Players take on the roles of Ember and Rime in single-player and cooperative multiplayer to solve the game's environmental obstacles, drawing on their unique skills to traverse through beautiful, puzzle-filled environments. The two will learn to lean on one another, their individual forces working to bring them closer together...or tear them apart. 2D ADVENTURE PLATFORMING Experience beautifully crafted 2D worlds with a deeply immersive art style based on the aspects of contrasting temperatures.

Degrees of Separation is a beautiful puzzle game with a lovely story of a couple with conflicting backgrounds just trying to be together but is let down by a large amount of monotonous scarf collecting and various bugs.

Degrees of Separation has a great deal of heart built into it. Ember and Rime bring a light but appealing dichotomy to the world that's fun to solve puzzles with. However, both narrative and gameplay pacing suffer greatly due to creative choices. In the right hands, Degrees of Separation could be a personal favorite. However, a great companion is required to overcome this game's frequent, repetitive shortcomings.

Degrees of Separation is a little gem in a panorama that is becoming more crowded and full of expectations.

Degrees of Separation opens like a touching fairy tale complete with well-written narration and a soft tone of lovers determined to find one another. Sadly, the game betrays them and the player alike by structuring progression exclusively around collectibles.
