So the gaming sect of Tumblr (Note: "off (game)" and character name tags WILL pull up some NSFW rule 34.) seemed to be somewhat buzzing about an old-school, indie RPG called "OFF" made by French "developer"(?) Mortis Ghost, using the RPG Maker program.
Trying to quell my addiction to Team Fortress 2 I decided to give the game a shot as I was really curious about all these mentions of some of the scenes or the ending hitting the reviewers in "the feels."
As expected of any game made with a Gameboy-graphic-ed development tool, the fights were generally repetitive and boring. There are a wealth of interesting enemies that you fight - not all of them with names readily available. The bosses and most of the supporting characters all have interesting quirks about them. The puzzles and environments were all engaging for me. (Not much of an RPG player.)
The world and the story were definitely strange and interesting as is the implied past that led up to the current circumstances of the world the characters are in. As everyone else will tell you, the story is what makes this game and will (hopefully) keep you interested until the end.
I actually quite enjoyed this small vacation from my gaming routine. I hope to find more exquisite games like OFF in the future.
