, Neil and Eva, traverse through a dying patient’s memories to artificially fulfill their last wish.
Granted, the first minute doesn’t start in a serious tone. However, the trailer shows that the game will be released on December 14th. It will continue where we left off from the first To The Moon game, but now, the story will be focused on two key points: a dying patient, and a repeatedly referenced island throughout the trailer.
Here’s hoping that Finding Paradise will offer the same amount of feels as it did in its predecessor, To The Moon.
As of late, an article headline regarding a Japanese politician linking anime, gaming and violent tendencies among criminals has ended up in my Twitter timeline. This discussion was raised in a political discussion talk show after mention of a recent serial murder case that happened in Japan’s Kenagawa Prefecture where police have reported to have discovered dead bodies in the criminal’s apartment.
WEEKLY WRAP-UP – With all the new anime and gaming titles coming out, this week has been pretty material-intensive for me. Not knowing where to begin with the new anime season, or have the means to access newly released games, it has become a struggle for me to find compelling content to write about.
IN THE SPOTLIGHT – It is, indeed, a rare occasion for me to cover a video game. The majority of the stuff I write about is mostly about anime and its community. However, something as interesting as Call of Duty WW2‘s release was to good to be ignored. After binging through videos of the game’s walkthrough, I can see that it can contend with its rival, Battlefield 1.
