When it comes to the indie game front, Japanese doujin titles are probably my most favorite to observe. Usually known for putting together some harebrained ideas (like any creator) that should never seem to work out, I’m glad that they oddly do and really remind me why I like and play games in the first place. So why not make a game about growing plants? In an oversimplified nutshell that is the premise of Forget Me Not: My Organic Garden, a tale that follows a girl named Organa, that is working as an apprentice at her master Irene’s shop that specializes in growing plants…that produce organs instead of fruit? Yeah, told you it would be out there, but that is apart of its charm.
Without much fanfare that is indicative of many small indie releases, developer Smoking Wolf finally releases One Way Heroics Plus on Playism. More of an enhanced standalone version than sequel, the game features a slew of new improvements and additions that can be considered both big and small, but never completely change the nature of the game. So does this new entry manage to take this quirky roguelike to new heights?
