Critic Reviews for Soul Searching

Soul Searchers offers a variety of other features to dabble with. You could play the main story alone, like I did, or you could play with up to three other players. This can be both fun and challenging as there will suddenly be more mouths to feed upon the tiny boat. But I could also imagine it being a lot of fun as someone could be a navigator dedicated to keeping an eye on the map and binoculars whilst someone else could be focused on catching fish and keeping food supplies up. This multiplayer mode isn’t just locked to the story, as there is a random mode that creates randomized islands for you to reach. I think this is a fun mode for those just interested in the survival mechanic of the game. Lastly, there is also a feature where you can play through some “artistic” short stories. They’re pretty experimental, and I wasn’t a total fan, but its worth checking out nonetheless.

Soul Searching has good music that fits the stage well. The simplicity of the game mechanics stands out. It conveys well a feeling of loneliness on a trip, although negativism becomes repetitive in the game. Controlling the paddle of the raft is annoying and does not encourage excessive play.
