About the game
Ori And The Blind Forest Although developer Moon Studios offered no solid details on the upcoming Ori And The Blind Forest, due for release on the Xbox One later this year. The cinematic for the game was shown during the Xbox session in the E3 conference offered a tantalizing glimpse of a very attractive 2D art style complemented by a fluid look, somewhat similar to Studio Ghibli-style characters. Look for puzzle strategy platformer with side scrolling action, complete with puzzle strategy and visuals focusing mainly on dark and light colors, creating a stark contrast between the character and the environment as they run and fight.

However, a malevolent entity, Kuro, appears and takes Ori's mother from him, forcing Ori to explore the forest on his own. Initially, Ori is very weak and can only jump about. but as you progress and during the game, Ori will meet Sein, who will both guide Ori on his adventure and attack enemies.
