Indie Wonderland: Furi

You can sometimes tell things about a new game by its pre/early-release social media footprint. For instance, The Game BakersFuri was met with two very different responses on my Twitter timeline. Some people hailed it as a really good game, ‘incredible’, that sort of praise. And some people bashed it for being poorly developed, particularly in the area of responsive controls. It was either a possible game-of-the-year contender, or an unplayable mess that required sorting A.S.A.P.

You can imagine that, as a reviewer, this sort of thing has me salivating at the mouth. An incredibly polarized split of good and bad? And a chance for my testimony to be the deciding factor that finally, forever tips the scales? How could I resist?

After the break: Furi. As you can tell, my self-esteem is as great as ever. But will this game’s brutal difficulty break that down?
