Sometimes I have a specific game in mind when I finish a series, but sometimes you get this a result of me idly wandering my steam library until something catches my eye. It results in even blinder Let’s Plays than normal, I genuinely had to search to determine where I even got this game from (a humble weekly bundle from last year). Pitiri 1977 is a pretty little metroidvania game by ILIKESCIFI Games, specifically it caught my eye because of the old tape case image in the steam background. The strangest things can get me to try a game sometimes.
Thus far the controls are a little wonky especially the form swap; it is both easier and harder to change form than I expect as a result I change when I don’t want to and often end up in a different form than I intend. This is kind of problematic in a game which relies on changing active ability to solve puzzles.
The other sin this game commits is the complete lack of options menu. Not only have I found no way of rebinding keys but I cannot appear to even change the in-game volume, this is literally the first game I have let’s played to lack such a basic feature and it’s pretty important if I want to get a good sound balance going for the video.
It has however been pretty and competent enough that I want to explore more of this station, find out what is going on and just where my little brother has been taken.
