Vasilis isn’t going to be the type of game for someone who’s looking for a “fun” experience with engaging gameplay. Instead, it’s the sort of title that uses the artistic potential of video games to provide perspective. It excels in this area thanks to a unique presentation style and is worth the investment for those looking to play something different.
This is a very strange game, and I can’t rate it very highly due to the confusion in the story. However, as an experience I found it fairly remarkable. The drawings, motion, and atmospheric soundtrack made it something I won’t be forgetting anytime soon. If I ever find a better explanation of what the story is, I may go back and try it again to see if I can follow along better. I would not be averse to wandering around this surreal environment again, and the nifty time travel feature you unlock at the end makes that a very inviting prospect.
