G5: The Seven Basic Plots - Rags to Riches
Blood Knot - This side-scrolling RPG caught my attention due to its setting based on 19th century Brazil. The story focuses on a young woman and her father, a drover, who returns after a long absence. They both set out to find a treasure related to trailblazers while being chased by his former comrades.
Now, I would have intended to finish it, if it weren’t for the glaring UI issues. An hour into the game and I came to the part where the text from the item menu vanishes during a critical combat, which gives me trouble to see what the heck I’m using. Having such difficulties in overcoming the obstacle, I’ll pass it off my backlog until the day comes when a solution is provided by the devs or the community, if there is any sign of the sorts. And that’s unfortunate for this game, because its graphics remind me of the classic illustrations depicting South American locations and people. I can’t recommend it for the time being.
