Flood of Light has an evocative mood, but its narrative is ultimately as lifeless as its central character. The gameplay centres on a single concept that’s mundane, fiddly and gets tiresome quickly. It’s not a bad game per se – it’s just not very exciting.
Unexplored truly is challenging to play and to like. For everything it does well, there’s something which gets in the way of it being truly great. However, for those who liked last year’s PC version, the Switch port is the complete bundle featuring the Mithril Run, Ripley Run and The Dark Ritual expansion – if you can get over the technical issues, that is.
If reaching the anti-climatic ending is all you want from this title then you’ll be sorely disappointed. Its brilliance shines in the everyday mastery and management of its systems, in a fleeting but fulfilling experience of a productive and successful existence.
