Backtracking in a video game is one thing, but having it be with a slow character sounds absolutely dreadful for me.

Is it a bad thing that I automatically thought of Dear Esther when I saw the images? I dunno, every time I see images of a first-person non-shooter on an island, that's always the first thought in my mind...

It has a very strong Dear Esther vibe but it's more interactive because there's puzzles to solve, so wandering around is only half of it. Alas, those puzzles almost all involve backtracking. Slowly.

I don't generally mind backtracking when it's done well, like returning to areas you now have the ability to delve further into such as Metriod or the original Res Evils. That always came with a sense of foreboding. But Mount's backtracking is in place of better thought out obstacles, and that's pretty damning.


For us. For them. For you.
