Summary

World For Two is like a scientific Pokémon. You create creatures with genes initially, then once they grow, you match DNA strands with them so you can extract DNA. With genes and DNA, you use the incubator to create life, mix and match the different types of genes, and DNA to create new types of creatures. It’s a very relaxed game with no death states, it has a story that unfolds over time but it is still very chilled out. The soundtrack emphasizes this fact even if it is rather repetitive. I love how this game draws on a different type of game experience, it’s not the most engaging of games but it’s certainly unique and more on the restful side of gaming. I did struggle early on as I figured out what the game wants me to do, I never fully felt like I was in the know, or knew what combos to try. Creating natural energy deposits is fine but again early on I felt I ruined my progress because I didn’t know you had to use different Starflame etc so I did in fact start over. The game length is around six hours with a large chunk of that waiting for resources to spawn etc so it’s actually shorter than that. You would buy World For Two to have a unique experience or a game whereby you don’t need to concentrate the whole time and just take your time. I liked it after initially not really liking it so give it an hour or so and see how it suits you.

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!
