ORD. is a special game that lets you choose your own adventure via three words at a time. The stories are uniquely presented, making it creative to witness and enjoyable to play. It might not warrant a second playthrough once you've been through all the scenarios, but it's a fun journey nonetheless.
I'm all for games that provide a solid experience regardless of how minimalist a way it may be pulling that off...
With its minimalist proposal, Ord. manages to establish its existence in the Switch library as a relaxed, thought-provoking game and, above all, aimed at the unpretentious and casual pastime. Despite some small flaws, if tried in homeopathic doses, this textual adventure is more than recommended for those moments when we lack something to do.

Ord. is a unique take on the text adventure genre from Mujo Games, where stories are told through three words at a time. Making use of minimalist backgrounds, visual effects and sounds, at each stage of its five adventures, Ord. presents you with a one-word prompt and two possible replies to choose from. Each choice made influences the course of your adventure as well as the ending you receive, making for some intriguing and often bizarre experiences. At any point, your decision also has the power to immediately end your adventure; as such, you may choose to play it safe or take a risk, but no matter what you choose, you are likely to be left scratching your head at the wacky outcomes. In no other game have I ever found myself bribing a raccoon, though I have felt robbed by one (looking at you, Tom Nook).
More words, less words... but much less, Andres Calamaro would be proud... or not.

I was surprised with how addicting Ord. truly is. It would be easy to assume that the simplicity would compromise content, but that is absolutely not the case. This is a game that can be revisited over and over, with a different outcome each time. My 10-year-old tried it and loved it as well. I love that he’s practicing his reading and comprehension without even knowing it, and having a blast! I would definitely recommend this game for all ages. Definitely give this one a try!
