It’s that time of year again! We’re counting down the days to Christmas with our own little “advent calendar” – one new game to play over the holiday season each and every day.
As the year winds down, things get really busy. We’ve got Christmas parties to attend, the end of year rush on work, and all the rest of it. But it’s also a time where we take holidays, find a moment to relax, and enjoy the company of others. This is the best chance to catch up on some key games that you might have missed from the year… or just play that multiplayer game that you’ve been waiting to get a crew together for.
Day 8: Monochrome Mobius: Rights & Wrongs Forgotten
With Christmas being the relatively quiet period of the year, with fewer new games being released, it is, of course, the perfect time to catch up on some of the things you may have missed through the year. I feel like a lot of people missed Monochrome Mobius, which was one of the more impressive turn-based JRPGs in a year filled with turn-based JRPGs, and yet it barely made a splash when it landed.
It’s part of the Utawarerumono series, which is itself one of the finest JRPG properties that almost no one has played, and features gorgeous everything – gorgeous art, gorgeous music, some really lovely turn-based mechanics and a great little narrative. All of this is why we’ve put this on the Christmas “to play” list this year. Leave it until next year and, once the releases start piling up again, you may well overlook it again. Don’t let yourself miss it! You may well be surprised by just how much you love it.
