Octahedron: Transfixed Edition is a game that stops being a game very early on, For, with its fast-paced gameplay, The game becomes a mental and physical challenge. You need to have amazing reflexes and ability to think on the fly in order to do the harder levels. For us normal people, The game still maintains the difficulty and charm. You will just get more stressed about playing it! In short Octahedron: Transfixed Edition is a speedrunners wet dream.

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!
