Restless Soul is an adventure game with excellent writing, funny jokes, and relatable encounters and predicaments with a touch of Shmup action. It is a slow game but it is an engaging game because you always want to read what’s next, whether it be the story or the sarcastic narrator throwing shade at you. The Shmup stuff is basic but it works. I like Restless Soul but I have to be in the mood for it as it is slow and full of fetch quests with a lot of stop-start action. You buy the game for the writing and stay for the writing, gameplay is alright as well.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
