Welcome to This is Not a Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.
Vidar is a particularly bleak RPG/Puzzler that puts players in the role of a mysterious stranger who arrives at a village a month into an ongoing tragedy. As if the harsh winter weren’t bad enough, a terrifying beast has been awakened in the caves beneath the town, and one of the villagers is taken each night. It’s up to the player to get to know the townspeople, attempt to solve their problems, and hopefully find the origin of the town’s curse in the catacombs deep below.
