Röki Is a Spooky Bedtime Story Disguised as a Game
A long time ago, point-and-click adventures used to be one of the biggest gaming genres in history. Today, they’re often seen as more tedious versions of visual novels. Röki aims to change that perception with a serene-looking art style, Scandinavian folklore brought to life and a subtly spooky story.
Under the Bed
Not a whole lot is known about Röki’s story. According to indie developers, Polygon Treehouse, the story is about courage, adventure, folklore and monsters that shouldn’t exist but actually do. If that last part makes you check if something’s underneath your bed, then Röki may be for you. The description, coupled with trailer footage gives off a kind of coming-of-age vibe. Young protagonist, Tove, is seen wandering around open snowy areas, moonlit houses and dark forests. It’s likely that the main story revolves around facing your fears by exploring the unknown and uncovering a mystery long hidden away.
Whatever the case may be, the story of Röki is surely going to be a riveting adventure.
Image of Artists
The two minds behind Polygon Treehouse and Röki, Tom and Alex, are both artists. It stands to reason that one of the main attractions of the game are going to be its visuals. The most striking part are the soft, subtly moody color palettes used to depict environments. They effectively set an eerie yet intriguing tone that peaks one’s curiosity. Characters are given brighter tones which contrast with the backdrops, establishing their prominence. At the same time, these brighter splashes make the young protagonist appear like a symbol for hope; like a light in the void. It’s clear that the art direction of Röki has been a key component in its development.
All the Trappings
According to early previews, Röki plays exactly how you would expect a point-and-click adventure to play; and that’s quite alright. A big part of the genre has always been its simplicity. You merely need to click on items around you to add them to your inventory and combine them or use them. In some ways, adventure games like Röki are a breath of fresh air in an industry where more and more complexity seems to be introduced regularly.
